Carter Nash was a chemist in a police department who discovered a liquid which could turn him into Captain Nice, an odd sort of superhero: very shy and dominated by his mother. Captain Nice flew (he feared heights) in his tattered leotards, fighting badguys because his mother told him to do so. Written by

The origin of the name "Captain Nice"...When Carter Nash is first discovered as a "superhero", he wears a ring with his initials, "CN". A passer-by asks him what the "CN" stands for and, not wanting to give his real name, he comes up with, "Captain . . . Nice?" See more »
I was 26 when "Captain Nice" appeared, lasting only half a season. My husband and I loved it. It was funny and sweet.
In 1967, Williams Daniels, who played/was Captain Nice, had a very busy year as he was also in "The Graduate" (as Dustin Hoffman's father), "Two for the Road", and "The President's Analyst". The last one holds up very well even today and is available on VHS. It is still funny, true, and also reflects the swingin' sixties.
Alice Ghostley was also in "The Graduate". She is one of the great character actors and always a joy to see in any film.
My husband and I may have been a jinx to TV quality because it seemed everything we liked lasted a very short time. Well, we are now divorced so maybe the spell is broken.
