Classic Ads from the September 16, 1978 Issue of TV Guide

Recently I found a stack of musty old TV guides and brought them home. I miss the old format, the digest size which hasn’t been around now for several years. So I thought I would share a few of the best ads found inside this issue from the week of September 16, 1978. First we have the cover, featuring a brand new show called Battlestar Galactica.

Next is an advertisement for the world tv premiere of the movie King Kong!

How about the cool Saturday morning cartoon ads like this one.

I love those old school disaster films and was always glued to the set for offerings like this!

And finally, an advertisement for some new fangled tv game from a company named Atari.


I love retro toys, television, movies and just about anything from the 70s and 80s.I frequent flea markets, thrift shops, garage sales and auctions hoping to nab my next pop culture trophy.
