Remember that show from the late 70’s, early 80’s called That’s Incredible? For those of you young’uns, it was a weekly show hosted by John Davidson, Fran Tarkenton and Cathy Lee Crosby. In the vein of Ripley’s Believe it or Not or Real People (remember that one?), it had various segments of people doing amazing things or wild stunts. In fact, the show pretty much pioneered the use of the phrase “Don’t try this at home”.
For some reason they also focused a lot on unexplainable phenomenon (bigfoot, etc), as well as the paranormal.
