Storyline

Carter Nash was a chemist in a police department who discovered a liquid which could turn him into Captain Nice, an odd sort of superhero: very shy and dominated by his mother. Captain Nice flew (he feared heights) in his tattered leotards, fighting badguys because his mother told him to do so. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@cc.wwu.edu>

Trivia

The whole Clark Kent/Lois Lane/Superman dynamic is altered in this series. In the Superman stories, Lois Lane is generally in love with Supeman, and is most often uninterested in the nerdy Clark Kent. However, Sgt. Candy Cane is in love with Carter Nash, the nerdy chemist, and is pointedly uninterested in the powerful superhero: Captain Nice. See more »

Quotes

Carter's Mother: That's dandy; other mothers have sons that invent steamboats and telephones and things. Mine invents a lettuce machine.

Great Fun!
10 April 2001 | by liageSee all my reviews

I was in 8th grade and watched this show and two others ("Run, Buddy, Run" -- starring Jack Sheldon-- and "Mr. Terrific" -- with Stephen Strimpell) religiously. No one of these shows lasted more than a season and I was very disappointed at such short runs for these three shows. Because they were all so short-lived, I suspect we will never get the opportunity to see them in syndication. But I keep hoping. They were all hilarious. My favorite moment in "Captain Nice" occurs in the episode where Carter Nash (a.k.a. Captain Nice -- i.e. William Daniels) and his girlfriend, Sergeant Candy Kane (i.e. Ann Prentiss) are charged with guarding Bob Newhart, who is playing a very conceited nightclub owner. Sergeant Kane knocks Bob Newhart to the floor, out of the way of a falling light fixture and saves his life; immediately thereafter she asks him, "Are you all right?" He responds, in great Bob Newhart deadpan, "All right? I'm darn near perfect!" I couldn't stop laughing. I still can't.
