which was hosted by Fran Tarkenton, John Davidson, and
Cathy Lee Crosby, was a reality TV show that ran from
1980 to 1984 on ABC. The show basically featured the
amazing feats, Guinness Book type antics, and unsolved
mystery type oddness of both people and animals. There
would be vignettes of people reenacting paranormal
events, as wells as people performing actual stunts.
The show would sometimes feature people with strange
talents, as well as showcasing medical or technological
breakthroughs of interest.
Initially, That’s Incredible started out as an hour long
show, but was scaled down to 30 minute segments after
some time. Some of the stunts on the show were
extremely dangerous, enough so that the producers felt
it necessary to put a disclaimer up (i.e. do not try
this at home). On an interesting note, one episode
featured the young Eldrick Woods, who could knock a golf
ball into the hole at a very young age. Eldrick grew up
to be known as “Tiger” Woods.
