They were a type of chip that had a bunch of air bubbles on it. The only flavors I remember are plain and sour cream and onion.
A short-lived 1986 orange-flavored cereal from General Mills. It would have been funny if this cereal lasted up until 1994, because I am sure the company would have discontinued it or renamed it by then. It featured "OJ Joe", and animated cowboy who rustled up stampedes of oranges. "OJ's! Roll 'em out!"
OOPsy baby was a crawling doll, "OOPsy baby is learning to crawl, she such a pretty baby, she crawls to me as fast as can be...oops oopsy baby"
One of the most memorable commercials EVER was an Oreo commercial that pictured a little girl and a little boy in a park. The tune was catchy and the words were: "Girls are nice but oh what icing comes in oreos. Oreos, the best because it's the grandest cookie that ever was. Little girls have pretty curls but I like oreos; Oreos, the best because it's the grandest cookie that ever was..."(repeat and fade out)
My bologna has a first name It's O-s-c-a-r My bologna has a second name It's M-a-y-e-r Oh, I love to eat it everyday and if you ask me what I'll saaaaaaay Cuz Oscar Mayer has a way with B-o-l-o-g-n-a
It was a tune of "Oats and Beans and Barley Grow" and it went: Oatmeal, Quaker Helps you grow, Oatmeal, Quaker Helps You Grow, Did anyone ever know that Oatmeal, Quaker Helps You Grow?
Quaker Oatmeal. Don't be urinated.
It had some men in the background singing a jazzy tune while the oatmeal was being decorated: "Make a strawberry smile." "Make a milk chocolate swirl."
Oatsy Oats loves it!
Oboisie's Potato Chips
"Oboisie's are O-Boisterous!"
I can't really remember how the comercial is set up but it is in a circus ring and there is like a trapese artist and a tite rope walker and a strong man... and the trapese artist says.."it's the chocolaty outer coating.. and the tight rope walker says "no it's the crunchy peanuts" and the strong man says.. "it's the big hunk of fudge" and a narrator says "Oh Henry it's the chocolaty peanut bar with the big fudge center or something like that.
Oil Of Olay
It will help you look younger too.
Oil of Olay
Guy approaches attractive woman, "Emerson High, 1975. You were in my class." She replies (with British accent), "I was your teacher". Guy goes (incredulously), "Miss Fitzhenry...?" Woman replies "Bugsy Brown".
Old Milwaukee Beer
I recall some guys by a campfire, maybe with marshmallows and some Old Milwaukee beers. I just remember one guy saying "it doesn't get any better than this!" Truely priceless! Maybe someone can recall the whole commercial.
Aired sometime in the winter(around the holidays) of 1987. A wife'girlfriend is in a department store smelling men's colognes saying "too perfumey, he'll hate it" then after smells Old Spice and enthusiastically exclaims, "He'll love it".
Every Oldsmobile spot (New York/New Jersey Area)would end with rotating pictures of car dealers from Oldsmobile dubbed "The Good Olds Guys" and a jingle would play that said "At your Good Old, Good Olds Guys" (1987-1991).
I remember an Oldsmobile commercial with Dick van Patten extolling the virtues of his Delta 88 sedan. The spot ended with the theme they were using at the time: "There is a special feel... in an Oldsmobile!"
This is NOT, your father's Oldsmoblie. This is NEW, generation...of OLDS! These shows popular people..and popular people's parental units (fathers)
One To Grow On PSAs
These used to run on NBC during their Saturday morning rosters. Teenaged celebrities presenting real-life situations such as pressures to smoke, drink, do drugs, stranger danger, and important issues such as what you can do to help out in your community.
One to Grow On
This a special NBC segment that would take place after the end credits of e every NBC Satuday Morning cartoon. This segment was more or less of a character builder, telling kids not to drive before 16, not to take drugs/alcohol, and how to be nice to your peers, etc. The segment would feature some 80s celeb like Mr. T, etc.
One-A-Day has more nutrition than any other vitamin.
"Operation...you're the doctor! Operation...you're the doctor...collecting all your pay!"
Kids are playing game... Operation. Each reads a card naming which part to take out... say... the funnybone. BUZZ! Red nose lights up. Then the mother comes down the stairs and hears the kids having fun. She chimes in "May I Play?"
Operation board game
There was this commercial I used to see a lot when I was a kid, for the Operation board game. It has Jonathan Brandis (from SeaQuest) and Danielle Harris (from Halloween 4) when they were both children and they were playing the game. The song went, is there water in the knee? Operation, then I'm the doctor for you! (That's all I remember)
Orange Crush Soda
A little league game is being played,and a kid who is up to bat, hands his bottle of Orange Crush to his friend, and says "Hold my Orange Crush, but donnnn't drink it!" and the kid plays through the game, his friend of course drinks all the soda!!
2 kids in a lunch line. One is trying to show the other how to be cool in junior high and keeps saying things like "this is junior high! You don't BRING your lunch, you BUY it." Then at the end the other kid says "You don't drink milk, you drink orange juice. Because THIS is junior high"
O-O-O-Ice Cold Milk and an OREO Cookie, They forever go together, What a Classic Combination, when a dark, delicious Cookie Meets an icy, cold sensation, like the one and only, Creamy, Crunchy, Choc-o-late, O-R-E-O!
THere is a board meeting and "Hurley" is eating their new product, the oreo cookie. THe chairman says that he needs a new brand name for the cookie and asks him. He answers "I dunno" with a full mouth and the director takes it as him saying "OREO."
