Sweet Pickles - "Circle The Bus" (Commercial, 1983)

Here's another commercial for the Sweet Pickles books for kids. This one does feature a bus, but it's not a real bus - just cardboard. Also, it doesn't have the Sweet Pickles jingle - that must have come later.

This aired on local Chicago TV on Friday, January 7th 1983.

I had several Sweet Pickles books as a kid back in the 1970s and I really liked them. My favorite was called "Moody Moose Buttons" about a manic-depressive moose. I also had one about a crabby alligator janitor, another about a quail, and one about a lion. I think I also had the books with the camel and zebra.

I also remember the imfamous bus from the 1980s that would pull up to the house and costumed characters waved from inside. I remember my mom telling my younger sister "they don't really do that if you order it!" The jingle was "Smart Moms know how kids' minds grow".

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.

The wrong slide of the clapboard says "B J Dirty Dragon 1244 4/12/1973"
