He's the country's unique crime fighter. In reality he's a mild-mannered filling station attendant, but when law and order break down, he takes a magical pill which sends him flying after the gangsters. Starring Stephen Strimpell, Dick Gautier and John McGiver as Barton J. Reed. New comedy, in color.
The character of Mr Terrific is an amalgamation of DC Comic's golden age superheroes; the name "Mr Terrific" is from the DC's Mr Terrific (Terry Sloane), the costume is similar to DC's flying character "Black Condor", and the 1-hour super pills are similar to the Miraclo pills that "Hourman" took for limited strength and powers.

I can't believe someone else remembers this show! For twenty five years I've had a picture in my head of a portly guy in a suit talking across a desk to a skinny guy with a cape. They were in a high-rise building and the skinny guy flew out the window. I remembered he was some sort of secret agent. No one else remembered it and they thought I was thinking of Get Smart. I finally found it! I can now die in peace!
