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...

Comment posted in Asch and Associates - "Bill Cassidy Commercial Demo Reel" (1975?) by Loyal32Fan on Sunday, June 19th, 2016 at 6:26pm CT

I remember drinking those diet sodas back in the '70s. They had a nasty aftertaste, almost tasted like metal.

In some ways, the Asch logo is reminiscent of a portion of the logo for WNET Channel 13 in Newark, NJ / New York City, as used from c.1972 to about 1977. I wonder if the same designer did both logos?


Comment posted in Mattel - "Mork & Mindy Toys" (Commercial, 1979) by LaPrincess on Wednesday, June 15th, 2016 at 9:27pm CT

For some unexplained reason I received the Mork and Mindy game from some program that was giving all the kids toys for Christmas because so many apparently were poor (we weren't so I don't know why they included all kids). Anyway it was a card game and one of the creatures on the card was called oopadoo and we would call one of our dogs that.

Why is it when I watch this, I end up thinking of the Weird Al Yankovic video "I Lost On Jeopardy"?

You have to admit, the man had a distinctive voice.

However, that wig was specifically made for radio.

This is the man that Garry Meier got his "Clif" charachter from. :-)

I remember this jingle. I was always fascinated by this store and loved when we took a ride there. I mentioned this on another video but this location has an interesting history. One of the first drive-ins was built on this spot then was torn down (not sure if it was to build Dispensas). After this was closed they built the tallest building (outside the city limits of Chicago) in Illinois.
