commercials from the eighties TV. I think sometimes I remember the commercials
better than the shows I'm watching...

yo-yo ball is what you call it! a yo-yo that you need no skill to operate. I've recently noticed that they are coming back!
I just remember all these different kids popping their head up and saying "Yoo-Hoo"... and then an announcer saying something about Yoo-Hoo chocolate drink.
Ok, they would take the tops of the yoo-hoo bottles and try to like fling them in to things. It was a big deal.. flinging the yoo-hoo bottle caps
York Peppermint Patty
All sorts of odd comericals, they played them all the way into the 90's. Usual started with somebody saying 'When I bite into a york pepermint patty'...and going off on a tangent about being in the alps or skiing.
You are what you eat song (Time for Timer)
You are what you eat from your head down to your feet things like meat and fish and eggs you need to build up muscle tissue Uh Oh! Appitite control? More Protein! We need energy. All the motors in your body need a lot of fuel to go on Things like carbohydrates fats and proteins, vitamins and so on. What's left over forms the building blocks you need, indeed, to grow on! Yes you are what you swallow so the next time you feel hollow don't just fill your face with any old kind of treat This goes for every kid or 6 foot at the least Yes what you really are is what you eeeeeeeeat!
One of the Bod Squad series of shorts on ABC Saturday mornings. A nasty green creature sings: "The call me Yuckmouth, cause I don't brush, no I keep my teeth like this. They call me Yuckmouth, cause I don't brush. How's about a little kiss Got some beef in my teeth, got some chicken, too. OUCH! That's a cavity, hey that's new. So if you don't brush your teeth and (something thing) be a Yuckmouth"
I still to this day am unsure as to why i remember this commercial verbatim, I believe it was 1985 when YUGO first introduced their product in the U.S. The commercial went exactly as follows."Buy a little freedom buy a yugo. Go anywhere you want to any time you want, just get up and go. See how it feels to have your own set of wheels. Buy a little freedom buy a yugo. YUGO americas most affordable new car."
Another part of the song had the girl saying, "They smell like candy!" And then the little chorus came in, singing, "Yum Yums I love you so!"
"Yum Yums" were dolls that had glittery noses and they smelled nice. I remember that the song said "Yum yums you really shine!"
