GENERAL INFORMATION. The sixth in the Jell-O series (see SML-199), this miniature reflects the change in Young & Rubicam's advertising direction.  While the first five were headlined "Now's the Time for Jell-O," the Lion begins a series of individual ads.  This one says: "Everyone Roars for Jell-O."
