Do You Remember ABC’s Peter Rabbit Ears? (1957)

  • PLEASE FOLLOW THE RETROIST

I was looking up some information about a Drive-In theater being torn down on YouTube today when I stumbled across this little gem. A 1957 promo animation for the ABC network with a host named Peter Rabbit Ears, who kindly takes you through an animated journey of the types of programming you would be seeing on ABC television…without actually naming any ABC programs.

I really love the way he says, “Draaaama”.

    I used to love this commercial; loved the way Peter Rabbit Ears said Draaama, and the way he’d turn himself into a TV antenna, pop up, wink his eye, turn back into an antenna, and then the network would come on.
