    Default Peas adverts

    I remember an advert for Birds Eye Peas in the early 70s with Patsy Kensit as a little girl.
    Her last line was - 'Next week we're going to make paper animals'
    The jingle was - 'Birds Eye Peas, sweet as the moment when the pod went pop'.

    I also remember an advert for Farrows Peas.
    The slogan was - 'The best peas went to Farrows'.

    'Dreams come true if you want them to'

    I remember seeing that patsy kensit advert aswell.There were a few programmes during the 90's,where patsy would be interviewed,and they would show that advert.
    I also recall an advert for peas,where a cartoon pea called cannonball would roll about,and there would be a song that everybody thought was great.Here is a link that has a few worded descriptions of tv adverts,and their contents/theme tunes.

    How about that one where the narrator said "Hey Pea....remember the good old days..." reducing the pea to tears and turning it mushy - made me cry too!!

    I cannot remember which company made the peas,i have tried to google it but found nothing.I am sure the song was a famous song from america,maybe with the words changed slightly.Maybe a fast soul/r & b song with a male singer.

    I have just given it a thought,and i do recall the cartoon character: Cannonball,was much larger than the other smaller peas in the advert,and the song was about Cannonball being unable to enter the smaller peas bag,because he was too big.That made me remember Birds Eye Petite Pois Peas.I can't find any info on the net yet though.

    I think i may have found the Birds Eye Petite Pois Peas song featuring the cartoon characther Cannonball.



    I do recall Cannonball bouncing off the bag of peas and crying and moaning that he could not get in.I am also sure i recall him,or the little peas,screaming: '' I / We Hear you knocking,but you can't come in ''.
    Anybody know if i am correct with this? It was much faster and rockier than most versions i have heard,and would explain why so many people loved the adverts song.
