What products were these TV celebrities selling?

Columbo, Gilligan, Spock and Wonder Woman once pitched these brands.

If you're a big brand, how to sell your product is no big secret. Just get a famous face for your commercials. Of course, finding a beloved, trusted celebrity is the trick. 

That was not so tough back in the days of classic television. Beloved characters were everywhere, from ace detectives to lovable castaways. 

Below, you will see shots from vintage ads that once ran on television. See if you can match the TV star with the product. Some you might remember. Otherwise, look for clues. Good luck!
