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 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.

I'm WAY too young to remember Old Chicago, but from looking at these old commercials, it looks like it was an indoor type of amusement park, kind of like what Camp Snoopy or I think it's Nickelodeon Land at Mall of America. Am I right?
@Brian1978 - Well, they did air the same commercial that day (almost - see below) but the one posted here did come from an entirely new and undiscovered Bozo's Circus episode that I found, which aired on Wednesday, July 11th 1979.
By the way, the version of this ad that did air during Chicagofest interestingly has a slightly different opening title card - all in white versus the oscillating multi-color seen here. Take a look.
This was the second commercial during the first break of the special, "Bozo at Chicagofest" taking place on August 3rd, 1979. I will always think of it being after the commercial for Dispensa's Kiddie Kingdom.
