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!

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!

I had an Animal Stories album when I was a kid. I listened to the one about the headless chicken over and over again.

I remember this commercial. Wasn't this shown in 1982 or 1983 too?

Actually, I don't recall seeing this package on KABC. A few other markets that did use it though include stations in Philadelphia (WPVI-TV) and Baltimore (WJZ-TV). Some of you might also remember seeing the first 5 seconds of this clip as part of Entertainment Tonight's opening intro back in 1982.

I never, in my life, saw a Farrell's, let alone ever been in one (especially when I was in the age range cited in this ad). Were there any in the New York metro area?

He was also "Little Earl" on "What's Happening?" and had a role in the Academy Awards sweeping "Meatballs Part 2".

Some of the "Old Time Movie" footage is from the 1926 Billy Bevan comedy HOBOKEN TO HOLLYWOOD...the clip also features Three Stooges nemesis Vernon Dent.

We had several Farrell's here in the Houston area; my sister worked at one near NASA. Nonstop noise and fun for everyone - she loved every minute of it!

Rick: The photos on http://www.boonsborovillage.com/ look like the place was built in the late 1960s, early 1970s. According to apartments.com, it was built in 1970.

Szake - Yes, but were those apartment buildings there 39 years ago? That's long ago enough that you have to at least ask the question. :-)

4715 Boonsboro Road is home to Boonsboro Village Apartments. There are 70 units in the 5 building complex, so maybe Jeff Taylor thinks that is a vague enough address to broadcast on TV... like if a Chicago reporter did that and said they live at 222 East Pearson, a building downtown with 709 condominiums in it.
