Bigfoot and Wildboy (ABC 1979, Ray Young, Joe Butcher)

Bigfoot and Wildboy

This wasn’t the angry, sullen Bigfoot that fought The Six Million Dollar Man; this was the angry, sullen Bigfoot that raised and cared for a teenaged human orphan.

In this series, Bigfoot was some sort of benign, hairy protector, living in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. He was guardian and foster parent to Wildboy, a human who had been orphaned years before.

Bigfoot and Wildboy would get into dustups with various ne’er-do-wells every episode, defeating them with the help of their friends Suzie (first season) and Cindy (second). This show originally aired as a segment of The Krofft Supershow in 1978, then ran as repeats during the summer of 1979.
