I loved this series
23 November 2005 | by donstachowiakSee all my reviews

Like the previous commentator, I vividly remember Captain Midnight's mountaintop base, and his scientist assistant "Tut", as well as the great Sid Melton as his mechanic, Ikky (for Ichabod)Mudd "with two Ds". I never understood the reason for the name change to Jet Jackson before I read the trivia note above. It says the Jet Jackson name was used in Australia, but I know it was also used here in the US as well, so I'm still a bit puzzled. Anyway, I am glad of the opportunity to reminisce about one of my favorite childhood TV shows. I believe Sid Melton is still alive, and was still working as of 1999. Some may remember him as "Alf Monroe" on Green Acres.
