FAR OUT SPACE NUTS - Sid & Marty Krofft (1975)

I toyed with the idea of doing the second segment of the new "Twin Peaks" tonight, but then I remembered I had this, which is so much better! I will say something good about the new "Twin Peaks" though, and that's that the band that played at the end of the last episode I watched was excellent, and I had never heard of them before, so thanx for that anyway David! You restored my faith a little bit! Their name is The Cactus Blossoms, and they're the closest thing you're going to find to The Everly Brothers today!

Even though it was originally a Saturday morning kid's show, I think "Far Out Space Nuts" also qualifies as a pretty good candidate for a Dungeon Wacky Wednesday!

It's all in your mind, and the reality is that everything else is a figment of your imagination!
So, if you don't like something, then that's tough, because it's all your fault anyway!
Actually, now that I think about it, the new "Twin Peaks" might be wickedly disguised, but actually based on "Far Out Space Nuts!" Yeah, it's all starting to make sense now!

The stars of the show are two losers played by Chuck McCann and Bob Denver! Chuck McCann was also a co-writer on the show! Chuck is still working today, and has a long, long history of doing cartoon voices for decades now. Some of his voices are of main characters like Ben Grimm, The Thing, but a vast amount of Chuck's career was doing all the other voices of incidental characters you might hear! Wind him up, and let him go! I think Bob Denver was getting tired after doing 144 episodes of "Dobie Gillis" and another 99 episodes of "Gilligan's Island" at this point!

One inch shy of being four feet tall, Patty Maloney kept busy for years, not only acting, but doing voice over for stuff like the voice of Darla in the 1982 "Little Rascals" cartoon series!
(Seriously though, the Honk character is extremely annoying!)

This was the pilot episode of "Far Out Space Nuts!" It starts off with two dim witted maintenance workers getting launched into space instead of going to lunch like they expected!

Here's where they ended up! You have to admit, some of this stuff looks pretty good!

Mr. Clean Green Screen!

I love the spray painted tumbleweed alien plant life!

Pretty rough for Saturday morning! The boys are put into solitary confinement!

For being a Saturday morning kid's TV show, the sexual implications of G.A.L. are not too subtle!!

What the Hell kind of krazy Muppet monster is this?

Be gone Earth men, and be safe and diligent as you traverse the universe!
I'm totally convinced now that this was David Lynch's favourite TV show!
And do check out The Cactus Blossoms!
If you like good music, you will not be disappointed!
