The Greatest American Hero Synopsis

A special-ed teacher, an FBI agent, and a UFO? That's right, you've guessed it -- The Greatest American Hero. This show was first aired in 1981, and was both a comedy and a drama. A special "power suit" that only works on him is given to the teacher by the aliens, and he is paired up with the gumshoe FBI agent who keeps them both busy with his scenarios. The suit of "unearthly powers" gives the power of strength, flight, invisibilty, flames, telekenesis, vision of events without being there, protection from bullets and fire (if he remembers to cover his head!), and some others that he must figure out as well because; HE LOST THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT CAME WITH THE SUIT! Intro Theme:

Look at what's happened to me

I can't believe it myself

Suddenly I'm up on top of the world

It should have been somebody else Believe it or not I'm walking on air

I never thought I could feel so free

Flying away on a wing and a prayer

Who could it be?

Believe it or not it's just me
