Midnight in Greymoor Castle!

Season: 1
Episode Number: 4a
Season Episode Number: 4a
Production Number:


Voices: Arthur Pierce (Captain America), Bernard Cowan (Bucky Barnes, Narrator), (Sergeant Duffy), (Dr. Cedric Rawlings), (Celia Rawlings), (Saboteur), (Servant), (Nazi Officer).

Plot: Bucky is kidnapped and taken to Greymoor Castle where he will be experimented on by the evil Dr. Rawlings.

Review (Warning! Spoilers!): This Captain America tale, found in Tales of Suspense #69, takes us back to WWII, another clue that the episode order that I am following is not correct. Last episode, Cap was in the present reminiscing about his dead partner, Bucky Barnes, and now here he is, alive and well!

This is not a real problem. Just be aware that if you are watching these episodes, I think this one should be episode three.

Other than that, we have a fun Captain America adventure with some great art from Jack Kirby. My favourite scene is the dismembered arm (pictured to the left) 'bopping' Bucky on the head! Somehow, I don't think that is exactly what Kirby had in mind when he drew that panel.
