FUNNY STUFF 1.1
When I was growing up in Chicago my family had one black and white television that received three stations. One of them was WGN. I remember watching reruns of Commando Cody – who was sort of a future version of the Lone Ranger. He wore a leather coat, a rocket pack, a cool helmet and he flew around fighting aliens. If you are a comic book geek, you will know that Dave Stevens’ Rocketeer was inspired by Commando Cody. If you aren’t a comic book geek, you will have no idea what I just said.
To a little kid the idea of having a rocket pack was the coolest of the cool. But the show was really, really low budget and cheesy.
I just found the following vid that takes a Commando Cody episode and gives it a new soundtrack. It is a little long, but worth watching.
