The Captain Video Oath

Congratulations! You are now eligible for membership in the honorable order of Video Rangers!

Now repeat after me, the oath:

"We, as official Video Rangers, hereby promise to abide by the Ranger code and to support forever the cause of freedom, truth and justice throughout the universe."

And just like that you are one of the members of the 22nd century crime fighting force on the children's science fiction series Captain Video and His Video Rangers (1947-57).

Led by Captain Video (Richard Coogan/Al Hodges), the Video Rangers patrolled the solar system in the rocketship Galaxy.

Reciting the oath along with Captain Video and His Video Rangers were thousand of young TV viewers who religiously sent in for their official memberships and Captain Video Helmets ($1.00 plus Box Top), Captain Video rings (25 cents plus box top), and plastic ray gun (25 cents plus wrapper from Power House candy bar).
