WCIU Channel 26 - Mulqueen's Kiddie A-Go-Go (Part 1, 1969)

Presenting - the first result of your generous donations! The completed "remastered" version (in three parts) direct from 2" Quad Videotape!

Here's the opening segment from an episode of Mulqueen's Kiddie a-Go-Go on WCIU Channel 26. Includes:

The kids dance to the Kiddie-A-Go-Go theme song.

Pandora talks to the duck character "Spike" about the upcoming Chapter 6 of the serial Jungle Queen.

The kids dance to "I've Been Hurt" by Bill Deal and the Rhondels.

Commercial: Henry's Restaurants featuring "Captain Henry" and a contest with 8829 winners - "Head For Henry's" - in Chicago, Joliet, Wheeling, Des Plaines, Waukegan - Highland, Indiana - Kenosha, Wisconsin - and Benton Harbor, Michigan. (ending voiceover by Elaine Mulqueen) ("Captain Henry" is played by Dick Orkin (of his 60s radio series "Chickenman" fame) - who also worked with Rich Koz!)

Starring Elaine Mulqueen as Pandora. Directed by Drew Leach.

Former WCIU staffer Aubrey Mumpower says, "Mike May the TD [Technical Director] on duty would do those duck voices. [i.e., Spike] It was really funny when he'd use them on headset."

Note: this is presented as originally broadcast, in Black & White.

What a simpler time, eh? :-)

I think something like this would be akin to Wonderama produced for the Metromedia stations, including Channel 5 in NYC.

But this is one of a kind for ANY MARKET!

Were Henry's restaurants still aroundin 1972? Also--does anyone remember what color their circle logo was?

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

The reaction of how Moe and Curly turned around to look at the wall paper is still funny as heck to me!! LOL!!!!

Additional note: CHCH in Hamilton began rerunning the series as of January 21, 2019, with special guest appearances by the Diff'rent Strokes main cast in that first episode (originally aired August 24, 1979 on NBC), and a larger cast than what we'd be accustomed to in later seasons as the girls grew up over the years.


Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - G.I. Joe (Commercial Break #2, 1987) by VintageCanada on Monday, January 21st, 2019 at 6:24pm CT

George Clooney appeared in a number of Season 7 episodes of The Facts of Life starting with S7E2, which was the episode WGN ran on this particular day.

The Facts of Life information: Season 7 Episode 2: "Into the Frying Pan", originally aired on NBC on September 21, 1985, and the first to have George Clooney in the opening credits, and the second of only three episodes in this particular season to have Edna's Edibles as the opening backdrop. The next opening backdrop to be used (Over Our Heads) debuted two episodes later (S7E4) and would last right to the two-part series finale in 1988.

I see Emmanuel Lewis (Webster) in the last take.

That video was from yesterday. They got the title and video mixed up. In 1959 Ron was a child then, probably not an actor yet.

The voiceover sounds like George Fenneman.
