5 Day Business Planner backdrop from 1990

Does anyone remember the 5 Day Business Planner backdrop, circa 1990? The one with the woman wearing glasses, sitting at her desk with her briefcase and talking on the phone.

I don't (since I didn't discover the channel until '92), but Charles does. The woman always scared him. Probably why she was removed after a few days. :lol:

You can see silhouettes of her eyes if you sit far enough away from her.  :lol:

I remember on the twc classics site back in late 2006, early 2007, a video of the promo featuring that and there was a caption that said, "the drawing of the women always freaked Chazz out."

That was also used in the commercial in 1990.

The odd thing is that the woman was removed from the title card after a few days, but she remained in the ad. I assume cost was an issue.

She spilled her coffee in the briefcase, ruining important documents....all while on the phone talking to her homegirls.  :rofl:

As I was born in '90, I don't really know much of TWC from that year. I first discovered it in '99. Hence why I remember the first version of the XL.
