80's Corner


Anybody remember the California Raisins? This was a huge ad campaign featuring "clay-mated" raisins that would strut around and sing like some sort of 1960's R&B group. It all started innocently enough as a few commercials, but for some reason, people became fascinated by these four shriveled-up super-stars (and now, I'm not talking about the Stones!).

From the commercials came a couple of albums, and even a cartoon. They went so far as to include a Michael Jackson California Raisin in a commercial ... I kid you not! They even did a Christmas special ... but I have no memory of what it was all about.

Heck, I remember sporting a California Raisins t-shirt at one time ... not sure if this was cool or not.

Dude... I think you have begun to repeat yourself. I remember you talking about the raisins before.

This can't be allowed to continue. New and original content only...
