Remember when Mr. T was work-besties with Nancy Reagan? Or when The Flintstones briefly added a little green martian to its cast? Or how about when ABC got the ingenious idea to take non-athletic rock and pop stars and pit them against each other in sporting events? Come right this way and take a stroll down memory lane with some of the grooviest moments in pop culture history.

Here’s a nice shot of a sultry looking Raquel Welch, one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1960s and 1970s. In a sea of blonde bombshells, Welch broke the mold of what it meant to be a sex symbol. Despite her impressively long resume, she’ll probably always be best remembered for her role in “One Million Years BC.”

She was in Bedazzled (1967), Bandolero! (1968), 100 Rifles (1969) and Myra Breckinridge. She won a Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture Actress in a Musical or Comedy in 1974 for her performance in The Three Musketeers. She was cast in Right to Die in 1987 and was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in Television Film for her performance.
