Can you name these television characters on the cover of TV Guide in 1978?

Just one catch: They were all illustrated.

 
Forty years ago, television was pretty awesome. A handful of classic series were kicking off — just as some old favorites were saying goodbye. In 1978, dozens of recognizable TV characters were on your living room screen.

So… can you recognize them? Even in illustrated form? Below, you will find some art from the covers of TV Guide magazine in 1978. See if you can put a name to the face. Remember, we're looking for the character names (unless otherwise stated). Good luck!
  1. What was the name of this unforgettable sidekick?
  2. Who could mistake that chin?
  3. Which Love Boat crew member is this?
  4. Which space ace is shooting his blaster here?
  5. What is the name of this redhead?
  6. Hmm, who the heck could this be?
  7. Who is she?
  8. The character was on TV for years.
  9. Which SNL cast member is this?
  10. Who is the woman next to Lou Grant?
  11. Okay. Only a true ace can identify this pilot.

I wasn't crazy about it either but I remember Jane Seymour at her most beautiful being on the show. Also Lorne Greene was pretty good.
Actually, the cast was great but the scripts pretty bad. 😁

You have quite an eye — a photographic memory, even for drawings. Not to mention an appreciation for art.
