Jack Davis Does Disney
Over at the News From ME blog a few weeks back, Mark Evanier posted about ad art created by the great Jack Davis for the NBC TV season of 1965-1966. In piecing together the incredible TV Guide mural that covered all seven nights of "living color" programming, Sunday was inadvertently left out but was included here at the TV Series Finale blog. To add to the Davis delights, here's the matching Sunday night ad from TV Guide the night of September 26, 1965. Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color was of course included ("In color, of course"). (Click on the images for a larger view.) Note that on that particular Sunday night, two weeks into the new season, Walt Disney was presenting Part 1 of "The Further Adventures of Gallegher," the follow-up to the previous season's highly-rated and critically-acclaimed "Gallegher," that I have mentioned here before. There will be more about "Gallegher" here soon, so check back to Tulgey Wood for some headline-worthy news about Walt Disney's forgotten TV classic.
