Vintage Toy Ads > Knight Rider KITT & Care Bear Cousins

One of the niftiest things about Kenner’s KITT toy from the early ’80s was that there was a small dial underneath the car that allowed you change the speed of the voice; this was intended to counteract the tendency of the voice to go too fast when the batteries were new, and slow down when the batteries were dying. A nifty feature–which apparently everyone forgot about during the making of this ad. Those are clearly new batteries in KITT–it sounds like Mr. Feeny doing an Alvin & the Chipmunks impression.

The girl on the bottom right at the end of the Care Bear Cousins ad just doesn’t seem that into it.

    If you look closely all the kids in the carebears commercial are just phoning in on the job,girl on the lower right got stuck with the "Fat" one so I guess she is extra unexcited with the job.
