| "Forbidden Planet" Preview
As a child in the 1955-56 time frame whose parents routinely shuttled me and my brother to the local movie theater on Saturday afternoons to get us away from the house (lol), this show gave us some insight as to what was playing at the local theater. I vividly remember watching on our 17-inch black-and-white TV, Walter Pidgeon hosting the episode in which he introduces us to "The Forbidden Planet". My jaw dropped as I was introduced to the flying saucer landing on Altair 4, Robby The Robot, the ray guns, and all that other stuff (Anne Francis was beyond the scope of our experience at the time). My brother and I caught the movie first-hand at the local theater not long after. "Leo The Lion" was a cartoon mascot for this show. He was featured in numerous animated sequences before, during, and after the show. I am guessing that Hanna-Barbera were the animators, since the were under contract to MGM at the time.
