Views: 521

Here is the third in a series of ten, minute-long shorts (or interstitials as they are sometimes known) created by Field Communications for children called Hooray for Reading. These would air during the commercial breaks on kid's shows and cartoons.

These featured kids briefly doing some other activity besides reading (the "hook") and then describing a book they like using a brief dramatization of a part in the story.

This one is based on the book "A Billion for ...

Screaming Yellow Theater (Svengoolie) - "Generic Film Intro #32" (1971)

Views: 1864

Here's a segment from Screaming Yellow Theater - the original Svengoolie, which aired on WFLD Channel 32 from 1970-1973. Svengoolie was played by Jerry G. Bishop.

As it states this is a "generic" film intro (#32), with Sven goofing around with some video effects. In the early days of the show, SYT consisted mainly of voiceover announcements for the movie, which was eventually expanded into full appearances by Svengoolie. Though it's from after that era, this clip gives you a...

WFLD Channel 32 - Creature Feature - "The Black Cat" (Tiny Opening Excerpt, 1979)

Views: 2733

Blink, and you'll miss it!

Here is an extreme rarity - a painfully small excerpt from the opening of WFLD Channel 32's Creature Feature program. This was the program that was replaced by Son of Svengoolie in Summer of 1979.

If you pause the video at the right spot you can see a fairly clear shot of the opening title. You can make out a smokey graveyard type atmosphere with a black crow or raven perched on a tree branch to the right and a coffin in the foregro...

WSNS Channel 44 - The Dating Game - "Joey D'Auria" (Part 1, 1980)

Views: 2110

What are the odds? Recorded at random and saved without meaning to, here is an episode of The Dating Game on WSNS Channel 44. Cool enough because it has the original commercial breaks intact - however as I was scanning through it I slowly recognized the face - Chicago's Bozo the Clown the Second, Mr. Joey D'Auria was one of the bachelors!

In Part 1, we hear the intro to the show given by host Jim Lange - it's cut off slightly, however from what he says later in the sho...

WFLD Channel 32 - Creature Feature - "The Black Cat" (Bumper Excerpt, 1979)

Views: 1937

Blink, and you'll miss it! (especially this time)

Here is an extreme rarity - a painfully small microblip from a commercial break bumper of WFLD Channel 32's Creature Feature program. This was the program that was replaced by Son of Svengoolie in Summer of 1979. That would date this clip to at least before that time.

If you pause the video at about 10 seconds in you can see a fairly clear frame of the commercial bumper. In this one you can again make out a sm...
