Fall promo palooza: ABC "Still the One" (1979)

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
ABC used a hot air balloon motif for its latest “Still the One” sing-a-long touting the network’s 1979-80 TV season.

Among those smiling and/or waving happily in these four separate promos are Robin Williams (with Pam Dawber) in his striped Mork shirt and a bearded Henry Winkler of Happy Days.

That fall’s new series aren’t featured in these spots. But ABC had its share of clunkers, including 240-Robert, Detective School, The Lazarus Syndrome and Out of the Blue. Still, the network was dominant in those days after finishing the previous season with 12 series in prime-time’s top 20, plus the ABC Sunday Night Movie.

Here’s some of what they were celebrating.
