I added another 22 ads today, from October and November 1988. The ABC gallery has three full-page ads, one for the 1988 series premiere of Mission: Impossible, titled "The Killer" (Tony Hamilton, Terry Markwell, Peter Graves, Phil Morris, Thaao Penghlis), one for the emmy award winning The Wonder Years (Fred Savage) for two repeat episodes which were pre-empted on channels 24 and 7 by the syndicated special The Secret Identity of Jack the Ripper and one for the MacGyver Halloween episode "The Secret of Parker House" (Richard Dean Anderson). There are also three in the CBS gallery, one for part two of This is America, Charlie Brown ("The Birth of the Constitution") and Garfield's Halloween Adventure, one for part three of This is America, Charlie Brown ("The Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk") and Meet the Raisins and one for Family Feud (Ray Combs). The NBC gallery has three as well, one for the series premiere of Midnight Caller, titled "Conversations with an Assassin" (Gary Cole), one for Days of Our Lives (Joseph Mascolo. Deidre Hall) and one for the third season premiere of L.A. Law titled "Hey, Lick Me Over" (Jimmy Smits, Jill Eikenberry, Michael Tucker, Harry Hamlin, Susan Dey, Corbin Bernsen). There are eleven ads in the TBS gallery, one for National Geographic Explorer (A Victim of AIDS?), one for the 1988 NBA Hall of Fame Game with the Clippers playing the Pistons (Isiah Thomas) and nine more ads for movies, one for "The Last Dinosaur," one for "Hitler: The Last Ten Days" (Alec Guiness), one for "Helter Skelter" (Steve Railsback), one for "Guyana Tragedy: The Story of Jim Jones" (Powers Booth), one for "With Six You Get Eggroll" (Doris Day, Brian Keith), one for two Halloween 'Twin Terror' films, "This House Possessed" and "The Dark Night of the Scarecrow," one for "Dr. Zhivago" (Julie Christie, Omar Sharif), one for "Silver Streak" (Gene Wilder, Jill Clayburgh, Richard Pryor) and one for "The Dirty Dozen" Next Mission." The Ohio & W. Pennsylvania gallery has a WHIO-TV 7 ad for a Newscenter 7 Don Mills report on health care costs and the Other Vintage Ads gallery has a Hardee's ad for California Raisins toys.
