36 Years Ago Today

Here's a public service announcement with Barbara Rush encouraging you to "watch what your child watches". From the Catholic Church World Communications Day - Sunday, June 1, 1980.

(The screaming heard over the "bad movie" the kids are watching is the same tape loop that was used as part of the theme for the original Svengoolie show starring Jerry G. Bishop)

This aired on May 31, 1980.

If they showed a kid playing with matches today that would be controversial.

I would support the message of this commercial if I were convinced that the average parents watched quality TV programs. When left to my own devices as a kid, I stayed away from everything but cartoons and the Three Stooges.

I don't remember hitting anyone with a hammer or poking anyone in the eye.

At the end of the Shell spot, that looks like the Screen Gems residential street. And of course that's Paul Frees as the Pillsbury Doughboy.
