This Day in TV History: Easter on NBC

40 years ago tonight, NBC gave America not one but two--count 'em, TWO--brand-new animated specials.

The Smurf Springtime Special was a typical Smurfy special centered on--stop us if you heard this one before--Gargamel trying to capture the wee blue ones. In this case, he goes after Mother Nature to prevent the arrival of Spring!

A Family Circus Easter is also self-explanatory. The kids have an Easter egg hunt, trying to help lovable lil' PJ find an egg. Oh, and Dizzy Gillespie appears as The Easter Bunny.
