The Museum of Classic Chicago Television (also known as FuzzyMemories.TV) is an online museum dedicated to the preservation of Chicago television broadcasts. Most of the museum's footage originates from "airchecks" of local Chicago channels (and to a lesser extent other cities) that were recorded primarily in the 1970s and 1980s. The registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation displays on its website more than 4000 clips of commercials, news broadcasts, PSAs, bumpers, obscure specials, moments of technical difficulties and other off-air recording excerpts, as well as occasional master tapes donated by former television employees.

On March 17, 2011, the museum announced that it had discovered lost footage of Garfield Goose and Friends and previewed it on its website.[1]

On September 15, 2011, the museum announced that it had discovered and transferred long-lost footage of the original Svengoolie program and subsequently displayed the missing episodes on its website the following Monday.[2]

On November 27, 2012, WGN-TV announced that it would air a 1971 tape of Bozo's Circus that was recovered with the help of the museum on that year's Christmas Day.[3]

In 2013 the site uploaded "Fahey Flynn Presents Seven's Greetings," a one-hour special that aired just once, in 1972.[4]

In 2018 the site unearthed a rare color kinescope of a 1971 newscast on WLS-Channel 7, featuring Fahey Flynn, Joel Daly and meteorologist John Coleman.[5]
