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 also remember this sitcom fondly. I remember the balding man who was the superhero's mentor. That was the man who invented the pill. Mr. Terrific pops a pill, then his face turns one color after another, then he gets super powers. I've always thought the pill was the reason this show got axed. It was a good show! But with all the pill-popping going on during the psychedelic sixties, I would imagine the network caught some blowback.
