11:57 pm - this is all I got, folks...
This commerical, which usually aired during Wonderama!, was one of the highlights of my childhood weekends, beyond singing in folk Mass. How much do I dig the shameless E.T. bandwagoneering [note the wily substitution of "celestial person" for "extra-terrestrial"], the cruddy special effects, and the tinny, neo-futuristic brogue of seasonal delicacy Cookie O' Puss? Fudgie the Whale can spout off all he wants (yuk yuk) but HE never inspired the Beastie Boys to sing his praises while sampling their own prank calls to Carvel:

I remember that episode...it was a good one.

And yes, our mermaid costumes bring me great pride. I have to say they were pretty fabulous, and the photos don't do them justice. Not too shabby considering I made my Cyclone headdress out of a spray-painted wastebasket! And we were in great company--2nd place for Best Sea Creature behind the amazing fantabulous brilliant brooklyngirl!!!
