A bit like ribena toothpaste iirc, but was the bear in the ads someone like blues singer/ voiceoverist   Alexis Korner?  I can remember some scatological graffiti connected with the tag line on a college wall when I was a yoof. Bad as it was, it didnt have the occult effects (some of which I can hear out of the office window as I type) of....Sunny Delight.

I do recall that in an earlier version of the commercial the bear's response to drinking the stuff was a series of ululations and vocalisations which included yelling the name Rimsky-Korsakov at the top of his voice

As a young man I harbored the populist idea of writing for the public. I learned that the public didn't care. So I decided to write for myself. Since then people have gotten interested - Elliott Carter

So perhaps they approached the late Cormac Rigby to be the bear but he was indisposed?

I hope he'd have done it in a dinner-jacket and black tie.
