Spanengrish’s Care Bear Countdown

So, the Care Bears turned 30 in 2012 (I was super out of it that year apparently and didn’t even notice). For those of you like me who were too busy being grown up to take a minute for our favourite bears, Lavender Ranger over on Spanengrish posted an awesome comparison of the bears throughout their 30 years in all their onscreen and toy incarnations.  And make sure you catch the explanation behind that awesome blog name!

MAD TV International Coffee parody

General Foods put out a ton of ads for their International Coffee instant flavoured coffees, one of the most memorable (read: sappy) from the 80s was an ad with a couple of women reminiscing about their Parisian high school crush Jean-Luc over elegant cups of International Coffee. Mad TV ran with it in season 1 and did a series expounding on a side of  Jean Luc you never knew… Disclaimer: Yello80s does not in any way endorse or promote the consumption of alcohol and is only including this clip as a parody and not a sales ad.

Hershey Rings in Christmas

Well, fellow 80s kids, it is now officially Christmas in my house- time for the tree to go up and the wreaths to come out and the endless days of keeping the pets out of said decorations. We haven’t had Thanksgiving yet, you say?  Well take it up with Hershey because we spied the Kiss Bells commercial and sorry but the floodgstes of Christmas have been opened!
