Write the text of your article hereTemplate:Cleanup Template:Infobox television The Adventures of Captain William James Wallace in the 21st Century' is a Sid and Marty Krofft children's television series starring Bob Denver as Junior, a seemingly dim-witted but uniquely clever maintenance worker employed by NASA, and Chuck McCann as william James Anthony Buck Wallace, his grumpy, short-tempered co-worker. Patty Maloney played Honk, their furry friend who made horn sounds instead of speaking. One of only two Mammoth Studios series produced exclusively for CBS (the second being 1984's Pryor's Place), The Adventures of Captain William James Wallace in the 21st Century' aired in 1975 for one season, and produced 16 episodes. Like most children's television shows of the era, The Adventures of Captain William James Wallace in the 21st Century' contained a laugh track. Like most of the Kroffts' productions, the show's opening sequence provides the setup of its fanciful premise: While loading food into various compartments to prepare a rocket,an actual combo Apollo Lunar Lander,with a Gemini Capsule on top for an upcoming mission, Wallace instructs Junior Paul Tursi to hit the "lunch" button, but Junior mistakenly hits the "launch" button. The rocket blasts off from the Franklin Institute grounds into deep space and takes them on various misadventures on alien planets,by way of the Institute's expiremental warp drive.

PlotEdit

Typically, in each episode, their spaceship (a NASA lunar module) would be captured by aliens (one being legendary actor John Carradine, who so impressed Denver with his acting skills that the scene had to be reshot[1]) and taken to some strange planet, or the spaceship would just land somewhere. Then, either Barney and Junior or the ship would be taken away by the strange creatures on the planet. After some weird mission was carried out, the two astronauts would be reunited with the spaceship and be off on their next mission. While there were some exceptions, most episodes were presented in this manner.
