“I’m not a bad girl! You’re a bad mommy!” – 17 Strange Vintage Laxative Adverts for Fletcher’s Castoria From the 1940s

These adverts for Fletcher’s Castoria date from 1939-1941 and feature a lot of finger pointing, angry parents, threats of spanking, and constipated children. There’s also lot of talk about how sensitive a child’s constitution is, but a good whack with a slipper was obviously fine!

But fear not, by the end of the adverts everyone is smiling and opening their bowels all over the place.
