I always found these commercials to be quite enjoyable and doubtlessly many Canadians agree otherwise they wouldn't still be referencing them after almost 50 years.
The Hinterland's Who's Who series was first commissioned in 1962 and has aired on Canadian television since 1963.
In 2003 the Canadian Wildlife Foundation in cooperation with the Canadian government produced several new commercials with a more modern format.
