Saturday morning kid's show of the 1970s.

Just watched about 70% of the episodes on YouTube.

The first short season of just eight 25 minute adventures is highly entertaining...in a crazy science fiction sort of way. Very repetitive in general presentation (music cues, stock footage, filming locations, zero characterisation) but one hell of a lot of fun to watch! The kid playing Wildboy does not say much but who cares.

The first season episode titled - UFO - is probably my favourite as this has elements of Lost In Space (1965), The Time Tunnel (1966) and QM's The Invaders (1967).

Only seen some of season two (Invasion, Space Prisoner, Titan, Mummy, Vampire, Outlaw Bigfoot).

Season two attempted to address the above mentioned repetitive issues but failed totally. Yes it added different music cues but the new music sucked. Yes it had more variety in locations but somehow season one just felt better in every way. Also, in season two Wildboy's blonde hair was now so thick and long that he now looked like Wildgirl.

In a nutshell, do what ever you can to catch season one but only watch season two if you have nothing to do on a Sunday afternoon.
