Ah! Laser Tag! I always had mine set in wide beam (or "shotgun"/wuss mode) because I was a lousy shot. (It also helped covering up the sensor on your vest)

I had photon it sucked and it cost a fortune.

What episode of G.I. Joe was this commercial break from?

Oooh! The G.I. Joe commercial break bumpers are just how I remember them.

That sounds like Peter Cullen at the begining! Scratch that! THAT IS PETER CULLEN!!

Yep. Peter Cullen. Venger himself. He's had quite a long career.
Comment posted by Ringthane on Saturday, March 22nd 2008 at 7:15pm.

I thought that was him but I wasn't sure. Peter also did voices in the Gobots, and so did Arthur Burghardt.

Didn't anyone notice George Clooney in the Facts of Life promo?

Weren't most of these filmed in San Francisco? The firefighter one was for sure.

For some reason, this patrolman's voice reminds me of that of a mail person who once delivered mail to my house for many years, before being assigned to another route elsewhere in Manhattan. Can anyone say for sure, based on some of the buildings, where this cop was based?

Did anyone ever try to make a "Come Back Here" can?


Comment posted in Snipets - "Body Pride" (1976?) by FuzzyMemories on Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 at 9:02pm CT

Oh, right - Berwyn. Can't find anything good in Berwyn any more. :-)


Comment posted in Snipets - "Body Pride" (1976?) by GDambek on Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 at 8:07pm CT

"Come back here" will turn up sooner or later, probably unexpectedly. I'll bet it's sitting on a long forgotten tape, in a dark basement corner in Berwyn. ;)

We have 6 days to use the Colonel's 9 Piece deal...just says offer good through Feb. 20th.

9 pieces of chicken for $3.50...How much are 9 pieces today? And is it even real chicken?

This is the equivalent of patting your head and rubbing your stomach at the same time.

Haven't seen this since it was first broadcast, yet remembered it instantly as soon as it started. I wish I knew why part of my brain that could be storing Tennyson poetry or the birthdays and anniversaries of close friends has decided, "No, we're going to hold onto this Digger the Dog commercial instead."

That building in the shot looks very familiar.


Comment posted in Kentucky Fried Chicken - "The Colonel in Chicago" (Commercial, 1977) by Smctopia on Sunday, February 12th, 2017 at 4:09pm CT

What building exactly are they in? Is that where the Potbelly is now?
