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?

http://factually.gizmodo.com/the-first-audiobooks-were-invented-for-blind-americans-1620940467 It seems like two librarians talking about books on tape and books on record albums with adaptive devices such as a record turntable with a pause button and a pitch or speed control on the audio cassette tape player.

Correction: Al was able to confirm that this was a filmed insert for Bob Luce Wrestling, not Al Lerner Sports as was previously listed.

Also, I updated the video title to make it more clear that this is a report, and not actual footage of the match. :-)

I was wondering exactly what telecine equipment was used to make this transfer. Because certainly it appears a bit better than it would have "back then" via WGN's film chain setup which at that point would have included RCA TK-27's.

GHilbrich - Good observations. To answer your question, we did the transfer ourselves, direct from the original film reel. Everything you see, including the dissolve between the ID and the GG opening, was as it appears on the reel.

I agree with your reasoning. Perhaps we'd have a better idea where this came from if we can get any more information out of the original seller on Ebay. For example, I'd like to know how long this reel was in his possession, and where he got it from (was it an estate sale / private collection, or something else?)

I do not believe that this was done for any other reason than someone taking home a souvenir of sorts. I think what you have here is one of (and maybe now the only) original, station used 16mm reels with the WGN Color Presentation and Garfield Goose intro that would have run any given morning before moving into the video feed with Frazier. Perhaps someone who worked at WGN got a hold of the materials here when the station was unloading reels into a dumpster and adding one of the full 5 part Clutch serials for continuity.

This is just a guess, of course. But judging from the flow of the 16mm print, it's probably the best bet (the Clutch episodes are spliced pretty tightly together without any leader, countdowns or "Place Commercial Here" slugs).

Maybe the person responsible for getting this reel out of WGN is or will read this and chime in.

I have to ask, Fuzzy, did you add the dissolve between the Color Presentation and GG titles? Do you have the actual reel or was it transferred and sent to you this way?

SPOILER ALERT !!
No wrestling is shown. Booooo !!!!


Comment posted in WSNS Channel 44 - Bob Luce Wrestling - "Report on Verne Gagne Loss" (1974) by ArmitageNLowell on Sunday, April 17th, 2016 at 4:22pm CT

From what I have read in various message boards, including THE source for wrestling's past, kayfabememories.com , this sounded like a non-taped/broadcast house show to promote the big card at Comiskey Park in September; Robinson actually DID NOT win the title because Gagne's foot was on the rope when he was pinned. So, the belt was held up until the September card at Comiskey Park.

(Edited to correct date of the Amphitheater card.)

*SPOILER*
Gagne defeated Robinson via count-out.

Or, could this have been from Bob Luce Wrestling?


Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - Garfield Goose and Friends - "Clutch Cargo" (1971?) by Szake on Thursday, April 14th, 2016 at 8:49pm CT

I'm thinking it was the film roll in for the show. I wonder if the original 16mm film had a splice between the Garfield Goose intro and the Clutch Cargo cartoons. If so... it may have been the telecine film run during the show. There is also a dissolve between the WGN Color intro and the show open. Film dissolves needed to be done optically, so I expected the one to end in black and the next to start from black.
