With its premeire on Feb 1, 1976, after a 2 week wait from a teaser on the last Six Million Dollar Man episode, the battle royal was on. We were able to figure out that Big Foot was stronger than the Six Million Dollar Man because Big Foot was able to completely jump over that lake while Steve Austin came up a bit short.
The confrontation came over a year before Darth Vader and Obi Wan would square off on the Death Star. It was Andre the Giant who played Big Foot in these two back to back episodes (Feb 8). This was probably the peak for the Six Million Dollar Man as it would go off the air in a little over 2 years late. Only lasting 5 seasons.
