"Fantasy" was all that the title implied: Ordinary people from all over the United States would write in to have their wishes granted on national television. Although some of the fantasies were downright fatuous (e.g. one man wanted to twist his ankles inward on national television), and some of the musical acts were equally silly and at times contrived (e.g. one group who called themselves the "Rhythm Rascals," who played old-timey music and purported they performed at Disneyland's Diamond Horseshoe Revue, was actually three groups who previously appeared on the program combined into one group), "Fantasy" was definitely at its best when it focused on human interest stories, such as reuniting long-lost family members or friends and helping those who could not afford basic family needs (e.g. one Chicago area teen's parents were financially unable to get him braces, and the "Fantasy" staff helped make that a reality).

Did You Know?


"Fantasy" was one of the first shows from Columbia Pictures television to carry the following byline beneath the torch lady logo at the end of the show: "A unit of The Coca-Cola Company." Coke purchased Columbia Pictures in June 1982 and owned the studio until August 1987, when Coke spun Columbia off into its own independent company again, this time known as Columbia Pictures Entertainment, Inc. This arrangement lasted until September 1989, when current owner Sony Corporation purchased Columbia outright. (Under Sony's aegis, Columbia Pictures Television continued under that name until September 1996, when the company became Columbia TriStar Television. 5 1/2 years later, in January 2002, the company assumed its current identity as Sony Pictures Television.)

Great show!
8 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was on Fantasy in 1983. My mother's siblings were reunited after being separated at birth. It was the largest sibling reunion to date on television. I was 15 and in Hollywood was an awesome experience. I wish I could find a tape of the show. The producer of the show called my mother one evening late to tell her that they would be flying the whole family to California for taping and she fainted and dropped the phone. My mother is the oldest in the family and she was so happy to find other brothers and sisters that she had never met. The producers put us up at the Sheraton Universal for the whole week and I had a chance to meet a great many actors during a roast they had in the ballroom for Ron Cey who was traded to the Chicago Cubs. As a guest you could go down to the ball room and mingle.
