They just paid tribute to Jerry G on METV'S Saturday Night Svengoolie. A very nice tribute. They showed a few seconds of this very clip!

Cool, I'm glad they were able to work that in. Did it look like they used our exact clip or was it a better quality version of it? If the former, it's too bad they didn't contact me; I could have provided them with a DVD copy - probably would have been better quality than showing the flash video clip. In any case it's nice they were able to honor Jerry G. :-)

Rick, I just looked at the show again. I recorded it on DVD. The clip doesn't look as good as the copy you have here.

I can send you a copy of the show if you'd like Rick. :)
The audio of the program was not the best, apparently due to our local METV affiliate, KUBE-TV, here in Houston, having audio problems. I checked the cable from which I recorded the program, with a portable digital TV I have. The audio issue was the same on both. The video is excellent, though. Sounds as though you're listening the audio through a tin can.

I DVR'd it too. The audio and video are good and clear, but is joined already-in-progress by a second or two (the Denver METV affiliate was a hair late coming out of Star Trek), it comes in partway through the first sentence.

Oddity...sounds like they, the Denver affiliate, overbooked the break. (had 3:30 local commercial break when it should have been 2:30.) That was often a problem in Charlotte as well. A pain.

Here's some info I found on Tony the Pony. It doesn't appear to be locally produced.

It was Missy Gold in the Burger King ad. Funny because I knew that the second I saw her. She wouldn't be known to a national audience until Benson's debut in 1979.

You are correct. I can't believe I typed the wrong thing and no one caught it earlier!

The F & M in Buffalo Grove was at Dundee and Buffalo Grove Roads, not Dundee and 12.

There was also an F & M in Joliet off Larkin Avenue. Last I checked it was home to Big Lots.


Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - Creature Features - "The Raven" (Opening & Bumper Excerpts, 1978) by AdoreSixtyFour on Monday, November 17th, 2014 at 1:59pm CT

I'm so glad this footage has turned up--I remembered seeing Creature Features in the late '70s and early '80s, but every historical reference I could find on the Interwebs told me that it ended in May 1976, so I assumed my memory was just wrong...until now! I also remember the simple opening with the blue slide. I must have been up late during summer vacation to see it, and I don't know which movie I saw (Kronos, maybe, since I remember seeing that on CF, though it only aired once in the "classic" era...when I was 9), but I remember being shocked (and thrilled!) to see it still on the air. I still have dreams about the show, too--usually that somebody has at least briefly revived it and I've stumbled across it on cable. (You listening Antenna TV? Cozi? This?)

Wow...I remembered Monster Rally (I think I watched every local horror-film showcase in the '70s & '80s), but had completely forgotten this super-cool opening!

These puppets were later used on a show called I.N.K. -- Interesting News for Kids. I thought it was on WMAQ, but maybe I'm wrong on that. The mic was named Mike Rafone, (get it?), and the show also featured a character who was a spider that looked like a black glove with a huge black pin cushion sewn onto the top of it. This is the ONLY reference I've seen to the show in years.

Did this ever go anywhere, or was it just an opening, which was also used, (as I remember), as a commercial? I don't remember ever seeing the host doing any bumpers or skits, ala Svengoolie.

That was great! Put this with the Long Chevrolet Newsboy commercial.
