The Monkees for Kool-Aid

Loading the player…

Here’s a commercial for Kool-Aid, featuring the cast of The Monkees. The series was not sponsored by Kool-Aid during its original run on NBC from 1966 to 1968. This particular spot is from the very late 1960s or the early 1970s. The copyright date appears to say 1970.


  • Actually, Kool-Aid did sponsor The Monkees during its Saturday Afternoon run of repeats on CBS (September 13, 1969-September 2, 1972).

  • Jon says:

    That does appear to be a 1970 copyright at the end, and the absence of Peter Tork, who left the group after the April 1969 Monkees tv special, would help put this in the 70s as well.
