Description: Looking for a unique form of good, clean, family-oriented fun? Check out an old fashioned magic show. Master magician Mark Wilson created The Magic Land of Allakazam, the first ever network television magic series. The shows were taped with a live studio audience of children and included sleight of hand sequences, audience participation, magical commercials, and major illusions. Greg Wilson (Mark Wilson's son) has selected rare archival copies of some of the most important episodes.