Oh, Oh, Oh Ice cold mild and an oreo cookie this sensation(?)put together for a classic combination. When a dark delicious cookie meets an icy cold sensation. Like the creamy crunch chocolate tasting chocolate "O-R-E-O" Keeps your milk from getting loanly. Keeps your milk from getting loanly. Oreo and Oreo Big Stuff! (nabisco )
Oreo Big Stuff
The commercial had a bunch of teenagers singing about Oreo Big Stuff and toward the end of the commercial they would all be dancing in a parking lot.
The commercial had two kids eating Oreos and drinking milk, and the jingle went, "My best friend and an Oreo cookie, I like the crunchy chocolate, I love the creamy middle." Can't remember the rest of it but I remember the commercial real well.
I have, on VHS video, one Oreo commercial that features Jaleel White in his first appearance . . . .April 1984! (sings) "Oh, Oh, Oh Bright ideas and an Oreo Cookie. It's a bright idea to dunk or to crunch or unscrew it or to lick or to trick it, but no matter what'cha do it's true, it's fun to munch a creamy, crunchy chocolate O-R-E-O; goes great with imagination, puts the YUM in your creation. . . .(spoken) Oreo, and Oreo Double-Stuf Cookies."
"Who's that kid with the Oreo cookie? Crunching all the crunchy chocolate, licking all of the creamy middle. There he is with his friends and O-R-E-O."
I've only found one person who remembered it. It went like this.... Little Girls Have pretty curls, but I like Oreos. Oreos, my choice because... it's the very best cookie--ever was! Girls are nice, but oh, what icing comes with oreos. Oreos, my choice because... it's the very best cookie--ever was! Not sure if there was more, or not..
Aired in December 1986. A little boy between 3 and 5 years old puts out a plate of Oreo cookies with a glass of milk and a note that says "For Santa." The kid sits there, waiting, but falls asleep. Santa comes and eats the cookies, while the kid sleeps. then, the kid wakes up and Santa is gone. The jingle went: "Who's the kid with the Oreo Cookie?" Something else comes after it, but I can't remember. I may have to watch my christmas cartoons video, which has the commercial on it. Adorable!
I don't know when it was made, but there was a little boy singing "Little girls have pretty curls, but I like OREOs." Then there were other lines but it ends by saying "they're the very best cookies ever was." I wish I could find a site that would play that commercial. It was really cute.
It was commercial where there was a little boy with curly black hair, wearing overalls and was holding a fishing rod and singing "my bologna has a first name...etc". That was back in the late 70's or early 80's.
Oscar Meyer Bologna
My bologna has a first name, it's O-S-C-A-R; My bologna has a second name, it's M-E-Y-E-R...
Oscar Meyer Bologna
Oscar Meyer Bologna My bologna has a first name, it's O-S-C-A-R, my bologna has a second name it's M-E-Y-E-R. I love to eat it every day and if you ask me why I'll say..'cause Oscar Meyer has a way with B_O-L-O-G-N-A.
Oscar Meyer Hot Dogs
Circa 1980-81. This was one of the first Oscar Meyer Hot Dog commercials not to feature the classic "I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Weiner" jingle. Kids were still singing the hot dog's praises, but the new jingle was about a "Weiner roast" ("When you got an Oscar Meyer, you got a weiner roast"). I don't remember many of the commercial's scenes, except for one in which this little ballerina girl dances to the jingle while eating her Oscar Meyer hot dog.
Oscar meyer hotdogs
Jingle: "Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Myer weiner, for that is what I truly want to be,cuz if I were an Oscar Meyer weiner,eveyone would be in love with me. Cartoon line of marching kids singing with Oscar Meyer,flag. The liitle boy on the end turns around and starts singing " oh I'm glad I not an Oscar Meyer weiner, cuz that is what I dont't want to be, for if I were an Oscar Meyer weiner, there would be nothing left of me..." The litlle girl who was carrying the flag comes back to him and he starts singing the first song again.
Osh Kosh B'Gosh
You MUST remember the Osh Kosh commercials! They would go around asking kids to say "Osh Kosh B'Gosh" and of course none of them could say it. Memorable scenes included a little boy with a hand puppet, two little boys who were dressed similarly (the big brother says "Say Osh Kosh B'Gosh" and the little brother says, "No."), and a little girl with blonde curly hair. There was a theme song, too: Grown-ups choose Osh Kosh B'Gosh cause they keep up with kids Kids keep wearing Osh Kosh B'Gosh 'cause they keep up with kids They keep up (Osh Kosh) They keep up (B'Gosh) They keep up with kids Kids Osh Kosh B'Gosh That commercial generally featured lots of wheeled things, for some reason. There was a little girl on roller skates, some boys on bicycles, and a sleeping baby in a stroller.
Otravin Nasal Spray
I always thought this commericial was funny when I was a kid, it would show the bottle of Otravin and voice-over of a man would come on and be trying to say "Huxley, Hugh Huxley" but would keep saying, "Ugly, you ugly" until he squeezed the Otravin and the vapors came out and went up his nose and then he could say it right.
Great Eighties Ovaltine commercial with upbeat guitar band music and a man singing: "I can't get over Ovaltine... It's so delicious now. It tastes fantastic, WOW! It's a whole new scene, O- O- O- O-val-time.... I can't get over Ovaltine, I can't get over O-val-tine!!!"
Nice jingle. Early to mid 1980's. Have you ever been ashamed of your white socks,ashamed of your white shorts, or ashamed of you tights? The get Ox-y-dol and you wo'nt be ashamed to show its whites!
