Cheker later was taken over by Speedway.

I used to have a Cheker near where I grew up and I remember my dad going in there.

"When I drive into Cheker, I say Sayers, you're right at home." I say either the gas fumes or the concussions have gotten to him.

Or maybe he didn't really get over teammate Brian Piccolo's death . . .

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!

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.

I recently saw the Gary Coleman exhibit at the Museum of Broadcast Communications. Sort of sad if you think about it. Gary seemed to be a bright, happy kid with a lot of charisma that got swallowed up and spit out by Hollywood.

Sorry to make you go through any trouble. That news clip actually precedes the Nite-Owl clip on the tape. I just tried to edit it out when posting this clip. One frame must have slipped through. :-)

That's WLS-TV. (from left) Jay Levine, Diane Allen, Jay Berry.

Anyone know what station this was? I had to do something very clever to make that frame useable.
