Psychedelic Howard Johnson's

This late Sixties animated TV spot for the once-nationwide restaurant/motel chain Howard Johnson's targets kinder of all colors with a mighty hip interpolation of "Frere Jacques."

You still see HoJo branded motor lodges around, but the restaurants have all but gone the way of the dodo. HoJoland.com reports only three Howard Johnson restaurants remain in business in Maine (Bangor) and upstate New York (Lake Placid, Lake George).
