Lois Griffin voiceover?

Piggy-backing off of MST's statement:

Now we know where Alex Borstein got the voice for Trisha Takanawa, Asian reporter.

No, the voiceover in the commercial might be Eartha Kitt.

Funny, I thought it would've been Tammy Grimes.

The voiceover IS Eartha Kitt. Close your eyes and think of the black Catwoman in the Batman TV show.

That would be pretty amazing if it really was her. I have no other guesses. So, I suppose we'll never know for sure... (crosses arms, waits for answer to magically appear)

This was a great album, but I forgot they did a commercial for it. Now that I think of it, commercials promoting albums, like this one, were big at one time. Got any more?

The album was released in September 1977. My 13th birthday, the month we moved into the house I am still living at, and they month I started Grade 8, and then this album! Peg was one of my favorite songs!

It appears that this is Eartha Kitt

Purrrrrrrrrrr-fect! :D

Today, she does the voice of Yzma/Amzy on Disney's Emperor's New School.

I believe this album had one of my favorite songs: Black Cow.

ABC Records was taken over by MCA Records in 1979. In 2003, MCA Records was absorbed in to Geffen Records. Geffen now has the entire ABC and MCA Records catalog. One of the best LP's by Steely Dan. You might find a lot of these in thrift stores.

Somehow, I always knew back in my mind that CF aired well after 1976. Now, if someone has recordings of the short-lived live host airings of CF, that would be a 24 karat platinum find! But, from what I understand, that would be as likely as finding a recording of the first ever Tonight Show With Johnny Carson. With this clip, however, I would have to say that in all of the years of visiting vintage TV sites, you have the best research team ever! A job well done would not even begin to cover it! Epic!

Awesome!


Comment posted in Kellogg's Sugar Corn Pops (Commercial, 1979) by HUdson 3-2700 on Tuesday, October 28th, 2014 at 1:58pm CT

In the '60's they were just "Sugar Pops." That was back in the day when the Hanna-Barbera cartoons were on the box. The only one I remember, unfortunately, is Quick Draw McGraw on the box of Sugar Smacks, now called Honey Smacks, though I haven't seen them in a while. They were 56% sugar...

Whoa, great find! I didn't even know that Creature Features aired beyond 1976.

I recently saw the Gary Coleman exhibit at the Museum of Broadcast Communications. Sort of sad if you think about it. Gary seemed to be a bright, happy kid with a lot of charisma that got swallowed up and spit out by Hollywood.

Sorry to make you go through any trouble. That news clip actually precedes the Nite-Owl clip on the tape. I just tried to edit it out when posting this clip. One frame must have slipped through. :-)

That's WLS-TV. (from left) Jay Levine, Diane Allen, Jay Berry.

Anyone know what station this was? I had to do something very clever to make that frame useable.
