It's amazing some of the random things you find through Twitter. Someone with no life of their own today decided to put together a 9-minute compilation of WTAF-TV 29 promos on YouTube. Trust me, it is a good thing that I was not around to critique these back then. Some are decent, but the guy in a Detroit Tigers hat promoting kids shows scares the poop out of me. Enjoy Philly Fox 29 from 22 years ago!
That Phillies promo was one of the coolest things I've seen from the olden days. And wait a minute? Scooby Doo? Wasn't this around the time when that worthless show was finally jumping the shark? Wait? What? The show had already been running 19 years at that point? Sheesh. It must have been doing hurdles over the shark in 1987, and to think I have not gotten over the point that it is still on today.
The other thing that amazes me are all of the lameass cartoons Fox aired back then. Really? Ducktales? You mean to say that people actually watched that? Then again, I guess people did think that dressing like that make them look presentable, so I guess it is feasible. That creep in the Detroit Tigers cap is going to give me nightmares. I just know it.
Is it safe to conclude that the only redeemable television show that came out that year was Blackadder the Third?
