Tonight's OTR show,stars the popular crime fighting duo of OTR; Kato and the Green Hornet in a classic;"The Bus Accident". Enjoy, the staff of sjdsNOW.

The Green Hornet is a fictional character, a masked crime fighter. Originally created by Fran Striker for an American old-time radio program in the 1930s, the character has appeared in other media as well, including film serials in the 1940s, a network television program in the 1960s, and multiple comic book series from the 1940s to the 1990s. Though various incarnations sometimes change details, in most incarnations the Green Hornet is Britt (or "Brit") Reid, a newspaper publisher by day who by night goes out in his masked "Green Hornet" identity to fight crime as a vigilante, accompanied by his similarly masked Asian manservant Kato and driving a car, equipped with advanced technology, called "Black Beauty". The Green Hornet is often portrayed as a fair-to-above average hand-to-hand combatant and is often armed with a gun that sprays knock-out gas and an electric stun weapon called the "hornet's sting."

Originally, the show was to be called "The Hornet", but the name was changed to "The Green Hornet" so that it could be more easily trademarked. The color was chosen because green hornets were reputed to be the angriest

The commercials on some of these shows really bring back good memories.
