Syndication Title:
The network version of the series on CBS was sponsored by "Ovaltine",
which had also sponsored the radio show. Because "Ovaltine" owned the
rights to the name "Captain Midnight", when the reruns of the series
went into syndication (without "Ovaltine's sponsorship) they were seen
under the title "Jet Jackson, Flying Commando"; all references to
"Captain Midnight" crudely overdubbed with the words "Jet Jackson".

Richard Webb later returned to television starring in the series
'U.S. Border Patrol' as Deputy Chief Don Jagger (1959) 39 episodes.

e-mail from William Frieburger <winterbourneblue2002@yahoo.com> Dec 2002
I saw this episode in December of 1954 (episode 15) at a time when my
family was undergoing some turmoil and it frightened the daylights out
of me. It featured a man who accidentally became electrified and
wandered through the streets; anyone whom he touched would become
electrocuted. It particularly scared me when a police chief in the
episode went on radio and television to warn residents to keep their
doors and windows locked so he could not get into their homes. I could
not sleep for months, in terror of what I called "the Electric Man."
I'm pretty sure that this episode tied in with some stressful events in
my real life at the time; I was 4 years old and still vividly remember
it, even though I have not seen it since 1954.
Seeing it again would be a big help in understanding some traumatic
things that happened to me when I was young.

email from Trevor Scott in Australia:
"I remember running home from school to watch Jet Jackson (here in Australia).
We used to make paper planes and write Silver Dart on the side. Over the
last few years I have managed to track down most of the episodes on video
(actually 29 and still looking) and I still love the show - I actually
remember some of the eps (The Lost Moon for instance). Things were so much
simpler then - Jet (and everything else especially the political situation)
was in black & white - there's even an episode when Jet takes a frightened
boy into his bedroom to sleep for the night (only in the 50's ...).
My great wish - all episodes of Captain Midnight / Jet Jackson in good
condition on DVD - I'm sure that it will happen one day"
