We love TV Classics. We are talking about the shows that pioneered television as a medium and created the cultural backdrop for the baby boomer generation. Although television existed in the late 1920s it wasn’t until the world’s fair of 1939 when RCA introduced the NBC studios at Rockefeller Plaza that radio listeners took it seriously. The early days of the late 1940s introduced the Ed Sullivan Show, Candid Camera, Howdy Doody and Kukla Fran and Ollie.
We are mostly focused on the mid sixties to the 1970s for our Favorites but that is just a reflection of the age and preferences of some of us who acquire and plan our list. We are always open to new ideas.
So far we are fortunate to have our first book “Lost (and Found) in Space” by Angela Cartwright and Bill Mumy that was published in time for the show’s 50th anniversary. This book is a must have for Lost in Space fans. It contains behind-the-scenes images and memories shared by the two youngest members of the cast. We also have a book by Butch Patrick called “Munster Memories: a Mini Coffin Table Book.” That is an extraordinary pictorial look at the Munsters also in time for the 50th anniversary of that show. We are about to release some vintage reprints of Irwin Allen Classics. We have a Lost in Space Novel, A Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea Novel and will be releasing a spectacular Lost in Space Graphic Novel with a forward from the inimitable Stan Lee. So stay tuned.
Oh, and one more thing on the horizon. For Donna Reed Fans we will have an Anniversary book in time for the 60th Anniversary of that show complete with memories and essays shared by Paul Petersen aka Jeff Stone. Check back often for the best in TV Classics.
