A collection of bumpers from WFLD in Chicago featuring various characters from their cartoon line-up back in the late 70s/early 80s: Super Cartoon Sunrise. Each with rain, snow and normal looks. The rectangle served as a clock when on air.
R.I.P. to composers Ralph Carmichael (The Blob, My Mother the Car) and Leslie Bricusse (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory; also wrote the lyrics to the James Bond songs Goldfinger and You Only Live Twice).

R.I.P. to actors Ravil Isyanov (GoldenEye, Transformers Dark of the Moon), Cynthia Harris (Mad About You, Edward & Mrs. Simpson, Three Men and a Baby) and Gerald Home (Return of the Jedi, Mr. Muscle television commercials).
