Someone posted an old commercial for the Mickey Mouse Talking Phone on the vintage_ads community the other day. I totally had that phone. The buttons were kind of hard to press and I remember chewing on the phone cord because it had a satisfying, rubbery taste. I realize now that this is kind of strange. Hey, at least I didn’t choke myself with it, which is what kids would do with it now. Anyway, two really great things about this commercial: the blue shag carpeting of ridiculous height, and the announcer’s cheery voice when he says, “With the Mickey Mouse Talking phone, the batteries are not included!” Like this is a marketable feature.
