A fine installment of a phone company-financed science series
15 October 2006 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I fondly remember "The Alphabet Conspiracy" as part of what we called the Bell Telephone Science series. Like many Baby Boomers who went to parochial schools, we had little in the way of instructional material in the '50s and '60s. We looked forward to the manager of the local Bell office bringing in a canister with the latest installment in the series. It also meant we got out of class for an hour while watching the latest film.

Bell Telephone (which at the time was the nation's ONLY real phone company and had an office in most every small town) produced a series on various topics, most of it related so science. In many of the episodes an uncle-like professor, Dr. Frank Baxter, did the hosting. Sometimes he was assisted by actor Richard Carlson ("Creature From the Black Lagoon" and "I Led Three Lives") in explaining science to young people.

I remember the shows as being full of animation, packed with information and hosted by Baxter, who, in his own leisurely way, made us forget we were actually learning while watching.

At the time I was too young to realize that Daws Butler (famous as the voice of nearly all the voices from the "Yogi Bear Show" and his monumental work with Stan Freberg) was one of the animation voices on "The Alphabet Conspiracy."

For many of us, Dr. Frank Baxter was as comfortable part of our childhood as were Walt Disney and Buffalo Bob.
