    Guess the Year #46 (spacekids edition)

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I have no idea of the year but I'm pretty sure the kid in the middle grows up to be the Joker.

    1962 that spaceship on helmet 3 looks an awful lot like the Dyna-Soar.

    Hint: does that helmet on the left have writing on it?

    Captain Video

    I actually remember Captain Video on TV and it was old then. I say 1953.

    I vote for 1959.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    1952 sounds good to me.

    And I'm flying with the monkeys on this one: 1953. I never saw the show (even I am too young for that) but think it would have taken a few years for the show to become popular enough and for someone to figure out a product tie-in. The show went off the air in 1955, so it has to be before that, and after 1949, when it went on the air.

    We've got three correct guesses for 1953, but the win goes to resident curmudgeon TomR for getting it first (and bonus old guy awe points for actually remembering seeing the Captain Video show)!
