The Space Patrol Episode Guide

Notes:
Welcome to our Episode Guide! Rather than trot out a detailed synopsis (go and buy the videos or DVD now!) with a few cursory notes, we tried to thread through a few things like notable quotes and oft repeated quirks and foibles of the series. Try it... you might like it!

Synopsis:
In a nutshell and without the ending - just in case you haven't seen it yet...

Cast:
Our stab at who voiced who, or what...

And The Moral Is:
Each episode had a strong moral theme (usually) so this is what it boiled down to.... give or take a liberty.

Today I Will Be Mostly Learning... :
And being educational too, this is what you might have learned from watching Space Patrol.

Huskyisms:
Despite his mastery of English, Husky still had a problem with certain phrases. His linguistic masterpieces feature here.

Slimantics:
Likewise, Slim’s command of the English language was a little unusual. Overpedantic, say we.

Gabblings:
As if that needed explaining...

Raeburnt:
The UGO Colonel’s wit and wisdom.

“Don’t Call Me Pop!”:
Haggerty’s wild and varied schemes and sayings...

A Venusian Has...:
The facility never to forget. And Marla never lets US forget that! Her little asides and escapades.

To Coin A Phrase:
“Of course! That’s it... “

Is This A Joke ?:
Humour & disbelief ran riot in 2100. Are we joking ? We kid you not.

The UGO Needs You:
Bits we picked up about the United Galactic Organisation which may inspire you to join up... or not!

‘Riding Along In My Monobile... ‘:
Paraphrasing a Chuck Berry song, we noticed Raeburn has something of a fetish for driving his monobile so we thought we’d log these trips and those of other people.

‘I’m An Alien!”:
Quirks and foibles of the planetary denizens.

Ooh, Bitch... :
Moral it was but boy, did the put-downs fly...

Continuity:
Written entirely by Roberta Leigh, the series often referred to on-going events on various planets.

Plot Device:
Space Patrol regrettably fell into the rut of having an astounding invention or discovery help solve the problem of the week. In case it isn’t evident in the synopsis, here’s a re-cap...

2100 ?:
Yes the show was produced on a shoestring budget in 1962 but wasn’t this supposed to be the future?

Harmony For Strings:
Being a puppet show, problems handling the characters sometimes got onto film. Here’s a few we spotted. And some that were better than average.

Haven’t I Seen... ?:
Produced on a limited budget, Space Patrol frequently re-used puppets, props and sometimes entire scenes! These are the ones we caught.

Notable Quote:
That will be the one in big letters...

For Those Of You Just Joining Us... :
Reiterated facts and dialogue, in case you weren't paying attention to the previous episodes - or even if you were, for that matter...

Take A Break:
With the trend of editing out advert breaks for video and DVD releases increasing, this is where part one ends.

Astro Viewer Working:
Additional observations.

Hoorah!:
Things that were cool about an episode...

Boo!:
...And things that were not.

Computer Central:
Additional facts about the episode incorporating...

Listings
Details of the episode from various television magazines plus airdates.

Brahms & List
And where the listings went ever so slightly p*ssed...

Ready To Lift ?:
Our verdict of the episode, with a score out of ten. Personal but hey, it’s our website.

We close on the blazing sun in space before fading to a view of ringed planet Saturn. A gyroscope-like ship, enclosed in a flickering bubble of energy, speeds past us and beyond accompanied by almost musical radiophonic tones. We see it pass the Moon before spinning away to the twilight of the Earth's curved horizon... As we hear a grinding rhythmic electronic score, we see scenes of a futuristic city under a dramatic sky. Some buildings and antennae rotate, light pours from other structures as bullet-shaped and spherical vehicles move rapidly back and forth... 'This is Earth - the year 2100. New York is the headquarters of Space Patrol and men from Earth, Mars and Venus live and work there as guardians of peace. This is the story of those men, whose courage and daring make the universe safe for us all.'
