This series and a remarkably similar one on NBC called Captain Nice (1967) both debuted the same evening, 9 January 1967. Both shows aired their last episode on 28 August 1968 . Neither was a big enough hit to justify being renewed for a second season. See more »
I remember this growing up in Australia. I was 6 years old. I loved watching this and have never forgotten the show. I have only re-visited the show, using the web just recently and had to make a comment in here, seeing as there wasn't any.
Dick Gautier was brilliant I remember him walking around acting like a turkey and uttering "Gobble gobble.. gobble"
The greatest American Hero was probably inspired by Mr Terrific, same kind of scenario of a Superman that was a clown. As someone said , "everything Clark Kent tried to be"
Directed by the one and only Jack Arnold his fame includes, Gilligans Island, Rawhide, Peter Gunn, Perry Mason, Love boat so much more..
I have been looking for recordings of this series.
