Happening '68 (later known as Happening '69 and simply Happening) was a rock and roll variety show that was produced by Dick Clark Productions and aired on ABC. It premiered on January 6, 1968 and was canceled in October 1969.

The show was co-hosted by Mark Lindsay and Paul Revere. Their band Paul Revere and the Raiders would make frequent appearances. Guest performers would lip-sync their latest releases, and band contests were held with celebrity judges.

Most of the series is currently lost, though 12 episodes have been making the rounds as bootlegs. They can be found as a three volume set of DVD-Rs from various unofficial sources.[1] It's only a small fraction of the series, which ran for 76 episodes.
