This Sunday January 16th, Outpost Artists Resources will be hosting a night of retro animated advertising curated by Willy Hartland, a distinguished New York City animator. The event, Fresher, Smoother, Creamy, and Delicious: Adverts and other Animated Weirdness from the 50s & 60s, begins at 6pm.

Fresher, Smoother, Creamy and Delicious will feature some awesome vintage advertising, including but not limited to breakfast cereal TV spots, cowboy dancers, super powered vitamins and anthropomorphized clouds. Excited? Here are some samples of the works Hartland has collected for viewing. I love the power-pop inflected Hot Shots jingle, and the black and white loopy line animation is pretty great too.

Check out Outpost’s Tumblr for a copy of the event’s poster. As you will note, homemade beer will also be served, which is important. Outpost is conveniently located at 1665 Norman Street in the up and coming arts neighborhood of Ridgewood off the Halsey stop on the L, so it’s only a handful of subway stops away from Mother Williamsburg, you hipster.
