The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries (children)

     (ABC Sunday Nights, 1977 - 1979)

     [The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Mysteries were two series of
      books featuring young detectives which were the product of
      a group of writers hired by publisher Edward Stratemeyer
      in the early 1900s; the books were authored under a common
      pen name, but were really a group effort to create series
      of juvenile adventures;
      An animated cartoon series of The Hardy Boys had been 
      previously attempted on Saturday mornings 1969 - 1970;

      During the first 1977 season, the two live-action "mysteries"
      alternated as two separate series running bi-weekly; for 
      the second 1978 season the casts merged into one weekly 
      series but flagging ratings weren't improved by this change;

      The Hardy Boys were played by Shaun Cassidy and Parker
      Stevenson; Nancy Drew was played by Pamela Sue Martin]
