Cowboys For Life Betty Boop Shirt! It’s always a memory flashback to my television past whenever I hear the voice of Claude Kirschner hyping my favorite commercials. Joining Claude Kirschner in this classic FIZZIES commercial is the legendary Mae Betty Boop Questel. FIZZIES were tablets that create a soft drink when added to water. Ruth Millard invented the idea for Emerson Drug Company, a manufacturer of Bromo-Seltzer, by adding a fruit flavor that children liked.
Once perfected, Emerson named the creation Fizzies. Cowboys For Life Betty Boop Shirt! The tablet was dropped into a glass of water, then fizzed and dissolved, creating a sweet, effervescent drink. Fizzies were first introduced by Emerson on a regional basis in July 1957. In 1962, the Emerson Drug Company was acquired by Warner-Lambert, which sold the product nationally that same year. In the 1950s and 1960s Fizzies came in seven flavors: grape, orange, cherry, lemon-lime, strawberry, root beer, and cola.
Fizzies’ sales grew both nationally and internationally until 1968, achieving more than double the sales volume of Kool-Aid. Cowboys For Life Betty Boop Shirt! Fizzies was also one of the sponsors for The Shari Lewis Show on NBC-TV in the early 1960s and pitched by Lewis herself. I know a lot of people were disappointed when I discontinued the home video collection of Classic TV Shows and Commercials on my website. But since my spine surgery, I haven’t been able to deal with it the right way. You’ll start seeing these DVDs being sold through.
