Are You Going To Let The Fox Weekend Pass You By?

Wow, Matthew Perry certainly looked very young in this 1987 Fox TV promo. I wonder though…how many of these shows made it more than a season? The Tracey Ullman Show. Married With Children. 21 Jump Street.

Thanks to apotheounSTK for posting this over on YouTube!

Were they the only network shows to make it?

  1. Wow – That is just awesome! Love old promos where they get “the gang” together like this. And hey, the guy from Wolfman was there, John J. York, who went on to play Mac on General Hospital for what – 20 years now? Awesome post!

  2. Joe, thanks for the kind words! :)

    I truly cannot recall all of those earlier shows though. If anyone can remember them all…let us know.

    One is Duet (the rodeo drive lady), one is Boys Will Be Boys (Matthew Perry), one is Women In Prison, another is Werewolf, add in Married With Children, Tracey Ullman, and 21 Jump Street, that might be it, or at least all I can identify.
