Pineapples came in chunks in a tin, nobody ever saw a real one.

 

Back in the 50s, Salvin (I think he was called) drove his horse-pulled covered wagon stocked with fruit and veg around Walkley, and after dark the kids would follow behind and try to nick pineapples and other fruit off the back.

Also there was the Cadbury's advert for their chocolate bar with the songover 'Everyone's a fruit and nut case', they had to pull that one after complaints from  mental health authorities, so there was a PC brigade around even in 1966.

Mackeson was a popular milk stout in those days. I visited (I live in Canada) Sheffield several years ago, walked into a bar and asked for a Mackeson. He looked at me like I was barmy. "Blimey. Where have you been all these years?" he asked, as though I'd just been released from prison. How was I to know it is either not made at all anymore or hardly ever drunk?

This advert was shown well after 1966 more like early 80s when it was removed.

I can't find any reference to it having to be pulled,  just that it was dated and Cadburys changed the name. Can you substantiate this in any way?

Remember the TV ads for Mackeson's stout? A bunch of footballers playing like \they're sleep walking. Someone shouts "Mackeson" and they spring to life. We used to shout "Mackeson " from the Kop to wake the Owls up. Maybe they should try it with the present crew.

It was taken off for the reason St Peter said but it was more in the 1980s when the PC brigade took over rather than in 1966 .

I might have been confusing that commercial with  earlier Cadbury's ones, those being introduced by actor Arthur Mullard that didn't use the term 'nut case' and just ran their course rather than being taken off,

Thank you for clearing that up, could you supply any sort of back up to your assertion that it was taken off for anything other than commercial reasons?
