That's Pat Summerall, of course, voicing the True Value commercial.

Boy this was a great show. Four interesting guys around a table talking - so simple!

The "Tigger-style voiceover" is Fleegle, the Banana Split that Winchell voiced.


Comment posted in Channel 6 (Nashville) - "A Primitive Weather Channel Christmas" (Excerpt, 1975) by ToledoSoul on Friday, April 28th, 2017 at 7:13pm CT

Recently someone added this clip from CBS's 60 Minutes from 1970 that told of the earliest cable TV outlets springing up around the country. In one scene, they show off this actual device that featured a camera pointed at a mirror that moved around back and force showing off the dials and whatever notices placed on this counter. I'm guessing the Nashville cable outlets was the same exact thing except for the differences in the dials used.

One thing I liked about vacationing was we always drove. If we were driving to Florida or Minnesota or wherever, it meant that we were staying in some town or city at least one night before reaching our destination....so before we got to a hotel, I would beg my mom or dad to stop somewhere and get a TV GUIDE. First thing I did was scan the page of the next morning lineup...then like some kind of weirdo, I'd make sure I was up earlier than the first show I wanted to watch...seeing cartoons in other viewing areas outside of Chicago seemed like a real treat...many stations still ran things like Woody Woodpecker or Tom and Jerry with the full opening/ending titles (something WFLD cut in the late 70's...yet they left the openings to Popeye). Another treat for me, like this example, some had generic blanket titles like CARTOON CARNIVAL and you never knew what was coming up.

My dad probably said something along these lines to me on the very afternoon this aired...

"Why don't you go outside and ride the snowmobile with your brother..isn't he taping this anyways? And don't sit so close to the tv!!"

There was a time when shows in syndication had to bear different titles because the programs were still running on the networks they originated from. Anyone remember Robert Young, Family Doctor that entered syndication within the last year or two Marcus Welby, M.D. was on the ABC schedule? And so it was with Happy Days Again.

Very cool!

I just had a horrible dream that Marshall Field's got bought out by some big store out of New York and they changed the name and are now talking about selling off or leasing parts of the State Street store. Oh wait, that really happened.

WTH is up with Dusty? It looks like the way over-tanning mom.
