I storyboarded a Greatest American Hero episode he wrote and directed. One day we worked at his house. It had an impressive spiral staircase. Where the staircase abutted a wall were curved bookshelves holding hundreds of Big Little Books. I asked about them.
Culp said that as a young actor, he'd appeared on the Tonight Show, and one of his great regrets -- giving away his collection of forty or fifty Big Little Books when he went away to school-- came up.
The next week packages of BLBs started coming from all over the country. Now they were there on his staircase.
The power of televison.
