Ha, ha! Excellent, Mark, although I did supply the setup line. .
My dad bought our first colour set around 1966 (there was about a 10-year delay in colour broadcasting coming to Canada). It was a 27-inch RCA hybrid "console", part solid-state and part vacuum-tube (in addition to the cathode-ray-tube display) and it proved to be pretty reliable for years. I don't recall the colours fading on that set but I was off on my own and not living at home.
