    Someone posted the attached photos on a Facebook pinball page. The episode was number 1541. Does anyone have a link to a video of the entire program?

    "Herb Jones was a Bally advertising manager, vice president, and producer of the company booklet, "Coin Operated Amusement - An Historical and Technological Study."

    Well, it's great to see Nip-It on a 1970s TV show where it's time-appropriate!

    Ballyhoo, Bally's first pinball product. https://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=4817 (Note that production quantity!)

    Yes. Some seem to think Addams Family had the largest production run. I see it all the time.

    And there is really no guarantee Ballhoo didn't sell more than 50,000 units or that another title didn't sell even more.

    Expressway?

    Popular, kinda rare title from 1971. That was about the time Bally started hitting it's stride with flipper games. By the end of the decade, they would dominate the industry. It was neat being a kid then watching as they dropped each new one down. The latest Ballys always seemed the most modern, and drew the biggest crowds, at least here.
