“World of Magic 1981”-TV Guide Ad

World of Magic-Osmond Schroeder

It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means? It’s time for an awkwardly staged “TV Guide” advertisement with Doug, Marie Osmond, and Ricky Schroeder. Hey, but all things are forgiven when it comes to “TV Guide!” 

These kinds of ads really drive home how much of an event Doug’s specials were, and what they meant to the television viewing public of the time. In these complicated days of streaming television and cell phones, how many of you long for a simpler time of opening up a “TV Guide,” and circling what you want to watch for that week?

Special Thanks to Pesci Sutta
