I found some more! Part I is here.
Around 1971, Mr. Nimoy made a personal appearance at Birmingham, Alabama’s local TV station WBMG on the kiddie show Sargent Jack. I’m totally digging the leather jacket! It’s fun to see an average Joe alongside Nimoy’s Joe Cool! Too bad there aren’t more pictures or a video of this! Would love to have heard what they chatted about.
Back then almost every local TV station with a news department had a kiddie show with a live host in character and often puppet shows, games, and cartoons.
I remember when I was a kid, our local CBS affiliate, WNBF, Channel 12, had their show Officer Bill with Bill Parker (who still does radio!) Our Local ABC affiliate (WBJA) had their local version of Bozo the clown, and as a curly- haired Brownie, my troop 206 got to be on both shows! (Wish I could get a video of those too!)
I never thought Uhura got enough screen time in the original. She deserved it, AND to take over the bridge once in a while! Here she is in all her gorgeous glory, by helingershadowfax:
Hey Kids, here’s Mr. Nimoy on Piers Morgan — and Morgan can’t hide his geeky side!
Here’s some screencaps I took from February 10th’s interview of Mr. Nimoy with Piers Morgan of CNN. As you can see, it was a lively conversation! I’ll have the transcript up for you soon! (and I hope video too). The man loves his life, regardless of any illness; a lesson we all could learn. Enjoy!
