All you have to do to sell a product like that is to get an actor who looks like a doctor, and a very plain looking actress to strike poses in front of a mirror, and even more actors to give verbal testimonials...Actors, actors, and even more actors...Oh my!

This would be much more amusing if the same snake oil wasn't still so prevalently peddled today (replete with legions of suckers continuing to buy it). Comment posted by Studio76Art on Friday, August 6th 2010 at 1:59am.

I'm so glad this footage has turned up--I remembered seeing Creature Features in the late '70s and early '80s, but every historical reference I could find on the Interwebs told me that it ended in May 1976, so I assumed my memory was just wrong...until now! I also remember the simple opening with the blue slide. I must have been up late during summer vacation to see it, and I don't know which movie I saw (Kronos, maybe, since I remember seeing that on CF, though it only aired once in the "classic" era...when I was 9), but I remember being shocked (and thrilled!) to see it still on the air. I still have dreams about the show, too--usually that somebody has at least briefly revived it and I've stumbled across it on cable. (You listening Antenna TV? Cozi? This?)
These puppets were later used on a show called I.N.K. -- Interesting News for Kids. I thought it was on WMAQ, but maybe I'm wrong on that. The mic was named Mike Rafone, (get it?), and the show also featured a character who was a spider that looked like a black glove with a huge black pin cushion sewn onto the top of it. This is the ONLY reference I've seen to the show in years.
