Considered the first Sci-Fi TV show; it ran on the Dumont Network from 1949 to 1955. Done a shoestring budget and performed live, note the flubbed lines and rinky-dink special effects. You will notice they padded out the show with stock footage from an older war movie that has nothing to do with the show. The theme music was however better than the tinny organ usually used for live TV and radio at the time. A wildly popular show aimed at kids it spawned a slew of merch like like lunchboxes, toys etc. and was later spun into a movie serial with a bigger budget and a different cast. It was later a cartoon series as well. It starred Al Hodge. Complete with ads. Note the Cold War propaganda along with the Chinese villain.
