Captain Mack is a British children's television show set in the town of Sunshine City. It was created and developed by John Lomas Bullivant, at Fireback Entertainment, and was first broadcast in February 2008. The series currently runs on CITV's pre school slot, Mini CITV and Tiny Pop.
In Australia, it is shown on ABC2, in particular on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 8.40am. It also runs in New Zealand on TVNZ 7. It also aired on Cartoonito in 2013, earlier than before.
Captain Mack is based in Sky Rocket Control, with his trusty monkey engineer Samson. They keep an eye on the residents of Sunshine City, particularly the naughty ones (Marty Meddler, Tracy Trickster, and Grabby Crabby). Sunshine City is bright, colourful clean and cheerful inhabited by some of the nicest people you could ever meet.
These include Yolanda Yummy (cook), Peter Patent (inventor), Fineas Fixit (odd job man), Dr Quack (GP), Daisy Digger (gardener), Wendy Whizz (keep fit fanatic), Camilla Divine (artist), Maximus Volume (singer) and Rosie Raucous (saleswoman).
Captain Mack always leaves with the phase "Shucks, I have to go. My monkey needs me." When there is trouble in Sunshine City, Captain Mack uses the phrase, "Sky Rockets to the rescue!"
