    Good memory! You were right about the dates. I found some of them. You
    can see scans of them here:

    This is the storybook ad campaign, which I guess is different than the
    one animal ads asked about in the original post. I'll look some more
    for those while I have the magazines out.

    You're welcome. I found another one of the Fender Storybook ads, and
    also some of the Animal ads that were mentioned at the beginning of
    this thread. I put some scans of them up here:

  3. Very cool. Thank you again. I had never seen the baboon one, but the
    Starcaster croc looks familiar.

    Best,

    Freep

    Damn. And I was hoping for a copy of the old "smoking caterpillar" ad.

    A hookah-smoking caterpillar has given you the call. I had taken the
    page down... it's up again for your elucidation. The left side will
    make you grow taller, the right side will make you smaller.
