The Purple Avenger

Many folks recall Captain Nice and Mr. Terrific but here, also from '66, we see The Purple Avenger. as played by Dom Deluise on an episode of PLEASE DON'T EAT THE DAISIES.


  1. I very vaguely remember seeing some sitcom in the mid-1960's where the kids were watching a goofy superhero show on TV. This was probably it.

    I remember watching Mr. Terrific, and seeing ads for Captain Nice. Both were spoofs of the 1966 Batman/superhero fad. Of course, the fad passed, and parodies of it became irrelevant.

  2. Precursor to Captain Chaos. Dun Dun DUNNNNNNNNN!
