Toonfomercial: Does a dog really like breakfast cereal? (1969)

As long as we're dealing with Dastardly & Muttley in Their Flying Machines, the appropriately named Muttley16 offers up this gem of a commercial, one of the last of its kind. Hanna-Barbera had a licensing deal with Kellogg's during the studio's early years, and one of the last ads the company produced features the Vulture Squadron shilling for Frosted Flakes, with the help of some additional birds, after Muttley is unable to nab Yankee Doodle Pigeon.

It's also rare in that Klunk speaks a full sentence without using sound effects. I dare Boomerang to play this ad!
