THE LAST SATURDAY OF JULY 2001 AT 3:05 AM, the very first CINEMA INSOMNIA episode with host and TV veteran Mr. Lobo aired on ABC TV in NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. Today, we know MR. LOBO and his AKA “Alan N. Smithee” as a multimedia mogul and director who founded OUTER SPACE INTERNATIONAL and  the streaming channel OSI 74. You can see a restored version of their BUCKET OF BLOOD Episode, re-edited by AARON LANE, from 2003 on ROKU right now, right here or on OSI74.com!

A Bold restoration effort is underway! Many first season CINEMA INSOMNIA episodes are being transferred from tape to digital for broadcast on the channel in the coming days and weeks. Today, MR. LOBO is shooting a 15 Year Anniversary Special with MISS MITTENS and the first ever crossover with his OSI Director persona to introduce this rare material. SO–Double your pleasure and your vision!

Above is the 4th complete episode of the show from VHS taped off the air in 2001. This is the first appearance of MISS MITTENS!

In the canon of the show, MR. LOBO’s first hosting gig was on a supposedly on a series called INSOMNIAC THEATER an ancestor to CINEMA INSOMNIA. DON’T BE CONFUSED…The first 24 episodes of CINEMA INSOMNIA have never been on DVD or ROKU and very few of them have been in syndication.

And here is another INSOMNIAC THEATER episode of questionable authenticity…as MR. LOBO doesn’t actually remember doing any of this. Please stay tuned for updates!

  1. We at Interceptor say thanks to Mr. Lobo for lending his voice to our cartoon. If anyone would like to see an episode 2 get made or to be a part of it contact me at the vimeo link for more information. TB
