Video of the Week: Hubba Bubba commercial

Here’s one we haven’t seen in a while! In 1981 Timothy went to Arizona and filmed a commercial for Hubba Bubba bubble gum. It’s priceless.

Starring as the Gum Fighter is Western stalwart Don Collier. His sidekick is legendary character actor Dub Taylor, who appeared along with Tim in Crime Wave (1954). Big bubbles, no troubles!

Today’s pic takes another (rather silly) look at the Hubba Bubba bubble gum commercial Timothy appeared in in 1981. Here he’s having a bubble-blowing showdown with the hero.

Tim’s youngest daughter Germain told me that he had no idea how to blow bubble-gum bubbles – she had to teach him how to do it! Take a look at the entire commercial here.

Our pic for today is one that I’m willing to bet you have never seen, at least not for many years, and even if you did, you may not have realized that you were looking at Tim.  In 1981 he went to Arizona and did a Hubba Bubba bubble gum commercial with a Western theme. Naturally, he was the bad guy.

Gum runners!

There is also rumored to be a Sambo’s restaurant commercial out there somewhere with Tim as Frankenstein’s monster. No one can seem to find it anywhere. It’s quickly becoming the Holy Grail of Careyana.
