'Male and female cartoon cigars sing and dance on a stage.'

Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

...Muriel Cigars got their start in the early 1900's, when they were made by a company called P. Lorillard and Company out of Jersey City, New Jersey...

By 1959, the Muriel Cigars brand had started to fall on some tough times, which caused P. Lorillard and Company to sell the brand to Consolidated Cigars...

Throughout the 1960's and 1970's, Muriel Cigars was part of a very aggressive advertising campaign...

...The most famous people to take up the Muriel cause were actress and entrepreneur Edie Adams, and her comedian husband Ernie Kovacs. Adams' Muriel television commercials became some of the most popular commercials of the era.

Altadis was a multinational purveyor and manufacturer of cigarettes, tobacco and cigars. Altadis was formed via a 1999 merger between Tabacalera, the former Spanish tobacco monopoly and SEITA, the former French tobacco monopoly. Through its international holdings, including ownership of the former Consolidated Cigar Holdings and half ownership of the Cuban state tobacco monopoly, Habanos S.A., Altadis was the largest producer of mass market and premium cigars in the world, as well as the fourth largest producer of tobacco products. The company was acquired by the British tobacco giant Imperial Tobacco (now Imperial Brands) in 2008...

In 1926, France concentrated its tobacco industry into a single state-run monopoly called SEIT (Service d'Exploitation industrielle des tabacs). The production of matches (allumettes) was added to the state monopoly's purview in 1935 and the company was renamed SEITA (Société d'exploitation industrielle des tabacs et des allumettes).

Following the end of World War II, Spain similarly established a state-owned tobacco monopoly called Tabacalera, Sociedad Anonima, Compañia Gestora del Monopolio de Tabacos y Servicios Anejos, commonly known as Tabacalera.

Throughout the decades of the 1960s and 1970s, national markets were gradually opened up to the importation of foreign tobacco brands and the national tobacco monopolies of both France and Spain were weakened and gradually privatized, with SEITA employees losing status as civil servants in 1962 and the company losing both its monopoly of tobacco cultivation and tobacco sales by 1971.


SEITA purchased Consolidated Cigar Holdings Inc. of Fort Lauderdale[2] in the United States. Consolidated Cigar was a large purveyor of cigars such as the Dominican made editions of Romeo y Julieta and Montecristo.

In August 2000, Consolidated Cigar and Havatampa, owned by Tabacalera, merged to form Altadis USA.

In September 2000 Altadis purchased a 50% interest in the Cuban state tobacco monopoly, Habanos SA.

In 2003, Altadis acquired the internet seller 800-JR Cigar, Inc., one of the largest cigar retailers in the United States.

2008 sale

On 18 July 2007, the board of Altadis backed a €16.2 billion offer for the company by Imperial Tobacco (now Imperial Brands). The acquisition was cleared by the Spanish stock market regulator on 7 November 2007, paving the way for the creation of the world's fourth largest tobacco company. The acquisition was completed on 25 February 2008 with the delisting of Altadis from the Bolsa de Madrid...
