Here is the opening for SuperStation Funtime - a kid's show on early cable outlet SuperStation WTBS. It wasn't exactly Super Cartoon Sunrise, but then those were big shoes to fill.

Ok, it's not THAT Channel 9, but thought it looked cool anyway - these people must have had an early cable system here that picked this up. It's an animated station ID for WOR Channel 9 in New York.

This aired on Chicago TV (via Cable) likely in October of 1979.

ON TV - Subscription Television Chicago (1983)

Views: 2537

Here is a clip of some footage from ON TV Subscription Television, which was an early cable TV option in Chicago. (not sure if other cities had it)

I think this clip dates to March 1983, since Quest for Fire was not released in the US until 1982, so I don't think cable would have gotten it until the next year.

Tele1st - "Scrambled Delights" (1984)

Views: 6861

Here's an example of some scrambled programming on Tele1st. As Chris (Phantom) described earlier, we see the picture cycling between normal and inverted (negative) colors. And the sound has a constant sharp percussive beat in the background while the program audio sounds like it is smooshed together.

All in all, I wouldn't have wanted to be a teenager on drugs while watching this.
I edited together some segments separated by fade-outs. This was worth $25.95...
