Toonformercial: Remember Windal the Dental Wizard? (1979)

Here's one that I have no memory of ever seeing until today.

The American Dental Association commissioned independent producer Rick Reinert, the man behind the animated intros for ABC's Weekend Special & Afterschool Special, to produce a series of short PSA's to air on television.

This spot, from 1979, features Windal the Dental Wizard, voiced by----who else?----Paul Frees.

I remember these. I would sometimes see them on local stations during their non-network hours (i.e. syndicated kids' shows and blocks and the odd game show). I never realized that was Paul Frees voicing the Dental Wizard, though.

That puts you one up on me in having seen it.
