Due to reasons, I’m scanning my old science fiction club’s old newsletters, and one of them mentioned a series called Captain Z-Ro, which the editor watched as a kid, and nobody else seemed to remember existing.

Thank you, Internet Archive.

This is the hard stuff. I am serious, this is kind of amazing. Not good, don’t get that idea, but… wow.


Captain Zero’s Laboratory


Captain Zero in his lab. Golly!

See also: Colonel Bleep. I kind of unironically like some of the design in Colonel Bleep but wow it’s not good either. XD But at the same time, they’re both swimming in that weird retro cliche charm. If Sparks Nevada, Marshall on Mars had actually been a period TV show, it would’ve looked kind of like this.

This is where, if I could actually find any episode with English subs (or dubs, I'm not choosy, but subs are probably more likely), I would have linked to the Swedish 70s kid's TV series "Kapten Zoom" (there's some eps on YouTube, but they all seem to feature Swedish quite heavily, might be worth a look for the visuals, if nothing else).

Yep, that intro totes brings back memories (also, the announcer heard at the beginning of the clip has QUITE a strong Stockholm accent).
