This video is part of an ongoing project to build a retrospective TV archive made for the LL community on my Retro TV channel at
Aired from 1965 to 1969 with 104 episodes. The western genre had lost much ground by this time. Spy and sci-fi shows were on the rise. In that light it sort of makes sense that this show had a little of everything, western, espionage, intrigue, sci-fi, beautiful women and comedy. It almost seemed like the producers didn't want to guess which genre to take the show into exactly. Whatever path they took it led to awesomeness. If you love zany bad guys this series is for you, Michael Dunn as Dr. Loveless = epic. A partial list of notable guest stars who played villains on the show - Leslie Nielsen, Martin Landau, Burgess Meredith, Boris Karloff, Ida Lupino, Carroll O'Connor, Ricardo Montalban, Robert Duvall, Ed Asner, and Harvey Korman.
The show is available everywhere you look practically. The DVD collection is a nice piece of work.
Mr Clean commercial, yep that's Marion Ross better known as Mrs Cunningham of Happy Days.
The Linit fabric softener commercial was done by Jim Henson's company, as if you couldn't tell. That's basically Ernie in a can, the character voice I'd say is closest to Henson's Rowlf character. It's interesting to see the genesis of his creations. Henson's unique style of humor comes through in it too. Always loved the Muppets.
The Oscar Meyer commercial. What an unfortunate haircut.
