The ongoing digitization of the late Huell Howser’s video archives continues to amaze me. After graduating from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Howser’s television career included stops in Nashville and New York before he settled in Los Angeles.
The latest video to be posted is from 40 years ago, when Howser was on WSM-TV in Nashville. The show is called “The Happy World of Huell Howser.” Minnie Pearl co-hosts with Huell as they introduce some favorite clips in which Huell meets a pig and a bear. According to the comments on YouTube, Pat Sajak is the booth announcer reading the sponsor tag for Commerce Union Bank at 1:24.
