The Most Amazing Vintage TV Guide Ads

List Rules
Vote up your favorite ads from TV past.

Strap on your Internet time machine helmet, because it's time to travel back in television time. You're about to experience what it was like to watch television back in the '70s and '80s. It was an archaic period in television history where you had to flip through channels one at a time, watch commercials, and you had no idea what was on TV each night unless you had your trusty TV Guide.

These are some of the most amazing vintage ads you'll ever see from TV Guide. Ads for funny '80s shows like Pee Wee's Playhouse and promos for old shows you probably never heard of, like Electronic Grandmother. So before you go home and kiss your DVR, make sure you vote up your favorites.
