Hi, I am trying to find an outer space show from the late 60s early 70s that started with 2 astronauts in a rocket crashing on the moon. They were cartoons while the beginning credits rolled. It was on between the University Bowl then this show and then star trek in December. I really liked the show but I can't remember it.

Was that the one where Andy Griffith invented a new kind of fuel (Mytohydrazine, if I recall correctly)? His premise what that rather than massively accelerate and then coast, his fuel would allow slow but constant acceleration and thus get there using much less fuel than the NASA approach.

I've never heard of this one -- so was it worth watching or not?

I really hate to bring up Salvage I - an ABC series starring Andy Griffith as a junkman (all right - recycling specialist) who decided to build a spaceship and recycle NASA junk. Isaac Asimov was the science adviser, but this didn't really seem to help much, as you have to be able to follow advice... It ran a season and a half, then was forgotten until recently, when DARPA decided to spend big bucks on doing this in real life.

"Glory Road", yes please! If you know a little of fencing, a wonderful book which would make a great film. Just remains to decide which starlet should play Star.

The only time I've heard that name "Adam Adamant" is in the "Nightside" series of books by Simon Green -- Until you posted this comment, I had thought that Adam was a purely fictional character (grin)

I'd forgotten that the Martian Chronicles came out as a TV mini-series -- they were fantastic stories to read and I thought that (for the time) the TV interpretation was very well done indeed... ...I don;t think we got the Ray Bradbury theater in the UK (but I might be wrong on that)

Did we actually get through like a hundred comments without mention of "The Martian Chronicles" TV series and "Ray Bradbury Theater"? They were 80's TV, but that was so long ago that it seems close enough to me.
