New Jersey’s Jungle Habitat: Where The Wild Things Were

If you were a kid or teen growing up near northern New Jersey in the early-to-mid 1970s, then there’s a good chance you may have visited Jungle Habitat. It was a Warner Brothers-owned safari park encompassing over 900 acres of land in West Milford, New Jersey. During the four years it was in operation, 1,500 animals and 70 different species called Jungle Habitat their home. But in late 1976, after

The Real Story Of The Dodge Brothers

Of all American car companies, I believe Dodge has had the best advertising campaigns. In 2014, in honor of the company’s 100th anniversary, they brought their brand’s founders — brothers Horace and John Dodge — back to life in a series of commercials that do a nice job paying homage to the auto manufacturer’s heritage. The quality of Dodge’s cars and customer satisfaction was on the upswing and

Chevrolet’s Strange Foray Into Folk Rock Music

Remember that time when Chevrolet released a folk rock album about safe driving featuring Carly Simon? I’m sure you have this gem in your music collection, right? No? Well, it happened and the result was called Chevrolet Sings of Safe Driving and You, an unusual marketing piece that comes off a little bit like School House Rock with deep educational lyrics such as, “look at the silent snow but rem

The Somewhat Forgotten Beatles Cartoon Series

Do you remember the animated Beatles cartoon series from the mid-60s? If not, you’re not alone…or if you’re like most Beatlemaniacs, you prefer to pretend it never existed. When it comes to the Beatles’ entire franchise, ABC’s cartoon show The Beatles is like the lone kid sitting by himself at the lunch table. Most Beatles fans despise it and consider it to be ill-conceived rubbish. Yet I think

This Spring and Summer, Visit Someplace New: Your Backyard

Fess up: when’s the last time you stepped out into your backyard? You know, the unfamiliar patch of grassy land that abuts your abode. I only ask because it seems very few people venture outside onto theirs anymore. If I walk or ride my bike through my neighborhood on a beautiful spring or summer day, I only need one hand to count how many people I typically see outdoors. Most of the time, yards o

Steak, Butter, And Eggs, Please: A Return To Retro Eating Habits!

If you grew up in the ’70s like me, you probably remember the margarine craze of that era: we were told that butter was bad for us and would clog our arteries, and somehow substituting the natural dairy food with an imitation spread made of refined vegetable oil, preservatives, artificial colors, and flavors was a healthier option. As a result, we also got inundated with terrible commercials featu

When Coffee Was Just Coffee

At what point does a cup of coffee stop being a cup of coffee? Probably at the point you add caramel brûlée flavoring to it followed by a ridiculous amount of corn syrup and whipped cream on top. I don’t get our country’s and society’s obsession with oversized, unhealthy, sugar-saturated beverages that are marketed as “coffee.” Doctors and the media will list many nutritional reasons for our growi
