Viewer Comments

The noonbreak hostess name is Lee Phillip - Her husband - Bill Bell is creator of the soap opera Bold & the Beautiful for anyone who cares.

First: Is John Coughlin the son or brother of Dick Coughlin, who was the host of Chicago's Breakfast with Bugs Bunny show on WGN before Ray Rayner took his place as host?

Second: Why didn't Svengoolie (Son of) wish a farewell to Ray Rayner?

No Son of Svengoolie you say? Perhaps because 32 was 9's direct rival back in that day.

Why was Donohue filmed on the Bozo set? And is the Noonbreak host Lee Phillip?

David H: If you look at an ad from the same campaign a year earlier http://www.fuzzymemories.tv/index.php?c=1467 , the numbers do NOT start with 555, but 888, 8 and 7.

Interesting that when you see the closeups of the phone and the hands pressing the buttons, they always start with 555- , the default phone number choice used for all phone numbers on TV shows from this era.

I'm not sure if it's been said before, this must've come from a U-Matic tape.
