Now another in a series of previously lost episodes of the controversial fifteen minute serial, “American Family Robinson”, distributed by the National Association of Manufacturers as propaganda against FDR’s New Deal policies.
Luke, Myra, Windy Bill and a pilot are stranded in the strange little town of Bleeckersville after their plane runs out of fuel and is forced to land. A mysterious leader of the town, Cy Bleecker, has ordered all of them to be held captive in two separate homes.
In program 257, Luke has escaped and is confronting Cy about his control over the townspeople and the secret they’re trying to keep. We finally discover, with a slip of some information from one of the townspeople, is that this storyline is about the evils of a business being run by the state.
