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 smokey graveyard type atmosphere with a black crow or raven perched on a tree branch to the right and a coffin in the foreground. In this one you can more clearly see that overlayed on top of this was a spooky image of a cat's face. The eye of the cat is directly left of the crow.

No idea what the music was for WFLD's Creature Feature. You can hear an extremely small snippet of it in this clip and the other one. If anyone remembers what the music was, feel free to comment.

Too bad the person that recorded this Universal movie, "The Black Cat" was so dilligent in removing the commercial breaks - because this is the only footage currently known to exist of WFLD's Creature Feature commercial bumper. :-(

If you ever find any more, let me know. ;-)

This aired on local Chicago TV on Friday, July 13th 1979.
