Here's the ending of the Family Classics presentation of Moby Dick on WGN Channel 9. Includes:

The ending moments of "Moby Dick"

Commercial: Kellogg's Frosted Flakes ("They're G-R-R-REAT!") with free M&M's Snack Pack

Commercial: Plywood Minnesota - "Extra Extra Sale"

Commercial: Stove Top Stuffing (guy with glasses resembles Rick Moranis)

Announcement of preview of next week's movie, "Treasure Island" (1934) starring Wallace Beery as Long John Silver and Jackie Cooper as Jim Hawkins (voiceover by Floyd Brown)

Commercial: Folger's Crystals (at the "world-famous" Perino's Restaurant in Los Angeles)

Commercial: WJMK "Magic 104" FM - "The Greatest Hits of All Time, All the Time" (This exact same ad campaign, with the scrapbook motif and particular songs, was used for WCBS-FM 101 in New York, in that same period)

Commercial: Empire Carpets

Preview of scenes from "Treasure Island" (5:22 - 8:38 in clip)

"Family Classics" ending title and theme ("Moviescope" by Dennis Berry, originally released on the Berry/Conroy label), with voiceover (Floyd Brown) advising, "Don't miss MGM's film adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's 'Treasure Island,' next week's 'Family Classics' presentation. Please join us."

Note: Floyd Brown announced the movie since Frazier Thomas had died earlier that month on April 3rd. This was during a transitional period before Roy Leonard took over hosting duties for this show on October 13th 1985, beginning with the airing of "For the Love of Benji".

The Family Classics theme song was called "Moviescope" and was a piece of library music composed by Dennis Berry. It was originally released on the Berry/Conroy label.

Just wasn't the same after Frazier Thomas passed.

This aired on local Chicago TV on Sunday, April 21st 1985.

Was that pilot they're talking to high? What was the matter with him?

LMBO @FuzziyMemories and BabyBear on your comments!!

It used a red/white/blue motif. That wouldn't do today, too offensive. Now it would be pink, cream and aqua, with a vegan represented just so no one feels left out.

I miss those big cans of Hi-C Citrus Cooler - it was the perfect drink to go with brown sugar cinnamon Pop Tarts.

Where do you guys think you're going? Have some beer before you go out driving on those dark, icy roads!

Why, I like music. Especially "good ones." I think I'll give this musical radio station a try.
