Space: 1999 -- "Return to the Beginning"

In the 1970s, Power Records produced a series of comic book-and-audio drama packages, based on the likes of Star Trek, The Six Million Dollar Man, and various characters from Marvel and DC Comics.

They also produced two of these based on the series Space:1999 -- including "Breakaway" (adapted from the series pilot), and then the original (and somewhat surreal) "Return to the Beginning," wherein the crew of Moonbase Alpha find themselves on Earth in Bibical times, encountering Noah and witnessing the Genesis Flood as recorded in the Bible (Genesis 6-9).

These handy videos combine the audio drama and comics together -- complete with a brilliant (and hilarious) newly edited opening titles sequence:
