There was another ad where you see him IN the tank at Shedd Aquarium. I remember we went there when that commercial was still popular and when there was a caretaker in the tank my dad said, "Hey, it's Larry Lujack!" and a buncha kids standing there believed him.

I can tell you the van is no more! Comment posted by Menutia on Wednesday, March 18th 2009 at 9:23pm.
I used to listen to Animal Stories religiously as a kid. I loved the humor and the back and forth banter of Uncle Lar and Little "Snotnose" Tommy. Good times! Comment posted by Psyberwolf on Tuesday, August 11th 2009 at 1:24am.
I had an Animal Stories album when I was a kid. I listened to the one about the headless chicken over and over again. Comment posted by dayna on Friday, August 21st 2009 at 8:19am.
I remember this commercial. Wasn't this shown in 1982 or 1983 too? Comment posted by onehotmomma66 on Wednesday, February 17th 2010 at 9:40pm.

GHilbrich - I'll bet if we told your nine year old self, right after you were done taping, how long this recording would live on, and how many people would see it, your little head would have exploded. ;-)
Szake - You're right, of course. This is just a very early DVD transfer done on a machine with audio only plugged into one channel. I'll fix it eventually. :-) (also, I know those recent clips are one channel audio - still learning how to fix that in Premiere)
GHilbrich: When I was younger, I prided myself on how I could trim commercial breaks from tapes. I wish I let them run longer. The reason I left the comment about the one channel of audio, is many of our recordings are mono, and we can just duplicate the same audio track on both left and right so someone on headphones doesn't think they are going deaf in one ear.
