Did You Know?

Jonathan Harris was supposed to play Commander Gampu on Jason of Star Command, as this was to be a spin-off of his series Space Academy. In a personal interview, Harris related that while the stories about his demand for higher pay is not wrong, it is also not right. According to Harris, Filmation planned to film the series like an old movie serial, with each show running about 15 minutes. Space Academy was a half hour show, and Harris was asked to recreate his role of Gampu for half the money he was paid on Academy. He felt just because they cut the running time in half, they could get him for half the money. So, when Lou Scheimer said he would have no problem getting Harris because they were friends, it meant that he thought he could con Harris into taking less money and save on his production costs. Harris refused to take the paid cut and Jimmy Doohan was brought in as a replacement character.See more »

BUCK ROGERS for the younger set..a tv serial, 16 June 2001

In the tradition of the old 1930's serials CBS hot on the heels of SPACE ACADEMY and ARK 2 and SHAZAM released this program which was similar to BUCK ROGERS and FLASH GORDON. The series featured special effects, daring do all on a tv budget. This show was different from BATTLESTAR GALACTICA and STAR WARS yet capitalized off the craze. The program was the last of a wave of live action shows for CBS that started with KOOKLA FRAN AND OLIE etc. The show ran in a half hour format and was constantly running re runs when fresh episodes were not available. A saturday moring staple for many years..escapist fun for kids. Don't call the JASON the "grey poupon guy" as a kid I liked him like many kids in the 1930's or 1970's reveared ADAM WEST or BUSTER CRABBE.
