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.

Dave Allen and Monty Python - A Great Sunday Night on Channel 11! If you watch this show notice that Allen lost the top of his left forefinger. He tells many different stories about how he lost it.

I'd gotten a DVD compilation of some of his works - apparently an import (must've been that Amazon link 'Polyrasmatazz' mentioned). Fortunately, I have a multi-region DVD player to play it on.

And some commercial stations ran DAaL. In New York City, WPIX Channel 11 ran it for a time in 1975, and then in 1980 it was WOR Channel 9's turn (one of his later seasons).

The details have been duly filled in by the pertinent elves in charge of fleshing out same.

Wonder what cameras were used by 'FLD then - Ikegamis? Philips'?

The one that was on Kingery Road/IL Route 83 is now Binney's and is quite a place

This has been credited as one of the longest running ads ever in American Television History. I remember seeing it so many times that the orchestral harp and bust [whom I believe is Beethoven] became well-remembered images. It also was where I first heard of Tchaikovsky's and Grieg's names [and I confess that I mis-remembered the 2nd featured work as 'Full Moon & Eight Empty Arms', that's a love song for a octopus ;) ]

I thought there was another Chicago TV late movie show that also used "Take Five" as well. Often I think of the Late Movie and Chicago jazz clubs when I here "Take Five" [although it was recorded in NYC]

What ever happened to the fuzzy-memories version of this ad with the gunfire at the end?

I had wanted one of these computers since I had the Colecovision. After all the huge problems the ADAM had, I am glad I never did.

I remember seeing this ad several times just before I turned 5 [I was in Homewood IL at the time]. This was a surprise seeing this ad again!
