This brings back SOOOOO many memories, I LOVED this psa as a kid (and seeing it again, it hasn't lost any of it's magic) I am so glad that it has survived and I can finally see it again. Also right after it was a promo for my favorite show "Son of Svengoolie". WOW Fuzzy thanks for bringing me back!!! As Captain America says "You're Doing a Super-Hero Job, Keep it up - Fuzzy!! :)

Yay!!! I have been hunting for this forever! I did not realize it was so short or that Captin America specifically was involved = fuzzy. I always did think that freezer guy "The Cold Air Crook" was a creep. Oh, the old channel 32...

Rick: I'm not able to update this post. Are you able to change my website link to the current address of www.waltdatedworld.com ? I am having trouble with traffic still showing in Google from my old site address (we are working on redirects but it's really a messed up, long story) and this was one thing that showed up. Thanks!

Voiceover by Dave Martin, who was WCFL's program director at the time. He later held the same job at WCLR, and voiced this commercial, too.

After his near fatal car accident in 1954 that left him blind in one eye, was it really the best idea to have Sammy Davis Junior getting in a car ready to drive off after mailing a letter?

At the start of this ad, there is a 0 in the upper left hand corner, a 1 in the upper right hand corner, a 4 in the lower left hand corner and a 3 in the lower right hand corner.


Comment posted in WMAQ Channel 5 - NewsCenter5 - "Disco Demolition Already In Progress" (1979) by Gator Girl on Sunday, July 10th, 2016 at 3:10pm CT

This happened exactly on my birthday, but since I lived in Florida I didn't hear much about it until some time later.

I really don't believe disco was all that bad. The real problem was that it became so ridiculously popular that it was everywhere, and pretty much everything was being done as disco. There was a lot of garbage with a dance beat that was put out back then, and people just got sick of it. But that's no excuse for violence. It would have just faded away quietly in a matter of time if this hadn't happened.
