The show was canceled due to complaints that the it was actually a series of 30 minute commercials for Mattel's line of Skyhawk toys. Interestingly, the complaints came from Topper Toys, a rival of Mattel. See more »
The opening line of the theme song. It was a kid's cartoon but it had a message. One week it was pollution. The Wilsons
discovered a rival outfit hauling contaminated fish to market. When the pilots were confronted, they gave a lame excuse. "We didn't
know the fish was covered with oil." Really? Pappy Wilson, the family patriarch, was a World War I ace. His son, Mike, was the
head of Wilson Aviation. Mike's daughter was Caroline. There were two orphans who were the Wilsons' wards. They were Bobby and Cindy. At the end of the show, there were shorts. The shorts gave information about how to fly. As the other reviewer said, it's ironic that it was in a kid's cartoon. I loved this cartoon when I was little. I wonder if it's on video?
