"Belive it or not, I'm walking on air, I never thought I could feel so free!"

From one of my favorite shows from the '80's. For those who do not know, here is some info (from wikipedia):

The Greatest American Hero is an American science fiction TV series that aired for three seasons from 1981 to 1983 on ABC. It premiered as a two-hour movie pilot on March 18, 1981. It starred William Katt as teacher Ralph Hinkley ("Hanley" for the latter part of the first season), Robert Culp as FBI Agent Bill Maxwell, and Connie Sellecca as lawyer Pam Davidson. The show chronicles Ralph's adventures after he is given a red suit by a group of aliens, which gives him superhuman abilities.

The aliens give Ralph Hinkley an instruction booklet on how to use the suit, but Ralph, who hates wearing the suit anyway, loses the instruction booklet and has to learn how to use his super powers by trial and error, often with comical results.

Enjoy!

WIN !! :) Too bad this is the closest hair piece to the original character. I still have the corny theme song stuck in my head. Some interesting info: The actor that portrays The Greatest American Hero also read for the part of Luke Skywalker that eventually went to Mark Hamill. Thanks for making me feel 7 again ;9

Man, oh MAN! It's been YEARS since I've seen (or really even thought about) that show! Funny thing is, it was my favorite show back when I was in elementary school, and you did a great job of bringing the dude into minifig scale, Shmails.
