Here's an appeal for membership on WTTW Channel 11 (from an original 2" quad master tape), with longtime staff announcer Marty Robinson speaking in the language associated with the TV series Zoom ("Ubbi Dubbi") - and his son Paul (shown in inset on the upper left side of the screen) translating for him.

Even the address is shown in "Zoom" language on the lower-third of the screen at first (set in Microgramma Bold Extended - or is that Mubicrubogrubammuba Bubold Ubextubendubed? ;-) ), before being shown regularly at the end.

This was directed by Don Voigt (who at the time was "Supervisor of Air Directors and Announcers") who also came up with the idea.

This aired on local Chicago TV circa 1973.
