Stump the King - Nickelodeon

Jack Webb & Harry MorganI got a great question from a reader named Paul this week...

"I am looking (for) the name (of) a series on very early Nickelodeon? 83 or 84. It featured a young group of kids who would solve mysteries and other such problems and they wore teleportation belts. It was science fictiony and reminded me of BBC programs, but I can't remember the name of the show. Please help!"

Well, Paul, as most of the readers know, the show you're referring to was, indeed a BBC show called The Tomorrow People. It aired on BBC in the '70s but Nickelodeon ran episodes in the 80's for American viewers. The show was remade in the '90s and ran for a few seasons but failed to catch on like the original.

Now on to this week's question...

When Nick at Nite started airing Dragnet, what night was it on?

Way to go Mike Davis, Friday is the correct answer.

Correction to the above. They could teleport ("Jaunt") naturally, but it was very difficult. The belts kept them in contact with T.I.M. their alien supercomputer, and allowed him to augment their natural jaunting ability.

God I loved that show.

Also in reference to The Tomorrow People...they didnt wear teleportation belts, they could actually just teleport.

Paul,

The Tomorrow People originally ran on ITV/Thames. It was their answer to Doctor Who.
