The whole story starts here as Gordon Shumway, a Melmacian who escaped his planet before it was destroyed, crash lands into the garage of the Tanner family.

Man I had a huge crush on Andrea Elson :)
Season 1 Episode 13 "Run, Steve, Run"

Season 1 Episode 12 "The Coward"
Special Guest Star: George Takei (Star Trek TOS)
'My Little Girl', an airplane missing since World War II has been uncovered in the Himalayas thanks to a recent earthquake.

Season 1 Episode 11 "Burning Bright"
Special Guest stars: William Shatner (Star Trek TOS, T.J. Hooker, Tekwar, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Boston Legal), Anne Schedeen (ALF)
Astronaut Josh Lang has been acting even more far out than usual after being affected by a mysterious electrical field during his last spacewalk. Lang's friend and colleague Steve Austin is called in to evaluate his sanity. Steve soon realizes there is a method to Josh's madness, as he develops strange powers of the mind that can make dolphins and men do his bidding.
William Shatner's character is exposed to an electrical field in space, which supercharges his mind and gives him extraordinary powers. Eight years earlier, he starred in Star Trek: Where No Man Has Gone Before (1966), in which a character's mind developed extraordinary powers due to its exposure to a magnetic storm in space.
The footage at the beginning of this episode is of Ed White's spacewalk during 1965 Gemini 4 mission. He was the first American to walk in space and was later killed in the Apollo 1 fire.
Season 1 Episode 10 "The Last of the Fourth of July's"
Special Guest Stars: Steve Forrest (S.W.A.T., Amazon Women on the Moon, Team KnightRider), Kevin Tighe (Emergency!, Escape to Witch Mountain, Roadhouse), Arlene Martel (Star Trek TOS, Mighty Aphrodite, A Walk to Remember)
A mercenary-for-hire plans to assassinate several world leaders at a summit using a high powered laser beam that will bounce off a satellite unless Col. Steve Austin can infiltrate his base and stop the mastermind before he sets his plan into motion. Of course it involves a bit of a challenge: Steve has to be fired onto the villain's island lair inside a torpedo casing, climb a dangerous precipice, vault a 30-foot high electrified fence and break into a secure compound. And then, of course, there's all the villain's henchmen to defeat...not to mention his deviously beautiful accomplice who may not be all she claims to be.
One of the last episodes to show Steve Austin either killing or being responsible for the deaths of his enemies.
Richard Anderson, Steve Forrest, Kevin Tighe, Tom Reese, Barry Cahill and Ben Wright also appeared in Bonanza (1959).
Richard Anderson, Tom Reese, Arlene Martel, and Ben Wright also appeared in The Wild Wild West (1965).

Stars: Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Robert Shaw, Dana Elcar
Two grifters team up to pull off the ultimate con.
George Roy Hill tried to find locations in Chicago and Los Angeles that had not been touched by modern civilization to use for some of the scenes. In Los Angeles, locations such as The Green Hotel, the Santa Monica Carousel and The Biltmore Hotel were all used. Chicago's Union Station was also used along with LaSalle Street Station. Producer Tony Bill also contributed to the film's authentic look by helping to round up a number of period automobiles in the Southern California area.
This is the only Oscar nomination for acting Robert Redford has received.
Season 1 Episode 8 "Rescue of Athena One"
Special Guest Star: Farrah Fawcett Majors (Charlie's Angels, Logan's Run, Saturn 3, The Burning Bed)
Steve Austin has been assigned to train America's first female astronaut Major Kelly Wood. On her maiden-flight, a sudden explosion damages the Athena 1 and injures Kelly's co-pilot Osterman. Austin heads the rescue-team and follows her up to Skylab, only to find his bionic replacements malfunctioning in outer space.
Farrah Fawcett Majors would be remembered of sorts for passing away many hours before and then being overshadowed by Michael Jackson's death on the same day (25th June 2009).
This episode is of course based on the actual crippled-spacecraft event from Apollo 13; during Steve and Kelly's second spacewalk, the footage even includes an actual b&w photo of A13's damaged service-module, showing the missing blasted-out side-panels and the exposed internal components.
Season 1 Episode 7 "Eyewitness to Murder"
Leaving a restaurant around midnight, Steve Austin witnesses a murder and gets a good look at the sniper thanks to his bionic eye. Oscar objects to Austin's involvement in the case until it transpires the actual target that night was attorney Lorin Sandusky.

