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.

Is that cottage cheese on the plate, or some kind of tartar sauce?

PVX: I was a master control operator in the 1990s and 2000s, and the ISCI codes were 4 letters and 4 numbers. An Ad Council public service announcement started with the letter C and three letters for the campaign, the digits would start with the year the spot was created, the revision or version number, and the last 2 digits being the length of the ad, so a 30 second Smokey the Bear Forest Fire Prevention PSA from 1999 would have been CNFF-9130.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5-x-9LciYA is basically the same ad about 13 years earlier sans the baby.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar's first commercial is for DAS Smurf Modelling Clay. He would have been 8 years old here.

The reaction of how Moe and Curly turned around to look at the wall paper is still funny as heck to me!! LOL!!!!

Additional note: CHCH in Hamilton began rerunning the series as of January 21, 2019, with special guest appearances by the Diff'rent Strokes main cast in that first episode (originally aired August 24, 1979 on NBC), and a larger cast than what we'd be accustomed to in later seasons as the girls grew up over the years.

George Clooney appeared in a number of Season 7 episodes of The Facts of Life starting with S7E2, which was the episode WGN ran on this particular day.
