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.

Yes, Gary was an avid model railroader. Other celebrities who enjoyed that pastime were Tom Synder, Frank Sinatra and Frazier Thomas!

Dth - Thanks, looks like an encoding error - I'll fix it. And thanks for the actress info.

The Great Conductor McDonald's commercial is only 1/2 way cut leading into the Crispy Wheats 'n Raisins commercial.

Also: In the Crispy Wheats 'n Raisins commercial, the actress playing the Dorothy character is Geri Rechisi, who was best known for playing the replacement Jan Brady (replacing Eve Plumb) on the 1977 "The Brady Bunch Hour" variety show.

Very cool find.

As "Bob Hope" used to say whenever he was called on the Johnny B Radio Showgram....

"Isn't that sumpthin?"

Happy Halloween to you too and today is this site's 7th anniversary.

Somehow, I always knew back in my mind that CF aired well after 1976. Now, if someone has recordings of the short-lived live host airings of CF, that would be a 24 karat platinum find! But, from what I understand, that would be as likely as finding a recording of the first ever Tonight Show With Johnny Carson. With this clip, however, I would have to say that in all of the years of visiting vintage TV sites, you have the best research team ever! A job well done would not even begin to cover it! Epic!

Awesome!


Comment posted in Kellogg's Sugar Corn Pops (Commercial, 1979) by HUdson 3-2700 on Tuesday, October 28th, 2014 at 1:58pm CT

In the '60's they were just "Sugar Pops." That was back in the day when the Hanna-Barbera cartoons were on the box. The only one I remember, unfortunately, is Quick Draw McGraw on the box of Sugar Smacks, now called Honey Smacks, though I haven't seen them in a while. They were 56% sugar...

Whoa, great find! I didn't even know that Creature Features aired beyond 1976.
