Kiddieland Amusement Park (Commercial #1, 1990)

Here's a commercial for Kiddieland Amusement Park - gone but not forgotten.

This commercial was produced and directed (and some editing and camera work) by Ken Williamson. The music was written and produced by Sound Images. Ken owned a production company in Cincinnati called The Film House at the time. They specialized in Amusement Park commercials world-wide. (he sold the company in 2000, but is still active in the production business)

This commercial aired on local Chicago TV in the Summer of 1990.

I remember seeing this commercial, however I remember seeing it in the summer of 1988.

I went with my Friends today and we took our children for the first and the last time. Sad.

From what this looks like, this would have originally aired within the week of January 28th-February 4th 1980, as part of the "Fast/Slow" theme that permeated all that week's episodes. I'm wondering if this was the "Speed Up, Slow Down" episode of the 28th or later. You can check the Season 1 episode guide on Wikipedia's page about the series. Exactly when WCAE aired this is anyone's guess.

And B.T.W., would anyone know whatever became of Ginny Lopez (who played Trini) and Liz Moses (who played Lisa)?


Comment posted in WEFM 99.5 FM - "Serious Music" (Commercial, 1971) by W.B. on Tuesday, March 28th, 2017 at 9:34am CT

This 99.5 saga sounds very similar to the late, lamented WNCN (104.3 FM) in New York City. It had been playing classical music for nearly two decades when, in 1974, after a change in ownership, they flipped to a quadraphonic-based rock format as WQIV. The Listeners Guild raised a hue and cry, and after a year (and another change in ownership) they flipped back to the classical format. So it remained until late 1993 when they signed off for the last time with Haydn's "Farewell [45th] Symphony" - and, thereafter, adopted new calls (WAXQ = "Q104.3") and a rock format. Since 1996, they've been the city's "classic rock" station, playing the same 50 or so chestnuts over and over and over again. And the other classical station in town, WQXR (formerly at 1560 AM and 96.3 FM), is now parked at 105.9 and, in a sense, a de facto sister station to Chicago's own WFMT!

@Smctopia - sorry, you have to take them as a pair. ;-)

You were not the only one who had a crush on Trini growing up, lol.

Let alone in "Forbidden Planet" . . .

I wonder if Robbie the Robot really desperately needed an acting job at this point?

Also, notice the different V/O as opposed to his time during L.I.S.....

Looks like he did thread the reel OK - he just left several inches hanging out of the spool; probably just trying to get it running quicker.

And 1" tape formats hadn't yet taken hold in the industry. I think the "fast" opening was deliberate and intentional (as part of the plot of this ep), and the tape ops at WCAE were fooled tremendously.
