Canceled Too Soon #193 | Commando Cody: Sky Marshal of the Universe (1953 or 1955)

The jetpack-wearing superhero who inspired THE ROCKETEER made the jump from Republic movie serials to serialized television in the 1950s, but was COMMANDO CODY: SKY MARSHAL OF THE UNIVERSE a serial that aired on tv, or a tv show that played in theaters?

And most importantly, was this imaginative early sci-fi adventure... CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold strap on their rocket-boosters and explore the history, the influence, the silliness, and sometimes the sleepy boredoms of COMMANDO CODY: SKY MARSHAL OF THE UNIVERSE, the oldest series we've ever covered on our show!

Give it a listen!
