1965 WKBW New York The SUPERMAN SHOW Commander Tom Jolls On Air Graphic DC Rare
Offered here is an extremely rare item. In 1965, a young weatherman from New York named Tom Jolls began hosting a kids show called, "The Commander Tom" show. It was aired around "The Superman Show" which aired the 1950's live action "The Adventures of Superman" with the late, George Reeves. Commander Tom was a huge hit which Tom Jolls hosted until he retired, in 1991.

This listing is for the " Superman Show" PRODUCTION SLIDE that was used on the air by WKBW in Buffalo, New York. The 35mm still is encased in acrylic and metal for production use when the show aired. It weighs several times more than a typical slide and will last forever. The last picture shows a vintage WKBW station ad featuring Tom Jolls and is not included or for sale: It's just for reference.

Pic #3 is what it looks like projected. WKBW's current creative director (who is also the archivist) confirmed that this would have been used for commercial breaks or upcoming announcements. Remember, this was before special effects generators so the slide would be projected with a voice-over in the background when they went to a commercial or were announcing to the viewers to stay tuned for that day's episode.

It is marked with production stickers (BR = Commercial Break) for inventory and besides a few light marks is in Very Fine condition. Be sure to add me to your favorites list.
