    80s insurance commercial.. "Grooowwwwwing Upppp"

    Hey all- I'm trying to track down this commercial shown *constantly* in the mid 80s, at least in Southern California..

    It had a little girl dressed like Madonna in Material Girl. She's applying lipstick and being asked a few questions by a narrator. He finally asks her something like "is there anything you're afraid of?" And she goes "Growwing Upppp".

    I think it was an insurance commercial.

    So, anyone?

    Any other suggestions? I'm surprised no one remembers this. Around 1985 it was on *constantly*. Her "Growwingg Upppp" practically became a catchphrase!

    I'm a big fan of 80's commercials- I've watched all 102 volumes of 80's commercial montages on youtube. I'm sorry but I don't recall this clip, even though some of those ads originate from the San Jose local affilliate. It must have been a regional ad in the SoCal area only.
    My only advice would be to check youtube for the commercial. You never know what you'll find there!

    And checking the IP listed for "Bigbrother" produces disturbing data!

    Right, because a spam bot would intentionally start (and respond to!) a lengthy thread about an esoteric 80s commercial it's trying to track down, with no value to anyone but itself.

    Gee, BigBrother couldn't be a common name at all, could it? Wow, good thing I didn't sign on here with "SpamBot666"

    Dude....Like Molly said, leave te moderating to those in the position, this isn't your place to determine spammers or not.

    You don't own this board, you are not an Admin or a Moderator. Instead you harass a new person calling them a spammer when obviously they weren't Spamming squat!

    Our apologies BigBrother for Dude's, Ummmm....Doucheness!

    Yeah BigBrother, ignore Dude. This is a great place. I hope he didn't scare you off. Keep on posting.

    BTW, I will have to do some research on that commercial and get back to you. It sounds familiar.

    This is how we drive away new people by accusing them of being spammers when they aren't. Next time, Dude if you think a poster is a spammer PM Daffy.

    Thanks a lot all for the help! Torchwood, that would be great- I'm looking for a single soul besides my parents who remember this. It boggles my mind that NO ONE on any forum seems to recall it, as it was on *nonstop* during those years. Please let me know what you find!
