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.

Wonder if that song was what was floating in Joan Baez' head when recording her version of "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" whereby how she sings one of the lines, sounds like "There goes the Robert E. Lee."

Funny . . . they didn't look all that much like Donny & Marie in that storyboard . . .

"Waiting for the Robert E. Lee" shows up in a lot of stuff from this era, including an episode of Laverne & Shirley (in one of the Shotz Talent Show episodes) and in Disney's Bicentenial "America on Parade" in their theme parks.

Loved seeing the old fountain in the Woodfield ad. The water formed a waterfall and there were fish tanks below it. Now there's a mini escalator there and a Comcast area. So boring.

That is of course supposed to be Donny and Marie in the Hawaiian Punch Story Board.

Rick: That jingle was referred to on the Bill Leff show you and I were on late night on WGN Radio back in December of 2012.

The song is public domain, and I heard it in one of those bouncing ball sing along cartoons, I recognized it as the District Furniture song. https://youtu.be/jLI3xzwAGDQ?t=4m4s

Nice Photoshop job of combing the intro and ending graphics into one thumbnail image.

Thanks, Kevin for the ID on the source of the jingle!

This jingle was based off of the song "Waiting For The Robert E. Lee." The furniture shot, but not the logo or banjo player looks like it could have been shot in the Ridgewood High School TV Studio, from the white cylorama curtain to the C stand light just in the frame on the left side of the screen. They had just rented a servo zoom controller to upgrade a manual crank zoom and were probably ancy to use it. There was also a locally produced Preparation H ad pretending to be at a race track shot on videotape with the same setup.

I saw the movie 'Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things'. Worst zombie movie ever.

I remember Patrick O'Neal in an episode of the 'Night Gallery' called 'Fear of Spiders'. He also did television shows like 'Alfred Hitchcock' and 'The Outer Limits'.

That Bingo head was from a commercial for the Muscular Dystrophy carnival kits featuring the Banana Splits.
