That kitchen! That horrible kitchen!
I have to ask, were the 70's fraught with hard, inedible bread or something? She makes it seem like that was the norm.
I have no idea.
Perhaps they were inventing things, like ads do today too.
Did you and your brother fight over who got to play the mother?
Heh. As I recall, we each did the entire commercial alone. Sort of to see who could do it funnier. My brother almost always won.
Mimicking commercials is fun, I did it as a kid and still do it today, LOL
Hmmm...I don't remember that one.
What product was the commercial for where the disappointed kid ends up saying, "Larry's mom made liver, too..."?
I need a Rodney Alley Rippy icon!
Oh wow, I remember that commercial. My favorite sing-a-long one was the Dr. Pepper "Be a Pepper" one (bound to be on YouTube somewhere.)
The ones I always find the funniest are the old "I'm a Coffee Achiever" ones, may have been from the 80's not the 70's, with people like Jane Curtin and Cicely Tyson pushing coffee.
At the risk of seeming repetitive, I point you at this post
. The linked archive contains several versions of the Dr. Pepper tune.

I never liked Wonder Bread. Wonder Woman, yes... but not Wonder Bread.
Which brother? Me? I don't really even remember that particular commercial. But I do remember being a TV junkie and being yelled at for lal-ee-dalling in front of the TV.
Yes, you! I cannot believe you don't remember the wonder bread commercials: Despondent voice: "Every day I see the same thing! Kids don't always eat what you pack for lunch (sob)." Soft sweet voice: "Mine do..."
