And Now For Something A Little Different...

On: Sunday, May 1, 2011

My dad watched baseball, football and golf when I was growing up, and somewhere in that mix of sports Bert and Harry (Bob and Ray) were selling Piel's beer. I can't explain why the pair appealed to me, but the memory their commercials and banter is pretty fresh in my mind. The coasters below are from the mid-fifties and available online from eBay sellers.

Some of the most influential and popular TV commercials of the 1950s were the Bert and Harry Piels Beer spots created by UPA (and later on animated by Terrytoons). Much of their popularity was due to the great dialogue tracks provided by Bob Elliot and Ray Goulding (aka Bob and Ray) and the appealing animation directed by Gene Deitch. If you’ve been wondering where you could see these, Asifa-Hollywood has just posted a whole slew of the early ones on their Animation Archive blog. Go there now!
