I remember going to a Burger Chef right into Indiana (Dyer or Schererville) and they had his really cool map thing where you could play with cars on.

The copyright probably says 1975. (Probably uploading in high-quality 640 x 480 might be a clue to answering this mystery - just a suggestion.)

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burger_Chef , many locations became Hardee's and the final Burger Chef closed in 1996.

I remember the old Burger Chef in Goshen, Indiana. Great burgers...also remember "the works" bar.

Forgot that they sold fish at one time.

I think it's a Dairy Queen now.

Burger Chef and Jeff appear toward the end of the commercial.

It's either a 1975 or '76 copyright. I really had to strain my eyes to get a good look at it and even then I couldn't completely make it out.

I can't get that girl's voice out of my head. I keep saying to random people, "Why don't you try our new mariner dinner?" while bobbing my head. No joke.

He will be missed.

Off the Wall was just one of four college-themed sitcoms that sank over the next two years, though this one was a year before Animal House. In 1979, AH ripoffs Brothers & Sisters, Delta House, and Co-Ed Fever would all bomb, with the latter lasting a whopping single episode like this stinker.


Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - "Comedy Tonight!" (Promo, 1979) by FieldGal44 on Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 at 2:17pm CT

"Comedy Tonight" was adapted for a Stove Top commercial in 1986.

Comment posted in WSNS Channel 44 - "DePaul Basketball" (Station ID, 1978) by FieldGal44 on Friday, September 21st, 2018 at 12:36am CT

The 1977-78 DePaul team was led by the mighty Dave Corzine, who went pro after that season and, of course, would spend seven years with the Bulls.

I ate way too much Quaker instant oatmeal growing up. The raisins & spice was my favorite.

Good Lord, this is not the way to sell a radio station. As Fuzzy says, utterly generic, not to mention redundant ("old great classics"). What genre are they selling?? Plus, the camera is right in his face like an '80s PSA, and he sounds like he's hawking something on a street corner. I'm surprised he didn't start by saying "Psst! Hey, kid!"

I may be wrong, but that mic might look like the Electro-Voice EV-667 . . .
