If you grew up around here in the 70s you'll remember the catchy C&H Pure Cane Sugar commercials on TV.

This morning, after 140 years of production, the last shipment of Hawaii sugar left Maui.

While not technically 'local' one of my favorite north-west (Seattle) commercials was this Mickey Rooney gem from about 1976 for Rainier Beer, which won a bunch of awards:

The outrageous Dick Balsh Chevrolet commercials where Balsh, long hippie hair, wild "mod" getup (think Don Cherry on acid) and insane laugh while he beat the s*** out of perfectly good cars on his lot with a sledgehammer was another favorite.

If I remember correctly the same creators we're responsible for this commercial:

Think some of the same actors.

How about a Growing Pains reunion with the ghost of Alan Thicke?

Only if Kirk Cameron promises to play Mike Seaver as a self-righteous, born-again Christian.

Funny, I just finished a series called Blindspot (excellent btw) that starred Ashley Johnson, aka Chrissy Sever from Growing Pains.

Also, the soundtrack to this series was brilliant. The director commissioned Matt Berninger to do a cover of Dear Prudence for the final scene. If anyone can point me to a source for this track I’ll mail you a doughnut.

Matt.
