Does it make sense to jump out of a warm bed into a cold cereal?

Is life getting you down? Is today turning out to be a complete washout? Don't be grim... try reading Scarlet Blue's blogspot - It's so big, you've gotta grin to get it in. Scarlet can deliver powerful relief in just two minutes and we all like a little hanky panky now and again, don't we?
Scarlet Blue's Blogspot - because life's complicated enough.
You know it makes sense.



Pity about Woolworths though...

Scarlet Blue's Blogspot...

It's a right good nibble.

The Unbearable Banishment said...

And to think you don't ask to be compensated. How can humanity ever properly repay you?

Scarlet Blue said...

MJ: The Infomaniac Blogspot...
It's what your right arm's for.

Mr Banishment: It's a good job that I'm only here for the beer.

Chairman Bill said...

You're contravening the regullations by automatically transmitting the advert break louder.

Chairman Bill said...

Bugger - a typo. Don't know what's happening to me today - can't type.

xl said...

I would like to sign up for some of the hanky panky please.

savannah said...

i'd buy that for a dollar, sugar! :~D xoxoxox

(well done!)

Dave said...

I do think following the Hanky Panky with a young lady in her undergarments was a bit saucy.

So unlike life in Dave Towers.

Pat said...

That's what's wrong with me - cold cereal. I'm going back to porridge.
Great to see old Manwaring.

Sarah said...

Funny Dave, I was just going to say this set of ads could have been made solely for you....

Great tits.

Ponita in Real Life said...

Geez, I thought that woman was feeding her boy wine first thing in the morning!

The least she could do is wait until he's had something to eat...

mago said...

And did Gypsy deliver all the uplift you need?

Happy Frog and I said...

Oh my goodness, I had completely forgotten that I had a Merlin game before I saw this. Fantastic!

BEAST said...

Scarlet Blue Blogspot. I imagine a tena lady stylee advert with Miss MJ laughing as she rides a bike , laughing as she rides a horse...laughing as she whips a houseboy.
If your mising Woollies you can always visit Wellies in Dorchester

TechnoBabe said...

Great seeing some of the old commercials. Did that stuff really get us to buy the product? What were we thinking??

Kevin Musgrove said...

I miss proper Lucozade in the bottle with the golden cellophane on it.

I'll have to get some suggestive digestive biscuits.

Rog said...

Now we've only got the bloody Meerkat and the Go Compare Tenor.

I'm getting all nostalgic now!

nick said...

The Gypsy was never as well-known as the Cross-Your-Heart. Not that I was particularly bothered when I was feverishly unfastening whichever make it was.

Lulu LaBonne said...

Are you trying to remind us of our age darling? - How kind!

tattytiara said...

I'm sold! I'll take twelve!

mapstew said...

I'm back in The Carlton waiting for the main fillum! :¬)

Jimmy Bastard said...

New improved Scarlet-Blue... for that just scrubbed freshness feel in your toilet bowl.

Now with handy germ-free cage.

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr Chairman: x2...Calm down, Mr Chairman, this is an advertisement. At Scarlet Blue we won't make a drama out of a crisis.

Mr XL: I can put a tiger in your tank.

Savvy: Georgia on my mind!

Dave: Some would say it's the best a man can get...

Pat: Porridge will see you right for the day and milk's gotta lotta bottle.

Sarah: Actually you're right!
I was going to sloganise all my replies. But I'm stuck on Dave.

eroswings said...

That hanky panky commercial looks an awful like a dominatrix fantasy to me!

It makes sense to jump out of a warm bed for cold cereal when you're hungry.

KAZ said...

That was Leonard Swindley - Emily should have played the woman.
Sorry - before your time. But so much better that Gail.

Scarlet Blue said...

Ponita: Have you never had Lucozade? It was worth being ill for. Amazing what kids will do for a fizzy drink.

Mr Mags: I have difficulty seeing over the mountains.

Happy Froggy: I'd forgotten that Woolworths used to sell dodgy - and pricey - furniture.

Mr Beastie: Duck, Mr Beastie. A flamming uterus is heading in your direction.

Technobabe: I once bought a product because of a cuddly alien type creature... I think it was Activia... but that doesn't sound right...?

Kev: So do I! I liked the squeaky cellophane.

Rog: I have noticed that the glowing Ready Break children are back. Back to beat up the Co-co pop kids who are tripping out on chocolate milk.

Nick: So how many bras have you got?

Lulu: Sorry. Don't you think though, that the Woolworths furniture was overpriced. Nobody has mentioned this.
Woolworths - the Ikea of its time.

Tatty: Would that be twelve quality posts of insightful and mindbending writing?
Delivery might be a little late... but then we are talking about the quality product...

Mr Maps: Have you switched off your mobile?

