248. “Something new is coming to town and George the milkman is bringing it ’round.”

The episode:Commando Cody pt. 6,” the short in front of “The Slime People,” ep. 108

The riff: Sung in a bouncy voice by Joel as an old jalopy swings around the corner and zooms past the camera.

The explanation: Joel is singing a snatch from a late 1970s commercial for breakfast cereal, Kellogg’s Graham Crackos. In the commercial, George the milkman would literally bring Graham Crackos to someone’s door along with the milk. As for the cereal, they were obviously flavored like graham crackers. I wonder how similar they would have been to today’s Golden Grahams. We’ll never know, because the brand is long gone.

Novelty factor: No idea at all, but I guessed that it would be from a commercial due to their fondness for them.
