Chris Schenkel, Bud Palmer, Bill McCord

The annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, one of the world's largest parades, is presented by the U.S. based department store chain Macy's.The parade started in 1924,tying it for the second-oldest Thanksgiving parade in the United States with America's Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit (with both parades being four years younger than Philadelphia's Thanksgiving Day Parade). The two-hour parade is held in Manhattan from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thanksgiving Day, and has been televised nationally on NBC since 1952. Employees at Macy's department stores have the option of marching in the parade


The 35th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade from Central Park to Herald Square in New York City. 

Hosts: Bud Palmer and Chris Schenkel

Only the final 5 minutes of the parade was recorded, including the appearance of Santa Claus. We hear end credits and names of the sponsors of the parade by announcer Bill McCord, who was the announcer of the NBC TV Thanksgiving Day Parade for 21 consecutive years (1958-1978). 
Sign off. 


  It should come as no surprise that many of the telecasts from the 1950s thru the early 1970's are lost, or not known to presently exist in any broadcast form, and only one pre-1980 parade exists in full. One archived segment of the November 22, 1973 NBC MACY's THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE resides at The Paley Center for Media, and a segment of the November 26, 1959 CBS coverage of the THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE is archived at The Paley Center for Media. Not one pre-1980 TV Thanksgiving Day Parade is archived by The Library of Congress or by UCLA Film & Television Archive. 
  Network broadcast Kinescopes and Video were either discarded, wiped, or never recorded.  Video recording software (3/4" U-Matic) was first released to the Public at great cost in 1971, and the Betamax (1975) and JVC VHS (1976) gave the public a means to record television broadcasts off the air, but, to date, it seems nobody at home elected to record a complete parade and kept it making the 1971-1979 parades more likely to be found possibly only as clips than the 1952-1971 parades. Certain footage from old telecasts has been shown in anniversary specials, showing that some still exist. Bootleg copies circa 1980 to the present have been posted on You Tube...most all playback reflecting poor to fair quality till the 2000's. 

During the first television years, the parade went through changes. Many of the parade's most iconic balloons were introduced in this period, such as Popeye, Bullwinkle, the Happy Dragon, Underdog, Smokey Bear, Linus the Lionhearted, Sinclair's Dino, and the first two Snoopy balloons. The toy float concept was introduced in the 1960s, with a turkey-shaped one, introduced in 1973, eventually becoming parade mascot Tom Turkey.

A few notable lost parades include the 1956 parade (when Mighty Mouse crashed at Herald Square), 1965 (the debut of Underdog), and 1971 (when all the balloons had to be removed due to bad weather).

The 40th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, one of the world's largest parades, is presented by the U.S. based department store chain Macy's. Hosts for the NBC Television viewing audience are Betty White and Lorne Greene. Star attractions are Santa Claus and the balloons, including the new Superman, and Smokey the Bear, joining old favorites Bullwinkle, Elsie the Cow, Popeye, Donald Duck, Dino the Dinosaur, Linus the Lionhearted, and a dragon. 

The parade started in 1924,tying it for the second-oldest Thanksgiving parade in the United States with America's Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit (with both parades being four years younger than Philadelphia's Thanksgiving Day Parade). The two-hour parade is held in Manhattan from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thanksgiving Day, and has been televised nationally since 1947 and on NBC since 1952. Employees at Macy's department stores have the option of marching in the parade


The 40th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade from Central Park to Herald Square in New York City. 

Hosts are Betty White and Lorne Greene who have hosted the Macy's Annual Thanksgiving Parade from 1963. 
 
Scheduled to appear, among others, are Wayne Newton, Bruce Yarnell,and The Radio City Music Hall Rockettes.

