I remember Grover's irreverent radio commercials on Bob Collins' WGN radio show.

Irving Park Road - Now "Chicago Joe's."
St. Charles Road - Now split between:

Building & Remodeling Store
Michael Esposito DDS
Gary Johnson DDS
R L Business Services
State Farm Insurance - Kathy Peterson

I guess they should have become famous sooner.

The weatherman's elephant jokes need work.

The guy is right in that the ghosts follow a pattern that can be exploited. This was fixed in Ms. Pac-man a year later in 1981.

He must not have played it long enough to get to the infamous level 256 kill screen.

That's definitely NOT Lisa Whelchel!!!! Such overacting in this commercial. Obviously they were hired for their looks and not their acting skills.

Checking the Tornado History Project, there was only one tornado listed for this date in Illinois. It was a pretty big one: an F4 which touched down at 7:20 PM near Atlanta, IL and ran northeast over seven miles along I-55; luckily no lives were lost and only two injuries.

No, I don't think that is her.

As a kid I could often hear my parents watching TV in the other room while I was in bed. I remember hearing the music at 2:25. Was that the "news theme" that Channel 9 news used since this aired on channel 9?

Is the blonde Lisa Whelchel?

This made me curious to know who did the invent the first clock: the full name is Benjamin Banneker.

Is Herb Hugo the guy from up? The resemblance is uncanny.
