Honey West is Brought to You By...

In the mid-1960’s, television giant Aaron Spelling brought America the adventures of Honey West the first female detective on television.

Well, the first American -- since Emma Peel on The Avengers was there first. And, history would prove, the most successful.  Score one for the British!

But this ABC series only lasted one season before it was banished to the land of flop-dom, never to be seen again (well, at least until Al Gore invented the internet which begat YouTube).

However... our video widget is not bringing you an episode of Honey West but, rather, classic retromercials featuring sponsors of the show.

Don’t worry though... in addition to product ads featuring:

  • George Burns
  • Edie Adams
  • Bill McCutcheon
  • Efrem Zimbalist, Jr
  • And more!

You will also get to see clips from the show in a promo made for the ABC affiliate station in Dallas, Texas.  Click the widget below for some classic TV memories:
