Horrible fashions in the 80's.

Horrible?! Hey, the 80s had some super rad fashions back then.

We thought we looked good...

I remember the Zayre in Richton Park well as my Mom would often shop there and I'd tag along and play the "Donkey Kong" machine. Right next door was the old A&P and right across the street was Eagle. All three are gone now and I'm wondering if they ever got around to filling those vacancies. They sat empty for years

Galaga, I remember that Zayre's too! I haven't driven by in a few months but I think it's something else now.

Looks like Ally Sheedy in the beginning, but I believe she would have been much younger than that in 1980.

You know Stevie, you might just be right. I missed the possible resemblance the first time I watched this commercial. All Sheedy was born in June of 1962 making her 18 when this came out. The woman in this commercial could easily be 18. Maybe it's her and you're the first to notice! ;-D

Nah, it's not her. Look at her teeth close-up when she smiles. Also, her voice is different.

Yeah. You're right Fuzzy. She's a dead ringer though.

I always wanted to go to Zayre back then because I LOVED their commercials, but my folks just wouldn't shop there. Why I never knew...

Maybe your parents felt about Zayre what people like my girlfriend's father feel about Wal Mart. They think of them as the devil and stay far away.

I remember the Zayre store in Waukegan where I grew up. They even had a gas station in the parking lot. Used to go there and buy baseball cards. Bought my mom a Wham! album from there too!

Buying baseball cards...now there is nostalgia right there...I know you can still find them but they arent as readily available as they used to be....I remember going to the store and buying baseball cards and I used to be obsessed with those Books that came with stickers and you had to put the stickers on the right page lol

I haven't seen a Zayre in 25 years at least. The Zayre in my hometown is now a Menard's.
Comment posted by OldTVNut on Monday, June 6th 2011 at 2:37pm.

I went to the Zayre at 3938 S. Harlem Avenue in Lyons a ton when I was a kid. How many days I spent in that toy aisle I'll never know!

According to Wikipedia, it sold all the stores in October 1988 to Ames. So it was an Ames store for a few years, then in the early-mid 90s, it became Phar-Mor for a bit. I think that location was then a gym for a while. Today, it's a Marshalls clothing store.

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?

@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!"

Felipe Rose (the Indian) scarily resembles the Twi'lek dancer from Return of the Jedi who's dumped into the Rancor pit by Jabba, the way he's moving around on stage with the headdress swinging behind him.

Matt Snell is famous for having scored the only Super Bowl touchdown in NY Jets history, in their 16-7 win over the Colts in 1968.

Wow, that looks...gross. No wonder it didn't stay on the market for very long.

I'm almost positive that's Eddie Deezen as the groom; his face is a giveaway but I couldn't find any pictures of him with that hair. This would've been a year after he appeared in Grease.
