TV Series
    It started out as a summer replacement for 'The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.'
    It was part of the variety show craze of the late 60s and early 70s.
    The Big Mac made its advertising debut on an episode ( McDonald's was a sponsor).
    Comedic sketches tended to be inconsistent - usually a hit or miss depending on the viewing audience.
    For instance, one sketch featured an actor in a kangaroo costume hopping around stage singing 'Gentle on My Mind.' At the 'sleeping bag' verse, a joey pops out to sing 'behind my pouch' in the stead of 'couch.'
    House musician (and theme song composer) John Hartford appeared in a sketch demonstrating his ability to play tunes on his face by slapping himself in the cheeks and altering the aperture of his mouth.
    Glen tended to promote his new projects through his skits (e.g. doing a sketch with Dom DeLuise carrying the world's largest bag of popcorn to promote their 'Norwood' movie at a mock-screening).
    Its 'Gentle' theme song performed at the start of each show was heartbreakingly nostalgic.
    Writers on the show included Steve Martin and Rob Reiner.
    It also helped to launch the careers of show regulars Anne Murray and Jerry Reed.
    It was one of the only rural-themed shows to survive CBS' purge of its programming.
    It showcased the versatility of Glen Campbell's musical talents, such as when he performed a memorable rendition of 'Autumn Leaves' for a show.
    John Wayne famously exchanged a peace sign with Three Dog Night during his guest appearance.
    Carol Burnett appeared on the show to plug her own (ultimately more successful) new show slated to premiere that week.
    Glen Campbell received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Television Actor for his work on the show, losing to Dan Dailey for 'The Governor & J.J.'
    Glen had two #1 country hits at the time of the show's release - 'Wichita Lineman' and 'Galveston' - and performed both during the show's run for the audience's enjoyment (thankfully this was before 'Rhinestone Cowboy' debuted).
