ESPN25: Who's #1? was designed to glitz up the 25th anniversary of a network that permanently altered sports journalism and sports in general. Their mission was to present, in crude cinema verité form, the good, bad, and ugly that have left its fingerprints in the sporting community since ESPN debuted September 7, 1979. All the lists are limited to ESPN's first quarter-century and thus are frozen in place.

After the success of his 2 sitcoms, The Dick Van Dyke Show and The New Dick Van Dyke Show, comedian Dick Van Dyke, just like many others, decided to try his hand at a variety show. Titled Van Dyke and Company, it premiered in September 1976. It featured Dick Van Dyke standing in front of several doors, one of which a guest star would come out of. The show was best known for Dick's pantomime acting and a recurring skit about the dumbest family in the world, coincidently named "The Bright Family". Van Dyke & Co also featured appearances by the Los Angeles Mime Company. However, the show, like many other variety shows at the time, was cancelled rather quickly. Dick Van Dyke would later create a new sitcom, The Van Dyke Show.
