Cartoons and newsreels before the feature movie at a theater


"An apple a day keeps the doctor away"


Phone booths


Outdoor movies


Breaking coconuts with a hammer to eat the coconut and drink the milk

Collecting coins


It's Howdy Doody time

Roller Derby 


Jai alai [in Las Vegas]


Vinyl records


8-track tapes


Betamax


VHS


Traffic cops


Those TV cliffhanger serials where you wonder how will the man whose car is about to go over a cliff not die, only to find out the next day he ingeniously opens the door and jumps out before it goes over the cliff :-) 
   
A relative telling you as a kid that it is a sin not to eat all your food because they are children starving in the world

Occupy Wall Street


The tea party


Flash Gordon

Sarah Palin


Jesse Jackson

"Tastes great, less filling"


"Hey kid, catch" ["mean Joe" Greene's jersey]


Stealing home at a MLB game - or even an attempt to steal home

Real hot meals on airplanes

Jukeboxes


The nurse in elementary school "painting" your throat when it's sore


The milk man


Dry ice being delivered to your house

Black Jack gum


Teaberry gum


All day suckers [lollipops] 


Baseball double headers [real ones-two for the price of one, not these day night deals]


Chocolate phosphates


Downtown drugstore diners where in the back of the store you could get the best hamburgers ever

and last but not least, whatever happened to: 

"Whatever happened to" lists?
