Trivia

Originally the part of Dragos was offered to actor Ted Cassidy who was best known as Lurch on the original Addams Family television series. In July of 1978, In a rare personal interview Cassidy told how producers offered him the part, but because he had first refusals on a couple of other pilot films, he wasn't able to give the producers a direct answer if he wanted to accept the role. When he finally got back to them, it was too late as they had to begin production and cast Sid Haig in the role. They would have had to recast as Cassidy died in January 1979. See more »

One of my fondest memories
18 August 2004 | by (Saco, Maine) – See all my reviews

I love cartoons. There, I admit it. Except for one thing. JOSC wasn't a cartoon. It was a spinoff of SA. According to the opening voice

over, Jason, last name unknown, worked out of a secret section of Space Academy. His superiors were Professor E.J. Parsafoot, and Space Academy's last two commanders. His enemy was

Dragos, a brutal dictator, who was the emperor of some unnamed empire. Jason of Star Command aired two years after Star Wars and was in the same vein. It was set some time in the far, distant future, when, exactly, we don't know. Watch both this, and Space Academy, they both do justice to each other.
