Let's take a trip back in television history once again. This time, it's 1979 and....Heeeeeeeeerrrrrreeeeee's JOHNNY!
A fresh new slice of apple pie and steaming pile of... man, 70's cars were ugly.
Not sure who this model is. I don't think it's Erin Gray.
That headline alone was enough to get the hearts of conspiracy theorists racing.
This is a nice slice of 70's St. Louis store logos. I think of these, all that's left is Wal-mart, Walgreens, Schnucks, Dierbergs and K-Mart (barely).
Is that 40 pounds of trouble poured into 30 pounds of trouble capacity pants?
"Curse of Bigfoot" was actually a movie from 1963 with additional footage shot for its 1976 release and has nothing to do with bigfoot, but rather an Aztec mummy. By 1976, mummies were out and Bigfoot was in, so additional footage was shot with 2 of the original actors from 1963 telling the story. You can watch the full movie on Youtube if you care to.
I recall when NBC tried to recapture the radio days of the 30's and 40's. Even back then I was into that era and tried to listen. Unfortunately, if I recall correctly, the episodes they chose weren't very good.
How nice of Skoal to offer some entry level chewing tobacco. For free! And way to ride on the popularity of the TV show of the same name.
Based on his face, David Jansen might need just a little more warning next time.
Starting with Fonzie Jumping the Garbage Cans in Season 3 of Happy Days (1975), the producers of the show decided it was good for ratings to have Fonzie put himself in harms way. In 1977 was the infamous jumping the shark episode. The episode on this Tuesday night, although it was a repeat, was Fonzie Rides the Bull. Things had gone all country in the United States in the late '70's and riding bulls was in. If Fonzie had never jumped the shark, the expression for the moment a television show starts going downhill would be "Riding the Bull".
Everyone knows daises are the international symbol for greater accuracy.
When you look through these old TV Guides, you realize how insecure people were. Every ad is either a baldness cure or weight loss. These days men embrace baldness and based on my last trip to Wal-mart, nobody cares too much about weight loss.
Chin kissing?! In a family magazine?! Scandalous!!!
Gee, I hate to end the post on such a negative comment, but here we are. See you next time!
