[Via] The Retroist :

 

Tremble before the analytical might of the Zenith System 3 you small-brained humans. It’s single chip of processing power makes all those who behold it tremble. You with your feeble flesh brains are naught but mindless slaves to the will of the System 3. Bow down before your new overlord and be grateful for “Perfect Strangers” is about to start and it is that episode where they make bibbi babka and sing that great song and you will watch it on the pinnacle of technological perfection.

I loved Zenith Brand, my first VCR was a Zentih BETA machine, now even back then I opened it up to see mostly SONY parts but man it was a solid machine with great performance, wherever they got the products manufactured I was never disappointed with anything with the Zentih logo.

I believe Zenith televisions were manufactured in Glenview, Illinois!

I think I recall Magnavox salespeople used to imply the Odyssey 2 would only work on their TV's!

haha that's true! Video games were brand new, a lot of customers thought it was a Magnavox TV accessory for Magnavox television sets!

This thread actually had me on Craigslist looking for a wood encased console tv. The missus would just love that....
