Running for 106 episodes in the 1970’s, The Wonderful Stories of Professor Kitzel was produced by Shamus Culhane for Krantz Films Inc. It starred Paul Soles as Professor Kitzel.
The show would open with a discussion by Professor Kitzel introducing the subject. He would then take the viewer to his time machine, pull a lever and the first series of drawings and commentary related to the subject would begin. Halfway through the story, the professor would interrupt the commentary to make some humorous remark, before returning to the narrative with an invitation to “Let’s see what happened next.” Each episode concluded with some humorous closing sequence.
