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?

Wow, Jane Byrne looked like someone just shot her dog. How about a smile Janey?

Somehow, I always knew back in my mind that CF aired well after 1976. Now, if someone has recordings of the short-lived live host airings of CF, that would be a 24 karat platinum find! But, from what I understand, that would be as likely as finding a recording of the first ever Tonight Show With Johnny Carson. With this clip, however, I would have to say that in all of the years of visiting vintage TV sites, you have the best research team ever! A job well done would not even begin to cover it! Epic!

Awesome!


Comment posted in Kellogg's Sugar Corn Pops (Commercial, 1979) by HUdson 3-2700 on Tuesday, October 28th, 2014 at 1:58pm CT

In the '60's they were just "Sugar Pops." That was back in the day when the Hanna-Barbera cartoons were on the box. The only one I remember, unfortunately, is Quick Draw McGraw on the box of Sugar Smacks, now called Honey Smacks, though I haven't seen them in a while. They were 56% sugar...

Whoa, great find! I didn't even know that Creature Features aired beyond 1976.

I recently saw the Gary Coleman exhibit at the Museum of Broadcast Communications. Sort of sad if you think about it. Gary seemed to be a bright, happy kid with a lot of charisma that got swallowed up and spit out by Hollywood.

Sorry to make you go through any trouble. That news clip actually precedes the Nite-Owl clip on the tape. I just tried to edit it out when posting this clip. One frame must have slipped through. :-)

That's WLS-TV. (from left) Jay Levine, Diane Allen, Jay Berry.

Anyone know what station this was? I had to do something very clever to make that frame useable.
