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?

"(please excuse the ghosty picture quality and buzzy audio)"

Given that this historical pre-show interview was preceded by, of all things, the half-forgotten cartoon series "Funky Phantom" (speaking of ghosts and buzzes), a rather apropos comparison, no? ;-)

I sure miss Goldblatt's, because that's where I bought the Sabado Gigante box game for $25 back in '91 and played Gondomania four years earlier.

Bravo to the "genius" who decided to run that particular Pacer commercial right after that particular scene.

At 0:24, it's so obvious he's just holding the drumstick in front of his mouth and making a chewing motion. It's probably a piece of molded plastic anyway...


Comment posted in WMAQ Channel 5 - The NBC News Midnight Special Report - "Death of Rockefeller" (1979) by T.K. on Friday, July 11th, 2014 at 9:36pm CT

Given the details that would later emerge surrounding the cause of Mr. Rockefeller's death, it is fitting that we join "Macho Man" in progress.

"Every kind of body, always in demand!" When you're 70, sometimes it's hard keeping up with, uh, demands...


Comment posted in WXRT 93 FM - "Give My Friend Terri A Listen" (Commercial, 1984) by Szake on Thursday, July 10th, 2014 at 8:25pm CT

Terri Hemmert is still at WXRT but not on her midday show due to knee replacement surgery for her right knee and physical therapy. Breakfast With The Beatles is temporarily a one hour show Sundays at 9 AM for awhile except for Ringo's two hour birthday special July 6th. She also teaches at Columbia College Chicago and volunteers for a number of causes.

Terri Hemmert... God love her, she's been with XRT almost since the beginning.

This guy is still around!

How can a movie made for television be edited for television?
