36 Years Ago Today

Here's a commercial bumper for the Son of Svengoolie presentation of "Son of Frankenstein" on one of the Field Communications affiliates - KBHK Channel 44 in San Francisco as chosen by Audrey Birkner.

Obvious question: Why did they use "Rumble" if "Sven's Theme" had been in use for many years by this point?

Also interesting to note that they titled it, "Svengoolie Movie".

This aired on May 21, 1983.

Maybe it was from an older airing.

Also interesting to note that they captioned it, "Svengoolie Movie".

I'm guessing that they figured the San Francisco audience would have no idea who he was supposed to be the 'Son Of...' (which was part of the joke to begin with).

Fantastic find Rick! :)

I'd have to agree with TVsTim. I don't think I ever saw anything related to SoS on 44 (maybe because I couldn't stay up late back then as a child of under ten), because it's likely Field figured it'd be too much of a hassle to have to explain the whole "Son of..." backstory, on the grounds that the series would be nowhere near as well-received over here. Oh well, our loss.

Is that cottage cheese on the plate, or some kind of tartar sauce?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5-x-9LciYA is basically the same ad about 13 years earlier sans the baby.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar's first commercial is for DAS Smurf Modelling Clay. He would have been 8 years old here.

The reaction of how Moe and Curly turned around to look at the wall paper is still funny as heck to me!! LOL!!!!

Additional note: CHCH in Hamilton began rerunning the series as of January 21, 2019, with special guest appearances by the Diff'rent Strokes main cast in that first episode (originally aired August 24, 1979 on NBC), and a larger cast than what we'd be accustomed to in later seasons as the girls grew up over the years.

George Clooney appeared in a number of Season 7 episodes of The Facts of Life starting with S7E2, which was the episode WGN ran on this particular day.

The Facts of Life information: Season 7 Episode 2: "Into the Frying Pan", originally aired on NBC on September 21, 1985, and the first to have George Clooney in the opening credits, and the second of only three episodes in this particular season to have Edna's Edibles as the opening backdrop. The next opening backdrop to be used (Over Our Heads) debuted two episodes later (S7E4) and would last right to the two-part series finale in 1988.

I see Emmanuel Lewis (Webster) in the last take.

That video was from yesterday. They got the title and video mixed up. In 1959 Ron was a child then, probably not an actor yet.

The voiceover sounds like George Fenneman.
