The little known story of England's conquest of space circa 1950
A CGI version of the 'Eagle' comic character played almost completely straight. Prof. Peabody is now a master of martial arts with big boobies, Digby is no longer quite as circular, and Dan himself looks somewhat less of the English city gent, but basically this is a visual comic, faithful to the original Frank Hampson classic, and all the better for it. Lines like "There's nothing for it, we'll have to land on the surface of the sun!" (Which turns out to have breathable air and be not quite as hot as its atmosphere) are delivered with total conviction and make for a slightly camp mixture of thrills and laughs.
When originally shown on Britain's Channel 5 the series was repeated twice in very short order as word spread and new viewers demanded to see the earlier episodes they'd missed.
The music over the closing credits was provided by Elton John.
