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 »
Crook #1:The first guard comes out in five minutes to make an outside check. You smash him over the head with this pipe. I'll take care of the dynamite. When the second guard comes out at midnight, you jump him and knock him out. If anyone else gets in your way, use your guns or your knives. But remember one thing.
Crook #2:What's that?
Crook #1:No violence!

My first exposure to the great William Daniels, 10 August 2004
Author: John Wayne Peel ( from United States

I was about 16 when the show premiered and already a fan of comic book superheroes and comedy, so I HAD to watch this show. And I LOVED it. A shame it only ran one season.

What I also remember that in the promotion of the show, there was this great comic book art poster drawn by the legendary Jack Kirby of Marvel Comics fame but I only saw it on TV. I would love to own a copy of it if it exists anywhere.

One of the things I remember was a running gag used by the writers. The Commissioner (played by Liam Dunn, a thin balding older man, famous for being a comic foil in many Mel Brooks films) would say something like, "Don't tell me the bank was robbed again" to which the chief would echo the words, "The bank was robbed again." Then Dunn would say with great exasperation. "I asked you not to tell me that." It still makes me laugh today. Even fellow schoolmates would echo this gag.

With great comic talent like Alice Ghostly and Liam Dunn as backup, and on the heels of the ultra campy Batman series (which I hated at the time for making a mockery of a great comic book hero) it should have been a huge hit.

The public! Go figure.
