Three words: riboflavin, riboflavin, riboflavin!

Is the voice over done by Allen Swift?

Hmmmm so they made a cereal that was EXACTLY like their other cereal Kix? Who was the marketing genius behind this

It was sweeter than Kix and had a golden box for the maple flavor and this green one for the fruity Trix-tasting kind.

This was way before they came out with Honey Kix and Berry Berry Kix, so I guess they were experimenting with the marketing. Soon after this they realized that cereals marketed as healthy actually had to be healthy and not brown Trix in a box with kids exercising on it.

The company that offered (for sale, of course) this color test pattern (and laid out the type including the "Broadcasting From Sears Tower" and "Circular Polarization" notices) was a Clifton, NJ firm called Tele-Measurements, Inc., which is still around. In 1977 adverts the company put out in magazines such as Broadcast Engineering and BM/E (Broadcast Management/Engineering), their designation for this type pattern was TM-501, as part of their "Tele-Pat" line. A much earlier version of this pattern was used in Chicago by WFLD Channel 32 in its early years on the air (from its 1966 debut into the early '70's, apparently giving way to electronic color bars around the onset of Kaiser's 1973-77 sojourn).

Comment posted in WBBM Channel 2 - Station Sign-On, SSB & Meditation (1979) by W.B. on Thursday, November 26th, 2015 at 5:27am CT

No doubt when the tape of Fr. Hitpas' sermonette got around to airing on NYC sister station WCBS Channel 2's "Give Us This Day" at sign-on or sign-off, the voiceover (either Pat Connell or Norm Stevens or Roger Forster or whomever) would have announced at the end that it "was presented in cooperation with the Communications Office of the Archdiocese of New York." And if at sign-on, would have been followed by first the station ID, then a 20-or-so-minute slides-only newscast read by the said announcer.

Isn't there a longer, minute version of this commercial? If I remember, they also had a segment where Larry from Perfect Strangers, "Boz Knows Comedy?" and you see Cooky trying to hit Bozo with a pie and as usual, it backfires. I swear I saw it on here. I checked YouTube and there's no such commercial on there.

That "auto-iris" that we see throughout this showing of the picture, was an unfortunate attribute of RCA TK-27 chains, which WFLD had in those days.

Thanks for finding this, Fuzzy. It brought me right back to childhood and simpler days!

I think that connotation of "Mechanically Reproduced" as 'Fuzzy' mentioned, may explain why on NYC stations the term generally used was "pre-recorded" (or, by the later '70's, just "recorded").

Around Why-Tee (the phonetic spelling for the initials of YouTube), you have quite a few editorials (and even some editorial feedbacks) from sister station WPIX Channel 11 in New York City, as delivered by Richard N. Hughes who was perhaps the most famous of the editorialists in NYC. Pray tell, who amongst the Chicago TV stations' editorialists would have been better known "at the time"? I'm banking on WMAQ's Dillon Smith . . .

NYC sister station WPIX Channel 11's "Portions..." wording was "Portions Of The Preceding Program Were Pre-Recorded." The "pre-recorded" terminology was used by NYC stations almost uniformly, as if they believed New Yorkers wouldn't understand what "mechanically reproduced" meant.

Especially in cartoons produced by Hanna-Barbera.

Only in cartoons can you have living rooms and backyards that are three miles long with trees, paintings on walls that look exactly the same!
