Intergalactic canned pasta. Had UFO-shaped noodles, beef ravioli, etc. I believe this was a Chef Boyardee product.

I am being driven slowly mad by the memory of an alien-themed pasta. Specifically I am thinking of the ad in which a being that had befriended two human children exclaimed to them, "You Earth people put stars in a bowl?". It had a freakish trilling voice that I'd often made fun of.

I believe you are thinking of THIS ad, no?

Nope, that's not it. It was specifically called UFO's which I, for some reason, am still on the hunt for the retro-mercial.

I thought I was the only one who remembered those! They were discontinued in the 80's, I believe? I was starting to think I was crazy. My mom always bought me a can of UFO's and "Opera" cookies. :)

Yeah, I bet! I've been trying to find stuff online about them for like 2 years or something and hadn't been able to track down a thing. Nice sleuthing!!! I loved watching the commercial; still remember all the funky pasta shapes. Even at 4, I knew it was nasty stuff and refused to eat it.

Hon, you absolutely rock! You have helped me prove to my wife and son that I am not absolutely crazy. ..I think.

Update: I thought of the ad again, but this time I wasn't going to endure the mystery any further. Thanks to my stubbornness, I FINALLY found the darned ad! Here, surprisingly well if imperfectly remembered after a ***quarter century***, is the "alien" ad for what proved to be Campbell's Chicken and Stars soup. Google the terms "campbell's soup alien retro static", click the first match, then select the video right after the Cadbury Bunny... and then enjoy and/or join me in my slow descent into madness ;-)
Are there UFO's??? - September 27, 2010 - Report this comment
U.F.O. stands for Unidentified Flying Object! So, technically, there can be UFO's and NOT flying saucers with little green men from Mars.

Great point from "Are there UPO's???" guy. Yes there are, but does it mean they are from "Mars" and the like. Will look up your site "SAZ," but don't put mutch into what you're saying. Nothing personal. People should put their thoughts into words and not quote or paste sites.
