Alpha-getti, which looks a lot like Spaghetti-Os were never on my lunch table when I was a kid. They seem to be a treat for Canadians, where this commercial ran in the mid-eighties. That is a real shame because while the Spaghetti-Os commercial were pretty great, I LOVE this Alpha-getti Gobbler. I have watched this ad about a dozen times and I still am not sure what the gobbler is supposed to be? Maybe just a gobbler, like the Grimace is just a grimace (do they come from the same land?)
For a more retro treat, here is a commercial from the sixties for the Alpha-getti.