Special Guest Star: Gary Collins (The Sixth Sense, Born Free)

Stars: Ringo Starr, Dustin Hoffman, Paul Frees
A father tells his son a bedtime story about young Oblio, who believes that having no point in the fantastical kingdom of pointed heads and things, still has a point.
Although Ringo Starr narrates the film, Harry Nilsson narrated the original soundtrack album. Fun fact: the soundtrack to this movie was released by RCA Records. On the cover of this album, Nipper, the RCA dog, has a pointed head.
When the kids start selecting players for the triangle toss, they call for Harry, Fred, and Richard. They are in reference to singer and Writer Harry Nilsson, Director Fred Wolf, and Narrator Ringo Starr a.k.a. Richard Starkey.
Stars: Ruth Warrick, Bobby Driscoll, James Baskett
Trigger Warning: This film is set in the Post civil war Reconstruction era South. All of the people on the aunt's plantation are paid workers/servants NOT slaves. If, however, you wish to ignore that fact, and to also ignore the fact the Walt Disney himself refused to watch the premiere of Song of The South in Atlanta because in 1946 Atlanta was still very much segregated and Walt chose not to go to the premiere out of solidarity for the black actors who were refused admittance to their own film premiere...then you are best served to not watch this film. I may also add that the stories of bre'r rabbit, fox, bear, etc... were all based on stories from Africa and were the "Aesop's Fables" of their time and land and that the stories they told were of persevering against adversity and that it isn't always the strong or fast who win, that with cunning, persistence, and honor you can overcome any challenge. Everyone needs a laughing place, and Uncle Remus gives us one of the best.
The kindly story-teller Uncle Remus tells a young boy stories about trickster Br'er Rabbit, who outwits Br'er Fox and slow-witted Br'er Bear.
After abandoning his studies of pharmacology for financial reasons, James Baskett supported himself as an actor, moving from his home town of Indianapolis, Indiana to New York City, New York and joining the company of Bill Robinson, better known as Mr. Bojangles. After achieving moderate success on the stage, Baskett and his family moved to Hollywood where he found work in a couple of films. In 1945, he auditioned for a bit part of voicing a talking butterfly in the new Disney feature film Song of the South (1946). "I thought that, maybe, they'd try me out to furnish the voice for one of Uncle Remus' animals," Baskett remarked. Upon review of his voice, Walt Disney wanted to meet Baskett personally, and had him tested for the role of Uncle Remus. Not only did Baskett get the part of the butterfly's voice, but also the voice of Br'er Fox and the live-action role of Uncle Remus as well. Additionally, Baskett filled in as the voice of Br'er Rabbit for Johnny Lee in the "Laughing Place" scene after Lee was called away to do promotion for the picture. Disney liked Baskett, and told his sister Ruth [Disney] that Baskett was "the best actor, I believe, to be discovered in years". This was one of the first Hollywood portrayals of a black actor as a non-comic character in a leading role in a film meant for general audiences. Even after the film's release, Disney maintained contact with Baskett, where the two became close friends, like brothers. Disney also campaigned for Baskett to be given an Academy Award for his performance, saying that he had worked "almost wholly without direction" and had devised the characterization of Remus himself. Thanks to Disney's efforts, Baskett won an Honorary Academy Award in 1948. Four months after the Academy Awards ceremony, James Baskett died from heart failure resulting from diabetes. After his death, James' widow, Margaret, wrote a letter to Disney and told him that he had been a "friend indeed and [we] certainly have been in need."
Stars: Butch Patrick, Hans Conried, Mel Blanc |
Milo is a boy who is bored with life. One day he comes home to find a toll booth in his room. Having nothing better to do, he gets in his toy car and drives through - only to emerge in a world full of adventure.
The author of the book, upon which this film is based, Norton Juster, did not like this picture and was even angry that it received positive reviews. He had no input into the adaptation, and many characters that were in the book were not included in the film.
This film was actually made in 1967-8 but due to MGM's financial problems and frequently changing management, the film was not heavily promoted. When it was finally released in 1970, the studio only exhibited it for matinees on weekends for two weeks, and it was not a box office success.
MGM's first full-length animated film, and the last film the studio released to include live action and animation. MGM's animation studio closed soon after this film's release.
Created 9 months, 2 weeks ago.
Going to be using this "channel" as a place to post Public Domain videos that I find from various (well known and sourced) sites on the internet. Eventually, when I get some better equipment and a better handle on how do to things on BitChute I will start another channel for movie reviews and perhaps one for discussions for comic books/politics or whatever else anyone may want to chat about. Thank you for taking the time to read this/watch these videos. ~Doc