  It should come as no surprise that many of the telecasts from the 1950s thru the late 1970's are lost, and only one pre-1980 parade exists in full (one hour kinescope of the 1959 NBC TV Macy's parade). Network broadcast Kinescopes and Video tapes were either discarded, wiped, or never recorded.  Video recording software (3/4" U-Matic) was first released to the Public at great cost in 1971, and the Betamax (1975) and JVC VHS (1976) gave the public a means to record television broadcasts off the air, but, to date, it seems nobody at home elected to record a complete parade or even segments, and kept it making the 1971-1979 parades more likely to be found possibly as home recorded video taped excerpts than the 1952-1971 parades which were rarely recorded or archived in any video or audio format. Certain footage from old telecasts has been shown in anniversary specials, showing that some still exist. However, those extant clips are very brief and not qualitative, visually. Bootleg copies circa 1980 to the present, with the exception of the 1981 parade, have been posted on You Tube...most all playback reflecting poor to fair quality until the 2000's. Thankfully, the pristine audio air checks of seven different Thanksgiving Day Parades (six complete broadcasts) exist as pristine audio in the Archival Television Audio, Inc. collection. Just close one's eyes and listen and imagine stepping back in time over half a century ago at the Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in Herald Square, New York...an American tradition.

During the first television years, the parade went through changes. Many of the parade's most iconic balloons were introduced in this period, such as Popeye, Bullwinkle, the Happy Dragon, Underdog, Smokey Bear, Linus the Lionhearted, Sinclair's Dino, and the first two Snoopy balloons.

A few notable lost parades include the 1956 parade (when Mighty Mouse crashed at Herald Square), 1965 (the debut of Underdog), and 1971 (when all the balloons had to be removed due to bad weather).

#8492: MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE: 47TH ANNUAL, THE
1973-11-22, NBC, 120 min.
John Davidson, Tommy Tune, Kent McCord, Martin Milner, Johnny Whitaker, Rockettes, Kathleen Freeman, Fifth Dimension, Johnny Nash

The annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, one of the world's largest parades, is presented by the U.S. based department store chain Macy's. The parade started in 1924, tying it for the second-oldest Thanksgiving parade in the United States with America's Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit (with both parades being four years younger than Philadelphia's Thanksgiving Day Parade). The two-hour parade is held in Manhattan from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thanksgiving Day, and has been televised nationally on NBC since 1952. Employees at Macy's department stores have the option of marching in the parade

The 47th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade telecast live from New York City.

Hosts; Martin Milner and Kent McCord   

Scheduled to appear in the Parade and perform are John Davidson, Fifth Dimension, Kathleen Freeman, Johnny Nash, Rockettes, Johnny Whitaker, and Tommy Tune. 

This "lost" parade contains the Golden Books song called:
"GOLDEN MOMENTS."


  It should come as no surprise that many of the telecasts from the 1950s thru the early 1970's are lost, and only one pre-1980 parade exists in full. Network broadcast Kinescopes and Video were either discarded, wiped, or never recorded.  Video recording software (3/4" U-Matic) was first released to the Public at great cost in 1971, and the Betamax (1975) and JVC VHS (1976) gave the public a means to record television broadcasts off the air, but, to date, it seems nobody at home elected to record a complete parade and kept it making the 1971-1979 parades more likely to be found possibly only as clips than the 1952-1971 parades. Certain footage from old telecasts has been shown in anniversary specials, showing that some still exist. Bootleg copies circa 1980 to the present have been posted on You Tube...most all playback reflecting poor to fair quality till the 2000's. 

During the first television years, the parade went through changes. Many of the parade's most iconic balloons were introduced in this period, such as Popeye, Bullwinkle, the Happy Dragon, Underdog, Smokey Bear, Linus the Lionhearted, Sinclair's Dino, and the first two Snoopy balloons. The toy float concept was introduced in the 1960s, with a turkey-shaped one, introduced in 1973, eventually becoming parade mascot Tom Turkey.

A few notable lost parades include the 1956 parade (when Mighty Mouse crashed at Herald Square), 1965 (the debut of Underdog), and 1971 (when all the balloons had to be removed due to bad weather).

In his acting debut, composer Stephen Sondheim ("A Little Night Music," "Follies") plays a wise-cracking pianist.
#8260: HEIDI
1974-03-01, NBC, 105 min.
Walter Slezak, Jean Simmons, Michael Redgrave, Maximilian Schell, Jennifer Edwards

This taped special became one of the most controversial and memorable programs in television history when NBC due to programming commitments broke away from the New York Jets-Oakland Raiders game to begin the Heidi broadcast. The Raiders went on to score two touchdowns in nine seconds to come from behind and beat the Jets 43-32.  

Heidi was an NBC made for television film version of the 1880 novel.
