Recalling Underoos Commercials

One of the oddities of the 1970s and 1980s Saturday mornings on NBC were commercials for Underoos. Underoos were underwear designed to look like a comic book or cartoon character (either it would show a full image of the character or be made to look like an underwear version of the character’s costume).  The commercials even back then seemed a bit odd, with kids dancing in their underwear, singing about how great the product was. Nowadays, of course, the commercials seem even more bizarre, a pedophile’s dream. But back then, while the commercials seemed rather strange, there was still an innocence to them that unfortunately clash with more modern sensibilities.  As it is, I don’t feel right about posting links to any of videos, but there are plenty of them on YouTube.
