THE PHANTOM PLANET - Leith Stevens/Ted Roberts - "Main Theme" (1961)

Recycled music from "World Without End" was once again used by Ted Roberts with the cooperation of music supervisor Gordon Zahler, who we know from his work on Ed Wood Jr's "Plan 9 From Outer Space" & "Night Of The Ghouls," and was able to squeeze even more life out of this music, just one year later. Add some more stuff again & this time you've got the theme song to "The Phantom Planet." I'm sure a lot of children were devastated mentally after seeing Lieutenant Webb, played by TV kiddie show 'cartoon host' venquilitrist, Jimmy Weldon vaporized in the first few minutes of this film, and so, what exactly happened to Webster Webfoot at that point in time anyhow?
