1. Alka Seltzer TV Commercial - Pie Eating Professionals

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic Alka Seltzer TV Commercial we call The Pie Eating Professionals. It begins with a classic front line of a football team that sprints to a table filled with pies in an eating contest. When the contest is over, the team retreats to the locker room, and instead of a Jacuzzi - and Ben Gay, there's a medicine cabinet with some Alka Seltzer. One of the old timers helps a worn out rookie get some relief from acid indigestion. Coke Commercials Ahhhh. Alka Seltzer cures the upset stomach. And yes - if the commercial feels familiar - it is an obvious tribute to the Mean Joe Green Coke commercial. And in case you were wondering, the other fellow in the commercial is indeed Joe DeRita, a.k.a. Curly Joe - the final third stooge to replace Curly Howard of the Three Stooges. This tv commercial is a true classic, i remember like yesterday! For more info on stomach ailments - go to the source at Alka-Seltzer.com

3. Beat The Devil

Description: Beat the Devil, (1953) was made in the later years of Humphrey Bogart's brilliant acting career. Bogie plays Billy Dannreuther, an opportunist hoping to get rich in Africa. But the treasure in this movie isn't gold, it is land that is rich in uranium deposits. The movie is presented to you in glorious Black and White, and in our view far surpasses Ted Turner's colorized version. The screenplay was written by Truman Capote and John Huston. The movie also stars Gina Lollabrigida, Peter Lorre, Jennifer Jones, and Robert Morley.

4. Bedazzled

Description: Director Stanley Doner's Bedazzled was made in 1967. The story was written by Dudley Moore and Peter Cook.

So he gets a visit from the devil, played by Peter Cook, who tries to tempt him into a life of evil intentions ruined souls. Raquel Welch is stunning as Lillian Lust.

5. Bucket of Blood

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel proudly presents -A Bucket of Blood! This film, a cult classic horror satire by the great Roger Corman, the king of the low budget genre, made this gem in 1959. The film precedes Little Shop of Horrors but is similar in many ways. The hero, or anti-hero is Walter Paisley, a waiter in a Beatnik coffee shop with live Poetry readings, who wants to be an ARTIST, but unfortunately, he has no talent. Great dialogue, very funny, and awesome music with Paul Horn on sax. Cool movie - check it out.

6. Cyrano de Bergerac w/ Jose Ferrer

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - Cyrano de Bergerac, starring Jose Ferrer as Cyrano in the screen adaptation of Edmond Rostand's classic play. Jose Ferrer is nothing short of brilliant in his portrayal as the Cyrano - a gifted poet, wordsmith, swordsman, and a man with a beautiful and tender heart. But with all these gifts - he was also given a monster sized nose, that reminds one of the proboscis monkey - it is huge and hideous, a perfect foil for the lavish gifts he has been given. Cyrano loves a beautiful woman named Roxane, who happens to be a distant cousin, but he is afraid to tell her how he feels about her, because he is afraid of rejection.

The fourth clip in this 7 pack is called Fake News. It opens with the news anchor going to his reporter in the field. The most ironic comedy sketch is the news story - where Mr. Dorset (David Speilberg) And Mrs Dorset (Pamela Guest) win their long legal battle, allowing them to abort their child Timmy, up to their fifth year of life. This one is very funny and highly disturbing. The ending is insane. Ouch!

The ditty goes like this - Ol Ben Lucas, had a lot of mucus coming right out of his nose. And now many years later - sweet Kinky Friedman is running for Governor of Texas. Only in America. Followed by the Frontier Gynecologist - a very silly comedy short. Given the passage of time - the comedy is even more weird than when it first aired.

The war room drama features Dick O'Neil as General Andrews, and Basil Hoffman as a Presidential Advisor, Larry Gelman as Reliff Guy - that is how he spells Relief. I learned it was spelled ROLAIDS. That's what they told me on tv anyway. We ask that everyone of all religions or countries - to please relax. The sentiments echoed in these clips do not mirror our own. The clips are presented as social history - to be examined given the context of two and a half decades of time.

Warren and the show host (Robert Ridgely) climb a tower and shoot their limit on the students below. Yikes! Warren Oates is especially proud of the beefy football letterman he bagged - must be a 280 pounder he boasts. Given all that has happened since this was created, the comedy is kind of creepy too.

The spoof on the laundry detergent Reality Testing was very funny - until she was dead in the dryer. Oh my! Royce D. Applegate is the Miracle White Announcer and Laura Fanny plays the unsuspecting laundry mat customer. The final comedy bit skewering the Is it Live or is it Memorex campaign is very disturbing on a lot of levels.

Followed by a spoof on the Sears DieHard battery, that powers an electric execution. Morning Mist - in two natural fragrances. The Sperm Bank piece is a quite disturbing since science has come a long way and the premise of of deposit as comedy is just creepy.

Young Gerald is a sound effects (FX) wizard - he does all the funky noises for a big radio station. In a classic case of cost cutting, the manager decides to have Gerald also do the symphony orchestra -which is a great idea till he drops the sheet music, and gets it mixed up with his sound fx script for a radio show. This creates some ver crazy music, honk, honk, lala, BAM.. crash. etc etc. Some very interesting animation techniques, a good story line, and loads of good clean fun! A VERY COOL toon - check it out.

15. Hysterical History

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Cartoon channel proudly presents - Hysterical History, a classic toon from that pokes fun at some characters from history, including Columbus, Ben Franklin flying a kite with his key, a plump Pocahontas that bears little resemblence to the young Indian lass from the recent Disney production. Like many other cartoons from the era, this one contains racial stereotyping that is often offensive to some viewers. Our apologies, we present it as a piece of history. Plus - oh...I am a Yankee doodle dandy... sing-a-long to the bouncing ball number.

18. Mild West, The

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Cartoon channel proudly presents - The Mild West, a silly comedy about the untamed wild west. Not to be confused with my favorite show (or one of them anyway) The Wild, Wild West with Robert Conrad as James West, secret service agent. Still, this cartoon is just as politically incorrect and tons of fun. Like many other cartoons from the era, this one contains racial stereotyping that is often offensive to some viewers. Our apologies, we present it as a piece of history. Also features I am an old cowhand sing-a-long.

19. My Man Godfrey

20. New Country Cornflakes TV Commercial

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic General Mills TV Commercial for New Country Cornflakes. New Country - like Shania Twain you ask? No. This is not Kelloggs Corn Flakes...The Battle Creek company, this is a cereal from General Mils. The commerical features a snappy jingle (that kinda sounds like New Country - HA!) and a goof on the classic painting American Gothic by Grant Wood - that features the farmer and his wife hooting and dancing for their breakfast cereal. A funny classic commercial.

21. Reefer Madness

22. Rules of the Game, The

Description: Jean Renoir's Rules of the Game is one of the greatest films ever made. As you might already know, Jean Renoir was the son of the remarkable impressionist painter, Auguste Renoir - whose paintings are so beautiful and glorious that they are actually worth the millions that they sell for today. This film is perhaps Jean Renoir's finest work, though some might prefer his other masterpiece, La Grande Illusion, also available on this site. Unlike Grande Illusion that is a heavy film about the tragic ironies of war, this film is hilarious satire about the fading French aristocracy and a wonderful portrayal of the human comedy of love, marriage, and relationships.
