El Cachorro – Asalto a Almu帽茅car (Portada n潞 120)

El cachorro fue una serie de cuadernos de aventuras creada por Juan Garc铆a Iranzo y publicada por Editorial Bruguera entre 1951 y 1960 en forma de follet铆n.

El primer ejemplar de la colecci贸n se public贸 en diciembre de 1951. El autor se inspir贸 para la creaci贸n de esta serie en las pel铆culas de piratas estadounidenses de los a帽os treinta, como 鈥El capit谩n Blood鈥 o 鈥El Corsario Negro鈥, as铆 como en el libro 鈥El m茅dico de los piratas鈥, las memorias del m茅dico del famoso capit谩n Morgan. Por otro lado, Iranzo ya hab铆a realizado anteriormente una historieta de piratas, El pirata desconocido (revista Chicos, 1945).

Hasta su desaparici贸n en 1960 llegaron a publicarse un total de 213 n煤meros en formato de cuadernillos de aventuras. El autor prefiri贸 acabar la serie, a pesar de su 茅xito, en lugar de plegarse a las exigencias de Bruguera, que pretend铆a aumentar el ritmo de publicaci贸n, lo que hubiese obligado a Iranzo a ceder su personaje a otros dibujantes.

Posteriormente tuvo una reedici贸n 1976 en forma de cuadernos, pero comenzando en su lucha contra los piratas berberiscos, y en 1983 en su formato original.

Retro publicidad: The VideoBrain Family Computer聽(model 101) is an聽8-bit聽home computer聽manufactured by聽Umtech聽Incorporated, starting in 1977. It is based on the聽Fairchild Semiconductor聽F8聽CPU. It was not a large commercial success and was discontinued from the market less than three years after its initial release. Some of its lack of success has been attributed to the decision to substitute the聽APL/S聽programming language over the then-standard聽BASIC. Due to the high cost of聽RAM聽memory, it only contained 1聽KB. It had a full-travel keyboard, unlike some early home computers that featured membrane keypads (and earlier kit machines that used switches), but with a very non-standard layout. It was designed by Dr. David Chung and Dr. Albert Yu

Miss Katrina Van Televox

Much like her robotic brother Herbert Televox, robot Miss Katrina Van Televox toured the country demonstrating Westinghouse products. According to this ad in the October 3, 1930聽Altoona Mirror (Altoona, PA) Miss Van Televox talks, answers the phone, runs a vacuum cleaner and makes coffee.

Adding the supposed cost of this robot to the ad, $22,000, was yet another way to give that feeling of inevitability which pops up repeatedly in 1930鈥檚 discussions of robots.

鈥淜atrina talks鈥 answers the phone鈥 runs a vacuum cleaner鈥 makes coffee and toast鈥 turns the lights on and off and does it all willingly at command from Mr. T. Barnard the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Expert who is accompanying her on her tour. The audience will also assist Mr. Barnard in making Katrina work. Her appearance here at The American Legion Home is her first in Altoona and women of this city are cordially invited by the Penn Central Light & Power Co., sponsors of her visit, to attend her personal appearance.鈥

鈥淜atrina is chief demonstrator of the famous Westinghouse Flavor Zone range and is the sister of Herbert Televox famous metal man who has shown before many scientific gatherings. As Katrina鈥檚 stay in Altoona is limited, The Penn Central Company ask all who wish to view these amazing demonstrations to plan their visit early. The admission is Free.鈥
