Check Out This 1965 Cheerios Commercial Featuring The Munsters!

What better way to start the month long celebration of October here on the Retroist than with this 1965 TV ad for Cheerios featuring the Munsters?

In the commercial Eddie (Butch Patrick) is extolling the virtues of making Cheerios a part of your breakfast, pointing out that is the reason that Herman (Fred Gwynne) has such strength and energy to help around the house. Using clips from the 1964 series Grandpa (Al Lewis) and Lily (Yvonne De Carlo) are seen in the commercial as well!
