The Halloween Season is full on now! This week, our normal spotlight on toy commercials found on YouTube takes a slight detour as we focus on Halloween theme commercials and TV spots. There are some that have toys, but anything and everything is fair game, Junkies. We have Vincent Price, Elvira, vitamins, and more all contained below!
Halloween III Silver Shamrock Commercial
You really need to watch Halloween III: Season of the Witch again. It is crazy fun and so much better than the current Halloween film out in theaters.
McNuggets Halloween commercial + Happy Meal Pales
So wait, Ronald McDonald is literally talking to the food he is about to eat and it answers back? Now that's scary. Oh, and why doesn't McDonald's bring back the pales every year?
It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown 1966 TV Promo
I found this vintage promo for It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. It really does reveal what the restoration has done for the cartoon. Plus there are one or two scenes not featured in the cartoon here.
Mug Root Beer Halloween with Elvira Commercial
If you need more Elvira (and who doesn't), she has done a lot of commercials for Halloween products, easily found on YouTube. We went with this kid-friendly Mug Root Beer spot.
Vincent Price Halloween Tilex Commercial
Yes, the Master of Macabre even sold bathroom tile cleaner. I like to think he went on a pretty nice vacation with the residuals he got for this one.
Freddy Kruger 900 Number Hotline
Is that even Robert Englund? Thankfully, I never called to find out or ask.
1980 Toys R Us Halloween Commercial
Yoda and Bird Bird are what they went with? Essentially two Muppets?!
Monster Vitamins Commercial starring Vincent Price
The button for this one at the end is pretty sweet!
Verizon Star Wars Halloween Commercial
Probably my favorite modern commercial in the last ten years.
KISS on The Paul Lynde Halloween Special (1976)
We featured only KISS' performance here from Paul Lynde Halloween Special. Trust me, if you can sit through corny jokes, it is worth it just to see Margaret Hamilton play the Wicked Witch of the West again. Not to mention that you will see Betty White, Florence Henderson, The Osmonds, and Tim Conway appear as well!
