Very dark and dour to a seven year old.
19 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I regularly watched this program as a very young child in the early 60s. At that age I found it (and the characters in it)extremely dark and creepy. I found Fireball XL5, Supercar, and Thunderbirds much more pleasant and enjoyable to watch. The music was eerie, the faces of the puppets were stark and staring, and every episode seemed very bleak when compared to other sci-fi puppet shows. All in all a bit of a cuckoo in the nest and a pale shadow of the infinitely superior aforementioned Fireball XL5. I could relate to Steve Zodiac but not the dour characters from Space Patrol. No surprise then that this third rate show has sunk into obscurity.
