This ad was aired only a few times in the very early '80s, but was memorable because it was so bizarre.
1001 was a multi-purpose cleaning and polishing fluid that is sadly no longer with us- a sort of cosmetic equivalent of WD-40. It's name sprang from the claim that it had 1001 uses. The ad. was a short cartoon, which opened with a glum downtrodden housewife hoovering her living room, when suddenly an enormous cat with a German accent springs into view, singing 'Von Tousand und Von, Hi Ho!" He goes on to transform the lady's day, by demonstrating how the amazing lotion can halve her housework- it ended with them both dancing across the room with the housewife twirling her vacuum cleaner like a cheeleader's baton.
The cat was almost as big as she was, and had a vamp-ish face with protruding teeth and a bat-like snout. And WHY did he have a German accent? Your guess is as good as mine!
