courtship was had only one run here and the series was never repeated in New Zealand, but I never forgot it.

Didn't know special K ws so old.

They advertise it as brand new over here.

This is great. I also enjoy the theme song for this program.

What surprises me about this commercial is that Special K is being marketed as a cereal for both adults and children. I've always thought of it as for adults only. Most kids would find it bland, I suspect..

Question Lava. Is there an emulation factor that the manufacturers are counting on? Eddie is of the age (demographics) that he would still look to his parent(s) for validation. So if you can convince the parent (your adult factor) that they are positively influencing their offspring to adopt beneficial behaviours (healthy eating habits) does it not, in this case, serve to sell the adult first and to hope there is a secondary benefit? Namely, influencing the children of the next generation as to the possible medicinal effects of the food source. That would be called??? Advertising at its best.

What do you think?

I remember the movie 'the outsiders' when the were putting sugar on their cereal and the mother got upset, cause she put cereal with sugar added so they wouldn't put sugar on.

I saw that movie twenty years ago and
don't remember anything but that scene.


you could tell those boys were driving their mother over the brink, and it was truly a powerful scene.

Good bit of amateur psychology by Jed. Maybe he's got the concept pegged.
