Around this time every year the big 3 TV networks placed 2 page ads for their Saturday morning shows in the comic books. This ad is from 1972. It starts with shows that were classic TV even by that time. Underdog, Pink Panther and the Jetsons. The rest are shows I barely remember. I did watch the Roman Holidays from time to time. The same for Sealab 2020. (We're almost there now aren't we.) The Barkleys is an obvious try at making All in the Family a cartoon series. Around the World in 80 Days was a show that I liked and wish it would be available on DVD. Those that I haven't mentioned are because I don't remember them at all. As you can see today is the anniversary of the day these shows were to premiere on the air. So Happy Anniversary to the Terrific Ten!
