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).

Wonder what cameras were used by 'FLD then - Ikegamis? Philips'?

The one that was on Kingery Road/IL Route 83 is now Binney's and is quite a place

This has been credited as one of the longest running ads ever in American Television History. I remember seeing it so many times that the orchestral harp and bust [whom I believe is Beethoven] became well-remembered images. It also was where I first heard of Tchaikovsky's and Grieg's names [and I confess that I mis-remembered the 2nd featured work as 'Full Moon & Eight Empty Arms', that's a love song for a octopus ;) ]

I thought there was another Chicago TV late movie show that also used "Take Five" as well. Often I think of the Late Movie and Chicago jazz clubs when I here "Take Five" [although it was recorded in NYC]

What ever happened to the fuzzy-memories version of this ad with the gunfire at the end?

I had wanted one of these computers since I had the Colecovision. After all the huge problems the ADAM had, I am glad I never did.

I remember seeing this ad several times just before I turned 5 [I was in Homewood IL at the time]. This was a surprise seeing this ad again!

David H: If you look at an ad from the same campaign a year earlier http://www.fuzzymemories.tv/index.php?c=1467 , the numbers do NOT start with 555, but 888, 8 and 7.

Interesting that when you see the closeups of the phone and the hands pressing the buttons, they always start with 555- , the default phone number choice used for all phone numbers on TV shows from this era.

Yes, indeed - it's from a Umatic. :-)
