Thanks to the Google newspaper archive, I put together a sample of newspaper previews from Season Four using The Victoria Advocate (of Victoria, TX, about 100 miles SW of Houston). I'm guessing these are wire service previews picked up by smaller newspapers, although no source or byline is shown on them.


9/27/1968
6:30 p.m. (CBS) – The Wild Wild West. (Season’s Premiere) President Grant and the U.S. are in hot water again, so clever agents West and Gordon begin their work for a fourth season. The two of them outslick foreign diplomat Harvey Korman of the “Carol Burnett Show,” without resorting to excessive fight scenes. Korman brings a flashy touch to the role and the production seems as fancy as ever. (Color)

10/11/1968
6:30 p.m. (CBS) – The Wild Wild West. Floyd Patterson begins a long weekend for fighters-in-makeup, portraying a homesteader being pushed around by a syndicate. Patterson’s character battles the power boys over his land with the help of agents West and Gordon. Floyd may not have Sugar Ray Robinson’s ease as an actor yet, but his debut holds out promise. (Color)

12/6/1968
6:30 p.m. (CBS) – The Wild Wild West. A half-mad Hungarian scientist who created a tuning fork capable of making sound waves loud enough to break up homes, gives our heroes an interesting taste tonight. Along with the tuning fork and guests Harold Gould and pretty Emily Banks, a fancy production adds to the sheen of the entry. (Color)

12/13/1968
6:30 p.m. (CBS) – Wild Wild West. Tiny Dr. Loveless returns, full of revenge and visions of greatness. He conducts a trial in a circus setting using clowns for the jury, and judges seven enemies including agent West. The highlights of the hour are the flashing circus backgrounds, a big cast, and the creation of a ventriloquist’s dummy exactly like Dr. Loveless, with Michael Dunn’s grinning deviltry leading the way. (Color)

1/24/1969
6:30 p.m. (CBS) – The Wild Wild West. More dealings with the demented Tycho and his mind conditioning group called Raven. After playing a victim, alert West slips into Raven quarters and puts on an entertaining visual display of visual experiments. Christopher Cary’s massive-domed Tycho, the Raven’s chief, creates the most interest, and he’ll tickle the kids with the raven on his arm and his chatter. Judging from this two-parter, Tycho ought to be paying a return visit. (Color)

2/21/1969
6:30 p.m. (CBS) – The Wild Wild West. Ross Martin is back with star Bob Conrad, a welcome sight. The two agents investigate an Army problem in a secluded western outpost, take on an underground gang called the Pistoleros, and wind up chasing the villains below the border. The premise generates enough action, but the main interest in the show is Martin’s return. (Color)

3/7/1969
6:30 p.m. (CBS) – The Wild Wild West. Operatic soprano Patrice Munsel makes a guest appearance playing a diva who intends to break a jinx in New Orleans. It seems that in the recent past, every opera star who has sung “Lucia di Lammermoor” has experienced a tragic mishap. To ward off trouble, agents Gordon and West attempt to protect the lady in New Orleans. (Color)


4/25/1969
6:30 p.m. (CBS) – The Wild Wild West. (Repeat) Pat Paulsen’s timing and dour expression are used to good effect playing a secret service man with no apparent abilities. Besides Paulsen, star Robert Conrad produces a new buddy, Charles Aidman, subbing for the then convalescing Ross Martin. While Conrad and Aidman try to smash an opium ring, bumbling Paulsen comes alive with a photographic memory and a secret weapon called ju jitsu, and his fight scene is worth the hour. (Color)

8/8/1969
6:30 p.m. (CBS) – The Wild Wild West. (Repeat) Operatic soprano Patrice Munsel makes a guest appearance playing a diva who intends to break a jinx in New Orleans. It seems that every opera star who has sung “Lucia di Lammermoor” in the recent past, has experienced a tragic mishap. To ward off trouble, agents Gordon and West attempt to protect the lady in New Orleans. The plot builds to a suitable climax and Miss Munsel adds the necessary artistic temperament. (Color)

Great find. Thanks for posting!

James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: "Thanks Artie"! Is that all you can say to me? I've just come back from the grave, risen like Lazarus, and that's what you say? "Thanks, Artie"?
James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: It's a pleasure.
