Non-toy ad Tuesday: Mr Bellamy liquorice, Trebor chews, Green Cross Man and Iris tennis shoes

Today’s non-toy ad Tuesday attempts to delight you with some late 70s UK confectionery (Mr Bellamy, Trebor), a cautionery tale about crossing the road (Green Cross Man), and the perfect trainers to wear when about to play tennis in Brazil in the 1980s (Iris). Enjoy.

Always use the Green Cross Code!

The advert below features late 70s / early 80s UK road-crossing superhero Green Cross Man. UK television viewers from this time period will recall that the actor who played Green Cross Man was none other than Dave Prowse – famous for his role as everyone’s fave Timelord, Doctor Who!! Only joking, of course he played Darth Vader, really 🙂

I will quote one of the panels below: “You fool, It’s gone over the road.”
