Not from Chicago, but from a station that was then a sister to our own WFLD Channel 32 - Field Communications in San Francisco, a.k.a. KBHK Channel 44 - here's the ending part of Popeye and the opening moments of and first commercial break for The Banana Splits and Friends!

This clip begins as the cartoon "Private Eye Popeye" [1954] is underway; the ending iris and 'a.a.p.' (Associated Artists Productions, Inc.) closing title cards are cut out (a Field trait, apparently) to make room for the closing title sequence, while the voiceover (by Dr. Don Rose) announces the next show on the schedule.

Station ID / promo for The Flintstones for 4:30pm (voiceover by Dr. Don Rose)

Opening sequence for The Banana Splits and Friends, with Tigger-style voiceover (by Paul Winchell) introducing "The Adventures of Huck Finn" (only a part of this show in syndication; this combination live action/animation series, which starred Michael Shea as Huck Finn, with Lu Ann Haslam as Becky Sawyer, Kevin Schultz as Tom Sawyer, and Ted Cassidy, a.k.a. Lurch on The Addams Family, as the voice of Injun Joe, ran as a stand-alone program on the NBC Network from September 15th 1968 to February 23rd 1969 [with repeats aired through September 7th 1969], and its episodes were later incorporated into The Banana Splits package, in a manner not unlike episodes of the 1971-72 series The Sixth Sense later woven into the syndicated package of the 1970-73 anthology series Rod Serling's Night Gallery)

Opening titles and first act of The New Adventures of Huckleberry Finn episode "Prophecy of Peril" (original airdate: February 2nd 1969 - Season 1, Episode 17), with credits to lead off:

Written by David Duncan
Directed by Hollingsworth Morse

The Banana Splits bumper (in a style familiar to Field station aficionadi)

Commercial: Star Wars X-Wing Fighter and Tie Fighter by Kenner - "Starships and Luke Skywalker sold separately; batteries not included" (voiceover by Norman Rose) - (C) 1977 Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation

Commercial: Duncan Yo-Yos - available in Butterfly and Professional variants - by Duncan Toys (voiceover by ??)

(tape ends and recording cuts out at this point)

(Note: This was not our transfer, and thus the picture quality isn't quite up to our usual standards of quality)

This aired on local San Francisco TV some time in 1978 (Pacific time zone).

The "Tigger-style voiceover" is Fleegle, the Banana Split that Winchell voiced.
