Storyline

"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).

Help me find a Fantasy episode
11 May 2012 | by kagibson2010See all my reviews

I was on Fantasy as an infant. My father was stationed in Japan when I was born and it was my moms "fantasy" for him to see me before I was a year old. The show had the Marine Corp tell my dad that he had a mission in CA but would not give him anymore details, it was a complete surprise for him. My older sister was also 2 years old at the time and had not seen my dad in about 7 months so it was also a great reunion for her. I have a newspaper clipping of what happened, but I would really love to see it for myself and to watch it with my children. I am really trying to find a way to get that episode. PLEASE!! Does anyone know where I can get a copy or watch it online?
