The Greatest American Hero

Created By:

Stephen J. Cannell


The show follows Ralph Hinkley, a high school teacher, and FBI Special Agent Bill Maxwell.  Shortly after they meet, they encounter aliens who instruct them to work together to save the world.  Ralph is given a red suit which gives him superhuman abilities. Unfortunately, Ralph immediately loses its instruction booklet, and thus has to learn how to use his powers by trial and error, often with comical results.
