And we now return to our “Artzee Fartzee” Post It Post already in progress.
You know what I really miss about television from the 80′s and 90′s…the intros to the commercial breaks. They were definitely more polite. For instance, let’s say when “ALF” would go to commercial, usually an “ALF” logo would come up on screen and you’d either hear an announcer or the voice of one of the cast members say, “ALF will be back right after these messages.” And then when the advertisers were finished trying to sell you their wares…the network would politely announce, “We now return to ALF.” What the Hell happen to this practice? I know, I know…shows cost more to produce so that now there are more commercials and less time for even the show let alone the politeness of greeting you back after having been rudely interrupted with advertisements, but dammit, I miss that! Hell, no one did it better than NBC on Saturday Mornings when they’d have their sitcom stars do the tags in between the commercial breaks. You’d have Rudy from the “Cosby Show” or Blossom from “Blossom” letting you know that “The ‘Smurfs’ will return after these Commercial Breaks,” and so forth.
“Artzee Fartzee” Post It Post will return after these messages!
