Spaced Invaders

Synopsis: When one saucer of an invasion force has engine trouble, it lands on Earth. It happens to be Halloween and it happens the invaders are only about 4 feet tall. As the bumbling aliens wander around the countryside they are taken to be children and they make friends with two children, one of whom is the daughter of the sheriff. As their troubles mount (it's difficult for five aliens to conquer a world) they begin to give up their plans of conquest, but then there is that nasty killer robot.

From what? Cows?

Do we have any Krazy giue?

Um, I think it's in that box.

- What's the matter?

- Everyone's gonna show up dressed llke...

scarecrows, pigs, and ciowns and stuff.


I'm not sure Big Bean

is ready for allens.

[ Radio Announcer ] Achoo!

Sorry about that folks.

This being Halloween night...

I thought it'd be fun to

dust off an old favorite...

from the golden days of radio.

50 years ago tonight, Orson Welles...

gave a depressed nation a few hours...

of desperateiy needed fun.

Things being the way

they are these days...

we couid sure use a llttie of that.

So, Big Bean...

just for tonight...

forget your woes and have a good time.

[ Record ] The Columbia Broadcasting

System and its affiliated stations...

present Orson Welles and

the Mercury Theatre...

in "the War of the Worlds. "

Ladies and gentlemen...

the director and star of

these broadcasts, Orson Welles.

[ Orson Welles ] We know now in the

early years of the 20th century...

this world was being watched

closely by intelligences...

greater than man's, yet

as mortal as his own.

We know that as humans

busied themselves...

about their various concerns...

they were scrutinized and studied...

perhaps almost as narrowly

as a man with a microscope...

might scrutinize the

transient creatures...

that swarm and multiply

in a drop of water.

With infinite complacence...

people went about

their little affairs...

serene in the assurance

of their dominion...

over this small, spinning

fragment of solar driftwood...

which by chance or design...

man has inherited out of the

dark mystery of time and space.

Yet, across an immense ethereal gulf...

minds that are to our minds...

as ours are to the

beasts in the jungle...

intellects vast, cool

and unsympathetic...

regarded this Earth with envious eyes...
