1970's Christmas Shows
MOMENTS FROM CHRISTMAS TV SHOWS OF THE 1970s
by Billy Ingram

I went You Tubing to collect clips from cartoons, sitcoms & variety shows of the 1970s, television yuletide joy sure to catapult you back in time...


In 1970, The Town that Forgot Christmas animated special aired, based on the best-selling children's book. It's the story of a village woodcarver that had forgotten about Christmas. When he taught the uncaring children of the town about the birth of Jesus, they were filled with the joy of Christ; featured the voices of Sebastian Cabot, Charles Nelson Reilly, and Louis Nye.

Arnie was a CBS sitcom about a working class guy who gets kicked up to manaement. It lasted two seasons, here's the first part of the Christmas episode in 1971, the show's second season - note the groovy, pepped up theme song.

 

Many people don't remember Dick Van Dyke's variety show on NBC, Van Dyke and Company, that aired in the fall of 1976. The series failed to catch on but the production introduced Andy Kaufman to primetime. Producers Bob Einstein and Allan Blye were smart enough to let Andy be Andy - here he breaks out his Elvis imitation for the first time. Andy Kaufman became a sensation on Saturday Nite Live a year earlier but this was Dick Van Dyke's next to last night of singing and dancing on NBC.

Every kid growing up in the 1970s probably remembers the Norelco Santa, here's a commercial from 1978.

Meco had a line of toys based on superheroes but they also offered a Star Trek Communicator in the early-1970s.

A 1977 NBC Big Event brought the cast of one of the most beloved sitcoms (from 20 years ealier) together one more time for a Christmas celebration, Father Knows Best: Home for Christmas.

Following that special, Dean Martin celebrated Christmas in California, his second holiday outing with that theme.

Burger King commercial for their fifty cent gift certificates, a popular idea that was relatively new at the time.

Scotch Magic Transparent Tape was a game changer, especially around the Holiday season. The Invisible Man was the product spokesperson in the '70s.

Kodak was a big advertiser on TV at Christmas, they spent a lot of money and creativity on their yearly tug at the heart. They almost guilted you into buying their products - Christmas will be gone soon!

Underoos were introduced in the late-1970s and they stayed popular through the next decade thanks to tie-ins like DC and Marvel comics characters' inspired undies.

Coke Christmas ads

In the 1970s nostalgia was big - so Coke issued a series of trays with reproductions of their iconic Santa magazine ads from decades gone by. Also seen under the Chistmas trees in the seventies: a reprint of the 1927 Sears Wish Book catalog.

Stay tuned for more 1970's Christmas TV moments!
