In 1948, Robert Heinlein published his futuristic novel, Space Cadet. Two years later, Tom Corbett, Space Cadet, the adventure story of three space cadets preparing to become offices of the Solar Guards in the 24th century, debuted on CBS television.

Though the show moved to ABC after one season, it had built a strong enough fanbase to remain on air for a total of five seasons. During its run, merchandising was extensive. Everything from toys to lunch boxes to space goggles and Space Academy premiums offered by Kellogg's were up for grabs.

Veteran actor Frankie Thomas received tons of fan mail from viewers who'd signed up as avowed members of the Tom Corbett, Space Cadet club. Many of the premiums offered during the show's run are worth hundreds in mint condition. Among the most valuable items are the Tom Corbett Butter-Nut Bread End Label Album #1, which will bring in a whopping $750 and the Kellogg's Pep cereal boxes with the "Tom Corbett Space Goggles" offer and the 1952 Pep box with Astro, a character from Venus, featured on the back, both of which are worth $600.

Aside from television, Tom Corbett, Space Cadet also made a foray into the newspaper market, appearing in a Field Newspaper Syndicate comic from 1951-1953 and in comic books from 1952 to 1955. The show also aired on ABC radio and NBC simulcast in 1952, 1954 and 1955.
