Bugs - The free-spirited bugs (usually cockroaches) who invade kitchen
spaces and other living areas in a series of TV commercials produced for S.C.
Johnson's insecticide advertisements since 1956.
Raid's deadly fumes killing off a pesky bug
The Raid bugs tremble with fear
(voice provided by Mel Blanc) when they set their eyes on the spray can of Raid
about to shot its deadly fumes in their direction. As these creepy crawlers run
for cover, they usually cry "Run for your lives! It's RAID!!!"
In the 1970s, legendary animator Tex Avery (died in August, 1980) created the
artwork for the now popular RAID insect spray ad campaign.
The S.C. Johnson & Sons Inc. was founded in 1886 by Samuel C. Johnson.
