    Yup, WNEW after school....this ad just felt like Christmas to me. I never saw it in color until I was an adult.

    I have Stay Alive now and I clearly remember the commercial w/ the kids. I also have Hangman now, and I loved the bank commercial w/ Vincent Price.

    Lastly, the Bionic Woman Beauty Salon. I got the doll for my 11th birthday in 1977 and got the salon Christmas that same year.

    Those Vincent Price commercials are the best. He could make Tilex interesting.


    I don't remember seeing the commercials when they first aired but my older sister had a couple of the Crissy dolls.

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    I had Crissy when I was a kid as well. Now I have 3 Crissys, Kerry, Velvet and Mia as well.
