After watching Bixby play Banner on “The Incredible Hulk”, traveling the country and trying to do good for all those years, I could not help but come to associate him with a certain amount of integrity. So I am sort of surprised he was not more widely used as a spokesperson for products. One company that did use him was Radio Shack, who featured him in a campaign for their line of computers.
I never owned a Tandy, but I did play with them often when I was at the Radio Shack at the mall and I did find Bixby’s pitch pretty compelling. Sadly I didn’t control the money in our house, so the decision of what sort of computer we got went to those who did not appreciate Bixby as much as I do.
