Captain Midnight was a daring, jut-jawed war hero who led a mysterious government group known as the Secret Squadron. Midnight, his comic sidekick Icky, and the rest of the Squadron traveled around the globe stomping out evil. When the show went into syndication, Midnight's name became Jet Jackson, and the show's title was changed. Written by

Captain Midnight's plane was the Douglas "Skyrocket," a dual-powered experimental aircraft having both a jet engine and a four-barrel rocket engine. See more »

Sure. It's like this: They fire off the rocket - BANG! - It flies through the air - WHOOSH! - It hits the water - SPLASH! - It sinks to the bottom - BUBBLE, BUBBLE, BUBBLE! - Along comes a great, big whale - GOBBLE, GOBBLE, GOBBLE! See?

I would rush home from school to watch Jet Jackson. I loved it. He always had the best fist fights (actually his stunt double looked like a real boxer) - Icky was also a treat in these fights as well ! Now I'm trying to collect videos of the series (can anyone help out there ??). Watching the episodes now seems almost as satisfying as 40 years ago - it takes me back to more simpler times when : landing a jet plane on a flat stretch of beach was easy, anything scientific was fabulous and atomic power was the next big thing. There was even an episode where Jet takes a traumatised young boy into his bedroom for the night. The Captain Midnight episodes are a real eye-opener from the point of view of the pervasive use of advertising (Ovaltine). "Be the first in your gang to have a Secret Squadron Emblem" (courtesy of a jar of Ovaltine). I can't get enough of Jet Jackson
