What if The Avengers had been made in 1978 as a CBS TV movie?

Well, we've already answered the question of what The Avengers trailer would have looked like if it had been done in the style of the 1960s cartoon series. Now let's answer the equally burning question of what the movie would look like if it had been made in 1978.

This particular mash-up features footage not just from the 1970s Captain America TV movie,but also of Thor and the Incredible Hulk from the 1988 TV movie The Incredible Hulk Returns, as well as many other shows of the period – see if you can spot them all. At the very least, Galactica 80, MASH and Airwolf are in there, but I'm not sure how Jason King ended up doubling for Tony Stark, though.
