    The opening titles of Good Times use ITC Souvenir Bold, with some of the swash alternates that were included in the original phototype version, but are missing from the digitization. The same typeface was also used for the titles of Alice. From Wikipedia:

    Good Times was an American television sitcom that aired for six seasons on CBS, from February 8, 1974, to August 1, 1979. Created by Eric Monte and Mike Evans and developed by influential producer Norman Lear, it was television’s first African American two-parent family sitcom. Good Times is a spin-off of Maude, which itself is a spin-off of All in the Family, making Good Times the first television spin-off from another spin-off.

    The series was also famous for bringing Jimmie Walker to national prominence.
