New Exhibit: Vintage Sponsor Spots

I’ve pulled together sixteen sponsor spots (also called billboards) from shows like Route 66, The Patty Duke Show, Where the Action Is and The Twilight Zone. These aren’t commercials per se but announcements listing a show’s participating sponsors. Think of them as advertisements for advertisers. They were generously provided by Maureen, who has donated quite a bit of other footage over the years, and I think they’re quite interesting.

So if you have a few minutes, take a look at Vintage Sponsor Spots and hear mention of brands and products like Drano, Stri-Dex, 5th Avenue Candy Bars, Pillsbury and Bravo Floor Wax. If you have any comments, please make them on the exhibit page itself. Enjoy!
