My favorite TV show when I was 7

The announcer was Jack Narz who went on to be a game show host on Concentration, Beat the Clock, Now You See It and Dotto. What most people don’t know is that Narz was a fighter pilot in the China-Burma-India theatre of World War II and won the Distinguished Flying Cross.

Keep that in mind when you watch him pimping for the Space Patrol Cosmic Smoke Gun while wearing that uniform that makes him look like a car hop at a ‘50s drive-in restaurant. Narz died in 2008 at the age of 85.

Ed Kemmer,who played Buzz Corry, was also a WWII fighter pilot who was shot down and spent the rest of the war as a POW. He was 83 when he died in 2004.
