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!

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