Blast from the Past: Snapshots of Spanish TV in the 1970’s

These guys were great…

In 1980, Felix Rodríguez de la Fuente, Spanish T.V. personality and naturalist died in a plane crash. The immensely popular duo of Enrique y Ana memorialized him in this classic song.

The Adventures of Marco literally traumatized a generation of Spanish children. A story of a boy searching, endlessly, and excruciatingly, for his lost mother.

Curro Jiménez was Spain’s Robin Hood. He and his men fought Napoleon’s occupation of Spain as I recall. They carried blunderbusses and wore vests. Cool.

Mazinger Z, the birth of international geekdom? Popular in Spain as well.

Vicki the Viking got out of jams by rubbing his nose and that’s how his brilliant ideas came to him.
