RATE IT! Truly Special

With the previous Snoopy post, it's a bit timely to add this retro TV special intro from CBS.

It brings with it very simple animation (well, it was the 70s!) and a flood of warm, happy memories. Whenever this :06 opening would play, kiddies across the U.S. and Canada knew that something good was about to be shown on TV. All the Peanut specials, Rankin & Bass' 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer'... all the TV goodies from a childhood based in the 70s & early 80s North America.

A blast from the not so far away past.

Having worked in On Air Promotion for most of my life, I have a certain fondness for show bumpers and openings but this one is truly special for the memories it evokes.
