Classic Toronto TV Commercials

Last December, in what can only be described as a serious fit of nostalgia, I compiled a compendium of classic Canadian TV clips from YouTube (over 40 TV show throwbacks from the 70's, 80's, and 90's).

Today I stumbled upon a YouTube user named WNED17, who has posted a series of clips from the 80's and 90's (mostly commercials and station-related programming snippets from WNED via Scarborough's Trillium Cable). There are some gems in the collections, for sure!

Here are a few that took me back (Honest Eds, African Lion Safari, Bowlerama, Hostess Potato Chips, and a Lotto 6/49 draw after the jump!)...

1) Toronto TTC Commercial (1984)

2) Honest Eds Commercial (1988)

3) African Lion Safari (1986)

4) Toronto Bowlerama Commercial (early 80's)

5) Hostess Potato Chips Commercial (1987)

6) Lotto 6/49 Draw on CFTO (1989)
