WFLD Channel 32 - The Addams Family (Partial Break, 1971)

Here's a partial commercial break from The Addams Family on WFLD Channel 32. Includes:

Good 'N Fruity candy (partial commercial)

Cocoa Puffs (cut off?)

Not sure if the tape was stopped here or if the commercial was just cut-off

Lucky Charms with Rally Sport Racer (cut off at beginning)

Notice the color is on at the beginning, and then turns off. What could have caused this?

(Again, sorry the audio is kind of loud)

This aired on local Chicago TV in 1971.

I guess 1971-1972.

Video tape starts to break down after about ten years. And if the heads on the playback machine aren't aligned with the heads on the machine that recorded the tape, the tape may have tracking problems, the video can lose color or resolution, and the audio starts to sound muddy.

Also, seeing that the earth is a giant magnet...Well, we all know what happens to magnetic media when exposed to a magnet. Which makes these tapes treasures or, dare I say miracles!

Nice rare early 1970's Good 'n Fruity jingle ("Rainbows of flavor") which doesn't match up to Good 'n Plenty's Choo Choo Charlie commercials.

Daaaaaaaaannnnnngggggg! 35+ years and I STILL know all of the lyrics to the "Good n' Fruity" Rainbow jingle. I was singing along just now - the first time I've seen it in that long.

Yahooooo, I'm cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs! LOL!

I was surprised that the cuckoo was the mascot for Cocoa Puffs this early on. I had thought he was a late-70s idea. But I guess he was there from the beginning. How old is Cocoa Puffs cereal, by the way?

Ringthane, I have come back from the lab with some answers for you! Cocoa Puffs have been around since 1958, which means they turn 50 this year! Sonny, however, is four years younger - he started appearing on TV in 1962.

Sweet! Thanks for indulging me, madsix.

I know I've heard the music in the Rally Sport Racer spot somewhere before. It may be a piece of production music I have.

Good 'n Fruity - The cherry tastes good as the Fourth of July.

Did you know Carly Simon was the singer of the Good 'n Fruity Rainbow Band jingle?

I knew a girl in college who was named Jorie after Jorie Lueloff. She was sweet but not very bright, and a number of us took turns helping her get through a course, a task that became known as Jorie duty.

Shows you what happens when they pronounce an assailant's name, as they did here . . . but thanks for the background info of "what happened next." It's things like this that make this as much an historical reference guide as everything else.

I vividly remembered this incident the day it happened. It actually started Thursday afternoon April 3rd and concluded early Saturday morning April 5th with the hostage being released unharmed and the suspect being taken into custody. The suspect, whose name was actually John Pasch, Jr, shot and killed his landlord and then murdered Chicago Police Officer Richard Clark who was the first responder on the scene. The cops actually used bright spotlights on Pasch's house to wear him out on the second night of the drama to get him to finally surrender. Then Police Superintendent Fred Rice also encouraged him to give up and he did. Pasch was convicted of his crimes and was sentenced to death when Illinois still had the death penalty. However, Pasch would die of natural causes while in prison in September 1993.

Hands up if any of you remember (as I do) Buster's ads promoting his line of swimming pools for use in the home.

@VintageCanada - It goes about 6 minutes more or so before the tape ran out. I knew it had to be getting close to the next break, but sadly, it never made it.

How much more of the movie continued to run after the break until it got cut off?

Tragic what happened to Vic Morrow back in 1982. Was an army helicopter really necessary?

Ah, the days when top-flight films were run on local TV stations via lo-res 16mm prints. (And how the focus was on some stations, you'd think they had Super 8 prints.)

Ok, I've been singing the paper towel song all weekend and have had to fight off urges to dance around in my kitchen and unravel the towel roll. This commercial should have its own video by itself.

The woman in the Handi Wipes ad looks familiar. Very entertaining ad! I wonder how many kids pulled paper towels across the kitchen after seeing it?
