Adverts C

Cadbury's Caramel - 1991

The famous animated Cadbury's Caramel bunny with her dreamy voice provided by Miriam Margolyes appears here in a well remembered advert alongside a beaver. Write your own jokes! This particular advert had been in use since the 80s, but had been updated here to include the newer corner Cadbury logo that had been added to all their ads from the 90s.

Cadbury's Chocolate - 1990

A general advert for Cadbury's chocolate from 1990. Like a lot of adverts around that time, Cadbury's chose to evoke imagery of America. An odd choice for a country who's chocolate has been known to split opinion.

Cadbury's Chocolate Milk - 1989

A jolly little number to advertise Cadbury's Chocolate Milk in the late 80s. One of the products from the Cadbury stable which ultimately didn't last in the market.

Camelot Theme Park - 1990

A short advert for the Lancashire park, mainly notable as being owned by Granada at this time, hence the mentions of it at several points. This was during the phase of the 80s and 90s where Granada still kept a large amount of outside-of-television interests. The Camelot Theme Park was sold off in the late 90s, and eventually closed its doors completely in 2012.

Carling Black Label (Funfair) - 1987

In another ad from the long running 'I'll bet he drinks' Carling Black Label stable, a man isn't going to let having his leg in a cast prevent him going on the rollercoaster!

Carling Black Label - 1990

One of the most famous of all the 'I'll bet he drinks' adverts for Carling Black Label aired in 1990. Evoking the 1955 The Dam Busters film, a German sentry is responsible for blocking all the bouncing bombs being sent in his direction.

Carling Black Label - 1991

King Arthur returns Excalibur... with a twist, in this 1991 advert for Carling Black Label. One of many from across the years where the 'I'll bet he/she/they drinks Carling Black Label' catchphrase was used, which would always follow something unexpected happening onscreen. The slogan was eventually dropped in the 90s as the drink was also rebranded to just 'Carling'.

Carling Black Label - 1991

A squirrel runs an obstacle course to the Mission Impossible theme to reach some nuts, in another memorable advert for Carling Black Label from 1991. The advert is also marked for posterity by playing on background televisions in the series 3 episode of One Foot In The Grave 'Monday Morning Will Be Fine', alongside the David Dundas ITV theme of the time.

Carling Black Label (Beadle) - 1991

Another Carling Black Label advert, and this time round it's a spoof Beadles About-style show. Except things are turned on their heads somewhat.

Carling Black Label (Australia) - 1993

At first glance it looks like the lager advert is destined to be another one for Castlemaine. But very soon, Carling Black Label reminds us of how they like to do things, with a visitor from England dealing with a spider in the toilet.

Carling - 2001

An advert for Carling, where a bloke just walks home through a pretty normal world, with naked receptionists, talking dogs, and people herding animals on stairs. The tagline for this advert, one of several different words in use during the campaign, is 'Amazing'.

Carling (Frustrating) - 2002

Another advert for the rebranded 'Carling', from a time when degrading a particular gender was still just about deemed okay. A woman decides she wants her house cleaning. Thankfully she has her hapless partner and an unusually long lasting can of Carling.

Carlsberg - 1990

An exciting courtroom location makes up the setting for this Carlsberg advert, one of many playing on the famous "Probably The Best Lager In The World" slogan.... albeit very loosely.

Carlsberg Export - 2004

The Danes are making good use of stuffed toys to ensure Carlsberg Export doesn't leave the country in 2004.

Cesar - 1990

Show your special little dog just how much you care by running with them through some incredibly fake rain.

Cesar - 1993

One of the many dogfoods to come out of the Masterfoods department of Mars, Cesar has always been positioned as their more 'upmarket food for smaller dogs' range. And this advert from 1993 is no exception.

Cheetos - 1990

Cheetos have proven a very successful brand in the US for many years, complete with their mascot and his famous catchphrase 'It Aint Easy Being Cheesy', however it has been a much more limited success story over here. Owners PepsiCo initially tried to launch the brand in the UK in 1990, bringing both the character and catchphrase over with him, although it was shortlived. After another aborted try in the early 2000s, the brand was finally brought back to the UK in 2015, although without the famous mascot from America.

Churchill Insurance - 1996

The original and well known nodding dog advert for Churchill, voiced by Reeves and Mortimer.

Churchill Insurance - 2002

Are you eating a sweet? Yep, Still with the same voices, a 2002 Churchill ad now.

Churchill Insurance - 2004

A later ad for Churchill, appearing in 2004, whereby we find out Churchill is no good at saving the Earth from an alien invasion... but is quite good at saving money on car insurance. How exactly we could still use our cars if the human race had been overthrown by aliens is another story!

Citroën AX - 1993

Cupid is really struggling to bring about some love, but don't worry they have a Citrëon AX to help!

Classic Cigars - 1989

Classic Cigars - 1990

In a follow on advert from late 1990 aired quite close to the eventual banning, Russ Abbot features again, this time clay pigeon shooting. However Des O'Connor is getting his own back for his records being abused in their earlier ad...

Classic Cigars (Gardening) - 1990

Russ Abbot in another Classic Cigars advert. And this time he's tasked with mowing the lawn, but without making too much effort.

