Toonfomercial: Remember Yabba Dabba Dew? (1974)

Arthur Treacher's Fish & Chips restaurants, which made a comeback not too long ago, were fairly big in the 70's. The chain, named for the British announcer of The Merv Griffin Show, had their fair share of promotions, including a series of Flintstones cups, promoting a short-lived drink, Yabba Dabba Dew, which was meant to rival Hi-C, which was put out by Coca-Cola, and Kool-Aid.

Hanna-Barbera, of course, produced an ad to promote the product. Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm are presented as their Cave Kids selves, even though the product came out after their teenage adventures had come to an end for the first time.
