I always assumed BCF was named for Burlington, Vermont.

Is that white building really the original location?

Glad to see someone else besides me using a screenshot from Google Maps Street View for a change.



Yeah, that sad vacant cold building on the left. This older photo, this is what I recall...no fancy signs. Just the name spray pained on the walls. 

I always use Google Street view for reference, especially when giving directions. Big smile Far easier (I hope) for the person.

Yep, that's what she said.  She's holding up a holiday-decorated tray and gravy boat though, so I guess it's for the Christmas dinner.

Whussup wit dat stupid whistling thing you hear right at the end of them, too?

I guess it's supposed to make us feel whimsical and cutesy-wootsey.

The last time I was in a Burlington COAT FACTORY it felt like being in any other cheap, crappy discount store. Like Beall's or Ross or even Kmart.

I didn't feel whimsical at all.

I just wanted to GTF outta there.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

That 45° angled heart that's supposed to look like the letter B really just looks like a bent-over booty.

Yeah, I remember a lot of the goofy, innovative stuff he used to do like crushing things in a hydraulic press...



...dropping stuff off the roof of the building and so on.



One day he rented a diesel locomotive engine and ran into things with it like several big burlap bags of flour, a glass shelf full of glass items, cans of different colored paint, etc, etc.

I think he did that more than once. Here's another episode...



Oh yeah, and crushing things with a steamroller...



Those were the great days of late night TV.

It all sucks now.

I still remember "Will It Float?" Letterman was a good host to watch to get over fears about the future!

Absolutely!!!

I hope they start doing weeknight reruns of Letterman soon.

I'd love to be able to look forward to watching Dave again every night.

I remember his show was in reruns during the daytime for awhile.

If you look closely you'll see that your YouTube video is the exact same episode the pic I posted is from.

Check Ed's clothes.

Weird, huh?

I came up with that name way back in 2006 when it still had "Coat Factory" in its name. This when they first opened at Waterbury's Brass Mill Center Mall. I was disappointed when I didn't see an actual cost factory in there!

I doubt they give a crap about the quality of the commercials that run on their network.

As long as the advertisers' money is green and plentiful, they're happy.

You'd think that a broadcast powerhouse like ABC/Disney would be able to attract a bigger variety of sponsors and higher quality commercials.  BUT NO!!!  It the same old BS over and over again. Angry
