During the height of the 3-D craze in the early-1950s, "Space Patrol" broadcast television's first experiment with three-dimensional imagery, in the 1953 episode "The Theft of the Rocket Cockpit." Viewers were encouraged in advance to buy specially packaged Ralston-Purina cereals that included 3-D viewing glasses. See more »
I grew up in Las Vegas NV, where there was no television until 1954. I was in the 4th grade, and it changed life for us kids quite dramatically.
Having listened to the likes of Superman and The Lone Ranger on the radio, and developing a mental picture of what the characters were "sposta" look like, it was sometimes a letdown to see "impostors", even though the voices were the same.
"Space Patrol" never was televised in Vegas, as far as I can remember. I was a faithful follower of the Saturday morning radio show, however: "High adventure in the wild, vast reaches of space! Missions of daring in the name of interplanetary justice! Travel into the future with BUZZ CORY, Commander-in-Chief of the SPAAAAACE PATROL!"
