Description

This is the original pilot for The Greatest American Hero television series that debuted on ABC on March 18, 1981. The pilot scored in the ratings. ABC had already ordered the series as a mid-season replacement before the movie had aired.

Quirky fun.

Litiguious Footnote: DC Comics filed a lawsuit trying to stop the pilot from airing. A judge ruled in the show’s favor and the pilot aired. Even during the show's 2nd season DC was still trying to end the series, saying it infringed on the Superman copyright. The lawsuit over the series caused many potential licensees to back away from the show so few licensed items were made for the series.
