Walter is a mild-mannered police computer expert who developed a program of fact
and personality traits which described the ultimate crime fighter. Because of a
freak accident (where would sci-fi be without the "freak" accident), the
circuits of Walter's computer overloaded and out jumped a shimmering holographic
humanoid creation called Automan, who was the embodiment of the perfect crime
fighting statistics previously fed into the computer banks. Since Automan was
the ultimate in crime fighting Walter used him to help solve police

property and salvage. His cabin cruiser is called The Argonaut. Note: On the
1980s revival series Sea Hunt the boat is called "The Sea Hunt." Mike’s boat

NELSON, Ozzie & wife, Harriet
(The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet)
822 Sycamore Road
Hillsdale, USA (Southern California)
Ozzie is retired bandleader. Harriet is a former singer. They share their home
with sons, David [the oldest] and Eric "Ricky" [a.k.a. "The Irrepressible
Ricky"] whose childhood catchphrase was "I don't mess around, boy!" The Nelson’s
next door neighbor is "Thorny" Thornberry. When David and Ricky grew up and
moved out Ozzie and Harriet rented their rooms to two college girls, Brenda
Mackenzie and Susie Hamilton. Note: Ozzie Nelson's occupation was never revealed
on the show but in the 1951 movie, Here Come the Nelsons, he was an associate at
the H.J. Bellows Advertising Agency. On the show, however, there were flashbacks
that showed Ozzie leading an orchestra and his wife Harriet singing, so I chose
to give them musical professions (a TV fans prerogative). In real life, in the
1930s, Ozzie was a nationally known bandleader, and he married Harriet Hilliard,
who was the singer for the band. Note: The Nelson TV house seen on the series
(built on Stage 5 at General Service) is an exact replica of the front of their
real-life home in Hollywood California, a colonial style shingle house with
green shutters located at 1822 N. Camino Palmero Drive. The Nelson home address
on radio was 1847 Rogers Road. The show's sponsor, the International Silver
Company, made 1847 Rogers Silver.

NEURO-BRAIN (the computer)
(Robocop: The Series)
Neuro-Brain is a super computer that controlled all electrical functions in
Delta City. It was created by Dr. Cray Z. Mallardo who integrated a key
ingredient to the project: a living human brain. After killing Diana Powers, a
beautiful blond former secretary at Omni Consumer Products (OCP), he harvested
and then implanted her brain into Neuro-Brain's mainframe. Upon activating the
Neuro-Brian, its creator remarked "What we have here is a new form of
intelligence, a completely unique melding of human and machine. It's a miracle."
The Neuro-Brain was designed to "reduce all decisions to an unimpeachable binary
utopia." In the meantime the essence of Diane Powers lived in cyber-space and
traveled about as a holographic ghost in the machine through all the circuitry
in this futuristic metropolis, assisting whenever possible, police officer Alex
Murphy, aka "Robocop." See also - HEADROOM, Max and ROBOCOP
