Joe 90 was one of those precious shows from the Century 21 stable from the glory days of the swinging sixties.
The show depicts the adventures of a young boy who, with the aid of his scientist father (Joe was adopted) is able to assume the brain patterns of any one, provided he wears a special pair glasses.
Typically this might be the brain pattern of a pilot or a computer expert.
This allowed the show's story lines to venture into territory that otherwise would have been impossible
One of the really memorable things about the show was the absolutely cracking title sequence with music by Barry Gray which really set the adrenaline flowing, and could only have been produced in the late sixties.
The whole show oozed quality and imagination of the type that you simply do not get in kids shows today.
This was a truly great and memorable show so come back Joe 90, we need you !
