Boy, just reading this thread shows how old ALL of us are!  Yes, I remember Supercar, Stingray, Fireball XL5, and those other puppetry shows.  Remember Space 1999 too.  I agree with the 'Barbara Bland' comment, but Anderson wanted Martin Landau, and his wife 'had to' come along with him, or he wouldn't go.  Do you remember the shapeshifting alien woman too?  They just had to try to copy Star Trek, after they came out with Mr. Spock!

BTW, those Super Marionation shows ARE available on DVD.  I saw them for sale on E-Bay.

"plunk your magic twanger froggy"  "hiya kids hiya hiya hiya"

Hey son, don't sit so close to that TV. The X-rays will get you.

Hey dad, could you adjust the tin foil on those rabbit ears?

I grew up in Northern New Jersey in the 60's
I remember New York TV featuring such stars as Joe Bolton, Sonny Fox, Sandy Becker, Fred Scott, Soupy Sales and of course Popeye cartoons run by Captain Jack McCarthy (I think Billy Joel wrote a song about him)
 
Back then we had an elderly couple in our neighborhood. They were old (probably in their 70's), quaint, and technically challenged. When they watched Lawrence Welk, (which they actually enjoyed), they would always be dressed in their finest attire.  It stood to reason that if they could see him, he could see them.

Those were the days

Boy the Ham community is getting old.
Remember: Captain Midnight, Captain Video and his Video Rangers, Howdy Dudy and Buffalo Bob Smith, Milton Bearl's Texaco Star theater, Tails of Tomorrow, Pinkey Lee, The Goldberg's. I could go on and on, but I will stop here. Our family got there first TV set in the late 1940s. A 10" RCA that must have weighed 200 lbs.

It's "plunk your magic TWANGER, froggy".

The 45 RPM record of The Supercar song has the same thing on both sides.
