Spaceman Jax
Spaceman Jax and the Galactic Adventures 

was first broadcast in 1961, sponsored by Sunington Morn Breakfast Cereals.  It was created by Bill Pendergast and Leo Ulrich, and designed by Philip La Carta (who also designed Brigadier Buffalo and Manfred J. Platypus, P.I.).  The show was the first big success for P.U.D. Film, and though it originally ran for just three seasons, it has continued to enjoy success in syndication.

The show featured work by animators such as Jim Dewicky and Bud Marsh.  Spaceman Jax (the “hero with a heart of gold, and the intellect of a Ploridian Lunar Beast”) was voiced hilariously by actor Jay Bernard, and other voice actors for the series included Barbara Daws, Eddie Oarke and Fred Fabray.

The show chronicled the continuing exploits of intrepid but dimwitted Spaceman Jax and his friends in the Star Year 6354 ¾.  Spaceman Jax and his young niece Dekkin were the only survivors of Tiberion 3, a planet destroyed for its energy-producing crystals.  Jax vowed to avenge his planet and bring the perpetrators to justice, while ensuring that no harm ever comes to young Dekkin.  Working as a freight pilot shipping crystals for Tarloc Industries, Jax’s travels across the quadrants brought him into weekly encounters with the armed fleet of the Mantagons, across the path of the power-hungry Tarloc, and into the clutches of the Zalfonens.  He succeeded through sheer dumb luck, and with the help of his long-suffering girlfriend Red and his loyal friends Rusty and Star Cowboy.  With each adventure Spaceman Jax brought “truth and justice to the farthest reaches of the galaxy,” even if only by accident.

Skipping Comic-Con

Taking a break from the big show

 Illustration from Curio and Co of Frank and His Friend illustration as the take a break and stop for a family of snails to cross the path

Summer is upon us, and for most of us that means a trip to San Diego for Comic-Con. However, for the first time since 2010, the Curio & Co. staff will be taking a break from the mega convention.

But don’t worry: We won’t just be lolling around the beach. Instead, we’ll be hard at work in the archives preparing some treasures for release from the vault.

So whether you’re headed to San Diego or will just be following all the Comic-Con antics online – Have a great show!

(And then come back and tell us all about it.)
