Toonfomercial: Alvin & the Chipmunks sing for Jell-O (1961)

The in-show commercials were gradually fading away in the 60's. One of the last bastions were animated shows such as The Alvin Show, which was sponsored by General Foods, long since absorbed by Kraft.

Here, the boys sing the Jell-O jingle, and all while Alvin is trying to mooch some of the product for himself.

These spots, of course, were edited off when the series shifted to Saturday morning reruns, first on CBS, then NBC, and later, a cable run on Nickelodeon.
