Television's Greatest - local & national TV kid shows

Whirlybirds
by Billy Ingram

Whirlybirds is one of those TV shows I remember fondly - even though I only got to see it once a year as a kid. Our local station didn't carry the syndicated adventure program but a station at the beach where we vacationed as a family did.

Whirlybirds tv showWhirlybirds aired from 1957 well into the 1960s, a was a syndicated show with a huge juvenile audience. 111 episodes were filmed between 1956 and 1959 but reruns continued to be popular for many years afterward; I saw it in the mid-1960s.

The adventures centered around Chuck Martin (Tobey) and Pete (P.T.) Moore (Hill), owners of 'Whirlybirds, Inc', and their faithful secretary Janet Culver (Sandra Spence).

Actually, Janet left after the first season and was replaced by Helen Carter (Nancy Hale) so I guess she wasn't so faithful after all.

Often the boys would be called in to help the police locate an escaped prisoner, or save some stranded fool out in the middle of nowhere. This would inevitably lead to one of the guys dangling at the end of a rope at some point in the episode - when they didn't just outright jump out of the helicopter. Don't try this at home!


"The National Helicopter Service provided all the helicopters and expertise in all but the first 4 episodes of the show. You can visit our website at www.nationalhelicopter.com for a few photos. We will soon have many more photos from the show on-line."

Regards, R Hart
