Default Re: What was this Australian balloon brand?

As to what was in that video, unless you were there, I daresay it is almost impossible to say. In my experience, balloons being a branded item was not a widely known concept until somewhat recently. Even now, I still encounter people surprised they can be identified by brand. As well as that, we've seen balloon makers disappear in the last decade - well, there were probably lots more small brands way back then, too.
I guess we’ll never know then! But I wish I could’ve had some of those Gaspo printed balloons. Love those. Also speaking of brands, there was this episode of Mister Rogers from 1982 where he showed footage of a balloon factory. And it wasn’t Pioneer or Qualatex, it was a now defunct company named Van Penn Balloons, located in Pennsylvania. I wonder how long they’ve been gone.
