watch it: 1960s Chatty Cathy doll commercial

No, it’s not a lost episode of The Twilight Zone:


“Just pull the ring — you never know what she’ll say next.” She could say:

“Why don’t you love me anymore?”

“Can I have one of Mommy’s Valiums?”

“Just so you know, I buried the cat under the shed…”

    Hehe, your comments make me think of the Simpson’s Tree House of Horror episode with the evil pull-string Krusty doll.

  • Rosalyn

    This explains why my Dad would call my more talkative little friends “Chatty Cathy.”.

    Gee, people sure had longer attention spans back then. Seemed like the commercial went on forever.

    Maybe Cathy just needed some ritalin.

  • Like Rosalyn, I’ve heard people use the phrase “Chatty Cathy” before but I never knew that was the name of an actual toy.

    “Why don’t you love me anymore?”

    “Can I have one of Mommy’s Valiums?”

    “Just so you know, I buried the cat under the shed…”

    “Kill the postman.”

    “You want what they want.”

    “Danny’s not there right now, Mrs. Torrance.”

    “I won’t let anyone come between us any more.”

    “You should be running.”

    “Hell is a teenage doll.”

  • “i wish they taught shopping in school”

    “let’s bake some cookies for the boys”

    “don’t ask me, i’m just a girl”

  • “Palin in 2012.”

    “Who needs Roe vs. Wade anyway?”

    “Theocracy is a good thing.”

    “I heart Twilight.”

    chatty cathy – the stuff twilight zone episodes are made of.
