WFLD Channel 32 - The Honeymooners (Ending, 1979)
Here's the ending for an episode of The Honeymooners on WFLD Channel 32. The ending theme and specially created colored picture shot (with "zooming text" at the end - or in this case would that be "bang-zooming text"?) are delayed as a voiceover promo for Happy Days Again is played too early (voiceover by Ron Beattie), and is heard over black for a few seconds before cutting off; then after the extended bumper starts, another Beattie voiceover previews upcoming episodes of Sanford & Son and All in the Family.
(Apparently, the original ending credits had been hacked off by WFLD, dating back to when the station first got the "Classic 39" episodes in the late 1960's, if this clip from 1971 is of any indication.)
Note: Son of Svengoolie parodied the WFLD ending from this era at the end of one of his "Sven-eymooners" bits.
This aired on local Chicago TV on Sunday, November 4th 1979 at a little before 10:30pm.
