Love that song! You should have a category of iconic phone number songs: this one, Empire Carpets, Lincoln Carpets, CET Television... (Interesting that many of them are carpet or carpet cleaning companies.)

Before this came along you had to have your furniture cleaned in a big cleaning plant?

Seriously, come on.

Great jingle though.

Seems strange now, but I can remember my mom sending the couch and chairs out.

There's that McLean Stevenson-type voice again!

A friend of mine had a portly Little League coach w/ the last name of Hudson and said all the guys used to sing: "Hudson weighs 2-700!"

I love how a lot of commercials from years ago used those basic slides- sometimes it would be an illustration of some sort, or one listing a products attributes and amazing price- or as with Boushelle, a great company logo, address and phone number. Very simple and direct, and those are the commercials that usually stand out in your memory.

I remember this commerical coming on Channel 9 during the Saturday afternoon movies.

Wonder what cameras were used by 'FLD then - Ikegamis? Philips'?

The one that was on Kingery Road/IL Route 83 is now Binney's and is quite a place

This has been credited as one of the longest running ads ever in American Television History. I remember seeing it so many times that the orchestral harp and bust [whom I believe is Beethoven] became well-remembered images. It also was where I first heard of Tchaikovsky's and Grieg's names [and I confess that I mis-remembered the 2nd featured work as 'Full Moon & Eight Empty Arms', that's a love song for a octopus ;) ]

I thought there was another Chicago TV late movie show that also used "Take Five" as well. Often I think of the Late Movie and Chicago jazz clubs when I here "Take Five" [although it was recorded in NYC]

What ever happened to the fuzzy-memories version of this ad with the gunfire at the end?

I had wanted one of these computers since I had the Colecovision. After all the huge problems the ADAM had, I am glad I never did.

I remember seeing this ad several times just before I turned 5 [I was in Homewood IL at the time]. This was a surprise seeing this ad again!

David H: If you look at an ad from the same campaign a year earlier http://www.fuzzymemories.tv/index.php?c=1467 , the numbers do NOT start with 555, but 888, 8 and 7.

Interesting that when you see the closeups of the phone and the hands pressing the buttons, they always start with 555- , the default phone number choice used for all phone numbers on TV shows from this era.

Yes, indeed - it's from a Umatic. :-)
