The Magician -- How It All Got Started

People ask me how I got interested in magic. Well back in the early 1970's (when I was a young lad) there was a show called The Magician starring Bill Bixby. It was a short run series that hardly anyone remembers anymore. But I do. You can actually watch the pilot to The Magician on YouTube -- in 9 parts of course.

This TV show spawned a little merchandising -- and the Bill Bixby The Magician  magic set was born. That's the one I received for Christmas one year. I just happened to find a few pictures of one being sold on ebay.

Memories!!  If the price tag wasn't $150 I might be tempted to make a purchase.
