Jack's companions, Billy and Betty Fairfield were often in need of rescue by the brave and daring All American Boy, Jack. Their Uncle Jim (Captain Fairfield) was a pilot of the Silver Albatross and led the adventurous group to locations around the world. Uncle Jim added a mature and fatherly component to the show guiding and instructing the Jack and his friends.
Though some episodes were so far-fetched to the point of being ridiculous, this is one of the most entertaining juvenile shows ever made. As crazy as some of the plots seem, the shows producers worked with anthropology professors to better understanding the local customs. In particular, a professor in Manila informed the show's writers of Philippine culture so there is some authenticity in Jack Armstrong's adventures.
From Morocco, to Zanzibar, to Easter Island, to China and the Philippines and from Nazi Germany, to the Ayndes, to Tibet, to becoming an ally of Blackbeard, Jack Armstrong, The All American Boy has seen it all.
