Forgotten TV: Year 1999 AD (1967)

Remember Tex Avery's "________ of Tomorrow" animated shorts for MGM back in the day? Philco, a now defunct division of Ford, certainly did. In 1967, the company presented the following promotional film proposing a possible future, in the year 1999. Now, we're well into the 21st century, and some of the innovations that the Philco suits had considered haven't really come to pass, but then.....!

Game show icon Wink Martindale stars with Marj Dusay and child actor Kerry MacLane, later of the Saturday morning series, Curiosity Shop. This might be a rare acting job for Wink.

No rating, of course.
