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. 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.
