The story is set in the present day (1960) at Black Rock Laboratory, Nevada, where Professor Popkiss has invented his brainchild, Supercar. A flying machine which can journey into space and travel underwater.
Accompanying them is the handsome hero and pilot, Mike Mercury, with the bumbling Dr. Beaker and the child hero Jimmy and his pet monkey, Mitch.
Always plotting to steal Supercar is the grossly overweight Masterspy and his henchman, Zarin, but they always fail.
Even if it is a black-and-white show, it still has a certain ambience, and is quite an achievement for Anderson.
