La Preferida Foods With Harry Caray (Commercial, 1980)

What comes to mind when you think of Harry Caray? If you said Mexican Food products, you'd be correct! Here's a commercial for La Preferida Foods featuring the late, great Sox and Cubs broadcaster.

(Remember, "La Preferida" backwards is "Adireferp Al")

Question for everyone: "If you were a taco, and you were starving, would you eat yourself?" I know I would!

This aired on local Chicago TV early Saturday, September 20th 1980.

Who would agree with me in saying that Chicago had the two greatest pitchmen in the history of sports; Michael Jordan of course and Harry Caray.

Spr463: I would agree that Michael Jordan is an incredibly affective figurehead for product advertisement, but he doesn't say a lot during his commercials.

In the case of Harry, by the time he was making his "Cub Fan, Bud Man" commercials he came across as quite distant and slow (and was rarely pressured to speak in taped-for-broadcast commercials). I am quite pleasantly surprised by how well Harry performs in this commercial. He seems quite together.

May not be Falstaff Beer,but it's still classic Harry!

As you can tell from some of the old play-by-play clips on this site, Harry was among the best broadcasters in sports before his stroke. It's sad that some people remember him only as the slow, colorful old man he was in his later years.

That's awesome that Harry says "Holy Cow! What a meal" with a mouthful of tostadas.

In terms of baseball announcers famous for commercials, there was the case of 1957-98 WPIX Channel 11 (New York) Yankees announcer Phil Rizzuto, who for many years was the ad spokesman for The Money Store. YouTube has many examples of such ads from the 1970's into the '80's.

Aw man, Harry Caray shouldn't have been talking with his mouth full.

I did a tribute to Don this morning on my blog:

He was a dedicated professional and he will be missed.

"Ladies & gentlemen, it's with great admiration that I present for the 2,753rd time. The star of Jeopardy!... Art Fleming!" - Don Pardo on the last NBC telecast of Jeopardy! aired on Friday, January 3, 1975.

Rest in peace, Don Pardo. 96 years is such a blessing!

My guess is that they had a copy of Primal Scream sitting around the studio and used it for everything...

This early Chicago Blackhawks sports special is a fascinating look into one of Chicago's favorite sports franchises before the advent of 24/7 cable sports networks and the Blackhawks own Blackhawks TV on the internet. This practice session is also the precusor to the morning practice skating sessions that is occasionally seen these days on Comcast SportsNet.

RIP Lauren Bacall, whose film Dark Passage was the only one (of the 4 she teamed up with Bogart) WGN ran during this series of programs in that span.

A few days ago, a YouTube poster put up an entire edition of the 6pm "Eyewitness News" on WABC Channel 7 in New York City (see here) from January 8th 1981. That newscast was significant if only for the sports report - which dealt with the retirement of by-then New York Ranger Phil Esposito (who, as a 'Hawk, was seen in this part) as an active player, and comments from his brother Tony in which he spoke briefly about the retirement of another 'Hawk from this clip, Stan Mikita. (Because Espo and Mikita had served in the 'Hawks at various points in the former's and all through the latter's career, this item was Chicago-related in a back-handed way.)


Comment posted in CBS Network - In The News - "Acid Rain" (1983) by LaPrincess on Thursday, August 7th, 2014 at 10:46pm CT

I remember watching it often in between cartoons. I remember for example the one that was about the engagement of Prince Charles and Princess Diana (then Lady Diana)because it was something my paternal British grandmother always mentioned. I liked these news segments and I didn't feel talked down to. I was a smart child and hated anything that felt like it.


Comment posted in CBS Network - In The News - "Acid Rain" (1983) by HUdson 3-2700 on Wednesday, August 6th, 2014 at 7:51pm CT

"In The News" didn't talk down to the kids. The features were almost what you got on the network news. They were well-done and concise, and the tone was that of someone explaining the news stories that the kids had heard while they were watching the news with their parents, something parents and kids used to do together.

Why does he keep touching the paper?
