Radar Men From The Moon: Final Chapter

Well kids, I hope all of you have enjoyed the adventures of Commando Cody in his epic fight against the forces of Retik, Master of the Moon.

Republic pictures produced three of these "Rocketman" serials:

KING OF THE ROCKETMEN
RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON
ZOMBIES OF THE STRATOSPHERE

They also created a half hour television show which featured COMMANDO CODY as the Sky Marshall of the Universe, (pictured below) THE PURPLE MONSTER STRIKES, and FLYING DISC MAN FROM MARS.



All of these wonderful serials provided the inspiration for Dave Stevens' THE ROCKETEER comic book, which was later made into a feature film.



Now sit back, relax (as much as your excitement will allow) and have fun rocketing through the stratosphere... just click on the CORRECT picture to witness the death of a moon man!

Damn! For some reason, the last two chapters refused to download, so I won't be able to see the conclusion unless...Bill, is there an URL you can give me?

It appears the connection is down right now at the source - but it does work, as I tested it last night.

Thanks for the link, Bill. I used the 'download' instead of 'streaming' link and watched the ending. Cute!
