The Space Patrol Episode Guide
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!
In a nutshell and without the ending - just in case you haven't seen it yet...
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.
Despite his mastery of English, Husky still had a problem with certain phrases. His linguistic masterpieces feature here.
Likewise, Slims command of the English language was a little unusual. Overpedantic, say we.
As if that needed explaining...
The UGO Colonels wit and wisdom.
Dont Call Me Pop!:
Haggertys 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! Thats 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 wed log these trips and those of other people.
Im An Alien!:
Quirks and foibles of the planetary denizens.
Ooh, Bitch... :
Moral it was but boy, did the put-downs fly...
Written entirely by Roberta Leigh, the series often referred to on-going events on various planets.
Space Patrol regrettably fell into the rut of having an astounding invention or discovery help solve the problem of the week. In case it isnt evident in the synopsis, heres a re-cap...
Yes the show was produced on a shoestring budget in 1962 but wasnt this supposed to be the future?
Harmony For Strings:
Being a puppet show, problems handling the characters sometimes got onto film. Heres a few we spotted. And some that were better than average.
Havent I Seen... ?:
Produced on a limited budget, Space Patrol frequently re-used puppets, props and sometimes entire scenes! These are the ones we caught.
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.
