This was in the very early 70's.
Ha ha, "Fix da weather good," Kudzma. Then the rain.

I remember that commercial.

Kimba - YUCK. Too goody-good. I was more a Bugs Bunny type.

Loved Paul Shannon's show as an elementary school-aged kid in the '60s. Especially at Christmastime.

Yeah! In my book, Bugs is the greatest cartoon character, and no one comes close.

Bugs



Daffy
Foghorn Leghorn
Yosemite Sam
Wile E Coyote
Fred Flintstone
Popeye
Herman the mouse
Dick Dastardley


Nothing created after the 60's has been worth a damn.

Getting back to the original subject, I remember a visitor from out of town commenting on turning on the tv, and seeing Paul Long doing the news. In a business where being young and attractive carries great weight, here was this guy who was "older than God, and had a voice to match".

She lived in Fox Chapel. The company I was working for at the time was doing some sewer work in the street leading to hers, and had to restrict traffic periodically, for maybe five minutes at a time. I wasn't there, but the guys said she had a really nasty attitude about being delayed...

Wow, how unsophisticated TV news was then. Strange to hear of kids dying back then, having been a kid then too. Or just people having been killed so long ago, and here we are now. Plus hints of Pittsburgh's decline with labor unions making Pittsburgh pretty unpopular for business. The coolest innovation for TV local news I recall is when stations got radar and could show weather systems. No color radar then, just black and white shadows.
