Growing up, there are just some tunes that really stick to u! I mean, these tunes just represent your childhood! For example, who can forget the famous song associated with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle! These Turtles in a half shell bring back not just comic book memories, but they certainly make you think differently about turtle soup!
As some associations are “Evergreen”, I have been teaching some of these famous songs to the kids. Many of the establishments and businesses that these mascots represent, are still significant pillars for children of today!
One song that I have been teaching the kids, is the “Mouseketeers Song”. I used to watch the Mickey Mouse Club, every week when I was young and I loved it. U guys remember the Intro?
And of course, who can forget the ending! Mic…See you real soon! Key….Y..Because we love you…You can watch it, if you are not from my era…
Times have changed and today’s Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is very much different! However, I still think that Disney has not lost his “Magic Touch” as the song still speaks to the kids of today. Whenever we catch the introduction on the telly, the kids and I will still dance together to the song and laugh at ourselves. The Songs may be different, but Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is still in the “Cool” category for any kid!
Check out the Current Mickey Mouse Club House song here if you don’t have kids, and you are not sure what I am talking about
Another tune that really clung on to me revolves around a yellow Giraffe! Yes! how can you not like what the yellow Giraffe stands for!
He is the mascot of the Biggest Toy Store in town, and he represents toy! I definitely did not have the teach the kids to love Geoffrey, but they discovered this yellow animal by themselves, and they just got excited whenever they smell a shopping mall that has a Toys R Us nearby.
Unfortunately, “Toys R Us” does not buy “air time” for their advertisements in Singapore anymore, but when I was young, these advertisements really stuck with me as I watched them on my telly! My eyes just went Mega Big when I saw the toys on display! Check out the catchy theme song!
I showed the kids this advertisement! It seemed to hold their attention for a while, but they immediately took a liking for the current one.
I think it must be the modern Cartoon Characters that are in the current advertisement that really speak to them! Wonder if you guys share the same pleasant memories as me, when you watch these ads!
