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 »
This show was created to compete with Batman on TV, and I find it much more worthy of repeat viewings over Batman any day. That comment may be sacrilege to some, but Batman ruined comic book creations to film and TV for decades to follow, making a dark hero campy and stupid. Captain Nice was campy in a way, but not to the extremes of Batman. It was funny, and a great precursor to the Tick live action series.
If you are a fan of comic book hero comedies like the Tick or Chicken Man, then this series is worth checking out. It airs rarely now (the last time I knew it aired was during the early days of Comedy Central). Here's hoping the series is released on DVD.
