14/15 The cereal ad got me (guessed 60s). There were some good clues, like fashion and cars.
Sugar Crisp was introduced in the '50's, but its famous mascot Sugar Bear was the '60's! Fun fact: He was featured in a Saturday morning cartoon where he sounded like Bing Crosby!
Yeah, I wasn't sure when he became the mascot. I remember Sugar Bear kept stealing from Granny Goodwitch, but she was never mad. "I can't get enough of that Sugar Crisp, Sugar Crisp, Sugar Crisp."

11/15. Hoped I'd do a bit better but the photos are pretty small on my phone. (I know....excuses, excuses.)
