The following song is known by most Australians as it has been used in advertising since 1938 and can be found on many children's music CDs. The song is accompanied by a logo of an aeroplane named Bertie who is recognisable to most Australians.

Aeroplane jelly was first marketed in 1927. The company was founded by Bert Appleroth who allegedly wrote the famous advertising jingle. In 1937 (or '38) five-year-old Joy King recorded I Like Aeroplane Jelly."
