Match the Ice Cream Advertisement to Its Year of Publication

According to the International Dairy Foods Association on today's date May 12th, in 1777 — that's 231 years ago! — the first advertisement for ice cream was printed. It appeared in the New York Gazette and publicized the gloriousness that is ice cream. To commemorate the occasion I've found a bunch of old ice cream advertisements. Can you guess what year they were published?

I got most right, but it was only easy to guess because of the design of it. Some were a little iffy though when it comes to the difference of whether it must be from the 50s or 40s or some other decade. The penguin one doesn't look like any ad I've seen from the 60s so I definitely didn't get that right.
