@ dth: What happened to Entex after that? Comment posted by ChitownTVFan on Wednesday, April 1st 2009 at 4:04pm.
Entex was a British company. They also made (or repackaged under their own name) plastic model kits.
And yes, that d*mn song was an earworm in my head for years too.... Comment posted by SuperCFL on Wednesday, April 1st 2009 at 4:50pm.
Kinda sounded like the late Johnny Olsen sang the song for Giant Loc Blocs, but it's not him. Comment posted by ChitownTVFan on Wednesday, April 1st 2009 at 7:39pm.
I've never forgotten that song. I think my brother had some but compared to Duplos, you could really tell they were less of a "quality" block. Comment posted by smctopia on Thursday, April 2nd 2009 at 6:20pm.

Around Why-Tee (the phonetic spelling for the initials of YouTube), you have quite a few editorials (and even some editorial feedbacks) from sister station WPIX Channel 11 in New York City, as delivered by Richard N. Hughes who was perhaps the most famous of the editorialists in NYC. Pray tell, who amongst the Chicago TV stations' editorialists would have been better known "at the time"? I'm banking on WMAQ's Dillon Smith . . .
NYC sister station WPIX Channel 11's "Portions..." wording was "Portions Of The Preceding Program Were Pre-Recorded." The "pre-recorded" terminology was used by NYC stations almost uniformly, as if they believed New Yorkers wouldn't understand what "mechanically reproduced" meant.
