The Full Color Network-NBC

We watched a lot of NBC series in 1967 in spite of the fact that everything was still in black and white to us until late '68. 

Whether or not we watched WALT DISNEY'S WONDERFUL WORLD OF COLOR depended very much on what that week's episode was. The rest of the Sunday night lineup was always NBC unless a particularly good movie was on ABC.

On Monday nights we often watched THE MONKEES and THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. but not regularly. We never watched I SPY and rarely DANNY THOMAS.

On Tuesdays, JEANNIE was a must but not so much the rest.

Wednesdays and Thursdays we were over at ABC for BATMAN but we'd often get back to NBC for the KRAFT MUSIC HALL, IRONSIDE, DRAGNET and Dino.

TARZAN and STAR TREK were, surprisingly, only occasional stops on Friday. What the heck was CHICK-CHICK?

On Saturdays, I never saw an episode of MAYA but if nothing was on the other networks, we would catch GET SMART.

  1. This is an interesting relic from the early days of color television. I never heard of a network printing their schedule on a postcard.

    This is also only the second place I've seen the NBC Snake and the peacock used together. The only other place was on the NBC Games board game series from the late 60s.
