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".

Side note: Rod Grams, the WIFR reporter in the ID promo, later became lead anchor at KMSP in Minneapolis-St. Paul, then eventually became a Republican US Senator from his home state of Minnesota for one term (1995-2001). He died in 2013.

The voiceover on this spot was done by none other than Herb Graham, a very familiar voice in Chicago for decades.

I remember him best from his program on the old FM100, called The Hour in the Middle of the Evening. He was also the voice of Bubbie Beaver, on Channel 2's Sunday morning program, The Magic Door.

This somewhat reminded me of Stars on 45.

I tried playing it again (on Firefox). I had to let it buffer several times but I got it to play but the sound still wasn't in sync with the picture.

I'm currently on the go and using my IPad so right now I can't play anything. I will have to try it tomorrow when I have a chance.

@Loyal32Fan: All that is on display at the new Museum of Broadcast Communications. The chair, painting of Garfield Goose, and the bookcase are on display right when you walk in the doors and Frazier's costume is on display by the Garfield Goose puppets, which is in an area that also has all the different costumes from Bozo's Circus and Ray Rayner show. While I do like the building since they have more room for exhibits, I do NOT like having to pay $12 for admission! It's like what happened to the Museum of Science and Industry. For the longest time, it was free admission then when they started charging admission, it got expensive. I dread the day they start charging admission to Lincoln Park Zoo. Sadly, I think that day will happen within a few years. Will there be ANYTHING left to do for free in Chicago anymore?

Smctopia - Are you still having problems playing the entire clip? (I'm waiting on posting new clips until we have these issues worked out - I really wanted to move forward with the new file format)

I remember visiting the Museum of Broadcast Communications back in 1998. I saw Thomas' costume from his Garfield Goose show on display. I also saw the chair with the book on it from Family Classics also on display. It was very interesting.

I bet the reason Wicket had the last name Warrick is because he was played by then child actor Warrick Davis who would later become popular as the star of the movie Willow.
