May 25, 2014: Meet the Pink Panther

 

You'll find ten more ads today, all from August 1993, plus three more Random Pages gallery additions from pages of The Blade. The first one is a Thursday, 8/12/93 Peach Section story by Tom Ensign, "Anderson Fans, Take Heart; Jerry's Moving to WSPD." Next is a Friday, 8/2/93 Peach Section story, "Channel 13 Adds to Its News Staff." There's also a Sunday, 8/12/93 TV Week cover, with Bruce Campell, star of The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. I was a fan of this show, one of Fox's Friday night failures. I was also a fan of VR.5 (1995) and Strange Luck (1996-97), two more. There's one addition to the Channel 24 gallery, a Sunday, 8/15/93 ad for The Editors (Marcy Kaptur). There are five additions to the the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, starting with a Thursday, 8/12/93 ad for Headline News (Don Harrison), followed by a Wednesday, 8/18/93 ad for Screen Scene on BET. Next is a Monday, 8/23/93 ad for Funny Business with Charlie Chase XIII, on TNN. There's also a Monday, 8/30/93 ad for WWF Summer Slam on Impulse pay-per-view and a Tuesday, 8/31/93 ad for Killing for a Living: In the Company of Killers, on the Discovery Channel. There are two additions to the ToledoVision 5 gallery, including a Thursday, 8/12/93 ad for PGA Championship Preview (in addition to the other PGA Championship ads from last Thursday). There's also a Friday, 8/27/93 ad for U.S. Open Tennis Preview. The last two ads are additions to the Other Vintage ads gallery, a Monday, 8/23/93 Food Town ad for the 1993 German American Festival, and a Thursday, 8/26/93 full-page ad for Zoo Day with Drs. Kahn & Diehl, where kids could meet the Pink Panther, also sponsored by ToledoVision 5. September 1993 ads, from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
