Riding the tide of the camp superhero craze of the 1960s, the show’s premise involved police chemist Carter Nash (William Daniels), a mild-mannered mama’s boy who discovered a secret formula that, when taken, transformed him in an explosive burst of smoke into Captain Nice.
Captain Nice didn’t behave much differently from Carter. In fact, the Captain ran around in a white, red, and blue pajama-like costume, complete with cape, lovingly sewn by his domineering mother who had basically bullied him into his crime-fighting career. Carter selected the name Captain Nice since he already had items monogrammed “CN.” His superpowers included superhuman strength, invulnerability and the ability to fly, but he was nervous about doing the latter as he was afraid of heights, and his natural clumsiness was increased exponentially whenever he drank his super serum. Carter had a would-be girlfriend in the police department, meter maid Sgt. Candy Kane, although he seemed mostly oblivious to her obvious attentions. The series was created by Buck Henry, who was a co-creator of the hit series Get Smart. The show's premise is similar to that of CBS's Mister Terrific, which preceded Captain Nice on Monday nights. This series has a quality rating of 8 to 8.5.
