WCIX Channel 6 - Snipets - "The Granola Chef" (1984)

Views: 2562

Here's another (partial) rare Snipets segment! These originally were created by and aired on the Kaiser Broadcasting / Field Communications stations such as WFLD Channel 32, in the 70s and early 80s. However, with the sale and dissolution of Field starting in 1982, for whatever reason Snipets segments popped up on a few other non-Field or former-Field stations, even as late as 1986!

Here's another segment from Screaming Yellow Theater - the original Svengoolie, which aired on WFLD Channel 32 from 1970-1973. Svengoolie was played by Jerry G. Bishop. By this point, if the clapboard is of any indication, the SYT title had been eschewed in favor of Svengoolie.

This segment is from Show #61 (according to the clapboard), with guest Larry "Superjock" Lujack. The recording date was April 11th 1973.

WGN Channel 9 - The Morning Movie - "Sorry, Wrong Number" (Opening, 1975)

Views: 7839

Here's some really rare footage - from exactly 35 years old today - the opening to The Morning Movie presentation of "Sorry, Wrong Number" on WGN Channel 9.

This was recorded at Ridgewood High School in Norridge (by whom, has been lost to time) on 3/4" U-matic videotape using the 'ol rabbit ears, and thus unfortunately there is a bit of fuzz at times and the color goes out periodically. Also, due to the age of the tape, portions of the breaks have degraded in quality ...

WTTW Channel 11 - Movie Eleven - "Dr. Who" (Opening, 1976)

Views: 5057

Here is some amazing, ancient footage that really has no business existing.

Finally the "classic" Movie Eleven opening from the 70's, complete. Prior to this the only footage I found was a brief snippet of the title card. This was a unique night because they were showing a 4 part episode of Dr. Who, "The Claws of Axos". The showed the episodes back-to-back with a brief intermission between ...

WFLD Channel 32 - Chicago Stuff (Part 3, 1985)

Views: 1848

Here's a lost Koz Klassic! - Chicago Stuff - was it a failed pilot? A consolation prize from Fox Television for cancelling Son of Svengoolie a month later? A half-remembered dream? It only aired once, at 10pm on a Sunday in December 1985 - so you couldn't be blamed for not knowing it existed. (I only heard rumors) In any case, it's a neat little package of Rich's schtick, so just think of it as an extremely early episode of The Koz Zone. :-)
