An hour's worth of commercials dealing with all aspects of a kid's life circa 1950-67. Older baby-boomers may remember Space Patrol's Space Binoculars (they make you look "like a man from Mars," Howdy Doody hawking Tootsie Rolls, and the Lone Ranger pushing Cheerios and the Lone Ranger Rapid-fire Revolver.
