Captain Video


The adventures of Captain Video, an early TV show, produced live five times a week.

"...the TV series' plots often involved wildly implausible inventions created by scientific genius Captain Video or evil genius Dr. Pauli, but obviously made from hardware store odds and ends, with much circumstantial double talk regarding their use. As the series was originally broadcast from a studio in the building occupied by the Wanamaker's department store, the crew would simply go downstairs when props were needed, often minutes before the show went on the air."

Looks lique a very deserving effort. They were making live-on-TV theater, basically.

Not "lique", I meant "like".
Sheesh! Sometimes I wonder what dark freudian slip makes me do such weird mistakes.

But the show must go on!
