I used to watch this as a kid growing up in the old DDR (i.e. Eastern Germany). We didn't have much else but canned food (sauerkraut and wienerschnitzel) and Russian polka music but we had one thing: We got TV rays from the free West thru the wall and we could watch Die Phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion. It made all the difference. It was truly wunderbar!
Alright-alright, I discovered Raumpatrouille Orion via the German satellite TV channel Sat1 in the early 90s and I've got the complete German box set release that came out a few years back. Unfortunately, it's not English friendly (but this clip is [albeit wobbly]).
