It used to be that German TV programs ran uninterrupted. All ads were grouped together, between cartoon hosts, before the broadcasts. Here's one such 3:30 minute block, which includes ads for Ritter Sport (chocolate), Kukident (toothpaste), Quench (beverage powder), Esso (North Sea oil platform -!), Gard (shampoo).
Then, a preview follows for "Der große Preis" as well as the intro to a TV show called "Der Fuchs von Övelgönne" (The Fox from Övelgönne).
