Here is another rare Snipets segment! These would air on Field Communications stations such as WFLD Channel 32 in the 70s and early 80s. This one also features the older "patchwork" logo of Snipets.

This segment features firefighter Jerry Overstreet (from what looks like San Francisco) taking you through a day in his job, and telling you why he likes it.

HERE'S ANOTHER LONG LOST SNIPETS SEGMENT! Features a young Black/Asian (?) lad, contemplating his physical features, while we hear his internal monologue.

KTLA Channel 5 [Los Angeles, CA] - The Snipets - "Acorn Whistle" (1980)

Views: 988

Here's another rare Snipets segment! (or as it was amusingly called here "The Snipets"). These originally were created by and [primarily] aired on the Kaiser Broadcasting / Field Communications stations such as WFLD Channel 32, in the 1970's and early '80's.

However, in yet another discovery that broadens the history of where these aired - this one was discovered by Joe D'Angelo on a Betamax recording of a broadcast of the educational kids program, "Big Blue Marble" on KTLA C...

WKBS Channel 48 - Snipets - "Homework First" (1983)

Views: 953

Not from Chicago, but rather from a sister Field station in Philadelphia - WKBS Channel 48 - that was at the time a few weeks away from leaving the air permanently, a victim of the implosion of Field Communications.

This is an installment of Snipets which we're entitling "Homework First." The later animated Snipets open is used with the worms materializing and ending up inside a circle with the title atop them, and a 1974 copyright date is listed; though credited...

Views: 474

From within the last few weeks of the existence of Field Communications' Philadelphia, PA station, WKBS Channel 48, here's another Snipets segment, "Policeman," which aired within a rerun of The Flintstones.

Beginning with the "worms" opening (and 1977 copyright date), we see patrolman Dave Jones describing his typical day, accompanied by pertinent footage: going to work at any time of the day, changing to his police uniform at the station, reading daily bulletin...

Views: 1894

Here's another 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!

Snipets - "The Granola Chef" (1981)

Views: 1759

WE FOUND ANOTHER LOST SNIPETS SEGMENT AS AIRED ON WFLD CHANNEL 32! (Well, unfortunately it is one we have already seen before from another station and in a non-Snipets form, as listed below - however this new discovery does push back the latest time that a Snipets segment has been confirmed to have aired on WFLD. Previous to this, the latest confirmed WFLD airing was during the last week of July 1980.)

Here's a complete version of "The Granola Chef...
