Mr. Bubble

Oh my goodness, this is the funniest vintage commercial I have ever seen!  Just pause the playlist at the right and have fun watching it.
"Tell her it's only 49 cents...she'll like that."  Autumn loves this commercial and so do I.  It tells a cute story, and is simple and quiet.  Okay, okay, so it does make fun of older people, but there are commercials today that offend more than this one!

In my opinion (oh boy, here we go) some commercials geared towards kids now-a-days are just too loud and obnoxious. 
They are quick and flashy, and my eyes have a hard time focusing on the product.  "There it is...nope it's gone....there it is with a crazy background...nope it's gone".  I recently saw a commercial for a children's party place, with the token machines, that serves pizza, gives tickets and has a giant talking mouse. (you know the one).  My brain got tired from watching it!  What were the marketing people around that conference table thinking?  Were they drinking too much coffee, or do they honestly think these flashy commercials are what children should be watching?

I guess I just don't remember commercials being so loud and flashy when I was a kid.  So what has happened?   As I have gotten older has the connection between my eyes and my brain gotten slower?   Or am I just to darned old fashioned?
Just a thought to ponder.

And seriously, why are there so many nasty children's cartoons?....We work so hard to teach our preschoolers manners and "social and emotional development" with great shows like Max and Ruby and Blue's Clues. Then, when they turn seven, we give them shows like Spongebob and Kick Buttowski that undo everything they learned as preschoolers!!!  What is wrong with this picture?!  As parents we need to be careful about what our children watch!
Why can't there be more cartoons like Phineas and Ferb? Long live Phineas and Ferb!! 

Well, I've certainly let my opinion know again today.  I meant for this to be about Mr. Bubble, but I guess I was feeling a bit feisty. Sorry about that, I'm stepping off my soapbox now. 

Tomorrow, something happy and crafty!
Have a Happy Day!
