How Bad Do You Miss Uncle Leonard?

Categories: Bidness
This week's feature, "Pitch Sessions," revisits the quirky, self-produced local TV ads from the 1980s and 90s.



Not only do I remember Uncle Leonard Lewis' corny one-liners on TV: I once spotted him at the Arena in between periods of a Blues Game. My dad let me go talk to him. I can't recall the dialogue. Nor can I fathom what a nine-year-old would want to communicate to this man. But I remember him being cool about the whole thing.



By the way, these two spots were the only ones we could dig up on YouTube.

If you can find any others, feel free to post the links in the comments (there's definitely one out there with Brett Hull).

Yep, Uncle Leonard and Schweig Engel. Time Capsules of when St. Louis's "Old School" jews still had to pitch their own products. Now this is just another place where the tribe completely runs this town and look at it. They're all shacking it up in Ladue and Clayton and the place has gone to hell, places closing up all over, all run down, no jobs....

The TV pitch man I miss the most is the very funny bald headed man who did the Shoney's commercials..he also did some other commercials but his Shoney commercials were the funniest.
