This 1985 Saturday Morning ABC Commercial Break Collection Brings Back The Memories

There you were, sitting in front of the TV one Saturday morning with a giant bowl of Boo Berry cereal as you watched the adventures of Turbo Teen and it went to commercial break…it’s not like now where you just mute the ads…there were important things to see!

Slip’n Slide, Hamburgers for Ronald, Sunkist Fruit Rolls, the introduction of Buzz-Off and Whiplash to the Masters of the Universe toy line, and Kellog’s OJ’s cereal are just a few of the wonderful commercials in this nearly twelve minute collection of 1985 TV ads uploaded by Darian Sewell!

Seriously. How awesome was the OJ’s mascot?
