The #1 show of the 1981-82 season was Dallas. Baker's Dozen is almost like Barney Miller, but Baker's Dozen is the last show of the series before CBS cancelled it after 3 months.

This episode of "Baker's Dozen" had been originally scheduled for Wednesday April 14th 1982. CBS's floundering Wednesday lineup of "WKRP in Cincinnati" (the show CBS really wanted to cancel,) "Baker's Dozen" and "Shannon" were replaced that night by a two hour repeat of "The Dukes of Hazzard." The "WKRP" episode "To Err Is Human" that night was rescheduled to Monday August 9th 1982. (The various epguides for "WKRP" miss that change in schedule.)

Wow, a laugh track when it is very clear that it isn't being done in front of a studio audience... was that a common thing, because that seems extremely weak.

The movie Bob Carrington was referring to was the 1968 movie "Villa Rides" starring Yul Brynner, Robert Mitchum, Maria Grazia Buccella & Herbert Lom.

Twilight Time has released it on Blu-ray. I will order my copy before it becomes out-of-print.

Did anyone notice the Monday Night Football theme heard at the start and end of this promo?

Wonder why this thing isn't around anymore? "Let me see what happens if I stand on it?." Merry Christmas!

Cool find but we all know which one we're waiting for...


Comment posted in The Lost Snipets - "Meditation On A Bath" (A FuzzyMemories Re-Creation) by Smctopia on Tuesday, June 9th, 2015 at 9:29pm CT

I found this on YouTube as a Sesame Street clip. Check out the comments though because someone named Paul Kyriazi claims to have directed it for Sesame Street and said that Mark Krigbaum produced and edited it and Roy Cox photographed it on 16mm film. The link is:

Comment posted in WBBM Channel 2 - The 1982 Chicago Emmy Awards (Excerpt, 1982) by FuzzyMemories on Tuesday, June 9th, 2015 at 3:40pm CT

OK - now having actually watched the clip again, I know what's going on here. I forgot where this clip originated but it wasn't with me. It is a clip from the 1982 Emmys, but it was shown during a segment of Steve Dahl's It's Too Early show. (the slide at the end is going back into the show (or perhaps to a commercial break), where you can hear the in-studio band noodling) Perhaps he showed this clip in anticipation of the 1983 Emmy Awards - not sure.


Comment posted in Chatter's World - "Chatter's Drafted" (1960) by HUdson 3-2700 on Sunday, June 7th, 2015 at 10:32pm CT

Chatter also aired on WFLD circa 1968-69 when the station started airing kids' shows after school. They showed on "Cartoon Town" with Bill Jackson, a predecessor of "BJ and Dirty Dragon."

Channel 32 had some interesting shows for kids when they started out. "Speed Racer" started out on 32, and I think "Tobor the 8th Man" was another show. Those were the days.