Mr Jimmy: I have a slogan ready for you!
Jimmy Bastard: Made in Scotland from girders.

Clyde said...

No, I've decided to stay in bed and wait for Scarlet to deliver some of that poerful relief---that should keep me going til lunch

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr Swings: How about jumping into a warm bath of porridge?

Kaz: Before my time but I know my Corrie history.
I couldn't bear to watch Corrie last night. I just want to slap Gail. She looks more and more like a constipated gerbil with every episode.

Madame DeFarge said...

Two minutes? Blimey, what a fast worker. Normally takes me a good ten minutes from a standing start.

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr Clyde:Lay back Mr Clyde and I will let my fingers do the walking.

Scarlet Blue said...

Madame D: I'm a very fast worker...
Instant... like this post!

nick said...

Ooh, that would be telling. Jenny might get jealous that I've got more than her. And much sexier ones. But aren't those underwires a curse?

Whirlochre said...

Interesting how they did away with the manproof lace on those Berlei bras.

MJ said...

*laughs at KAZ's "constipated gerbil" reference and flings flaming uterus at Beast*

One MUST be able to multi-task.

Heff said...

Your ancient commercials are better than ours.

wendy house said...

Ms S
I want to buy one (Scarlet Blue blogspot) and get one free in a (readers) digest form so that I can eat it with my "KP Discos" and dunk it in my bedtime horlicks

EmmaK said...

Scarlet-Blue

with all the uplift you need

have a saucy weekend

zIggI said...

I wondered where I'd seen him before! Leonard Swindley of course! Same shifty moustache.

moreidlethoughts said...

Well, Kaz beat me to the draw with the "Street" reference.
When the first pic loaded I thought it was going to be: "I'm a happy knocker-upper and I do my job with pride..." Dusty Springfield tune, I think.
(For the very young readers, it was advertising a loaf bread.)

Eryl Shields said...

I need a handy snack.

Gadjo Dilo said...

8 out of 10 cats prefer Scarlet Blue. (Ah, great to see Arthur Lowe in that advert - "Hanky Pankies", though? I can't remember them).

mago said...

There are really not many things in this world I hate, but cereal or Muesli in the morning is a goddamn crime that should be punished severely.

mutleythedog said...

I remember all those ads and the sweets. I was fifteen then and I especially remember the bra advert,,,

mago said...

"It ain't necessarily so ..."

Scarlet Blue Blogspot!

Kerrie said...

I am now depressed that I remember some of these yet happy that I never suffered for scuffed shoes as a child.
As for the bra "delicately lacy and daringly plundgey " Scarlet that was made for us.

Grump said...

Didn't we all love Mr Mannering in Dad's Army. The great british double entendre.
Woofx

Scarlet Blue said...

Nick: Trust me... underwires are a blessing... without them I would be doing keep 'em uppies with my knees.

Mr Whirly: I still catch men in my starched netting.

MJ: I have been suffering from the inflamed uterus; it has been interferring with my typing skills... I am a rubbish multi-tasker :o(

Heff: Our ancient commercials are better than our current programmes.
There's more drama in a bra advert than in a whole Monday evening schedule.

Wendy: Naturally, for you, the Scarletblue blogspot will come free in a dunkable format.

Emmak: I had a weekend of waxing, polishing and buffing.
Oh... and I cleaned the house this morning.

ZIggI: And Captain Manwarring!

Scarlet Blue said...

Dinah: Are we looking at the same clips? Or has my memory really gone to pieces... it has hasn't it?

Eryl: I need a snack so big that it takes two hands to hold it. I am greedy like that.

Gadj: I don't think Hankie Pankies took off. Unlike Sherbet Fountains, which are popular to this day.

Mr Mags: And what is your breakfast of choice?

Mr Mutts: I bet you were always hitting the paws button on your remote.

Mr Mags: Indeed!

Kerrie: It's true! Even if I am wearing my scruffiest jeans and my grubbiest T-shirt, my foundation garments are always splendid.

Grump: Indeed, Perry and Croft were responsible for an awful lot of sauce.

Mitzi said...

Bring back Lucozade cellophane wrap.

Is that Maria Charles in the Settlers ad? I remember her from Agony, and Victor/Victoria.

Scarlet Blue said...

Mitzi: I loved Agony! I thought I was the only person who remembered it! Bill Nighy was in the 2nd series and I thought he was gorgeous.

Mitzi said...

It was the theme tune I remember the most sung by the lovely Lynsey De Paul (I think). Do you remember it made a comeback as "Agony Again" in the 90s. I do like a mince down memory lane.

Scarlet Blue said...

Mitzi: I used to sing along to the theme tune!
Lyndsey also did the theme tune to No, Honestly... another good sing-a-long.
And I remember the 90's update of Agony - wasn't so good though.
