This famous hotel has undergone some big real estate plays recently, and every time I read its name, the jingle starts playing in my head.

Sing it with me, '80s WPIX 11 watchers:


1980 commercial - Milford Plaza - YouTube

Bonus commercial:


Mount Airy Lodge ad, 1989 - YouTube

Today's TV PIX pal is "Murray The Cop"!

That Milford Plaza ad ran for many years.....not as long as the TCI "How did I get this great career?" ad though. I think that one spanned 3 decades. Astonished I can't find it on youtube.

Who remembers "Puppy City"?

OMG, now I have a huge craving for Sealtest Ice Cream.

The three commercials I remember seeing , at least every half hour , on WPIX:

1 ) The Native-American crying about all the litter.

2 ) The Haemophilliac.

and who can forget ...

3 ) " I'm sure you recognize this familiar melody as Polvetzian Dance # 2 by Borodin...."
