RE: Does anyone remember Burry's Cookies?
I grew up in Southern California and made a couple Burry's Cookie commercials in the late 60's. For Scooter Pies, another kid and I would run up to the Burry's shelf of a staged grocery store and pull out boxes where we could see into "Burryland". We'd point and laugh and animate as we watched the Burry Giants bumbling antics however we were looking into an empty space where the cartoon footage would be inserted. For Lickety Splits, I think we stood next to a cookie conveyor belt going around and inserting fudge. I forget the details, but for a couple of 9 or 10 year olds, it was a blast. We'd get to miss a day or two of school (they did have a set teacher), have box lunches, play hide and seek, then take boxes of Burry's goodies home when it was all over. Our mom would put the boxes on top of the regrigerator and dole out for lunches but with 6 siblings, they went fast. The best part was to see the finished commercial played during Saturday morning cartoons. We kids would jump up and get close to the black and white screen and scream for our folks to come see. Recently I found mini packages of Scooter Pies at Cost Plus and bought a couple for the heck of it. They weren't the same as I remembered, but it was fun to take a nostalgic flash back in time. Good times - good memories.
