The Greatest American Hero Opening and Closing Theme 1981 - 1983













The Greatest American Hero is an American comedy-drama television series that aired for three seasons from 1981 to 1983 on ABC. Created by producer Stephen J. Cannell, it premiered as a two-hour pilot movie on March 18, 1981.

The series features 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 series chronicles Ralph's adventures after a group of aliens gives him a red suit that grants him superhuman abilities. Unfortunately for Ralph, who hates wearing the suit, he immediately loses its instruction booklet, and thus has to learn how to use its powers by trial and error, often with comical results. 

Ralph Hinkley is a Los Angeles public school teacher of special education high school students. Aliens give him a suit which endows him with superhuman abilities and tell him to collaborate with FBI Special Agent Bill Maxwell (Culp). Attorney Pam Davidson (Selleca), who handled Ralph's divorce, sometimes joins Ralph and Bill on their adventures.
