Boo… who?

For companies, Halloween is a good time to scare up some sales. Especially for those who sell sweets and treats. 

Below, we grabbed screen shots from vintage Halloween commercials of the 1970s, '80s and '90s.

13/14 some of these products were regional. There weren't any Burger Chefs or Mummy cereals in our area.

I actually missed two because both Dolly Madison and Hostess produced and sold Zingers.

It was one of the five monster cereals. The Big Three, which still appear each Halloween, are Count Chocula, Franken Berry, and Boo Berry. The other two were Fruit Brute and Yummy Mummy. Those two appear sporadically.

Sold from 1987-92. According to General Mills, Yummy Mummy is not one of the Monster Cereals.

13/14! missed the Zingers! A quick rundown of who's who: [1] Poppin' Fresh [4] Fred and Barney [5] Toucan Sam [8] Spuds McKenzie [9] Jeffery Giraffe [RIP]. Number 14 didn't really look like Lindsey Wagner, but since Jacklyn Smith and Lynda Carter are brunettes, I still got the answer!
Jacklyn Smith?!?! Jacklyn Smith did not play Sabrina Duncan, she played Kelly Garrett. Kate Jackson played Sabrina Duncan. So, you still got the answer right, by being wrong!
Your reply makes no sense at all. cperrynaples was just commenting on the masks, not who played what roles in what shows.
Apologies to all on that mistake! Yes, I did mix them up, but since Smith and Jackson are both brunettes, my answer is still partially VALID!
I love being right when i'm wrong.
