Late in 1999, Universal Studios of Central Florida began to wind down a five year investment of transforming Orlando into one of the country's leading centers for television and film production. Though in previous ye ars production groups regularly produced material in town to avoid the high union wages of the west coast, both at Universal and MGM Studios, high players like Viacom pulled out...taking with them the syndicated likes of Sea Quest, Super Force, Swamp Thing, Super Boy...assorted Wrestling and Roller Derby programs...a live action Tarzan show... To this day, investors and producers remain in courts The Spider! out the mess. I know little of how they did things at MGM, but I worked for a number of people stationed at Universal's 22 A building...host of some twenty-two independent companies. This sericel...and others like it... are prototypes for a product intended to be sold in a number of galleries and shops. No contracts were finalized. This is the earliest example of a modern looking giant robot attacking a city that I have encountered. They didn't call them the roaring twenties for nothing! This image originally appeared as the cover of Weird Tales Magazine, Popular Fiction, 1926. Also this week... Torchy! Dragon Woman! The Beatles Lament! Giant Robot, 1927! Ghoul Party!
