8,  He's got over 250 credits...most for tv, and about half of them for his voice (he became the voice of a famous animated character)

10.  She was first cast in small roles in some big films, and later got top billing in low budget B's...Even though she never had a regular role on  television (she was set to co-star in a series with a well known comedic actor in the early 60's, but the pilot went nowhere) she has a star for TV on the Hollywood walk of fame.

4 and 8 are correct, no to 12. I have a feeling you may be too young to know products like Brylcream and this product, they are not women's shampoos or women's hair conditioners. this was a men's product like Brylcream.

5,7,11,12,13,14 still open

7  was already answered but I remembered Chevrolet

Per Google, No more greasy kid stuff is Vitalis

5. is Maxwell House (took a guess but verified with Google) - I worked for the ad agency that handled Folgers (left circa 1985 and they still use the basics of the commercial that replaced Mrs. Olsen (aka Virginia Christine)

13 is Lustre-Creme Shampoo (which, apparently, Liz Taylor did a commercial for)

14. Arpege (I remember the Lanvin Perfume)

11. is Quaker Oats (I think there used to be a factory around where I live)

 

Thank you Lavender for bringing back to when commercials were sometimes more interesting that the shows I watched with my parents.  Many of today's ads are cruel and show the shortcomings of technology/parenting/etc.  Like that lady on the Buick Commercial who gets salmon filets for dinner without realizing that the kids are almost literally being dropped off for this woman and her husband to babysit.  The younger girl asks, upon entering, where is the pizza.  Rice-a-Roni brought back memories of the ads for Shake and Bake (as well as some of the cigarette ads).

Excellent Chaya, Peebs and Princess. It's a tie. You all answered 5 each.Yes, 12 is Vitalis. Not just Elizabeth for Lustre Cream Shampoo, countless other actresses too. If you're at a certain age, you'll remember these commercials and products. I had a bottle of Arpege. It's funny because with all the shampoos on the market, there has been a demand for Lustre Cream Shampoo these last few years. At any rate, thanks for playing . It's your turn to post one Chaya or Princess or Peebs, you can decide who gets to post the next one.,

Identify the classic tv shows by the title of their final episode. 

(All the shows started before 1980 although a couple finales are in the early 1980's.  I'm hoping that technicality works for the rules of Retro Trivia. )

1.  The Case of the Final Fade-Out

2.  Up & Down the Dial

3.  Betty's Graduation

4.  Simka's Monthlies

5.  My Master, the Chili King

6. Don't Forget the Alligator 

7. The Truth, Nothing but the Truth, So Help Me, Sam

8.  The Bewitching Hour

9. Brenda Runs Away

10.  Whatever Happened to Ernie 

11.  Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen

12.  Mayberry, R.F.D.
