The Outer Limits and The World Beyond were contemporaries. I remember The World Beyond being aired on Sat. nites in the DC area.
Found in the internet: "The World Beyond was a 1960s TV show on WTTG Channel 5 that showed Sci Fi/Horror movies on (I think) Saturday nights from about 9:30 to 11:00 PM. Thats all I can remember but I loved that show! "
Yep, that's the way I remember it!
And the Outer Limits was a great show. I remember having nightmares for *months* after they aired the show which had these giant ants with big heads on them - CREEPY. Another show that followed The Twilight Zone was Rod Serling's Night Gallery. This was back when TV was truly great. The Night Gallery had one episode where these bugs (earwigs) would crawl into your ear and eat your brain as you died a slow, agonizing death. Only one guy survived, but there was a cruel twist to this...You'll have to look it up, I won't spoil it here...
Ah, The World Beyond was a local movie show. I thought it was a national show, no wonder I don't remember it.
Must have been something like "Strange Tales" and "Chiller" that were broadcast in the Los Angeles area. Those gave way to "Seymour's Fright Night" and then "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark." Then Saturday Night Live came out and I stopped watching those other shows.
How about sci-fi cartoons? Anyone remember "Colonel Bleep"? I think it aired on the Engineer Bill show in the LA area. A little alien looking guy who wore a glass helmet and lived on Zero Zero Island, he flew by peddling his legs like he was on a bicycle.
Ah, here's a pic, seems he had a sidekick that looks like Barney Rubble, that's his nemesis down on the right. Like Superman, he righted wrong.
The New MAN OF STEEL -liked it and it had a nice retro feel on kripton. They were advanced but messed up the planet. Then the storm scene - WOW now thats hardcore. I have to say tho I was waiting for -THIS IS SPARTA! Watch it tho its worth it.
