#8491: MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE: 46TH ANNUAL, THE
1972-11-23, NBC, 120 min.
John Raitt, Lorne Greene, Donna Fargo, Betty White, Bill Anderson, Joe Gargiola, Dance Theater of Harlem, Santa Claus, Walt Disney Float, West Point Glee Club

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 46th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade telecast live from New York City.

Hosts; Lorne Green and Betty White who have co-hosted The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade from 1963-1972.

Scheduled to be in the parade and perform are Bill Anderson, The Dance Theater of Harlem, The Wold of Walt Disney, Donna Fargo, Jody Miller, John Raitt, Rockettes, West Point Glee Club. Joe Garagiola opens the broadcast congratulating Lorne Green and Betty White on their tenth consecutive appearance co-hosting the parade. Also noted that this telecast marks the 25th time, since 1945, that NBC Television has broadcast the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, either locally or nationally.

 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).
