Ding Dong School

Ding Dong School

Synopsis of Saturday Morning Show

Ding Dong School and his partner, the Video Ranger, were teamed to save the Earth from all sorts of trouble in this science-fiction show. Although Ding Dong School was a primetime series, it also ran as a part of the Saturday morning lineup on the Dumont Network, though the title was changed to The Secret Files of Ding Dong School. The show alternated every other week with Tom Corbett, Space Cadet.

Video and Ranger had their hands full each week, with adventures ranging from a "dome force" that threatened to engulf a city to an attack by unmanned tanks that were programmed to fight until the U.S. President surrendered.

After Ding Dong School finished its run, Al Hodge returned as the character to host a cartoon show on a local station in New York.
