43 Years Ago Today

Here's an early commercial (possibly the first?) for Fox Valley Center in Aurora (which had just opened in 1975), featuring an animated fox hides behind a tree, snacks at a table and emerges with various items, with an admonition to "just follow the Fox."

Fox Valley Center is now known as just Fox Valley Mall, and was formerly Westfield Fox Valley.

Two later commercials for this mall, both from 1983, can be found here and here.

NOTE: The audio on this commercial starts late as a mistake during airing, but it's the best copy we have right now.

" . . . where snow never falls and wind never blows. Just follow the fox . . ."

This aired on December 12, 1975.

He will be missed.


Comment posted in WMAQ Channel 5 - Off the Wall (Opening & Break, 1977) by FieldGal44 on Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 at 7:04pm CT

Off the Wall was just one of four college-themed sitcoms that sank over the next two years, though this one was a year before Animal House. In 1979, AH ripoffs Brothers & Sisters, Delta House, and Co-Ed Fever would all bomb, with the latter lasting a whopping single episode like this stinker.


Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - "Comedy Tonight!" (Promo, 1979) by FieldGal44 on Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 at 2:17pm CT

"Comedy Tonight" was adapted for a Stove Top commercial in 1986.

Comment posted in WSNS Channel 44 - "DePaul Basketball" (Station ID, 1978) by FieldGal44 on Friday, September 21st, 2018 at 12:36am CT

The 1977-78 DePaul team was led by the mighty Dave Corzine, who went pro after that season and, of course, would spend seven years with the Bulls.

I ate way too much Quaker instant oatmeal growing up. The raisins & spice was my favorite.

Good Lord, this is not the way to sell a radio station. As Fuzzy says, utterly generic, not to mention redundant ("old great classics"). What genre are they selling?? Plus, the camera is right in his face like an '80s PSA, and he sounds like he's hawking something on a street corner. I'm surprised he didn't start by saying "Psst! Hey, kid!"
