Wow! Check out those groovy threads! No decade made your eyes work quite as hard at processing clashing prints than the 60's... but at least these two were easy on the ears. Pictured here is Sonny & Cher, the decade's favorite musical duo. 

After the release of their first album with their hit single, “I Got You, Babe,” back in 1965, Sonny and Cher’s popularity skyrocketed. The couple began making television appearances and even more performances. It didn’t take long for the couple to get their own show. The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour was a variety show starring the famous couple and ran from August of 1971 until May of 1974. It was canceled due to the couple's divorce, though the duo reunited in 1976 until 1977 for The Sonny & Cher Show, which had an identical format to their old show.

After a decline in ratings, Thames Television canceled production of the show in 1989.
