New Series 1967


flying nun 1967The Flying Nun - Starring Sally Field as Sister Bertrille who solves all the Nunnery problems with her God given ability to fly. It was Fields second television role after the 1966 failure of Gidget. Fields playing a celibate Nun Fields was visibly pregnant for the filming of most of the second season.





Carol Burnett ShowThe Carol Burnett Show (1967 - 1978) This very popular comedy variety show stared Carol Burnett, Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, and Lyle Waggoner. Tim Conway did not join the cast until 1974. Burnett relied mostly on sketch comedy with a few celebrity guest appearances. She began each show with a brief question and answer period with the audience.



The PrisonerThe Prisoner - (1967 - 1968) Actor Patrick McGoohan created and starred as Number Six in this Science Fiction show that lasted all of 17 Episodes. Though short lived it is remembered well for the surreal content of the Hotel Portmeirion in Wales where it was filmed, and the even more surreal of never really understanding what is going on with that gigantic crazy white balloon chasing him around. The show was a spin off of the British BBC series Danger Man.



ironside 1967


Ironside - (1967 - 1975) Raymond Burr went from Lawyer Perry Mason to wheel chair bound Police Chief Robert Ironside. Don Galloway, Barbara Anderson and Don Mitchell costarred.




mannix 1967Mannix (1967 -1975) Mike Conners stars as Detective Joe Mannix with his secretary played by Gail Fisher, the first African-American woman in a regular series. The shows popularity stems from the mental and physical violence Mannix seems always to attract. Both the actor and the character were of Armenian descent.


The Phil Donahue Show - (1967 - 1996) The show began in Dayton, Ohio exclusively on the Crosley Broadcast network, it was not until 1970 that Donahue gained national syndication. The show moved from Dayton to Chicago in 1974, a 29 year run.

Television News 1967


smothers brothers comedy hourThe Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour (1967 - 1969) As the movie industry underwent change with the 1967 Oscar fight for Best Picture in which the old became pitted against the new, so this show was the harbinger of the counter culture change. Both Tom and Dick were always in a running battle with CBS censors not only over the skits involving politics, Vietnam, race and drugs, but also with censorship of guest stars. Performances by both Pete Seeger and Harry Belafonte were kept from airing. The show created comedy stars including Steve Martin, Don Novello ("Father Guido Sarducci"), Rob Reiner ("Mike Stivic"), Sally Struthers (Gloria) Presidential candidate Pat Paulsen, Bob Einstein ("Super Dave Osborne" and "Officer Judy") and resident hippie Leigh French ("Share a Little Tea with Goldie"). Up against the top show at the time Bonanza, The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour was very popular with the young, the American Idol of its time.



In 1967 CBS refused to allow Folk singer Pete Seeger perform his song The Big Muddy because it was a counter culture anti-war song. The Smothers Brothers fought CBS on this issue for a year and in 1968 CBS gave in. Though with high ratings CBS refused to renew the contract in 1969.

Sixties Pizzazz


The idea behind this project is to present the Sixties in an interesting manner with as much audio and visual content as we could manage without slowing things down too much.


Unlike most Sixties websites that are a hodgepodge of decade wide information, we approached this project year by year. WIth each year of the Sixties including categories in history, television, movies, music, sports, books, comedy, technology and toys.

Beyond the nostalgia and retro feel for those who lived through the time, it is also designed to attract the younger crowd.


We have enjoyed some success in that endeavor as this webiste has become quite popular with teachers who use Sixties Pizzazz to get their Middle and High school students interested in our historic and cultural past by assigning projects and papers to this and our other PIZZAZZ websites.


These websites are safe for Middle school and above.


Other Pizzazz Sites


Sixties Pizzazz is part of a larger procress still under construction. It includes Fifties Pizass, Seventies Pizzazz, and the still beta of Eighties Pizzazz. They all are similar in our effort to make recent history fun and intersting for the next generation.
