OMG! Those are the Charlie Angel's dolls I mentioned in the other Bozo video! How weird. I had those and also got Kris (Cheryl Ladd) when they made one of her (her doll was in a green jumpsuit). I even have a photo of me getting the dolls that Christmas. I don't think they made dolls of the later Angels though.

That Burger King looks better than the current creepy one.

I remember those commercials for Charlie's Angels toys. You know when TV show is successful when toys and other products of that show are being produced and sold.

I've been looking for that Marching Mickey ad for years!!! Thanks for finding!

You said it the new 1 is creepy.

Both Burger Kings look creepy. Live or plastic. The Live guy even LOOKS plastic.

As for the question of which Gold was in that Burger King ad: Very likely Missy Gold, who was blonde. Future "Growing Pains" co-star Tracey Gold had dark hair. Incidentally, they're sisters, born one year apart. Unless they were both in this ad.

LMAO! What were they smoking when they thought of that Burger King commercial?

It was Missy Gold in the Burger King ad. Funny because I knew that the second I saw her. She wouldn't be known to a national audience until Benson's debut in 1979.

They made the plastic Burger King look like this one, I think.

I know I went to the McDade's in Palatine but can anyone remember where it actually was located?

ID'ed the woman in the bumper promo at the beginning - Karen Kalish.

The guy at 1:27 looks as if he is trying to give The Most Interesting Man in the World a run for his money.


Comment posted in Mr. Coffee with Joe DiMaggio - "The Delicious Way to Say Merry Christmas" (Commercial, 1977) by T.K. on Thursday, December 18th, 2014 at 11:25am CT

I remember hearing somewhere that, after years of doing these commercials, DiMaggio was disenchanted by young people who wanted his autograph because he was "Mr. Coffee" and had no idea about his baseball career.

Something seems misleading here... is it 37 cents for one 5x7 print, with a much greater sitting fee that we're not told about?

Or is this all to get Cheapskate Mom to come in for a big sales pitch in hopes that she'll put away her change purse and actually buy the deluxe package of 75 prints, with a pose in front of each background. With 5x7, 8x10, 3x5, 36x24x36... wait, maybe not that last one!

And if these are "portraits for Christmas," why are none of the backdrops holiday-themed?! I guess they bring those out for Easter...

That Colorburst 250 Instant Camera is as big as the kid's head using it.

Like the marching soldiers!

Corrected - thanks!

Typo alert: It says "Roger Cole - Capitol Records" in the description but it's actually "David Cole".


Comment posted in ON TV - The Who Rocks America Confirmation Test (1982) by Szake on Wednesday, December 17th, 2014 at 12:13pm CT

On December 17, 1982, At Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, the Who played the "last concert of our farewell tour," which was shown around North America on pay-per-view satellite-cable TV to closed-circuit arena outlets.
