Cool McCool

Cool McCool was an animated series that ran on NBC from September 10, 1966 to August 30, 1969 with three segments per show, running to 60 segments in all (20 full episodes in total). It was created by Bob Kane – most famous as the one of the creators of Batman – and produced by Al Brodax for King Features.

Cool McCool featured the adventures of a hip, trenchcoated spy, who defeated villains despite being comically inept. Villains included the Rattler, Hurricane Harry, Greta Ghoul, the Owl, Jack-In-The-Box and Dr. Madcap. McCool’s boss was known as Number One, although his face was never seen onscreen; only his arms and a cigar were visible behind his chair (a reference to contemporary spy show – The Prisoner, which featured a spy looking for Number One who ran the prison he found himself in). Number One’s secretary was Friday, a dumpy girl who had an unrequited crush on the secret agent.

 

McCool had three catchphrases:

“Danger is my business!”

“When you’re right, Number One, you’re right,”

(After messing something up) “That will never happen again.”

The show also featured a Keystone Kops-style segment featuring the adventures of McCool’s father, Harry McCool, a uniformed police officer, presumed to have taken place decades before Cool’s time. Harry was supported by his brothers Dick and Tom. Only 20 Harry McCool episodes were made, each one sandwiched between the two Cool McCool episodes per show.
