Each episode featured an "ending moral" segment where the viewer was told the life lesson that was to be learned from watching it. For the entire first season (15 episodes), Jackson Bostwick dressed as Captain Marvel delivered these messages. Michael Gray as Billy Batson gave them the second season (6 episodes) and in one episode of the third season along with baseball great Maury Wills. John Davey gave them in all other third season episodes. See more »

I just watched an old episode and it was light hearted entertainment with nice morals and a good message. Unlike that other reviewer who is either homophobic, has a complex, or was trying to be funny, I saw the relationship between Billy Batson and Mentor as an Obi Wan and Luke thing. He was being a mentor!!! Hence the name. I don't know why people like that have to bash anything that has 2 males in it, like Batman and Robin, etc. Two men can be friends. An older men can pass on his wisdom to the young without being gay. And if anything would endanger Billy in anyway, all he had to say was SHAZAM!!!! All you haters get a life and give this nice 1974 show a break.
