Remember this commercial from the 1980s that featured a claymation clown, and beckoned kids to call implying that they would become a rockstar?
They had song that went like this in the commercial:
"Time to rock and roll with chuckles the clown
We are waiting for the sound of your tone
you can be in the chuckles band
Just sing into the telephone."
I'm actually trying to find this commercial but with no luck. Both a Google and youtube search brings up mostly stuff about the unrelated "Chuckles the clown" from the Mary Tyler Moore show but nothing about this commercial.

I have been racking my brain trying to remember this. All I could remember is that I used to get in trouble for calling this clown before school when I was a kid. I can't believe there are only 2 other people in the world that know what I am talking about.

I've been looking for the commercial as well, 32 years old and I still remember the commercial and the lyrics. I always catch myself singing it every now and then. I need help.

My sister thinks I'm crazy and made the whole thing up. Thank you for posting the lyrics and to the person that said 'I wanna be in the Chuckles Band I'm gonna sing into my telephone" I sang this song all last week when I saw a woman who dyed her hair crazy and told my sorority sisters she looked like Chuckles the Clown. Nope it's not on YouTube but it's gotta be out there somewhere. Thumbs up to all the chuckles fans.

I'm 34 years old, and I remember this commercial. When I sing the song to my wife and friends, they don't remember this hilarious commercial. I remember calling this number, running up my Mama's phone bill, and getting the most memorable ads whoopin'. Thanks a lot Chuckles!

Ive been looking for that same commercial. I remember getting spanked because I ran up the phone bill over 200 dollars calling chuckles the clown. I thought I was the only one who remembered. I was telling my nephew about it. He didn't believe me until my mom confirmed it.

A beer for anyone who may have this commercial on VHS and can upload it to youtube. The closest thing I could find was an easter bunny hotline commercial that seems to be by the same company (same Claymation style)
