TV Guide Ads: The Latest Technology

DuMont wasn't just a failed television network, it also was a failed television manufacturer that stooped to running ads insinuating that Betty Hutton would give you a lap dance if you bought one.

Motorola used to make televisions. Televisions that would make your kids smarter!

Put down those books, kids and watch some of that 'tele-vision'!

Literally the Cadillac of VCRs.
