Light Time (1960)
Yes,I remember that series of the early 60's when I was 6-8 years of age. The TV shows in my area were Philadelphia-based being I lived in Southern New Jersey.This show aired on Channel 6 (WFIL-TV,at that time) early Sunday morning right after DAVEY AND GOLIATH.I remembered Jim Stewart was seen in stories with or without the puppets. There were even at times social stories where no dialog was used. Great time to be a kid. I loved that theme song......IT'S LIGHT TIME...THE RIGHT TIME...THE RIGHT TIME IS LIGHT TIME. If I wasn't watching it for its stories,I certainly was always there for the theme song. How I wish that serene,holy song was on the music market for purchase.It's regretful that he's no longer with us. - Keith Sewell
Does anyone ever noticed that the long pan landscape scene of the rescue rocket and the wreck of the first expedition rocket were reused a few years later. That same scene is seen on an episode of the sci/fi anthology series,THE OUTER LIMITS (The Invisible Enemy).Adam West starred in this during his pre-BATMAN days.Both this and the IT movie have similar plots.Both involved expedition rocketships bound for Mars.When the Earth loses communication contact with them a second rocket is launched to investigate the whereabouts of the original ship.In both cases,the crew were fighting for survival against creatures that were in some way invisible and stayed in the shadows.Even the 'rocket taking off from Mars' scene,from "IT" was reused in The Outer Limits. This also applies to soundtrack music. The Paul Sawtell opening theme music was borrowed from earlier movies,KRONOS,THE DEERSLAYER,and GIGANTIS,THE FIRE MONSTER aka "Godzilla Raids Again".
Johnny Cypher In Dimension Zero
Boy, does that show bring back memories of television.I remember when this animated series was part of WEE WILLIE WEBBER'S Colorful Cartoon Club during the 1960's (Only those who lived in South Jersey,Philadelphia,and Delaware would know what I'm talking about.).Joe Oriolo was also the guy who produced THE MIGHTY HERCULES cartoon series prior. In fact,if you notice both Herc and Johnny resemble one another.Paul Hecht was both the narrator and voice of Johnny Cypher.Corinne Orr was the voice of Johnny's female companion,Zena,and Rhom,his small Martian companion.(I would have listed Zena as Johnny's girlfriend,but I never recall seeing any romantic moments between the two throughout the whole series.) Its easy to identified Ms.Orr's voice since Rhom sounds identical to MARINE BOY's "Cle-Cle" and SPEED RACER's "Spridle" characters. Her mature adult Zena voice is often heard in roles like "Mom Racer" and any other adult woman/teenage/or small child roles (girl or boy) of the three aforementioned shows,sans The Mighty Hercules.(I have met her in person on two occasions.) Paul's other contribution was being the narrator,and voices of Goldar,the space avenger,and ruthless Rodak during the first half of the Japan live-action series,THE SPACE GIANTS,aired at the beginning of the 1970's.(known in Japan as MAGUMA TAISHI "Ambassador Magma") During the series second half, Paul was replaced by the late Ray Owens as the voices of those same characters. Veteran Peter Fernandez was the writer of the Johnny Cypher series as well as the voice of one of Cypher's reoccurring villains,"Nero Tyrannor".In addition to Nero,Johnny has other reoccurring adversaries as well such as "Gorlok","Doctor Root","Mister Mist","Napoleon",just to name a few. Both Johnny Cypher and The Space Giants bear the same sound effect background sounds and the same voice actors. Hey Warner Brothers,you're the bearers of all material from the defunct ed Seven-Arts Productions,right? What's stopping you from releasing this and the Marine Boy series on DVDs? What are you waiting for...Superman?I would want to see these great shows again.
