purina kitten chow


1975 Purina Cat Chow Food Ad,

Vintage 1970s magazine advertisement, Purina Cat Chow cat food, 1975

Notice the creepy, almost Joker-esque smiles on the three cats’ faces – shudder. This apparently is what happens when trusting little Fluffy eats Purina. The ad folks were likely going for "cute," but ended up with "ghoulish," IMO.

Tagline:
"Wow Wow Wow. Look What’s Happened to Chow Chow Chow."

First sentence in ad text:
"Cats who’ve tried it are all smiles, smiles, smiles."

Published in Family Circle, December 1975, Vol. 87 No. 6
