Carson Time Capsule... Friday, July 31


In the capsule today…

We find McDonald's introducing a new option for the kids… the Happy Meal!

We find the movie "Superman" in theaters. The lead role was offered to Robert Redford, Burt Reynolds and Paul Newman, but they all turned it down! Newcomer Christopher Reeves eventually landed the role.

And we find a song on the radio by Michael Jackson. Randy and Janet Jackson tapped soda bottles with drumsticks for some of the percussion.

What is the year? (answer below).

The year... 1979!
