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.

From the middle of nowhere in the Pacific Northwest, I contribute to the Retroist, write for trivia publications, and blog about music in a humorous fashion. I feel about "Back to the Future" the way you feel about "Star Wars." Also, I'm married and have a child (sorry ladies, orphans).
