Family Classics is a Chicago television series which began in 1962 when Frazier Thomas was added to another program at WGN-TV . Thomas not only hosted classic films, but also selected the titles and personally edited them to remove those scenes which he thought were not fit for family viewing. [3] After Thomas' death in 1985, Roy Leonard took over the program. [4] The series continued sporadically until its initial cancellation in 2000. [4] [5] A few props from the Family Classics set are on exhibit at Chicago's Museum of Broadcast Communications . [6] [7]

On November 10, 2017, WGN announced that Family Classics would be returning as a one-night special after a 17-year hiatus with a presentation of the 1951 version of Scrooge to air on Friday, December 8, 2017, with a rebroadcast to follow on December 24th. WGN further announced that its longtime entertainment reporter, Dean Richards , would be the host. [8]

In 1962, Fred Silverman , then a WGN-TV executive, conceived the idea of the show by scheduling classic family films at a prime time Friday night position rather than a late show slot where children wouldn't see them. The show was a huge ratings success and inspired the networks to schedule recently released films in prime time. When the networks began showing first run films in prime time, the show was rescheduled to Sunday afternoons. [3] [6]

Thanks for your comments, Smokie. I have no idea who wrote the theme song but it is one of those themes, that if you grew up watching Family Classics and listening to that theme, it is hard to get out of your mind.

You’re looking for the 1938 “A Christmas Carol” with Reginald Owen as Scrooge, which was the version Frazier Thomas showed on “Family Classics.”

Some of you posted asking about the movie Snowfire. I grew up watching Frazier Thomas until I moved out of state in 73. I still miss that show. At any rate I am trying to remember what that movie is about. Could someone post a quick synopsis, please.

Here are some attractions that the whole family will love! They are favorites among all park goers, from the youngest fan to the oldest enthusiast. There’s something for everybody to enjoy together!

A true family favorite, take a ride on one of 30 Ninja bumper cars. Show off your driving skills and avoid those head-on collisions!

Board for a ride and climb to over 100’ in the air on our giant gondola wheel. Breathtaking views of the Waldameer, Presque Isle and the bay. Look across Lake Erie and you may even see the shores of Canada!

A delightful cautionary tale about the pitfalls of greed and excess among modern children. Gene Wilder is Willy Wonka, the quirky candy maker from the Roald Dahl book, who seems oddly unconcerned when children on a tour of his magical factory meet with very satisfactory accidents brought on by their own greed, selfishness and bad manners. With silly songs and amazing set designs, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the 1971 original, is subversive kid lit for the whole family.

Screwball comedy with Cary Grant discovering that his beloved aunts have been dispensing poisoned elderberry wine to elderly gentlemen who come to their rooming house, and sending them peacefully to the hereafter. Dear nephew Teddy conveniently believes he's Teddy Roosevelt, and buries the victims in his Panama Canal (the basement). As Cary notes, "Insanity doesn’t run in my family. It gallops!" Based on a hugely successful stage play, it’s about as frothy and fun as multiple murders get.

Jack Lemmon in the bittersweet tale of an office nebbish who lends his bachelor apartment out to his married superiors for their illicit trysts, in hopes of getting ahead in the firm. Mostly what he gets is a nasty cold from waiting in the rain outside his own apartment, and a nasty shock when he realizes his oily boss is messing with the elevator operator he's falling for himself (Shirley MacLaine). Billy Wilder wrote and directed this funny, sad and tender movie, and Lemmon is perfect in The Apartment , a film that might have faltered in the hands of lesser talents.
