Did You Know?

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 »

Great fun!!, 27 February 2002
Author: sshumsuper7fan78 from United States

Jason of Star Command is one of my favorite shows. As a young teenager, I had already enjoyed earlier related Filmation shows, Tarzan, and Space Academy both of which were great stuff. When Jason came out as part of the whole Tarzan and the Super 7 package, the whole 90 minutes worth of action just about blew me out of the water, and Jason was one of my favorite segments.

Jason was packed to the gills with great special effects produced on a shoestring budget. The whole production moved along at a brisk, sledgehammer pace, with solid stories, and reasonably good performances, in particular those of Charlie Dell (as Professor E.J. Parsafoot) and Sid Haig (Dragos), both of whom obviously had a great time filling their roles.

The whole thing was reminiscent of the old science fiction movie serials of the 40s, such as Undersea Kingdom and the Phantom Empire, as well as its contemporary serial like films Flesh Gordon and Starcrash.

The show (deservedly) earned its own half-hour time slot, but faded all to quickly, for my money.

Filmation did two other fine science fiction serials, both animated, in 1979, following Jason: Mighty Mouse: The Great Space Chase (as part of the New Adventures of Mighty Mouse, and later repackaged inaccurately for home video as Mighty Mouse's first "feature legnth movie") which was camped up to the hilt, and the beautifully animated (New Adventures of) Flash Gordon.
