35 Years Ago Today
Here's another neat clip for a contest WFLD Channel 32 had called WFLD Mystery Man - where you would have to identify which cartoon character certain features of the "Mystery Man" was made up of. 3 out of 5 correctly identified pieces wins. One piece was revealed each day. The one show here is the Mystery Man's Legs & Feet - whose is it? (Think Spinach) Special bonus clue every day between 5 and 6:30!
You could win prizes such as a $100 Toys-R-Us gift certificate, one of 90 $10 Toys-R-Us gift certificates, or one of 10 bikes! You were encouraged to enter "often" to:
WFLD Mystery Man
Chicago, IL 60654
Voiceover by "Dr." Donald D. Rose.
This aired on May 23, 1980, the day the contest ended.
Spoiler alert: The legs are Popeyes, the head is Woody Woodpecker, Underdog's torso, Spiderman's arms, and Magilla Gorilla's hat.
I wonder if this was drawn by Cathy Mustari, who was the station's art director from 1974 to 1987.
