RETRO HALLOWEEN COMMERCIALS MONDAY - Elvira, Frankenberry and Count Chocula

Do you remember Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and her horror show Elvira's Movie Macabre? I loved this bee-hived, valley girl speaking black vamp(ire)! She was so camp and over the top and she was sexy! Actress Cassandra Peterson took that character and made a career of her.

And what about General Mills' special Halloween cereals, Frankenberry and Count Chocula? Born in the early seventies, these were really good sugary cereals with spook appeal. I've often wondered why Boo Berry never got equal billing, lol. Here's a great article on these retro pop culture icon foods by Pete Glover.

Enjoy my little advertising trip down Trick or Treat Town from the past:
