That's Linn Burton for Certain on the Aronson commercial.

In the 1950's The Cisco Kid was sponsored by local bread companies (Weber's Bread on the West Coast, Butternut Bread in the Midwest including Chicago, etc.)

I smile every time I see the WGN ID and hear "The Last Farwell"

- The fuzzy picture makes it more authentic. My brothers and I would watch these shows after Mass on Sunday while my folks were cooking brunch.

- The guy doing the Eagle commercial sounds like the guy that did the Jewel commercials.

- I used to live near the Aronson's on 46th and Ashland. Never went shopping there...

I'm surpised Cisco Kid was filmed in color back in 1956.

Apparently, no-one knew "The Cisco Kid" was filmed in color after the mid-1950's until 1966 or so when local TV stations reacquired film prints of the show, with the color episodes being offered in color for the first time. This was most certainly the case with the second half of the run of the George Reeves "Adventures of Superman" which was in color, and wasn't seen as such until after 1966.

I believe The Cisco Kid was the first television show to be filmed in color. That show was definitely ahead of its time.

I remember watching the movie 'The Bermuda Triangle' at the Marquette Theater on 63rd Street near Kedzie Avenue. I thought it was an interesting film.

Bonded meats?

OMG Hudson me too...! When I saw this clip, it totally took me back to Sundays when I *used* to go to mass.

I've FINALLY found out the name of the Theme for AM Chicago, it called "Allegory" by Passport!

The name of the song that played is "Kitchen Dance" by Dave Grusin!

The opening theme does kinda sound like a take-off of the Tar Sequence score. This was, in fact, an uptempo version of Frank Denning's "Tabloid," which originated from NBC's in-house music library.

I got this for either my birthday or Christmas one year.

A few years ago I bought a DVD of all the Kenner Star Wars commercials. One thing that really jumps out as you watch all of them back to back is the music that plays in the background. They tried to make it sound like Star Wars music but apparently didn't want to pay the rights. The music in the Creature Cantina ad is the best for shear cheesiness.

Thanks for the info once again, Nancy. :-) Keep looking; I hope you can ID the Mandy version some day.

Wow, it's been a while.

This version of "In the Midnight Hour" is by Richard Alden. The opening track is Mike Oldfield's "Taurus 1." I've watched this clip so many times that it's weird hearing these tracks in their entirety.

However, no idea still who did the cringeworthy "Mandy" cover. I guess even Shazam has its pride. :')

Re: Nasty McEvil (boy, is that fun to say) - it's John Stephenson, evidently channeling Conried.

Interesting that they used a Tweety Bird stuffed animal at the beginning of this ad instead of a generic, non copyrighted plush toy.
