Ad's '59

Apologies for the delays between posts lately, (as well as replying to the handful of emails I've received), I've been very distracted with other things, but hope to get back on track this summer. So, here's a handful of fun Woman's Day magazine ads from 1959 --well, they're all fun except for the one featuring screaming, scalding pain! More on the way at regular intervals-- I promise! :)

I'm not sure Solarcaine is going to be enough to fix dumping a scalding pot of chicken fat all over the front of her body.

Becoming an angel just takes preparing a can of chili? And I thought it just took getting hit by a bus!

Fizzies!
I haven't thought of those in years!

It turns out they are making Fizzies once more. On their website under 'Fizzies flashback' they show the different Fizzie packages I remember- the wizard, the mad scientist, the witch doctor, the medicine man and the witch each dropping in a Fizzie tablet into an over sized glass of water and waiting for the Fizzie to do its magic. I don't remember the snake charmer playing is flute as the Fizzie dissolves in water though.
The new packaging isn't as interesting as those in the past, with a wizard kid holding a magic wand. Still, it is great to see Fizzies back from oblivion.

I was a bit distracted to when I looked at this and didn't get a chance to mention that
1) I love all the ads, of course. I could look at teeny bottles of Wright's BBQ Smoke for the rest of my life and never get tired of it
2) I really really love the Fench's parakeet feed box
3) what's up with the floating boy head in the The Toy House ad? Or wait. Maybe he's wearing a shirt with a wall of toys print on it! That must be it

I bought some Fizzies maybe 13 years ago. I remember loving them as a kid in the early '70s, but the recent ones sucked. Or maybe they tasted the same and my childish enthusiasm for the name and watching them fizz overwhelmed my tastebuds. :)

Carol covered my contribution with her second bullet item. The birdseed biscuits ad is my fave, but it's the box art at the bottom that's the best part of it. Great collection all round!

I actually saw one of those Teddy SnowCrop wall clocks not too long ago at an antique mall, but for some reason I'm remembering it being powder blue and not pink. Hmmmm...

My favorite thing is of course the Del Monte juice drink ad. Any ad featuring paper cuts-outs applied in this amazingly cute style automatically wins out over all else in my book. But I do so love the illustrative, triangular design / style of the Orleans Dog Food pup-- he can't wait to sink his choppers into that "steak!" :)

I like the bugeyed dog on the Orleans can too. Actually, it looks to me like that can might have been designed by the parrot biscuit box guy. I'd love to think there was one specific go-to ad house, with a house style even, servicing the whole pet foods market.
