Was there ever a time CTA didn't have a budget crunch?

"We return now to The Ivory Ape"

How did Fuzzy forget to put that in the description?!? When I get my national radio show, I want that as my intro.

Love those unexpected gigglesnorts at the end of clips, Fuzz! Keep up the good work!

Now that I'm now a local Las Vegan, I see Anderson Dairy trucks all the time. I wonder if they still supply the Mac & Dons out here...

I'd swear that 3rd guy with the tie was none other than a certain Gunnery Sargeant from "Full Metal Jacket". The one & only Mr. R. Lee Ermey

In the opening of the commercial is the store front of a Woolworth store in some shopping mall with 1970's-1983 Woolworth logo signage.

1975 is my guess.

This is really from 1979, I know it.

I can tell you that my father, my first stepfather, & my last stepfather all had something in common(other than my mom): They all would have preferred the Bob Seger "Night Moves" LP. LOL.

What an interesting piece. I wonder if they still raise buffalo. I looked on Google and there is a listing for a tree nursery business owned by Lynn. I couldn't find anything when I looked up the Reeds.

There used to be a buffalo farm on Route 60 near Mundelein. I remember seeing it when my family would drive to Hawthorn mall.

Man, the McD uniforms were much better looking in the mid 1970's, especially on the females.

Once they went to that "common look" which everyone wore there, circa 1979, I didn't care for it much. Bland or tacky, perhaps?

Also notice at the 0:03 mark, is a vintage truck for Anderson Dairy in Las Vegas. (Local supplier to McD for their dairy or just a free plug?)

My guess is that this was probably produced around 1979, and it was played around the 1979-1980 period.

I remember on a field trip to a cider mill. While riding on our school bus going there, some of the kids on our bus, young as 7 years old (I didn't join in, but I did enjoy it) were singing the chorus of this jingle over and over, for approx. 10 minutes. And this was in the fall of 1979.

We never went to McDonald's on the trip, however.

Before this, it was:

"At McDonald's, You're the Only One,"
"At McDonald's, We Do It All for You"
and of course,
"You Deserve a Break Today, at McDonald's.

1976-1978, no earlier or later than that (just a guess).
