1967 ABC television network promo
This 1967 promo from ABC is hosted by their then top stars Batman and Robin. The networks used to do this in late summer or early fall for their network and Saturday morning lineups. The two I have the best memories of are this one and a Staurday morning one that was hosted by the kids of the Brady Bunch. Their own cartoon show was starting that season.
Here is the prime time promo for the ABC line up for 1967. A special guest shows up at the time. A big star getting his own variety show again. He is told how long his contract is but saddly the show was canceled long before the contract ended. Batman one year later would also be canceled. Fame is fleeting.
