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?

Dick Orkin was Chickenman back in the 1960's! He was the greatest! And looking at his page on Wikipedia, this site has one of his Henry's commercials.... http://fuzzymemories.tv/#videoclip-3193 I'm surprised I didn't catch it last year...

Just got one Sarah Miles film in the books. It isn't Blow-Up yet, but I still have the DVD. (The film I did complete tonight features brief appearances by James Stewart.)

We had both Just Pants and Just Jeans at one time. Talk about confusing...

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.)
