That's not TD error, it's telecine error. That's the position that loaded films and slides for the TD. Obviously this prgm's film was not properly cued what you are seeing is leader on the film print of the show.

@ Telefrank: It happens from time to time. But you know me, I love anything telecine. :-)

Telefrank - I kind of figured that's what it was, but since I don't have a category for that I'm just calling it a technical difficulty - even though it's more of a slight "goof". By the way, anyone know what's written on that leader at one point? (see my thumbnail picture for the video)
Comment posted by FuzzyMemories on Monday, April 13th 2009 at 8:43pm.

In possible answer to FuzzyMemories' question about what is on the thumbnail: "Color by Deluxe" shown backwards. (The name "DeLuxe" was famous on many post-1960-or-so films and TV shows produced by 20th Century-Fox.)

"Color By DeLuxe" is it!

I have a lot of 16mm film prints and on many the countdown leader of the film has images in reverse. A lot of the time, the numbers being counted down are upside down. I can remember seeing Three Stooges shorts with the countdown leader being broadcast complete, with no blacking out. Always thought it was cool.

This kind of telecine goof-thing was more common on WGN during their films though. You'd see a lot of "Place Commercial Here" slugs or "End Reel 2" kinds of things.

Also, TCF, I.I.N.M., co-produced "Lost in Space" (along with the company that produced "The Red Skelton Hour"), thus it makes sense that DeLuxe would be shown on the opening reel for this episode.

This is a fourth season episode of Green Acres titled Eb Uses His
Ingenuity, which aired March 12, 1969 on CBS.

If I'm not mistaken, isn't "Color By DeLuxe" still popping up in some closing credits today?

Wow! I wonder how they got those babies to cry on cue?

Caro Jones was also in charge of casting on the first Rocky movie

Also, WFLD, like WKBD in Detroit, often when the closing credtis were rolling, would cut to the Field Communications sequence.

Wasn't this a Field trait (i.e. with their other stations in Philadelphia [WKBS], Boston [WLVI] and San Francisco [KBHK]) to do such cutting to the Field Communications sequence?

Comment posted in Asch and Associates - "Bill Cassidy Commercial Demo Reel" (1975?) by Loyal32Fan on Sunday, June 19th, 2016 at 6:26pm CT

I remember drinking those diet sodas back in the '70s. They had a nasty aftertaste, almost tasted like metal.


Comment posted in Asch and Associates - "Bill Cassidy Commercial Demo Reel" (1975?) by W.B. on Friday, June 17th, 2016 at 4:19am CT

In some ways, the Asch logo is reminiscent of a portion of the logo for WNET Channel 13 in Newark, NJ / New York City, as used from c.1972 to about 1977. I wonder if the same designer did both logos?


Comment posted in Mattel - "Mork & Mindy Toys" (Commercial, 1979) by LaPrincess on Wednesday, June 15th, 2016 at 9:27pm CT

For some unexplained reason I received the Mork and Mindy game from some program that was giving all the kids toys for Christmas because so many apparently were poor (we weren't so I don't know why they included all kids). Anyway it was a card game and one of the creatures on the card was called oopadoo and we would call one of our dogs that.

Why is it when I watch this, I end up thinking of the Weird Al Yankovic video "I Lost On Jeopardy"?

You have to admit, the man had a distinctive voice.

However, that wig was specifically made for radio.

This is the man that Garry Meier got his "Clif" charachter from. :-)


Comment posted in Dispensa's Castle Of Toys (Commercial, 1979) by LaPrincess on Saturday, June 11th, 2016 at 3:22pm CT

I remember this jingle. I was always fascinated by this store and loved when we took a ride there. I mentioned this on another video but this location has an interesting history. One of the first drive-ins was built on this spot then was torn down (not sure if it was to build Dispensas). After this was closed they built the tallest building (outside the city limits of Chicago) in Illinois.
