30 Years Ago Today

Here is a very provocative political ad from the Mondale/Ferraro campaign - featuring shots of children interspersed with ICBM's launching and ending with nuclear devastation, all to a soundtrack of Crosby, Stills and Nash's "Teach Your Children". It definitely had an opinion about where Ronald Reagan was taking our country.

This aired on October 30, 1984.

Walter Mondale - "Teach Your Parents" (Political Ad, 1984)

Here is a very provocative political ad from the Mondale/Ferraro campaign - featuring shots of children interspersed with ICBM's launching and ending with nuclear devastation, all to a soundtrack of Crosby, Stills and Nash's "Teach Your Children". It definitely had an opinion about where Ronald Reagan was taking our country. Thank God it didn't turn out that way.

This aired on local Chicago TV on Tuesday, October 30th 1984.

Reagan knew what he was doing. These two sure didn't.

Let's see, Reagan helped win the Cold War, enought said.

Hard to believe that didn't take Mondale straight to the White House. Oy vey...

WOW, and he ONLY won 1 state... Minnesota wonder why ?????

I assume Mondale was for nuclear destruction and raising a generation of kids staring at the TV like a bunch of slack jawed gawkers right? You might as well have put footage of a bear riding a tricycle and a monkey giving a cat a bath because that would've accomplished more.BTW, I liked Reagan!

MonDULL did win only one state, Minnesota, his home state - but he came withing just a few thousand votes of losing that, which would have given Reagan all 50 states. BTW, I too like Reagan; visited his home in Dixon a few years ago - worth the trip from anywhere if you're a Reagan fan like me (it was easy for me to do as I was visiting relatives in Cherry Valley IL, just a hop-skip-and-a-jump up the road from Dixon).

I miss Ronald Reagan.

Terrible political ad for a terrible Democratic presidential candidate during the most overrated and over-appreciated era in American politics. Bush, Clinton, Bush Jr. and (so far) Obama have been disappointments, but everyone seems to forget the sheer scope of political scandals connected with the Reagan administration. If they had the inside dirt on Ronnie at the time, they could have ran a commercial where the nukes were being shipped to our enemies overseas rather than launched at them. The amount of love Reagan gets is a complete mystery to me. My only conclusion is that the US media decided to heavily protect one of their own (a former actor) and a lot of people loved his homespun grandfatherly vibe.

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.

I actually picked up two tapes at a flea market last weekend. One of the tapes had a CBC Newfoundland sign-off from 1993 that ran after the 1937 British film Return of the Scarlet Pimpernel, and on the other, the Season 11 premiere of Dallas from 9/25/1987. Both tapes contained some soap operas, one of which whose intro can be found here.

I'll be posting some more of the stuff from those two tapes over the next few days.
