I thought the "Cheer" alien looked and sounded more Romulan than Vulcan...
He does remind me a bit of "Sub-Commader Tal" from "The Enterprise Incident". I know; I know; different actors, but everybody's facial recognition capabilities vary somewhat, and that's just what I see.
Yes I agree I thought he was Romulan - perhaps its his outfit or his curt manner.
And it was On this date in 1967 That Carol Burnett met Mr. Spock.
Finding an original TOS film print with original commercials would be extremely rare. The commercials were either broadcast separately in a studio's film chain (also called a film island or a telecine island) -- such as recalled by this gentleman -- or spliced in the print and then removed after broadcast such as described in this link (about 1/3 down the page). Either way, the commercials were generally not in the print after broadcast.
I have a few Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea episodes with original commercials from 16mm which are always fun.
I edited the YouTube commercials into a VHS print of Space Seed and saved it on a DVD-R and digital file for a nice recreation of the repeat broadcast.
Makes me wonder why there are so many prints of shows that do have commercials in them. I've found them in Ozzy and Harriet, game shows, music variety shows, and Petticoat Junction.
I will probably be really ridiculous and stitch in period commercials for when I do the group watchings starting in September '66.. er... 21.
Define "so many". One per each of those shows?
And are these original film prints? Or something that might be found on YouTube?
These are all shows I've found on YouTube (except for Petticoat Junction, which includes commercials with select episodes on the DVDs). I'd say a good quarter or third of them have original commercials in them (2-3 per half hour). It may be because they tended to be dedicated sponsor shows so the ads were bundled with them. "The Adventures of Ozzy and Harriet are brought to you buy...your local gas company!"
I have a nice handful of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea episodes with original commercials. The Steve Canyon DVDs have them also.
