Show Toppers: Charlie’s Angels

An iconic title card
Charlie’s Angels, 1976

“Once upon a time there were three little girls who went to the police academy…”

Here’s the “Topper,” or original intro for Charlie’s Angels first season from 1976. The popular PI drama ran on ABC for five seasons until 1981.

“And they were each assigned…very hazardous duties.”

The original cast of investigators featured Farrah Fawcett-Majors (Logan’s Run) as Jill, Jaclyn Smith as Kelly and Kate Jackson (The Rookies) as Sabrina. David Doyle (Bridget Loves Bernie) played John and John Forsythe (Dynasty) provided the voice of agency boss Charlie.

The show was Farrah Fawcett’s first steady acting gig. Prior to Charlie’s Angels she was best known for TV and print commercials and the occasional guest starring television appearance. Jaclyn Smith had a similar background but was much lesser-known when she landed the role. Kate Jackson had already established herself as an actress as a series regular on The Rookies.
