Favorite Commercials From Television and Radio in the Eighties, Products Beginning with Q
This is just meant to be a fun page in which people remember their favorite
commercials from the eighties TV. I think sometimes I remember the commercials
better than the shows I'm watching...

This was a commercial for a Nabisco snack cracker called "Quackers." These were like the Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers except they looked like ducks instead of goldfish. There was an assortment of flavors of them, including cheddar cheese and sour cream and chives. These were only out for a short while in the mid to late 80s.
Quaker Instant Oatmeal
There's a family out in the mountains. the son is skiing and he smells the oatmeal. The song goes like this: "Sniff, Snifferific, Quaker Instant Oatmeal." Then the son yells out "Snifferific Mom!"
"HOT STUFF! Flavored Quaker Oatmeal, (some flavors listed) and Maple Brown Sugar, HOT STUFF, Flavored Quaker Oatmeal, H-O-T-S-T-U-F-F, it's great, it's cool, it's hot, HOT STUFF!"
It's the right thing to do. And the tasty way to do it. Who doesn't trust grandfatherly old Wilford Brimley, especially when he suggests some sort of vague moral emphasis to eating hot cereal?
Quaker Oats Company
"The Quaker Oats Company Brings you foods...From Quaker to Mother's to Aunt Jemima. The Quaker Oats Company."
When I graduated in 1981, a really neat jingle commercial called "Quickie" was always on and it was a "sponge mop". It went something like this: "Just rinse and push as 1,2,3 quickie wrings right out automatically, no splashing or bending, it's easy.....get Quickie, the original, automatic sponge mop"
This features an annimated rabbit (not to be confused about the one used in the Trix Cereal ads) and continued today, even when in 1999 they changed the name to "NesQuik". The slogan--CHOCOLATE MILK? THINK QUIK!
Quilted Northern Bath Tissue
"Take Comfort In Quilted Northern Bath Tissue."
There was this toy called "Quints" which was five little dolls that were supposedly quintuplets. I remember part of the song went, "Quints, Quints, five times more fun, I love taking care of each and every one..."
