1500 Butterfield is now a Portillo's.

Slight airdate correction. FuzzyMemories.TV regrets the error. :-)

Wow, $1.00 worth of food? Even back then, that was kinda lame.

Wow, I think I originally watched this ad back when the MBC was in the Cultural Center and you could watch stuff in the Archieves.

$1 in 1976 would be $3.87 today.

So, unless they were basically really cheap fast food kids meals, that might not have even paid for the whole kids meal, although maybe they had specials for the kids (bunch of places around here do free kids meals with 2 adult entrees even now).

Maybe this guy is him? Looks like his film production work started in 1976 and maybe this commercial demo got him the job!

At the end of the Shell spot, that looks like the Screen Gems residential street. And of course that's Paul Frees as the Pillsbury Doughboy.

Upgraded the video file on this one. I agree - not Kevin Kline. Look at his face 11 seconds to 14 seconds in.
