Jackson Bostwick was fired from "Shazam!" two episodes into Season 2 and replaced with John Davey. Bostwick had sustained an injury during filming, went for medical treatment, and was advised to stay home a few days to recuperate. However, producers mistakenly accused him of holding out for a higher salary. Bostwick successfully sued Filmation, which was forced to pay his full salary for the entire series, including all its reruns on CBS. See more »

What can I say. In South America the spanish version for this TV show was on the air till 1977 and it was great for me. I'll never forget the ending morals what show me about the good and bad things of life. I am not a fan of Captain Marvel but I think that Billy Batson and Mentor show me little pieces of the person that I am today. I must thank for that. Of course if I could see it again I'd be laughing about how Captain Marvel use to fly... but I couldn't ask for more on that time.
