Here's the third and final segment from an episode of Mulqueen's Kiddie a-Go-Go on WCIU Channel 26. (unfortunately they stopped recording early, before the show ended) Includes:

The kids dance to "Back in Love Again" by The Buckinghams for "Moldy-Oldy Time".

Beginning of the "Animal Twisters" game - featuring "Mr. Hands" (Jack Mulqueen) (who sounds like the voice of Moople) before the tape ends.
:-(

Starring Elaine Mulqueen as Pandora. Directed by Drew Leach.

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

What a simpler time, eh? :-)

"Back In Love Again" (which I actually have - Columbia single #4-44533 from 1968 - thus its qualifying for "Moldy Oldy" status) was the first single put out by The Buckinghams after they split from producer James William Guercio who'd produced their big 1967 hits ("Don't You Care," "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," "Hey Baby (They're Playing Our Song)" and "Susan") and who later produced the big hits of Blood, Sweat & Tears and, more significantly, Chicago (the band, not the city ;) ). "Back in Love Again" was produced by Jimmy "Wiz" Wisner.

I believe "Mr. Hands" is Jack Mulqueen.

Is that him? Wow. I've spoken to him on the phone a number of times but didn't know what he looked like back then.

I love the Buckinghams. Met a couple of them many years ago which at the time was pretty cool. Hard to believe how far we've come when it comes to roller skating. I vaguely remember those types of roller skates, but by the time the mid 70's happened, I had the fancy ones with the stopper that I could take to the roller rinks.

I swear Elaine/Pandora was sitting in the audience of a booksigning Jack Mulqueen did at my library but she didn't participate in the lecture. Fuzzy, when you talked to Jack, did he mention Elaine and why don't we hear more about her? I got the impression from his book that she got rather stressed out toward the end of the show...

Mr. Hands and Pandora are Mr & Mrs Mulqueen.

Love the two boys in Nehru jackets at 1:00!

Wonder if that song was what was floating in Joan Baez' head when recording her version of "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" whereby how she sings one of the lines, sounds like "There goes the Robert E. Lee."

Funny . . . they didn't look all that much like Donny & Marie in that storyboard . . .

"Waiting for the Robert E. Lee" shows up in a lot of stuff from this era, including an episode of Laverne & Shirley (in one of the Shotz Talent Show episodes) and in Disney's Bicentenial "America on Parade" in their theme parks.

Loved seeing the old fountain in the Woodfield ad. The water formed a waterfall and there were fish tanks below it. Now there's a mini escalator there and a Comcast area. So boring.

That is of course supposed to be Donny and Marie in the Hawaiian Punch Story Board.

Rick: That jingle was referred to on the Bill Leff show you and I were on late night on WGN Radio back in December of 2012.

The song is public domain, and I heard it in one of those bouncing ball sing along cartoons, I recognized it as the District Furniture song. https://youtu.be/jLI3xzwAGDQ?t=4m4s

Nice Photoshop job of combing the intro and ending graphics into one thumbnail image.

Thanks, Kevin for the ID on the source of the jingle!

This jingle was based off of the song "Waiting For The Robert E. Lee." The furniture shot, but not the logo or banjo player looks like it could have been shot in the Ridgewood High School TV Studio, from the white cylorama curtain to the C stand light just in the frame on the left side of the screen. They had just rented a servo zoom controller to upgrade a manual crank zoom and were probably ancy to use it. There was also a locally produced Preparation H ad pretending to be at a race track shot on videotape with the same setup.

I saw the movie 'Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things'. Worst zombie movie ever.

I remember Patrick O'Neal in an episode of the 'Night Gallery' called 'Fear of Spiders'. He also did television shows like 'Alfred Hitchcock' and 'The Outer Limits'.

That Bingo head was from a commercial for the Muscular Dystrophy carnival kits featuring the Banana Splits.
