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.

Still looking to have the sound fixed in this video.

Channel 4 must have switched to using the Moog "Star-Spangled Banner" not long after this. That happens to be my personal favourite rendition of it.

I'm certainly pullin' for the Cubbies to take the Series, for sure. Someone mentioned the Red Sox - one of the Cubs' execs who helped bring the team to their current position, was in charge at the Red Sox when they assembled the players that took home quite a few World Championships over this century.

And New York's Channel 7, WABC, also tended to show badly worn color prints of old movies. One screening of "The Best of Everything" [1959] in the mid-'80's on their "Late Movie" (with Alan Parker's "Unlimited Love" as the theme) was especially yellowish.

As for the bad color on this film, one person on YouTube speculated it may've been due to this being an Eastman print, fading over time.

Can anyone say with certainty what kind of color slide WLS used for their 1974 test pattern (inaugurated the year they began transmitting from their circular polarized antenna atop the Sears [now Willis] Tower), based on the 1984 sign-on and the extreme fading and discoloration seen thereon?

And finally, can anyone envision in their head how the "swirling stars" would have fared with Walter Raim's "Big Show" theme as used for years on WABC's "4:30 Movie" and their other movie shows?

Our channel 7 in Detroit was also known for bad colour quality when they were showing old movies. I have a few movie recordings off of WXYZ from the early 80s, and "How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying" has particularly bad colour quality.

Comment posted in WTTW Channel 11 - Doctor Who - "The Max Headroom Pirating Incident" (1987) by Smctopia on Thursday, October 13th, 2016 at 8:17pm CT

I don't think this was asked elsewhere but since he first tried to hack in to WGN and the Channel 11 audio makes several WGN references, is it possible "Max" prerecorded this and wasn't broadcasting it live?

The woman in the AARP ad kind of sounds like Shirley Jones.

Would anyone out there know what kind of color system was used on that print of "The Guns of Navarone" for the color to go so bad? I know that the print would've been 16mm . . . and what was it about one of the RCA(?) film chains for the blacks on the circle 7 logo to be dark maroonish and the whites almost beigeish? And people thought that no two color cameras of the same model produced the same pictures?

Thanks for the compliments and info, everyone. Hopefully we can incorporate the info into the description at some point.
