Description by OLDIES.com:

With a colorful cast of characters that includes the slippery proprietor of Air Cathay, Chopstick Joe, blonde bombshell Burma, and the beautiful arch-villainess known as the Dragon Lady, Terry and his trusted sidekick, Hotshot Charlie, fight villainy at every hair-pin turn!

This exciting TV series, based on the popular "Terry and the Pirates" comic strip and radio series, aired in 1952-1953. Brainchild of artist Milton Caniff, Terry made his newspaper debut in 1934, and his war-time adventures thrilled avid homefront readers. In 1946, After the war, Caniff left the strip to create the equally popular "Steve Canyon" series. The "Terry and the Pirates" franchise was passed to a new generation of artists and writers who continued to thrill readers until Terry's final adventure was published in 1973.
