The Young Astronauts

I was not a big CBS Saturday Morning kind of guy, other than Muppet Babies and Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, but this comic book ad is tremendous, both for Hulk Hogan’s near-naked presence and for the touting of the new show The Young Astronauts. You probably don’t remember that show, because it never actually aired. Pushed to mid-season and scheduled to debut in early 1986, CBS pulled it in the wake of the Challenger shuttle explosion.
