Sinbad Jr. starred, of course, the son of Sinbad, famous sailing hero of the Seven Seas. Like his dad, Sinbad Jr. also sailed the oceans, but this intrepid seafarer followed his own star.

Sinbad Jr. looked more like an All-American kid than a brave sea adventurer, but once he tightened up his magic belt (making his waist smaller and the chest bigger), he gained the strength of fifty men and the ability to fly. As an added bonus to the boy's self-esteem, these powers expanded his chest to three times its regular size.

Every sailor needs a parrot sidekick, and Sinbad Jr. was no exception. Sinbad had Salty, a smart-alecky bird who wore a sailor's cap. The two encountered many adventures together, often thwarting the younger Sinbad's nemesis, Rotcoddam (read it backwards), and his henchman Egoots (you get the idea).

Sinbad Jr. ran half an hour, but every episode was culled from a pool of 100 five-minutes shorts. The junior sailor was a hit in syndication, making the old man proud.

There was an eariler version of "Sinbad, Jr." tv cartoons that created and produced by Sam Singer Animations Studios Inc. and released in national syndication by American/International TV Inc. "Uncle Johnny" Coons used his "Stooge Villa" voice for the voice of the character of "Mr. Hurley the Mobster". The voices for "Sinbad, Jr." and "Salty the talking parrot" in the American International/ Sam Singer version of the series were performed by unknown actors.

"The Sinbad, Jr." TV Cartoons (The Sam Singer and Hanna Barbera / American International series) were first seen on The WNEW TV Ch. 5 NYC version of "The Chuck McCann Show".
