Who Watched Emergency! The TV Show?

The story behind this meeting I was able to be onsite for is pretty amazing. The 50 year celebration for the (amazing – and part of my childhood) TV show Emergency! was scheduled for 2021. With COVID gathering regulations in place, the 50 year anniversary celebration was postponed. Lucky for me, I was on another event and Denny Hare the producer for the Emergency! 50 year event was a part of that meeting, we talked, I was invited to join the team for the now delayed 51st celebration of the TV show! The theater was amazing. The tech “pit” was literally under the audience seating with 5′ ceilings (note all the caution tape in photo!).

I did get to see, but not formally meet, Randy Mantooth (John Gage) and Kevin Tighe (Roy DeSoto) and the real Engine 51! Sometimes work is just amazing!

Wrapping This Series with Troy’s Favorite – Space Invaders!

The absolute classic arcade game (based on my childhood and stacks of Quarters spent at the local arcade) is Space Invaders!

Space Invaders was released in 1978, created by Tomohiro Nishikado. It is one of the earliest shooting games and the goal is to defeat waves of aliens with a laser cannon to earn as many points as possible. Above is the original promotional flyer for the video game and shows the title graphic was a bigger design element than the actual game play. The game title was designed based on the font ITC Machine.

Troy’s template integrates the game colors into the preset color scheme, has the iconic game name text treatment as vector art, and many of the actual game icons. Download the template free here:SpaceInvaders_16x9 Template
