Happy the Clown

On September 10, 1998, WPVI, Channel 6 in Philadelphia, aired their 50th anniversary broadcast. Part of that program had two excerpts of commercials. The first one had Happy the Clown (Broadcast Pioneers member Howard Jones) talking about Bosco. The second one had Phil Sheridan speaking about Virginia Lee Bakery Treasures from Acme. Both date from the late fifties when the station was WFIL-TV and owned by the Philadelphia Inquirer.
