Who was that little yellow man painted on the side of the glass?

I saw this on here like two years ago but I can't find it now. Anyway, I'm trying to remember the name of these little television spots (it may have been a full show, but I don't thinks so) that featured a little yellow man painted on the side of a glass. It was for children. Anyone?

What was this ABC's staff announcer's name?

There was a staff announcer that did ABC promos (and newscast intros for affiliates) in the 1970s-80s-90s. He also appeared (in sample form) on the Beatmasters remix of Depeche Mode's "Route 66." He had this distinctive baritone, and it's bugging me that I can't figure out his name. Sound samples included. [more inside]

TVWoP recaplets?

Are there archives of Television without Pity's initial smaller recaplets anywhere? I can only seem to find archives of their full multi-page recaps, but I'd enjoy going back and reading through an entire season of something using the smaller recaplets.

Fix My HD-Out on My Graphics Card

I just bought a new graphics card. The only thing I need it to do is to output my computer display to a television. To this effect, the card has three output options: (1) RCA, (2) S-video, (3) HD (red, blue and green cord). The first two options work great. The third, which is the one I'm really jonesing for, doesn't. What appears on the TV through the HD-out is all wonky and strange -- I can sort of make out stuff, but just barely. Any ideas as to how to get this up and running? I'm on XP (Home Edition), and here is the TV I'm using.

Why use single-camera mode when shooting television?

What, from the standpoint of the audience, is the difference/advantage between shooting, say, a sitcom, in single-camera mode (SCM) and multiple-camera mode (MCM)? If all you're doing in SCM is shooting dialogue, for example, out-of-order to construct an effect that is effortlessly achieved by switching from one camera to the next in MCM, it would seem that, if anything, you would gain from the immediacy of the actors' reaction in a scene shot in MCM.
