38 Years Ago Today

Here's a clip of the ending of Outdoor Sportsman on WCIU Channel 26. Joe Wyer had as a guest some kid that wrote into the show - can't quite make out his name - did he say Red? Brad? Rhett? Wouldn't that be neat if he found this clip here after 38 years?

Anyone know what the ending music is?

Outdoor Sportsman was on Saturdays at 5:30 PM, right before Eddie Korosa's Polka Party. (in the early-to-mid 70's Outdoor Sportsman aired on WSNS Channel 44)

Also features a WCIU-TV Channel 26 Station ID slide at the end (voice over by Bill O'Connor)

Hmm...crappy fishing.

It will especially be crappy fishing if is at the water treatment plant!

If he's going fishing, I wonder if he has worms?

Looks like WCIU had the same 3M Datavision character generator system as WSNS, based on the typesetting on the closing bumper. (It wasn't just "Outdoor Sportsman" that aired on both stations, in other words.)

That close was not produced at WCIU. It was made at a local production house.

Hmm. Interesting. What CG system, if any, would WCIU have had in those days, then? Also, would anyone know what test pattern generator they used then (as based on the "Rock of Ages 10th Anniversary" montage)?

Shazam and SoundHound came up stumped on the title of the music, for what it's worth - so it may have just been production music.

From what has been noted, "Outdoor Sportsman" had been produced at Panos Productions (which had that CG system with those particular fonts).

One thing I liked about vacationing was we always drove. If we were driving to Florida or Minnesota or wherever, it meant that we were staying in some town or city at least one night before reaching our destination....so before we got to a hotel, I would beg my mom or dad to stop somewhere and get a TV GUIDE. First thing I did was scan the page of the next morning lineup...then like some kind of weirdo, I'd make sure I was up earlier than the first show I wanted to watch...seeing cartoons in other viewing areas outside of Chicago seemed like a real treat...many stations still ran things like Woody Woodpecker or Tom and Jerry with the full opening/ending titles (something WFLD cut in the late 70's...yet they left the openings to Popeye). Another treat for me, like this example, some had generic blanket titles like CARTOON CARNIVAL and you never knew what was coming up.

My dad probably said something along these lines to me on the very afternoon this aired...

"Why don't you go outside and ride the snowmobile with your brother..isn't he taping this anyways? And don't sit so close to the tv!!"

There was a time when shows in syndication had to bear different titles because the programs were still running on the networks they originated from. Anyone remember Robert Young, Family Doctor that entered syndication within the last year or two Marcus Welby, M.D. was on the ABC schedule? And so it was with Happy Days Again.

Very cool!


Comment posted in Marshall Field's - "Dream Sale" (Commercial, 1981) by Smctopia on Tuesday, April 18th, 2017 at 8:00pm CT

I just had a horrible dream that Marshall Field's got bought out by some big store out of New York and they changed the name and are now talking about selling off or leasing parts of the State Street store. Oh wait, that really happened.

The wrong slide of the clapboard says "B J Dirty Dragon 1244 4/12/1973"
