Video of the Week: ABC promos, 1977

Videos featuring Timothy that we haven’t posted yet are getting harder to find, unfortunately. This week’s video isn’t up to our usual standards, but it’s a bit of television history that we don’t get to see much anymore. This is a promo that ABC ran for its Wednesday night line-up on January 19, 1977. At about 0:41 in we can catch a glimpse of Tim as El Greco in the Baretta episode “That Sister Ain’t No Cousin,” which first aired that very same evening.

The promo is narrated by the great Ernie Anderson, staff announcer supreme at ABC for many years. He became famous as Cleveland’s legendary late-night horror host Ghoulardi in the 1960s.
