Each episode the members of this space age police force pledged the following oath:

"We, as official Video Rangers, hereby promise to abide by the Ranger code and to support forever the cause of freedom, truth and justice throughout the universe."

Reciting the oath along with Captain Video and His Video Rangers were thousand of young TV viewers who religiously sent in for their official memberships and Captain Video Helmets ($1.00 plus Box Top), Captain Video rings (25 cents plus box top), and plastic ray gun (25 cents plus wrapper from Power House candy bar).

Sponsored by the POST cereal company, the program opened with the music from Wagner's "Flying Dutchman" over the sounds of a Morse code key pounding out this exciting message P-O-S-T...P-O-S-T...and then the announcer declaring:

"The cereals you like the most! The cereals made by POST...take you to the secret mountain retreat of. Captain Video! Master of Space! Hero of Science! Captain of the Video Rangers! Operating from his secret mountain headquarters on the planet Earth, Captain Video rallies men of good will and leads them against the forces of evil everywhere! As he rockets from planet to planet, let us follow the champion of justice, truth and freedom throughout the universe! Stand by for...CAPTAIN VIDEO AND HIS VIDEO RANGERS!"