Classic Cigars (Golf) - 1990

Another of the long running Russ Abbot Classic Cigars advert features him playing golf. With a little help from an open-topped bus and an InterCity train,

Club - 1984

Advertising Jacob's Club in 1984. Starting by showing things going wrong for various groups of people, the song then invites everyone to 'come and be a member of the Club fanclub' instead.

Club - 1987

A classic club ad from 1987, featuring a remarkable recreation of the famous Wizard of Oz, only this time singing and dancing about Club. Watch out for an early appearance of the well known 'if you like a lotta chocolate' slogan too.

Club - 1994

A later, and much more well known advert for Club. Most people can probably remember this one!! (Hint: "If you like alot of chocolate on your biscuit, join our...")

Coco Pops (World Cup) - 1995

A Des Lynam (or Lion) cameo in this Coco Pops advert from 1995. The Coco United team are losing badly in the Jungle World Cup, until hero Coco inspires them by showing them all the milk turning chocolatey.

Coco Pops (Loch Ness) - 1995

In another outing for Coco and the gang, this time they're out to reveal the Loch Ness monster, with the aid of a giant bowl of Kelloggs Coco Pops.

Colgate - 1994

Tom and Jerry feature in this Colgate Toothpaste advert from 1994.

Colman's Wine - 1983

Colman's of Norwich reminding us of how famous they were for producing... Wine!

Comet - 1990

When defunct companies collide! Electronics chain Comet promote free installation of BSB in 1990.

Comet - 1991

An advert for electronics and white goods chain chain Comet from 1991, with the logo 'clicking' into place. Comet fell into administration in late 2012, with all the stores closed not long afterwards.

Common Sense - 1991

Kellogg's promote one of their most exciting cereals ever, enticingly named 'Common Sense'. Not a brand that lasted for a particularly long time relative to many of their more famous ones, perhaps not unsurprisingly.

Copperhead Cider - 1986

A warped advert from 1986 for Copperhead Cider. Featuring the slogan 'knock it on the head', it has one of those songs you'll either love or hate!

Cornetto - 1992

A well loved and well remembered advert from Walls for Cornetto. This particular broadcast was shown on TV in 1992, although the advert remained in frequent use in cinemas for several years afterwards!

Corn Flakes - 1987

A mix of live action and animation in this lively little number for Kellogg's Corn Flakes in 1987. Where we hear that after just one bowl of Corn Flakes, the whole world will be rockin' to that crunchy golden jive. Even mascot Cornelius is starting to think it's getting a little late for all this!

Corn Flakes - 1990

An American Diner features in this Kellogg's Corn Flakes ad from 1990, teaching us the valuable lesson that if ever you run out of Corn Flakes just offer someone a dessert instead.

Corn Flakes - 1991

Corn Flakes - 1997

'Oh what a beautiful mooooorrrrrnnnniing....' -as the Sunshine choir would say. This advert was adapted slightly for use on Channel 5, when it first launched, showing the Corn Flakes ads for when ITV and C4 launched, then this one!

Corn Flakes - 1999

Need to wake your kid in a hurry? Well as it's not an ad placing during the children's shows of the era, Kelloggs would like to pretend the answer isn't Frosties or Coco Pops but instead Corn Flakes!

Courts - 1997

Remembering the legendary Bruce Forsyth who could turn his hand to anything, here he appears dressed as a judge in 1997 to promote the Courts furniture store. Courts ultimately folded in the UK in 2004, although stores under the name continue to trade in some other countries.

Creme Egg - 1990

Stop motion animated characters depicting starsigns was the Cadburys approach for selling Creme Eggs for several years throughout the early 90s, with each of them talking about 'How They Do It'. Here in 1990 are Leo, Gemini, Sagittarius and Tauros.

Creme Egg - 1993

Another advert from the same starsign campaign for Cadbury's Creme Egg, this time aired in the 1993 season. The only notable difference is the addition of the purple 'Cadbury' logo in the corner, which had appeared on all adverts from later in 1990.

Creme Egg - 1997

Matt Lucas (aka George Dawes) stars in this ad, asking people 'How will you eat yours?'.

Crest - 1990

Launched in the US in the fifties, the Crest brand in the UK has largely been phased out in favour of 'Oral B' by owners Procter & Gamble. Prior to the purchase of Oral B in the late 2000s however, their toothpaste products were marketed heavily in the UK as Crest too. Just incase you have any doubt about whether to use their toothpaste too, here's a special Crest spokesman to convince you.

Crest - 1991

Here in a simple 1991 advert promoting how much Crest helps improve that nightmare visit to the dentist for children. The spokesman is nowhere to be seen now.

Crunchie - 1987

Do you get that Friday feeling every day? Or just have a very odd sense of dress? Either way you've probably been eating Cadbury Crunchies.

Crunchy Nut Cornflakes - 1986

What should you do if you get stuck in a lift with a food trolley? Steal all those Kelloggs Crunchy Nut Cornflakes of course.

Crunchy Nut Cornflakes - 1994

1994, and the police need to coax a fugitive out of the mountains. Lucky for them they always come with boxes of Crunchy Nut Cornflakes.

Crunchy Nut Cornflakes - 1995

A friendly lesson from 1995 from Kellogg's on just how hard you're making it for the removal men if you're obsessed with eating endless bowls of Crunchy Nut Cornflakes.

Crime (Together We'll Crack It) - 1991

An ad from 1990 encouraging people to secure their houses against criminals.
