Sweet Pickles - "Circle The Bus" (Commercial, 1983)

Here's another commercial for the Sweet Pickles books for kids. This one does feature a bus, but it's not a real bus - just cardboard. Also, it doesn't have the Sweet Pickles jingle - that must have come later.

This aired on local Chicago TV on Friday, January 7th 1983.

I had several Sweet Pickles books as a kid back in the 1970s and I really liked them. My favorite was called "Moody Moose Buttons" about a manic-depressive moose. I also had one about a crabby alligator janitor, another about a quail, and one about a lion. I think I also had the books with the camel and zebra.

I also remember the imfamous bus from the 1980s that would pull up to the house and costumed characters waved from inside. I remember my mom telling my younger sister "they don't really do that if you order it!" The jingle was "Smart Moms know how kids' minds grow".

Strange - do you get any sort of error message? This clip *is* in a different file format - as opposed to our old .FLV (Flash Video) files, this one is in .MP4 format. However, it plays as normal through the site for me - anyone else having problems?

I'm not able to play this using either IE or Firefox.

I am sure that "Come Back here" is out there somewhere!

The movie Bob Carrington was referring to was the 1968 movie "Villa Rides" starring Yul Brynner, Robert Mitchum, Maria Grazia Buccella & Herbert Lom.

Twilight Time has released it on Blu-ray. I will order my copy before it becomes out-of-print.

Did anyone notice the Monday Night Football theme heard at the start and end of this promo?

Wonder why this thing isn't around anymore? "Let me see what happens if I stand on it?." Merry Christmas!

Cool find but we all know which one we're waiting for...

I found this on YouTube as a Sesame Street clip. Check out the comments though because someone named Paul Kyriazi claims to have directed it for Sesame Street and said that Mark Krigbaum produced and edited it and Roy Cox photographed it on 16mm film. The link is:
