I remember in the 70s (before cable) the kids only had less than a dozen channels on TV, usually less than a dozen, so choices were slim, and
television was controlled by the rules placed upon it by government, much like it is today...
Long before the 90s there were aliens and flying saucers all over the TV. When I was a child growing up in the 70s I could name at least a dozen
aliens and ufos related shows I saw before the third grade. Some on Saturday morning cartoons, like
from the Flinstones &
Marvin the Martian
from Looney Tunes,
and the Superfriends
also had aliens and ufos in their episodes. Also there was an after
school show when I was in first grade about ufo investigators I remember watching. And shows like Twilight Zone and Outer Limit reruns with common
ufo and alien themes. As well as aliens and ufos making their way into episodes of the Six Million
bionic man series, and Buck Rogers
. Not to mention the movies Star Wars, Superman, and Close Encounters.
There were aliens and ufos on TV as far back as I can remember, and on TV everyday, and all over the Saturday morning cartoons.
Yep, Aliens and ufos saturated and flooded pop culture on TV throughout the 70s.
Not to mention what we were taught in third grade about compound words, compound words being words formed from other words crammed together...
example: Disc + Low + Sure = Disclosure
. Ah, public schools, gotta love em.
Aliens and ufo info was funneled to children from every possible medium and encorporated in almost all tv series aimed at the young demographic
throughout the 1970s as far as I can recall.
