Looking over the list of NBC stars who appeared on The Family Christmas Party, I am guessing the mystery woman in the circle is Valerie Landsburg of Fame. Other possibilities: Erin Gray, Geri Jewell, Kaleena Kiff, Lori Singer. That is Charles Haid from Hill Street Blues.

Fuzzy: the voiceover is by Jerry Bishop, who was also the voice for the classic Disney Channel (before 1997).

The song playing at the end of "We've Got the Hits" is "Whenever I Call You 'Friend'" by Kenny Loggins, which was his first hit as a solo artist.

This video should definitely be recaptured, it's much lower quality than later videos on here.

Seeing the van in the high weeds with its door open makes me think that the driver is off burying someone...


Comment posted in Old Chicago - "Charlie Baffle" (Commercial, 1977) by Brian1978 on Monday, July 28th, 2014 at 9:52am CT

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?


Comment posted in Old Chicago - "Monsters of the Midway" (Commercial, 1979) by FuzzyMemories on Monday, July 28th, 2014 at 9:43am CT

@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.


Comment posted in Old Chicago - "Monsters of the Midway" (Commercial, 1979) by Brian1978 on Monday, July 28th, 2014 at 9:09am CT

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.

Wow, old post! Anyway, that's Steve Vinovich ("Mannequin") as the hapless father in the Aunt Jemima ad.


Comment posted in WFLD Channel 32 - Big Movie - "Waterloo Bridge" (On-Screen Station ID & Commercial Break, 1978) by Studio76Art on Saturday, July 26th, 2014 at 8:23pm CT

I like that several minutes of the film was shown, even if it was just for the onscreen ID. After watching, I felt as if I actually earned that commercial break. :')

"So whaddya got Johnson?"

"A brand new gum named for something your bathwater comes out of!...and wait until you see the commercial I came up with!"

What? No MGM Lion here?
