We suffered Cactus Jim until he was caught running around town wearing his six shooter. Nope, nothing else, just his six shooter.

What was it with Turkish Taffy? American Taffy wasn't good enough for consumption? I also kept expecting a pitch for Chesterfield cigarettes.

Geesh, and the kids were trying to look\wave at the cameras and couldn't figure out which way to look\wave.

Man, that was grim. Good to be reminded that there was gawdawful TV in the old days as well. But it brought back the Bonomo's Turkish Taffy commercial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jpw64PkCJn8. That's a voyage down memory lane.
