Because They Gave Us Barbies … and Hot Wheels … and Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots!

I don’t know about you but I grew up with the Jerry Lewis telethon every Labor Day. Truth? We didn’t have cable until I was in high school so the television entertainment pickings were pretty slim. And then there was Band-Aid, one of my favorite collaborative musical efforts of all time, followed by USA for Africa, Farm-Aid, Earth Day, Save the Duck-Billed Platypus … or the Plat-Billed Ducktypus … or something like that. I can’t remember.

Anyway … when the Mattel Corporation contacted me to help them with their Easter Toy Basket Giveaway, I jumped at the chance. After all, they gave me years of joy through Barbie. Which, as many of you know, I’m still enjoying today. Plus there was talk of chocolate. Sold.

So, without further ado, I want to share with you today a very moving video. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You could possibly sneeze, in which case you should really have a tissue handy. Go ahead. I’ll wait while you get one. Yes, toilet paper is fine, too. Just hurry up.

Now … watch the video and, when you’re done, take a chance on the big prize. All you have to do the enter the contest is click the rafflecopter link below and sign up.

Wait!!!! Don’t forget About the contest. Seriously, who doesn’t want toys?

Good luck!

Let’s save these bunnies together!

  1. In my never ending quest to harvest all the low hanging fruit, all I can say is
    What? WHAT?!?
    (Yes, that’s exactly what I meant.)

  2. Well this is different. No cheese here.

  3. Apparently, Google Chrome has it in for me because I had to go to the dreaded Internet Explorer to get audio on the YouTube video… but it was cute! Save the Damned Bunny, for God’s Sake!!

  4. Too funny! Ry would totally eat the bunny.

  5. and… BOURBON!!!

    • I could have sworn it was Dan Ackroyd who always parodied Julia Child putting booze in everything. Like… one splash in the cake, two in my mouth… oh, you know what this recipe needs? BOURBON! (Said in bad Julia Child-style accent)

  6. The Jerry Lewis Telethon holds some of my best SUMMER memories..and he always had BARRY on 😉

    and those SNL parodies are the funniest thing ever, what a trip down memory lane.

  7. The only celebrity I support or endorse is YOU (and Ms MelMags), so I entered. 😉

  8. I was telling Mel that Ryan thinks toys come at both Christmas and Easter. He thinks they’re related in some way. I did enter the contest, good luck to me. I know this might not be the right place to ask, but will you follow me on twitter please. Great blog by the way. 🙂

  9. My favorite part was always when Sammy Davis Jr came out, and I was able to stare endlessly into his one glass eye…

  10. I came back over to see if you responded to my comment about NOT pushing to save bunnies, but soon realized I never hit “submit” and so it never posted. Either that or you deleted my comment. NICE, MICHELE! 🙂

    Fine. Save the darn chocolate bunnies, but PLEASE save one (or five) for me. Fun post!

  11. Quick, someone get KaiJay (or KayJai) and tell her that there was yet another Hugo Reynes spotting. Hugo’s Doppelganger (for LOST fans) was also spotted at our (KJ and I) place of work back in 2009…and now here he is in this infomercial…KJ is a fan of the guy (Jorge Garcia)

    • I remember watching the Jerry Lewis Telethon every Labor Day Weekend. He usually had Frank Sinatra on, that was always great entertainment. I also watched the Live Aid Concert in 1984. It was awesome! More stars on one show than you could ever imagine.
