TV Guide ABC All-Star Saturday ad (1978)


Back when Saturday morning television cartoons were still an important part of a child’s routine full page ads in issues of TV Guide were common.

This is an ad for the ABC All-Star Saturday line-up from the issue of TV Guide for the week of September, 23, 1978.  First up at 6:30 am (wow… that’s early) Scooby Doo, Where Are You? was on the air.  Next was the wacky werewolf Fangface at 7 am.  At 7:30 am, the members of the Justice League battle the Legion of Doom on Challenge of the Superfriends.  At 8:30 am it’s Scooby’s All-Stars followed by the All-New Pink Panther Show.

Something to note: In this ad the Justice League is called the “League of Justice”  I’m assuming that whoever wrote the copy for this ad wanted to match it up with the noun order of “Legion of Doom”.
