WARNING: The material in this thread may enter your brain and never leave.

I haven't watched Nickelodeon for a good ten years. But a while back I was talking with some friends about old jingles that are still in our brains long after childhood has left us. Anyone who watched Nickelodeon in the summer of the mid-to-late nineties might remember this one:

Write to me
Stick Stickly
PO Box 963
New york city
New york state
10108

It LOOKS like an address, but let me assure you it was quite the catchy tune, and I began humming it while I made my morning hot chocolate...how random is that!?

Another timeless holiday classic:

N-E-S-T-L-E-S~ Nestle makes the veeery best!... CHOOCCCCOLAAAATE

And who can forget:

Scruff
McGruff
Chicago Illinois
60653


Anyone else have some old jingles still lodged in the recesses of their brains?

"I'd like to teach the world to sing . . . "
(By the way, I used to live a couple of miles from the person who sung that . . . before she died in a car accident).

"Two all-beef patties, lettuce, mustard . . .. "

"See the USA in a Chevolet . . . " (This was before they wanted $10 billion from the USA.)

"Have it your way, have it your way . . . " (As long as you don't mind the 80 fat grams.)

"Double your pleasure, double your fun . . . " (Every guy's fantasy, twins.)

I have many songs from the 60s stuck in my head, one in particular I've tried to find but my youtube-fu has failed me in this quest.

It was for a product called Bounty Pudding (a rival of whatever that pudding was that Bill Cosby used to hawk). The commercial featured this cartoon cowboy character and the words went like this (if you want the melody, you'll have to call me on my cellphone for me to sing it to you):

Bounty Hunter,
Looking for the man,
Who doesn't like Bounty Pudding.
The pudding in a can.

And each commercial he'd ride around getting people to try the pudding and everyone liked it.

That's the right one, Pagey, and it's the recipe for a Big Mac. I should know, I made enough of 'em.

tomo's "Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce..." jingle is the Burger King one, meant to counter the perception (inaccurate) that McDonald's doesn't do special orders. They do. It's just that five times out of four they'll get them wrong...

Another one for you:

I wish I were an Oscar Meyer wiener,
That is what I'd really like to be!
'Cause if I were an Oscar Meyer wiener
Then everyone would be in love with me!

ETA - Wasn't it two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun?


This reminded me of the story of the Sesame Street Bus.

First the bus picked up Lester Keyes. Lester didn't have very good manners, but he did have bunions. So as soon as he got settled on the bus, he would take off his shoes and start picking at his bunions.

Next the bus would pick up Ross. Ross was a little slow, but that wasn't a proper thing to say, so they would call him special instead.

Finally, the two girls who lived next to each other and were both named Patty. Wow, were those two girls huge!






Well, that's the story of two obese Pattys, special Ross, and Lester Keys picking bunions on the Sesame Street Bus.

ChooChoo Charlie was his name we hear
he had an engine and he sure had fun
He used Good'n'Plenty candy to make his train run.

Charlie sez, "Love my Good'n'Plenty."
Charlie sez, "Really rings the bell."
Charlie sez, "Love my Good'n'Plenty,
"Don't know any other candy that I love so well."

And then if you ask me about what I did last week, I haven't a clue. Short term memory sucks. Long term memory is great. The problem is tranfer from one to the other. :)

Yeah, before the stuck the "8-0-0" at the beginning when they went national and threw the meter off.

There was another one from the Chicago area with the sung telephone number. Basso profundo. "HUdson 3-2-7-hundreeeeeeeeeed!" Yeah. They were still using the exchange.

Also from the Chicago area:
Nelson loves me.
Nelson loves me.
Nelson Brothers loves me.
Nelson Brothers loves me.

What is Blatz Beer?


It's of the sort that gives you a hangover before you go to sleep.

"The moist delicious brownies in the world-
Duncan Heins!"

Now that one is going back a bit!

a dysfunctional family that own a car lot
its best described as soprano's meets arrested development
gritty drama without the heavy violence/language of sopranos but with a healthy spice of comedy mixed in.

thanks... I don't like my odds due to my disadvantage of lack of exposure to jingles in the past couple years... I've done some research but ya here's hoping... could be quite a lucrative business deal if I get the thumbs up haha

There would be a percolator (aka coffeepot to all you kiddies) perking out "their" catchy tune.
Sorts like:
Perky perky perk perk a perky perk perk

Maxwell House coffee... good to the last drop

Hold the pickles hold the lettuce,
special orders don't upset us,
all we ask is that you let us have it your waaaaay

Or something like that.

Yep, that's it.

I have to admit that I taught that one to my nine year-old just last week so that I could also sing to him:

Moldy pickles, wilted lettuce
Shut up lady, you upset us
All we ask is that you let us
Throw it away!

I have to know if anyone remembers this jingle. It was from a commercial in the early 80s for Fifth Avenue candy bar. The theme was kind of like a 1950s style Grease musical, and the main character was a black-jacketed guy named Rocky. Ever since, this part of the music has played in my head. I can still hear the melody, which was kind of a doo-wop. It's not on youtube; I've looked many times.

(Chorus) So, why do you like Fifth Avenue candy bar, Rocky?

(Rocky) Because it's the bite that's right.

(Chorus) It's the bite that's right. Fifth Avenue-ue, Candy ba-a-ar.
