Badge Friday: Country Life English Butter


"You'll Never Put A Better Bit Of Butter On Your Knife!"crooned the animated butter men in their West Country farmers accents during several adverts for Country Life English Butter in the 1970s and 1980s. 

They're delightful ditties brightened up many a TV commercial break during this era and here is a badge featuring the  infamous stars.

Buttery renditions of songs such as There's A Tavern In The Town and D' Ya Ken John Peel made their way into the public consciousness making the Butter Men popular mainstays of television advertising for many years.

We don't see much of The Butter Men on TV screens anymore but rumour has it they went their separate ways after creative differences (and a lucrative recording deal with Lurpak!)
