- Nightmare Fuel - It's surprising that the kids of the 60's who watched this weren't scarred for life at the death toll. At least 6 people die per episode -- people EXPLODE, fall out of airplanes, fall off dams, get crushed by car lifts, get run over, get shot in the FACE, and turn into living bombs.
- Captain Black is Nightmare Fuel incarnate.
