Toonfomercial: How would an ant and a grasshopper save money? (1977)

You don't hear much about savings bonds anymore, but it was still something to consider in the 70's.

This 1977 cartoon ad takes the tale of the grasshopper and the ant, and tweaks it to serve as a cautionary tale about the Payroll Savings Plan. Paul Frees (who else?) narrates.

I did an obit on Yvonne Craig over at my other blog, The Land of Whatever, a week ago. I'll have to look up this 1972 spot you speak of.

That's not one for war bonds. That's the equal pay for women one that I already have, with Dick Gautier as Batman.

No, it isn't. Completely different subject matter.

No, it is not. You need to do some further research, Austin.
