If you are about my age then chances are you have seen Captain Future in the past. Maybe he was one of your childhood heroes. Although originally aimed at teenagers and/or adults the show became very popular with kids.

Some things that didn´t bother me as a child: Every story had four parts. In Germany, with one exception, they took the four parts and made it a three parter with a lot of content ending on the cutting room floor. When I watch it now, as an adult, I notice that huge parts of the story are missing, there are gaping holes in the continuity of the plots.

I still love the show. After all - how do you abandon a childhood hero?
