Colour across the ages research

Al and I have decided to emphasise the change over the decades in the advert, Sony Boy himself should change in colour gradually before making the massive leap to three dimensions. So I have researched some adverts to give an idea of what colour Sony Boy is going to take. This first one is the start, the fifties' Oscar Meyer Wiener ad.
This is the 1965 colour version. The colours are a bit saturated at this point.
This is a 1979 Eureka Vacuum Cleaner advert. The colours are brighter but still retain a faded drawn like quality.
This is from a Cadbury's Caramel advert from the late eighties/early nineties. Full blown, vivid colours, ink and paint.
This is from the Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. When Sony Boy turns CGI, we thought a cel-shaded look was the way to go. We toyed with the idea of doing full-blown Pixar like effects, but we realised it would be impossible for use to do that. Rather than having a poor Pixar facsimile, we decided to do decent cel shading.

Here are the commercials these pictures are originally from.
