1: The Joyriders
A young man must figure out what to do when his friends insist on stealing cars and going on joy rides. Moral: It's important to do what you know is right, and not get conned into doing something dumb just because somebody calls you names.

2: The Brothers
Chad is a blind boy who is being overly-protected by his older brother, Danny. Chad feels so useless that he decides to run away, and when his brother goes after him, Danny gets bit by a rattlesnake. Chad gains self-confidence after he is able to make it back to Billy and Mentor for help and lead them back to Danny. Moral: Everyone needs a helping hand. People with problems or handicaps can get along almost as well as any of us. All they need is a chance to gain self-confidence.

4: The Lure of the Lost
A woman is concerned about her brother, Gary, when he seems to have fallen in with the wrong crowd — a drug dealer named Brock.

Continuing from where the previous episode left off, Gary and Mark are on their way to the D.A.'s office when Brock, the drug dealer, car-jacks the police car. Mark pretends to be on the good side, so that he can keep Brock informed as to what's going on. Moral: It's important to be responsible for what we say and what we do. It's easy to get dragged into doing what is wrong, but it's even harder to get out again.

6: The Athlete
Kellie has her mind set on being a part of the all-boys Varsity Team. But there are two boys who will do anything in order to get her off the team... perhaps even by planting test answers in her locker. Moral: Everyone should be given a chance to prove his or her abilities. Don't put someone down just because they're different from you. Don't put a girl down just because she's a girl. When a person's talents are wasted, it's a loss to all of us.

7: The Treasure
Two men have been digging up Indian artifacts in the desert and selling them. An Indian chief and his grandson, Johnny, try to get them to stop, but are unsuccessful.

Billy and Mentor know that Larry knows who the robber was, and when Ron is seen looking for Larry, it becomes obvious that Ron is the guilty person. Knowing he's been found out, Ron forces Larry's father to take him out of town on his helicopter. Moral: Some day you may see somebody do something wrong. If you don't know what to do about it, just remember that when a problem has you stumped, it's a good idea to talk with a grown-up you can trust. It could save you a lot of trouble in the long run!

9: The Doom Buggy
Don has dropped out of school to be a mechanic. But when he and Billy get lost in the desert, he sees that he doesn't know as much as he thought he did. Moral: If you close your mind to learning, sooner or later you're going to have it opened and be surprised at just how much you've shortchanged yourself. So if you ever think about dropping out of school, you're only hurting yourself.
Saturday, November 9th, 1974
10: The Brain
Jim "The Brain" Carter is a new kid in town and is having a tough time finding friends. He's been playing tricks on them in order to get them to like him. They also are put off by his incessant book-reading. Billy and Mentor suggest that Jim try to do things that the rest of the guys are interested in. Tough guy Greg decides to make Jimmy try something dangerous in order to prove that he's good enough to hang around them. When Greg is in danger, Jim uses Morse Code (learned from books!) to call for help. Moral: We all want to be liked, but scary, daredevil stunts aren't the way to go about it. If a person can't like you for who you are, then maybe they aren't worth having as friends.
Saturday, November 16th, 1974
11: Little Boy Lost
Howard is a boy who hasn't spoken since his friend was almost killed. His father won't let him have a puppy, so he runs away.

Howard is able to go find Billy and Mentor, and when his dad is saved, Howard is suddenly able to speak. Moral: If you don't communicate, you'll never solve your problems, and the most important communication for all of us, is with the ones we love. Remember, there are times when everyone needs help, even you.

Saturday, December 14th, 1974
15: The Gang's All Here
Vinnie is out on bail and ready to get even with that rat-fink Jackie. Billy tries to talk to Vinnie, but ends up being bound and gagged. Vinnie and Jackie's confrontation at the oil refinery almost takes one of their lives. Moral: In the end, fighting doesn't prove anything. It makes more sense to work together, and iron out our differences in a constructive, rather than a destructive way.

1: On Winning
Corky feels that he's no match for his big brother, whether it be motorcycling, fishing... you name it. He also feels that his dad doesn't care for him as much as his older brother. But when Corky runs away and his dad is almost killed trying to find him, Corky realizes how much his dad loves him. Moral: Winning isn't the important thing. What is important, is to do the very best you can. And a parent's love is a very special kind of love, its so big, that no matter how many brothers or sisters you have, there's more than enough love for everyone.
Saturday, September 13th, 1975
Debbie's parents have warned her not to ride with Tom on his motorcycle, because he is reckless. It's Billy's job to help Debbie to realize that when her parents don't let her do certain things, it's because they love her. Debbie realizes this when Tom and his buddy swipe a six-pack of beer from a gas station, and almost get mangled by a large truck. Moral: When a parent sets rules and regulations, it really is a form of expression of their love and concern. Sometimes the hardest thing for them to say is "no." But we can be sure that if they say "no", that most of the time there's a good reason for it. Note: This is the first televised episode with John Davey as Captain Marvel.
Saturday, September 20th, 1975

Moral: There are some things even more precious than gold, things like respect and understanding. Respect means more than being polite. It means knowing we've learned from each other. There's a lot we can learn, if we only listen. Note: This is the last episode with Jackson Bostwick.
Saturday, September 27th, 1975
4: Double Trouble
Captain Marvel robs a gas station! Or is it an imposter in an incredibly realistic mask? Now there's a warrant for Captain Marvel's arrest, and so the real Captain Marvel turns himself in. With Marvel in jail, the crooks decide to rob the Iverson Mine's payroll. Meanwhile, Mentor finds the crooks' mask, costume and cape, which proves Marvel's innocence. Moral: Respecting the law is just another way of saying that we respect each other. Laws have been made for the good of everyone, and when someone breaks the law, they're saying "I don't care about you." When you respect the law, you respect yourself. Note: From this point on, John Davey is Captain Marvel.
Saturday, October 4th, 1975

Trouble ensues when they hide in a conveniently placed hot-air balloon. Moral: Having a pet carries responsibilities. Some animals are born to be free. To deprive them of that right is selfish, so we all must understand and respect the laws of nature... for our sake, as well as for our animal friends.

Yale is a teenage boy who wants to join a club called "The Overlanders." The leader of the club does not want Yale to join because he's Jewish, but soon the racist gets what he deserves when a mountain lion attacks him.
