Buck Rogers Pop-Up Book (1980)

Buck Rogers

“The year is 1987 and NASA launches the last of America’s deep space probes. In a freak mishap Ranger 3 and its pilot Captain William ‘Buck’ Rogers are blown out of their trajectory into an orbit which freezes his life support systems and returns Buck Rogers to Earth 500 years later.”

Check out this sweet book my wife found last week in a library overstock sale! It’s a Buck Rogers pop-up book from 1980. Its 28 years old, looks brand new, and has sixteen pages of pop-up action. I took a few pictures to share, so here you go!

Also, I’ve included the Buck Rogers theme song for your listening enjoyment. I love this theme! If you can’t play it, right click here to download it.

    Damn. I actually remember owning that book when I was a kid. Buck Rodgers was one of my first scifi loves, even before Doctor Who.

    i like how on the cover, the city is inside some geodesic dome, while Buck can just stand out on the desolate planet with a smile like the Joker just gassed him…
