Vincent Price for Monster Vitamins

I recall asking to get Monster vitamins as wee lad (along with Flintstones’ vitamins), but my Mother was convinced that vitamins that looked like candy were unnecessary and as I have stated before, would probably led me to OD on vitamins. Now I am thinking, maybe she also saw this creepy Vincent Price ad. What is he doing?? What mother would give their kids vitamins sold my a guy striking this particular pose?

  1. “What mother would give their kids vitamins sold my a guy striking this particular pose?” Apparently the answer is ‘my Mom’ because I remember getting those!

    The tag line for the TV ad this photo came from was, “OUR little monsters for YOUR little monsters!” Vincent kept opening a trap door in the floor and dropping vitamin pills to unseen creatures who then made yummy sounds. I loved Vincent and I loved this ad.
