The Greatest American Hero Video Game


William Katt is best known to legions of fans as Ralph Hinkley, the schoolteacher who received a suit with superpowers from aliens, only to lose its instructions. "The Greatest American Hero," which ran for three seasons on ABC from 1981 to 1983, is still alive today through syndication and DVD. Whenever I go anywhere, the kids in their mid-20s to adult 40 year-olds tell me they loved the 'Greatest American Hero,'" said Katt. "One thing I'll say about the fan base is that they are great people," said Katt. "They really appreciate what goes into making those type of genre things. I've been at the Chiller convention where I've gone for 'The Greatest American Hero' and everyone is dressed as the characters. It's a lot of fun." That type of dedication could result in a revival of the franchise. At a time when Hollywood is turning TV shows like "Miami Vice" and "Dallas" into movies, "The Greatest American Hero" is certainly a candidate. "Steve Cannell had been in talks with Disney for years about doing a movie," said Katt. "I read a very funny script by Paul Hernandez, who was one of the writers of Sky High. They were throwing around Owen Wilson's name a few years back. I don't know what ever became of it and why it never became a feature." Katt said it seems like a "Greatest American Hero" video game would be a natural if they were to do a movie. But Katt's not resting on his laurels when it comes to video games. The Hollywood actor, who's still busy with new film and TV projects, is developing his own original next generation video game. "I've been working on developing a third-person adventure game for the next generation systems for about a year," said Katt. "It's an epic re-telling of a story and a mythology. I've set it in today's world and I've been working with some people to develop that. I have a game developer working on it, but I don't want to go into it too deeply because it's so secretive." That was from a Yahoo Games Story. I was a big fan of the show growing up and I hope the current video game project works out for William Katt, because that might lead to an actual Greatest American Hero Game. Remember Connie Selleca was also in the show I fell for her big time, well I almost made it to the end of a post without mentioning a pretty lady.

We are older but never wiser with the disappearance of the characters, Ralph, Bill and Pam. We miss them. They need to re-appear!!!!!! Just a short 30 minute bloop!!!!!!!

Kids need that reassurance!!!

Did you know that my 5th grade class has had 6 reunions with me!. My fifth grade kids are 55. They appear smarter but want the insurance - life!
