Sunday Video Sifter: Onomatopœiac Kitchen Solidarity Edition

Today’s Sunday Sifter holds futuristic fashion predictions from the 1930s, a disturbing commercial for “Lionel Kiddie City” toy store and its selection of noisy videogames, two industrial films (in one ‘tube) from the ’50s showcasing a Frigidare kitchen of the future that provokes a snappy dance number, and a story about Solidarity TV, a group of Polish astronomers who in 1985 built their own TV transmission equipment and superimposed political messages over official state TV broadcasts.

Happy Easter, if you observe, and happy lazy Sunday if you do not!

    At least they didn’t think we’d all be wearing togas or caftans.

    I remember that Kiddie City ad. With the father and son, I think the sounds cited are from Centipede and Contra, respectively. But abject terror of this spot may be impairing my judgment.
