Early Rick Springfield Footage Unearthed

Thanks to Ea for the heads-up:

The final new show to air on ABC this season [Saturday morning 1973] was a spin-off of The Brady Kids called Mission: Magic! The show featured an animated, pre-General Hospital, pre-Jessie's Girl Rick Springfield as he journeyed along with the magical Miss Tickle and her after-school group of adventurers as they made their way through time and space. Since Springfield was the star of the show, he performed a song at the end of each episode that usually tied into the moral of the story.

Check out the opening credits and song (sung by Rick). Priceless!
