Space Patrol / Planet Patrol Space Patrol / Planet Patrol is a 60’s Children’s TV puppet show and was written and created by Roberta Leigh. She also produced it with Arthur Provis. In the UK it was know as Space Patrol and in the USA it was known as Planet Patrol. A total of 39 episodes were made.     Story   The year is 2100 and the people of Earth, Mars and Venus have joined together to create a Galactic Force called Space Patrol. Its Headquarters are in New York , where Colonel Raeburn oversees the operations that each Space Patrol is on (the spaceships they use are called Galasphere's). His secretary is a Venusian is always one step ahead of him, predicting what he will ask for next. She has great pleasure in pointing out how good Venusian are (and probably how useless humans are!!) and sounded a bit like Mickey Mouse!.    We follow Galasphere 347 on their adventures. Its crew is made up of 3 people. Captain (Larry) Dart, the commander of the ship who is level headed most of the time. Slim a small Venusian who is very logical (the Spock of his time) and Huskey a Martian whose always up for a fight and never stops eating (he like sausages alot). Also it looks like he's been busy cloning himself as everyone from Mars looks just like him! I think they pulled out all the stops to come up with the most far out names for what the Galasphere was powered by - Mesan Power, Yobba Rays, Zergon Drive etc.   They were ahead of their time, because they were into cryogenics to enable them to travel large distances. They used the Freezer to slow down the aging process while travelling (its strange that everyone back at base never aged while they were frozen). If they were in real trouble they would contact the brilliant Professor Haggerty, who would (at the very last moment) come up with a plan to save the Galaxy, helped by his daughter Cassie. He is a bit of a chauvinist about women - tut, tut. Huskey brought his pet, Gabbler (a Martian Parrot), to see the Professor to see if he could teach him to speak English. Afterwards they wished he hadn't, because he just doesn't stop talking.   One planet's inhabitants think that humans are beneath them and stupid - the Neptunian's. They have the power to control people via telepathy, to become their slaves so they don't have to work. So Captain Dart & Crew had better watch out! It seems that the crew of Galasphere 347 were a bit overworked. Each time they were about to get some shore leave, it was cancelled for another mission - the slave drivers!   Space Patrol - New York Space Patrol T-Shirts - NONE Space Patrol DVDs Region 2 (Europe) - NONE Region 1 (USA) - NONE Space Patrol Video Space Patrol - Slim And Captain Dart Space Patrol Episodes Series 1 (1962)  1.
