TV Ads – 1980 – Lucite Paint + Peanuts Charlie Brown And Snoopy For MetLife Insurance


This paint advertisement is for LUCITE Wall Paint….which originally was a product of DuPont back in 1936….when it first came on the market as an acrylic paint that is a fast-drying and made of pigment suspended in acrylic polymer emulsion….which are water-soluble….but become water-resistant when dry. Depending on how much the paint is diluted with water, or modified with acrylic gels, mediums, or pastes, the finished acrylic painting can resemble a watercolor or an oil painting, or have its own unique characteristics not attainable with other media.  Acrylic paint is typically used for crafting and in art classes in schools because it does not require any chemicals…. and rinses away with just water…..plus it is less likely to leave a stain on clothes than oil paint. 

There has probably not been too many television advertising campaigns that were more successful or more identifiable in the public’s eye than “Peanuts characters” Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Lucy needing and selling MetLife Insurance.
