Christmas Cheer

One commercial I dearly wish was still on TV is this one right here.

The reason it’s great is because, even though it embodies commercialism, it’s the one time that Fred willingly shares his Pebbles with Barney, and they share a real moment of bonding. This always struck me as strange, considering that Fred and Barney are dear friends. Wouldn’t Fred be offering him Pebbles like modern men offer each other beers in exchange for friendship? Plus, why is Barney so antagonistic towards Fred in the Pebbles commercials to begin with? They’re best buddies, like Snoopy and Woodstock. It boggles, I tell you.
