Dr. Pepper commercial – “I’m a Pepper, she’s a Pepper, he’s a Pepper, we’re a Pepper”… One look at this 1970s clip featuring actor David Naughton crooning about this soft drink, and you will want to be a “Pepper” too! 

Comment: The Dr. Pepper commercials of more recent years - I just find irritating. Especially the ones with that guy called Lil' Sweet. 

Dr. Pepper ... well, make that Diet Dr. Pepper ...  is my favorite soft drink and has been for over 50 years. And surprisingly, it's the favorite of my 14-year-old grandson. Anytime we go to a restaurant he will ask if they have Dr. Pepper. His 12-year-old sister likes Sprite. My other two grandsons - they still drink water wherever they go which is a much healthier choice.

Farfel the Dog in the Nestles Quik commercials - In 1950, while working a late show in a Wichita, Kansas nightclub with his human dummy Danny O'Day, ventriloquist Jimmy Nelson picked up a stuffed dog left by a patron on the piano, and improvised a low-pitched voice to make it talk. This gave him the idea for a new character which he commissioned from Chicago dummy maker Frank Marshall. Nelson named it Farfel, after the Jewish pasta dish he had seen on the menu of resorts in the Borscht Belt on his tour route. Farfel was an instant hit, and contributed to the rise in Nelson's popularity as he began to transition from live performance touring to television. Beginning in 1955, Farfel sang the last word of the Nestlé jingle, after the first two lines were sung by Nelson's human dummy Danny O'Day:

Danny: "N-E-S-T-L-E-S, Nestlé's makes the very best...
Farfel: Choc'-late

At the end, Farfel's mouth would close with a distinctive clap, uncharacteristic of proper ventriloquist's technique. The sound was the result of Nelson's nervousness at his audition for the Nestlé executives; his hands sweated, resulting in his finger slipping off of the mouth control. The executives liked the effect so much, they insisted that Nelson keep it in. The commercials ran for 10 years from 1955 to 1965.

Hollywood Squares - is an American game show in which two contestants compete in a game of tic-tac-toe to win cash and prizes. The show piloted on NBC in 1965 and the regular series debuted in 1966 on the same network. The board for the game is a 3 × 3 vertical stack of open-faced cubes, each occupied by a celebrity seated at a desk and facing the contestants. The stars are asked questions by the host and the contestants judge the truth of their answers to gain squares in the right pattern to win the game. Though Hollywood Squares was a legitimate game show, the game largely acted as the background for the show's comedy in the form of joke answers (commonly called "zingers" by the production staff), often given by the stars prior to their real answer. The show's writers usually supplied the jokes. In addition, the stars were given the questions' subjects and bluff (plausible, but incorrect) answers prior to the show. The show was scripted in this sense, but the gameplay was not. In any case, as original host Peter Marshall explained at the beginning of the Secret Square game, the celebrities were briefed prior to the show to help them with bluff answers, but they heard the actual questions for the first time as they were asked on air.
