35 Years Ago Today

Here's a segment from episode number 125 of Son of Svengoolie, airing the film "Destroy All Planets", and featuring home movies and pictures from the State Street Christmas parade - with dialogue amusingly sped-up by Sven. The woman doing it is named Susan Uyeda, who was an artist that worked on Son of Svengoolie.

Features Mike Leiderman of PM Magazine fame and his daughter Jill. (Jill Leiderman is now the Executive Producer of "Jimmy Kimmel Live")

You can also see some nice shots of the Marina City towers and some old Chicago businesses.

This aired on December 5, 1981.

The problem with pinpointing the date is Sven showed three weeks of dubbed Japanese monster movies right after the 1981 State Street Christmas Parade on November 29. "Destroy All Planets" on December 5,
"Gamera vs. Monster X" on December 12, and "Yog, Monster from Space" on December 19.

I love it when Sven parodies the poorly English-dubbed sci-fi movies from Japan. Sven did the same thing again when showing 'Godzilla vs. Megalon' on Channel 26 over a decade ago. That was when he did a mock commercial on how to speak dubbed-English.

Great shot of the "State Lake" marquee (1:42) featuring a double feature of "The Boogens" and "New Years Evil"!! Ah, the good old days, when you could watch The State Street Christmas Parade featuring Sven and latter take in a great horror-exploitation double feature!! I've said it before and I'll say it again I WISH I could go back in time ;)

I was able to definitively date this clip based on it's position between other recorded material (PM Magazine episodes) on the same tape. This was from episode number 125 of Son of Svengoolie where he showed "Destroy All Planets".

Re: Nasty McEvil (boy, is that fun to say) - it's John Stephenson, evidently channeling Conried.

Interesting that they used a Tweety Bird stuffed animal at the beginning of this ad instead of a generic, non copyrighted plush toy.

I was watching the show as a lad in about this timeframe, and I have zero memory of the sunburst around the clock. Memory is so fickle.

I miss Osco's.

The same news desk seen here in 1983 was used in 1987 for some test runs of Fox 32 News, as seen here: https://youtu.be/C-leT1buYYs?t=1m27s

I remember an article written about her shortly after her debut with the headline "Yu Sends Me," that also remarked on how attractive she was. Between her and Deborah Norville, channel 5 seemed to specialize in beautiful anchors.

VintageCanada: I think Fuzzy can confirm this, but I believe it was 2 60 minute 3/4" U-Matic tapes. I'm guessing the tape change took place during a commercial break and was done in under 2 minutes.

I think nobody's bothered to ask this yet: how many tapes were used to record this movie? It is possible some bits of the overall recording would've been cut in order to change tapes.

Coming back from Wrigley Field on the 'L' with a group of friends, getting off at the Howard St. station, and then walking to the Arthur Treacher's a block or so away for chicken and chips, before taking the bus home to Skokie. Great times. Even if the Cubs weren't as good back then as they are now.
