Jon's Random Acts of Geekery is your five days a week destination for old-school geekery!
The excellent likeness of James Garner above is an unexpected pleasure. I don't suppose they got around to The Rockford Files...
Not that I've been able to tell, anyway... by the time the 1970s rolled around, most of the Give-A-Show features were all Saturday morning tv shows... they did do at least one Space: 1999 strip and a couple of Star Trek strips, and they even did separate releases of Give-A-Show Projectors featuring (separately) the Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman. I think their Star Wars Give-A-Show sets (which by then were starting to be marketed towards pre-schoolers for the most part, especially by Return of the Jedi) were probably the last of their sets... at least, so far as I've been able to determine!I have found myself wishing that they'd done a whole bunch of other shows and movie characters that would've appealed to kids... imagine how much fun a Universal Monsters Give-A-Show set would've been... or a Godzilla one... or Battlestar Galactica (although I suppose that was out since Mattel had the license there).I've been considering, once my own collection is nearly complete (or maybe even before then) making my own custom Give-A-Show strips!Jon
