Throwback Thursday: The 1976 Toys 'R' Us ad
Merry Christmas from Urbanite and amNewYork. In the spirit of the day, we present a classic animated ad for Toy 'R' Us, which features Geoffrey and his family busily shopping during "The Toys 'R' Us Time of Year," as the jingle goes. This ad ran from 1976 to 1985.And this morning, PIX 11 trotted out the Yule Log followed by "The March of the Wooden Soldiers" starring Laurel and Hardy. That just about makes a perfect Christmas morning. Check out this video tribute to old-school holiday TV on Channel 11, and our recent post on the Yule Log, with a slideshow history of the log.
