In the 70s Bigfoot was all that and a bag of chips. Many sightings reported and many movies and documentaries were made. The In Search Of Bigfoot episode is what most Bigfoot researchers claimed started them on this path.
But it was just documentaries that he starred in, he was a cash cow, the used the band Kiss’s marketing plan and put him on everything and everywhere.
So I thought I’d start a little Bigfoot of the 70s series and bring us all back in time. For this first in the series. I stumbled on a TV Guide listing of himself starring in an episode of Six Million Dollar Man. It will bring back all the love and nostalgia you have just reading it
He was in three episodes, one episode starring Andre The Giant! Too cool, am I right? The remaining played by Ted Cassidy, Lurch from The Addams Family, which is almost as good). I’m sure if you were watching back then it was absolutely epic! Look at all the wonderful company he was listed with.
Season three episode 16, the two part episode titled, The Secret of Bigfoot is thought to be the most popular one. And eventually inspired a book of the same title and lots of merchandise. If you own the Bigfoot action figure from the show, then you are envied by all. Including me.
This two-part episode was released as a theatrical film in many parts of Europe, North America (Mexico), and South America as well, it was truly loved by the world over.
The best thing is you can still watch it today! A tip from a follower told me that you can watch them on the NBC APP. Here is the link if you’d like to travel back in time to when everyone had long hair and sideburns and you tripped over the hem of everyone’s bell bottoms…
