1966 NBC Promo Posters


I SPY NBC 1966 POSTER


MAN FROM UNCLE NBC 1966 POSTER


GET SMART NBC 1966 POSTER

These posters were part of a lot sold in May, 2011 at Heritage Auctions. The UNCLE poster is by an artist named Allison (from the signature), and went for $84. The I Spy poster is by Gustav Rehberger, and went for $179. The Get Smart is by Mad Magazine veteran Jack Davis and went for $120. Originally, these were sold by NBC for just a few bucks, apparently. The best source I’ve seen on the posters is at the I Spy forum, where Tatia writes:

“The eleven promotional posters produced to be given to NBC’s major affiliates as decorations for parties celebrating their 1966 season premieres were Bonanza, Daniel Boone, Flipper, Get Smart, Hey Landlord, I Spy, The Monkees, Star Trek, T.H.E. Cat, The Girl From U.N.C.L.E., and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. NBC did offer the Bonanza, Get Smart and I Spy for sale for a very limited time afterwards.”

  1. A bit right, A bit WRONG! I bought these myself as a kid! They were a whopping $1 each; $5 with postage for the set of four.

    In over 50 years, I’ve never seen, found or have an indication of any promo posters for the other shows, anywhere.

    Anybody with RELLY GOOD episodes of T.H.E. Cat, please yell. My dvd transfers are terrible!
