TV Close-Ups by Peggy Herz, special Arrow edition of TV People. Scholastic TX 3028, 1975.

This is my first of several years of books on TV. I’ll be posting them over the next week or so. They’re pretty interesting to look back at. This is a kid’s version of the book TV People. They have Radar from M*A*S*H and Michael Landon from Little House on the Prairie, then Darren McGavin in the Night Stalker? I suppose a lot of kids watched it which may explain Generation X. And Rhoda, which I wasn’t allowed to watch.

What surprises me after showing my 3 books on Fonzie, all these books between 1975 and 1980 and only one talks about Henry Winkler and this one talks about Happy Days.

Does anyone remember Patti Cahoon and Apple’s Way? I sure don’t. Others are Freddie Prinze and Chico and the Man, the fabulous Kurt Russell in New Land (another I don’t remember), Clifton Davis That’s My Mama, Angie Dickinson and Police Woman, Richard Thomas of the Waltons (I wasn’t allowed to watch this one either. Actually my Dad hated the show so we never watched it), and Roddy McDowall in the TV show Planet of the Apes.

  1. Apple’s Way was a warm and fuzzy Walton’s rip-off, set in the present day. It starred Ronny Cox, who was the first good guy to get whacked in Deliverence. I don’t remember New Land or That’s My Momma


  2. Are you going to scan any of the articles here? If not, is there ANY way I can get a scan of the piece on Roddy McDowall? I can’t believe I DON’T have this book!!!



    1. Julie, I have it at the flea market right now, but I’ll get it and scan the Roddy McDowall article for you. It might be a few days before I can get to it. Or you can buy the book from me for $5. Send an email to mrpontiac at yahoo dot com if you’re interested in that.
