So, SelecTV was seen in other markets, hmm? In L.A., this subscription TV service was carried over KWHY Channel 22 during the PM hours and weekends. Oddly enough, KWHY is currently part of the NBC/Telemundo duopoly with former ON TV affiliate KVEA Channel 52. Small world, huh? Comment posted by RocketBoy on Sunday, May 30th 2010 at 6:19am.
And of course, ON TV was shown in Chicago on . . . WSNS Channel 44. Comment posted by W.B. on Sunday, May 30th 2010 at 3:03pm.

I'm so glad this footage has turned up--I remembered seeing Creature Features in the late '70s and early '80s, but every historical reference I could find on the Interwebs told me that it ended in May 1976, so I assumed my memory was just wrong...until now! I also remember the simple opening with the blue slide. I must have been up late during summer vacation to see it, and I don't know which movie I saw (Kronos, maybe, since I remember seeing that on CF, though it only aired once in the "classic" era...when I was 9), but I remember being shocked (and thrilled!) to see it still on the air. I still have dreams about the show, too--usually that somebody has at least briefly revived it and I've stumbled across it on cable. (You listening Antenna TV? Cozi? This?)
These puppets were later used on a show called I.N.K. -- Interesting News for Kids. I thought it was on WMAQ, but maybe I'm wrong on that. The mic was named Mike Rafone, (get it?), and the show also featured a character who was a spider that looked like a black glove with a huge black pin cushion sewn onto the top of it. This is the ONLY reference I've seen to the show in years.
