Audio not that great... and neither is the camera work at all. But enjoy :)

CBS technicians were on strike between November 3, 1972, and early January 1973. Managers and secretaries operated the cameras and other technical equipment during those eight weeks.

It didn't "get by" him.  Bob didn't become interested in animal rights until 1979, and this episode is from 1972.

As a matter of fact, the very first item up for bids on the very first show back in 1972 was a fur coat.

And this wasn't the only time live animals were offered as prizes.  There was a 1974 show where an actual real live pony was the item up for bids.

I guess my point was, the episode that's linked has a "Game Show Network" bug in the lower left-hand corner, and while this episode didn't have a fur coat in it, it did offer an animal, which I thought Bob was opposed to ... even if that didn't happen until years after this episode originally aired.

I thought the idea behind Barker excluding certain episodes from rebroadcast was that the shows had to have nothing to do with animals whatsoever ... meaning, fur coats, leather and live animals as prizes, to make it appear as though he had always been an animal rights supporter (even though that wasn't always the case) and that newer-day fans would become confused that he at one time had no problem offering fur coats, luxury cars with leather interiors, etc., as prizes.

I sure hope that someday we can enjoy these episodes again and that the ban will be allowed to expire or relaxed. (Same with other episodes that are supposedly on Barker's "ban list.")  When or if that happens is up for speculation.

What is ironic is that, right up until Bob's last season, they continued to offer cars with seats featuring "quality natural coverings." While I am guessing you could easily buy a Corvette or Porsche 911 with cloth or vinyl seats around the time of the fur ban (Brian, as a car buff, you would likely know this better than me), this would have been virtually unheard of by 2007. (Someone mentioned here that Bob always had to custom order his Lincolns without leather seats.)

I can't speak for all years, but I do know that at least in the early years of the 1984-generation Chevrolet Corvette cloth seats were standard and two types of leather (a "standard" leather and a "sport" leather) were optional.

There are places you can check, but without looking, I do think that Cadillac did offer cloth as a deduct option/no-cost substitution for customers who did not want the standard leather upholstery.

Anyhow, that's my two cents worth.

Also an addendum to my comment about no animals whatsoever: This, of course, excluded the plugs for the Los Angeles County Animal Shelter and the puppies/kittens shown during those IFUB segments.

A pony for a prize...I didn't even know about that one. :)
