January 12th

The Louisville, Kentucky, draft board refuses the exemption requested for Heavyweight Champion Muhammad Ali.  

Dr. James Bedford becomes the first person to be cryonically preserved with intent of future resuscitation.  (Not quite "Disney On Ice" … but historic nevertheless)  

A reboot of the popular late '50's TV Series "Dragnet" returns to network television.  Creator Jack Webb is back as Sgt. Joe Friday … but his new sidekick, Bill Gannon, is played by future M*A*S*H star Henry Morgan.  (By the way, the word "reboot" didn't exist in 1967)   

The Seeds appear on "Where The Action Is", performing "Pushin' Too Hard".
