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.

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.

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?

And to think they're now "on the corner of Happy and Healthy," plus having swallowed up Duane Reade - a store of which I saw here in Chicago when I passed through either en route to a film festival or coming from it, in 2002. Their logo, I've noticed, remains the same, though . . .

His voice sounds very familiar. I think he may have been the VO for some of the early Carson's Ribs commercials.

Anyone want to forward him the Fuzzy Memories link? :)

This may or may not be the same Charles Fuller who was based out of Florida; and who co-produced The Royal Guardsmen's 1966 hit "Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron." Other Fuzzyites who'd know more may either confirm or deny this.


Comment posted in WBBM Channel 2 - Weather Update with Mike Parker & Commercial Break (1980) by W.B. on Saturday, May 21st, 2016 at 9:52am CT

Tucker was also a charter member of the "Eyewitness News" team from within the first two years of its existence on WABC Channel 7 in New York City (he was their features reporter); and the first host of the station's first attempt at a local morning show, "A.M. New York," from 1970 until 1972. (That program was an indirect predecessor to what, until May 13, was known as "Live With Kelly And Michael." As well, it was that city's equivalent of, say, WLS's "Kennedy & Company" which, after a rotation of hosts following Bob Kennedy's death in 1974 and a few title changes along the way, would end up morphing into "The Oprah Winfrey Show" that ran nationally from 1986 until 2011.)

John Bartholomew Tucker was the host of Treasure Isle that lasted 2 seasons on ABC in case you guys didn't know.
