This series aired in the United States first on Syndicated basis in 1956, but not on a regular basis and completely random as part of another show. Several episodes were edited together and shown as movies in the cinemas under the titles: Under The Black Flag and South Sea Pirates. After that it was sold to the ITV Network in the UK, and aired in 1957. In 1958 Australian ABC screened the series as part of Children's TV Club show.
This series is exceptional, since it was produced in Australia, before there even a TV network existed. Even more, the series was produced in full color - considering that even Hollywood produced a lot of movies in black and white till the end of the 1950's.
