How television benefits your children

The text of the ad basically admits that it's the parents that television benefits, not the children. Because TV is the greatest nanny ever created. Park the kids in front of the boob tube and you don't have to worry about keeping them out of trouble.

No more "rainy day riots" . . . with television keeping small fry out of mischief . . . and out of mother's hair.

Wow, Motorola television!

As a computer programmer who started in the 1980s, when I hear Motorola, my mind goes to the 86008, the chip that powered the QL, and then to the 68000, which was in the Amiga and Atari.
