Man this is great! I always loved those WFLD Community Calendar spots becasue of that music! It's great to find out after all these years just what that music is!

I remember this. This was one of the many clips uploaded under the old name at YouTube 3 years ago.

I never get tired of that Krazy Glue ad!

Exactly how many of those ad breaks ran in that 30-minute slot? Considering a Stooge short typically lasts 15-18 minutes, there's certainly got to be a lot of time to sell wares...

I remember WFLD would air one short with commercials, and fill out the half hour with a snippet of a short billed as "Stooge Shorts."

Although I personally like the current freecreditreport.com spots better, which are kind of in the same vein as the old Krazy Glue spot, that Krazy Glue ad back in 79' was clever.

WOW, Blago stole that guy's hair!

I believe that the guy with the microphone in the commercial for the Richard Pryor album is John Lawlor, who played Mr. Bradley on the first season of the Facts of Life.

Thanks to "hardlines4" on YouTube, we now know the name and composer of the piece of music used as the theme to Movie Greats heard here!

It is the theme from the 1965 movie "36 Hours" - "A Heart Must Learn to Cry" and it is performed here by Marty Gold and his Orchestra.

Here's a link to download the full track:

PVX: I was a master control operator in the 1990s and 2000s, and the ISCI codes were 4 letters and 4 numbers. An Ad Council public service announcement started with the letter C and three letters for the campaign, the digits would start with the year the spot was created, the revision or version number, and the last 2 digits being the length of the ad, so a 30 second Smokey the Bear Forest Fire Prevention PSA from 1999 would have been CNFF-9130.

Same lady that went on to play on the show Family Ties!

Is that cottage cheese on the plate, or some kind of tartar sauce?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5-x-9LciYA is basically the same ad about 13 years earlier sans the baby.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar's first commercial is for DAS Smurf Modelling Clay. He would have been 8 years old here.
