I can't figure out why a production with so much star power has become so obscure as to be forgotten. I would agree with you, and venture a guess that it didn't air on primetime--otherwise, many more would remember it. I still recall seeing Once Upon A Mattress in '72--the one and only time I've ever seen it. I certainly didn't watch that Superman (train wreck) special. Would have been past my beddy-bye time. But--there's something to be said for Bad TV on dvd--it's fun!! I don't know if that Li'L Abner special was good or bad, but curiosity's now gotten the better of me and I wanna know what's going on with it. It seems to be controlled by TCM--it's listed on their website.
