Captain Marvel was played by Jackson Bostwick (Season 1 and just two episodes of Season 2) and by JOHN Davey (Season 3) for a grand total of 28 episodes. The characters of Billy Batson (Michael Gray) and Mentor (Les Tremayne) traveled around in an Open Road motor home, commonly misrepresented as a Winnebago. Filmation acquired the rights to the Shazam title from DC comics, and is the first time that the characters of Billy Batson and Captain Marvel have been seen on television. The story format had to depart from the comics as the comics did not translate well for television. Filmation declined to use other characters from the Shazam mythos since it would have required the payment of more licensing fees.
The definitive documentary on Chick tracts
This documentary beat others to the punch as it is the first one ever to address those little religious booklets everyone has seen at one point or another. Chick's tracts have an entry in the Smithsonian Institute and have been spotted in a Stephen King film. It is the first and definitive documentary on Jack T. Chick and his religious tracts.
The documentary explores the controversial worldview and work of Jack T. Chick and his little comic books, including unknown interesting trivia. Chick is a self-published author whose work has passed the 3/4 of a billion mark, making him the most published independent author and artist alive, even surpassing J.K. Rowling and Stephen King combined. It's odd that no mainstream news program has given Chick his due, no matter how controversial and distasteful people find him.
This is one of the best reunion specials ever, with Adam West and Burt Ward parodying themselves and having fun while doing it. It's amazing the amount of effort that went into the detail, particularly recapturing the feel of the 1960's era, the Batcave set, Wayne Manor, the costumes, and the actors selected to play the younger versions of West, Ward, Burgess Meredith, Cesar Romero, and Frank Gorshin! This 90 minutes is well worth your time, and is a delight to all fans of the classic 1960's "Batman" television series. I note that clips from "Batman" were from the movie, and not the series itself, probably because of legal restrictions. Let's hope the three seasons of the show are forthcoming on DVD.
