This review is from: Space Patrol  single disc edition [DVD] (DVD)
I thought that I was alone in fondly remembering this sixties puppet series... and then I find the super fan site and this wonderful DVD. If you have any interest in the various Sci-fi puppet seies of the 60s / 70s then this is a must for your collection. Captain Larry Dart, Husky & Slim are just as I remember them but what really suprises is the atmosphere created. At times genuinely spooky and evocative, the series works on many levels. I can reveal that the gun in episode 1 is the neck of a laboratory quickfit washbottle with two rubber bungs attached... but don't let that put you off, the mist shrouded surface (!!) of Jupiter is superb - far mor alien than the polystyrene rocks used in Star Trek and the like. The music is subdued and moody and predates Tonto's Expanding Headband by 10 years or so. How hip is that!!?
