Mortein Commercials - Louie the Fly

Postby Charles » Wed Nov 24, 2010 4:02 pm

I discovered these animated commercials and thought I'd feature a few of them here.

Mortein is a brand of insecticide in Australia. It's marketed through the use of an animated character by the name of Louie the Fly. There's other support characters as well.

It's news to me, but it appears that Louie has been around since 1957 in ads for Mortein, similar to the Raid commercials in the US. Some of these commercials are pretty good. Take a look.

Here's Louie the fly from 1962.
