You can sit around the house and watch Leave it to Beaver...

Strangely, I first remember seeing him on milk cartons at school; I think it was some sort of series on authors' advice about how best to enjoy reading.

Well, I now fainlly understand that reference from "Dare To Be Stupid."

Who's that she-devil purring about coffee in the voice-over, Eartha Kitt?

Ditto. I learn something from Spatch every day, it seems.

Judging from the ad, I'm pretty sure that voiceover is Cicely Tyson's. And just look what coffee does for her -- it helped her win an award for her powerful performance in the play "Man Gets Slapped!"

That was a great play. Movie sucked, though.

These ads probably had an embarrassingly strong influence on my current love of coffee.

There's one I remember where the voiceover said something like "coffee calms you down while....(blah blah blah)" and I think they got in trouble for it.

I might be making this up.

I remember that tagline, too. One of the ads definitely mentioned coffee's amazing ability to "calm you down" while "picking you up" or somesuch. I remember my parents laughing like loons when they saw that one.

1984, it should be noted, is the year in which Mr Vonnegut failed his attempt at suicide.

"I'm a coffee achiever, Sam!" finally makes sense.

Thanks, Spatch.
