Raid (1989)

Voice actor and professional announcer Pelusa Suero have been making Raid commercials for more than 30 years and he still does it today at 84, even though he rightly complains about the poor quality of today's versions.

That's because Tex Avery isn't doing them any more.

Avery was never involved in any of those featuring Pelusa's work. In fact, it is his voice, more than the animation that make them memorable.

In fact, these could have never been produced in the United States.
