When I was seven years old, there was a TV show that, for some reason I loved. It involved a goofy superhero who was able to fly. He wore some sort of silvery flight jacket/apparatus; I remember this because I would turn my coat inside out to play like I was that guy. I couldn't even remember the name of the show or the superhero. I despaired of ever learning this piece of useless trivia.

Enter the Web, namely YouTube! Turns out that the show was called "Mr. Terrific." It played for just 17 episodes in 1967. Here's the theme song, which I even kind of remember:

There are even some clips on YouTube:

I could even view the unaired pilot for this show.

Sometimes, the Internet is just plain cool.
