Can you name celebrities on the cover of TV Guide in 1980?

Actors look a little different in ink and oil.


You would recognize all these actors from classic TV shows. In photographs. 

Illustrations? Those are a little harder. Artists are more subjective. Which can make identifying the stars on TV Guide a little tougher. Back in the day, the magazine loved to use paintings and drawings on the covers.

All of the following covers hit newsstands and grocery aisles in 1980. Keep that in mind as you try to match the cover with the TV show. Good luck!
  1. What show featured these porthole people?

Is that all you got? You must be playing softball because those were just too easy to knock out of the park.

Should get extra credit for recognizing the illustration at the top (Richard Chamberlain, 'Shogun'). Just sayin' :D

15 out of 15. Wish we had this style of TV Guide. But back then we didn't have 500 channels all showing crap.
