Toonfomercial: The introduction of Glade (1956)

S. C. Johnson & Co., makers of Raid bug sprays and other products, introduced Glade Air Fresheners in 1956. Like Raid, the company utilized a mix of live action & animation in their introductory ad, narrated by Michael Rye.

The animation is not as flashy as the Raid spots, and the company had hired animation legend Tex Avery to direct the Raid ads.
