this is the club house

Way back in the early 1950’s an awesome TV show aired and it was called “Space Patrol”!!!! This was one  exciting sci-fi program, full of campy and adolescent space adventures that took place in a beautiful retro styled rocket ship called the Tara V!!! Ralston Purina was one of the big sponsors of the show and to advertise the weekly Television adventures, the Ralston group made traveling rocket ships for kids of all ages to walk thru. The rockets would tour the Country side exciting children from ages 1 to 94. One day the ultimate Ralston contest took place and the grand prize was to win one of these traveling rockets for your own club house!!! Kids all over the country entered the contest in hopes of winning this sacred space ship. A young boy by the name of  Ricky Walker would be the one to win this MAJOR AWARD, and as far as everyone was concerned, Ricky was the luckiest kid in the world,,, In later years Ricky was tracked down to be interviewed about the greatest day in kidom and to everyone’s surprise  he declined the offer,,,,,,,,, A little more research into the issue showed that Ricky sold the ship when he was a bit older and as far as the neighbor kids went they all said he was a selfish creep and hogged the prize to himself. He was rarely seen playing in it… When I read about young Ricky further I had to say, WHAT!!!!  This Ding Dong won the greatest prize a kid could EVER want, and you sold it!!!!  Then you don’t even want to talk about it!!!  Well to me that says the wrong kid won,, After reading all the accounts of this historical event I was left wishing that all the Scott Farkus’s and neighborhood bullies had ago with Ricky Walker everyday on the way home from school,, Clearly Young Ricky was the wrong one but looking back at all these pix I can’t even imagine a show offering such a prize in the world we live in today,,,  For more on this awesome show from the early days of “THE SPACE PATROL” go to

This was a fun little episode and the scheduling was a quiet so these versions got to have a little more time to be rendered out nicely. The sideways flying pick was milled over for a while but in the end the Catamaran made the finals and it was a beauty when Pierre finished his fab modeling!!! I missed this episode so I don’t recall if it had much screen time. OK off to the drawing table so have a great Tuesday fellow bloggers!
