I have no clue. I only know the song because radio presenter Clive Bull on LBC has a little jingle thing of him singing it. I don't remember Meow Mix at all. :o It sounds like a hardcore dance mix of a load of cats meowing! :D

EDIT:


:D

I'll search high & low throughout the WWW for ads or commercial breaks from the 80's. Here's a few for starters

'Jim Davidson he's rude it's true
Roy Chubby he's not Brown he's blue'-Bob Monkhouse


'I'm gonna spank you on your butt-you turn over like a 16-year-old and take it!!'

Even 32 years back they were admitting that 'Christmas goes on much longer than it used to'.
