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!

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?

Thanks for the info once again, Nancy. :-) Keep looking; I hope you can ID the Mandy version some day.

Wow, it's been a while.

This version of "In the Midnight Hour" is by Richard Alden. The opening track is Mike Oldfield's "Taurus 1." I've watched this clip so many times that it's weird hearing these tracks in their entirety.

However, no idea still who did the cringeworthy "Mandy" cover. I guess even Shazam has its pride. :')

Re: Nasty McEvil (boy, is that fun to say) - it's John Stephenson, evidently channeling Conried.

Interesting that they used a Tweety Bird stuffed animal at the beginning of this ad instead of a generic, non copyrighted plush toy.

I was watching the show as a lad in about this timeframe, and I have zero memory of the sunburst around the clock. Memory is so fickle.

I miss Osco's.

The same news desk seen here in 1983 was used in 1987 for some test runs of Fox 32 News, as seen here: https://youtu.be/C-leT1buYYs?t=1m27s

I remember an article written about her shortly after her debut with the headline "Yu Sends Me," that also remarked on how attractive she was. Between her and Deborah Norville, channel 5 seemed to specialize in beautiful anchors.

VintageCanada: I think Fuzzy can confirm this, but I believe it was 2 60 minute 3/4" U-Matic tapes. I'm guessing the tape change took place during a commercial break and was done in under 2 minutes.
