Inspired by "Mad Men's" dazzling depiction of modern American advertising, we dug up this wholesome cereal commercial, which debuted about the same time. If you whipped up this concoction, you could then send away for a plastic toy, which came with a rocket, a launcher, two model spacemen and a map of the moon. The ad was produced in 1959 by Craven Films, the company behind several classic Colt 45 Liquor ads.
