The original Bunmeido Kasutera commercial

Via a comment from Ned (Thanks, Ned!) , here is the video of the original Bunmeido Kasutera commercial from the 1960s that I mentioned in my kasutera article:

The little teddy bears are singing:

Kasutera number one,
Telephone number two,
Three o'clock snack is Bunmeido

The version I remember was in color, probably from the late '70s or so, but it was basically the same bear puppets. It makes no sense whatsoever, I know. So amusing, quaint, and kawaii, ne. :P

That is very charming, especially the little tales up at the end. A little Japanese music done to a French can can. Cute.
