ABC’s Rock-N-Roll Sports Classic (1978)

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I find this fascinatinmg because in Britain we had no evquivalent of this. In the 1970s/80s we had “Superstars” but that was sportsmen (not sexist factual!) competing in something similar but the gimmick was they were doing different sports from the one they specialised in. The programme is most famous for England footballer Kevin Keegan falling off his bike in 1976..

  2. There were never musicians in “It’s a Knockout”?

    This is a crash course in feather-light humor.

    Wasn’t there a version of this with superheroes?
