Stan is now doing 20+ in Greenville.

Hello Stan? Did you make parole yet?

Gary Coleman did a Harris Bank commercial in I wanna say 1975.

If Stan has to balance his checkbook, the charge is $40 an hour!

here's how the rest of that "Hello Stan?" conversation went....

"I thought I'd get up nice and early, take a walk down to the bank...and if you don't have my money I'll bash your (FCC banned word) head in"..this is of course in reference to Joe Pesci's character Nicky Santoro in the movie "Casino"

Very amusing how basically most people now a days would laugh at needing a "personal banker" to do most of these things. Most telling is... a scene where a person is on a public pay phone, calling a personal banker to simply move money from savings to checking, lol.

Is that Orson Welles doing the voice over for the Time Magazine commercial?


Comment posted in Panos Productions (Demonstration Reel, 1978) by TeleFrank on Tuesday, June 20th, 2017 at 7:15am CT

Panos Productions did not produce the Outdoor Sportsman. Joe Wyer the host and producer of the show may have used them occasionally and they did produce the program open. Other than that Joe produced his show out of Studio B at WCIU-TV's Board of Trade Studios. Often he showed 16mm films produced by others. But I clearly remember the day he prepped a deer for "stuffing" live on the desk of the Stock Market Observer. Joe was a taxidermist by trade. His show was a little different every week.

Ernie Panos the owner of Panos Productions was a Greek born dentist who created Panos Productions to produce his own greek language show. He soon discovered that his fellow ethnic broadcasters would use his services for location shooting and occasionally a commercial. They were cheap and incidentally, since you made such a big deal about it in the description the main draw was the CG. WCIU had an art department but not a CG. Paying for the art department to create a slide or a graphic card was a cost that could be avoided by just typing on the Panos CG. It was amazing for these producers.

Not sure what happened I had left WCIU by then but Panos's show went off the air and I think the production company followed. Some years later I recall that Mr. Panos was in the news for fondling young patients. He was acquitted for that. I think he's dead.

Sort of reminds me of the New York Mets' 1980 ad campaign "The Magic Is Back" . . . six years before they won the World Series in seven games. But in '80 they had no magic whatsoever.

Anyone know which New York City station aired "Snipets"? (Either would have been WNEW Channel 5 or WPIX Channel 11 - unless WOR Channel 9 aired them within "Romper Room.")


Comment posted in WKBS Channel 48 - Snipets - "Homework First" (1983) by Phantom on Saturday, June 10th, 2017 at 7:14am CT

A keyword search of Newspapers.com yielded Snipets airings listed on the schedules of WMTV Channel 15 in Madison, Wisconsin from 1979-1982.

Another confirmed "non-Field" station to air "Snipets," as of 1980, was KTLA Channel 5 in Los Angeles (future sister to our own WGN Channel 9).

Also . . . if 1010 WINS' ads used that first shot, what would the voiceover have said . . . "A severe thunderstorm could be heading our way - who'll tell you 'weather' or not?"

That stage show looked awful!

And the petting zoo shot could be a subtle nod to "Animal Stories."
