Collectibles of the Week: The Charlie's Angels Collection (Hasbro; 1977 - 1978)
In 1976, ABC had a surprise hit on its hands with Charlie's Angels, an action/crime drama starring Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith, and Kate Jackson as a team of beautiful crime-stoppers. The series ran for five seasons (until 1981), spawned two feature film re-imaginations in the early 2000s, and recently a TV re-boot in 2011. But the original series also spawned a highly successful line of toys from Hasbro.
Some costume change sets also came with accouterments and accessories. These sets included "The Slalom Caper," "River Race" and "Underwater Intrigue."
A vehicle was also released for the angles, the "adventure van" which came with a director's chair, wrist camera, headset and binoculars.
