Kids stealing vegetables. How the world has changed.  ??)
We used to swipe tomato's and throw them at the buses from the visiting teams as they were leaving town.

I remember everyone of these advertisements from comics when I was a kid. Funny to see what they actually were.

I remember all of those, too! Some I had forgotten but remembered when I skimmed the site. Thanks so much for sharing that, Moogmodule! I can't wait to go back and read it in more detail.

One thing I was always curious about was those "tabs" you put on the end of a lit cigarette that would (allegedly) generate a blizzard. I remember one line of the advertisement reading "watch everyone run for their sleds!" As a child that always fascinated me.  ;D

That sea monkey ad really was creepy! My daughter used to feed brine shrimp to her fish. They didn't have faces or wear crowns like that though.  ;)
