A (highly shortened) version of the classic British comedy of the same name about a poor and undeveloped country which declares a war on the US, with the hope of losing - but things go wrong almost from the start.

He's the country's unique crime fighter. In reality he's a mild-mannered filling station attendant, but when law and order break down, he takes a magical pill which sends him flying after the gangsters. Starring Stephen Strimpell, Dick Gautier and John McGiver as Barton J. Reed. New comedy, in color.
I remember this growing up in Australia. I was 6 years old. I loved watching this and have never forgotten the show. I have only re-visited the show, using the web just recently and had to make a comment in here, seeing as there wasn't any.
Dick Gautier was brilliant I remember him walking around acting like a turkey and uttering "Gobble gobble.. gobble"
The greatest American Hero was probably inspired by Mr Terrific, same kind of scenario of a Superman that was a clown. As someone said , "everything Clark Kent tried to be"
Directed by the one and only Jack Arnold his fame includes, Gilligans Island, Rawhide, Peter Gunn, Perry Mason, Love boat so much more..
I have been looking for recordings of this series.
