O.K. Here's the story on Alan Alda and Atari. According to the Indianapolis Star, Alan Alda got millions of dollars for his Atari tv commercials. At the same time, they were laying off 2,000 employees. So much for his being a liberal advocate for people who live in what Hollywood calls "Flyover Country"!!

the last one was a slam dunk... "It takes four bowls of grape-nuts (the most popular "health" cereal at the time, ) four bowls to equal the nutrition of one bowl of Total"

Was thinking back to the commercial. I almost guessed "both" then I remembered the point of both cereals being in it in the first place so I guessed it right:).

#4 and #10 were hard.
#4 -I was pretty sure Apple didn't make hardware in black. But I'm not swearing to that. I do know Atari was a VERY popular product. And a a Touch Pad seemed perfect for Gamers! But I never knew one existed so long ago.
#10 - I remember Sugarfoot but never heard of Stagecoach West. And our family watched every Western produced. (But obviously not. What a surprise!).

You had to live through the times really, to know the spokespeople and the products. I remember Harry Morgan pitching Gaines Burgers (because it was kind of a novel product).

Wow. Loretta Swit was certainly shopped around. Stellar Agent!
