Hmmmm so they made a cereal that was EXACTLY like their other cereal Kix? Who was the marketing genius behind this Comment posted by owenrock on Thursday, September 10th 2009 at 6:22am.
It was sweeter than Kix and had a golden box for the maple flavor and this green one for the fruity Trix-tasting kind.
This was way before they came out with Honey Kix and Berry Berry Kix, so I guess they were experimenting with the marketing. Soon after this they realized that cereals marketed as healthy actually had to be healthy and not brown Trix in a box with kids exercising on it.

Can't beat the million-dollar sound of a jingle performed by the Ron Hicklin Singers. Even after 40 years, "At McDonaaaald's..." still sticks to the brain. It's been so long since a memorable uptempo jingle has been used in a national ad campaign, using one would stand out against all the maudlin and futuristic aural wallpaper used today.
If I'm not mistaken, that's a billboard for Ronrico rum visible through the window at 0:35. Even though no one at home was going to be putting this spot on "pause" in 1975, it surprises me they let that slip into something so tightly produced.
T.K. - You're correct - I hadn't noticed that, but this is the last regular appearance of Frazier Thomas on Family Classics that has yet been found. I don't have the opening for "The Black Swan" but I do have the last half hour or so including the complete ending, some of which you see here. I'll have to give this a proper posting at a later time.
Less than two months before the death of Frazier Thomas... am I right in that this is the latest of his regular appearances to have surfaced so far? (I'm not counting the clips used in the retrospective stories in April.)
The intro music to the car show sounds like it came from this catchy number used on the CHEK-TV Friday Night Movie in 1981. WGN's recording sounds like it came from someone holding a mic up to a record player in their basement, however. I'd love to hear it in full.
