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?

Rick: I'm not able to update this post. Are you able to change my website link to the current address of www.waltdatedworld.com ? I am having trouble with traffic still showing in Google from my old site address (we are working on redirects but it's really a messed up, long story) and this was one thing that showed up. Thanks!

Voiceover by Dave Martin, who was WCFL's program director at the time. He later held the same job at WCLR, and voiced this commercial, too.
