I’ve rediscovered an old childhood favourite of mine. A TV series from the early 1960s called Space Patrol.
In the US it was called Planet Patrol. I think this was to avoid confusion with a different TV series made in the 1950s that was also called Space Patrol.
I also discovered the complete series of 39 episodes costs over $300 on Amazon so I think I’ll stick to watching it on Youtube.
Watching a few episodes brings back memories. It does seem ahead of it’s time for the early 1960s.
