Old Time Radio - Sci-fi & Fantasy - Space Patrol


© Old Time Radio Catalog via Dokumentationsarchiv Funk

Space Patrol is a science fiction adventure, aimed at juvenile audiences of the early 1950s via television, radio, and comic books. The Space Patrol television show began as a 15-minute show on a local (Los Angeles) station on March 9, 1950. On December 30, 1950, a half-hour show was added on Saturdays on ABC (while the 15-minute show continued daily locally, and was seen via kinescope in a few other cities). A 1953 30-minute episode was the subject of the first US experimental 3D-TV broadcast on April 29 in Los Angeles on ABC affiliate KECA-TV.
Space Patrol aired continuously until July 2, 1954; after a short break, it reappeared on September 4, 1954, and it finally disappeared from the air on February 26, 1955. 210 half-hour shows were made, and close to 900 15-minute shows over Space Patrol's 5-year run.
The success of the TV show spawned a radio version, which ran from 18 September 1950 to 19 March 1955. The writers, scripts, adventures and director were quite similar between the radio and TV incarnations. Although there was never any deliberate crossing-over of storylines, TV villains showed up on the radio Ed Kemmer played Commander Buzz Corey of the United Planets Space Patrol with vigor and enthusiasm. His sidekick was Cadet Happy, portrayed by Lyn Osborn as something of a futuristic Robin, with lines like "Smokin' rockets, Buzz!" Together they blast off on their ship Terra V to patrol the vast reaches of "outer" space. Of course, a lot of boys thought they might grow up to be like Cadet Happy. Girls liked Carol Karlyle, played by Virginia Hewitt, who was the daughter of a very important leader of the United Planets and was in on the adventures.Virginia Hewitt performed the role of Carol Karlyle. Of course, there were space bad guys. The evil Mister Proteus was one of the worst. Others were Dr. Ryland Scarno, an evil scientist, and Prince Baccarritti, AKA The Black Falcon. All have space thugs. There was a bad and beautiful space woman also. Nina Bara played the beautiful Tonga in the best space opera fashion. She was one of the first vamps on TV, and Gene Roddenberry must have been watching. (notably Prince Bacarratti), and during the Planet X story arc both TV and radio explored the rogue planet. While the series lacked the adult sophistication of such shows as X Minus One (which focused on adapting short fiction by notable genre names as Robert A. Heinlein and Ray Bradbury), Space Patrol was enjoyed as the sort of Golden Age space opera popularized in the 1930s, the days of science fiction's infancy, by pioneering magazine editor Hugo Gernsback, and it is prized by OTR collectors today as one of radio's most enjoyable adventures.
