Superhero comic-strip character of successful cartoonist Dick Hollister (Richard Benjamin) that was turned into a TV program of the same name on the sitcom HE & SHE/CBS/1967-70.


Chosen to play Jetman on this show-within-a-show was an arrogant, egotistical actor named Oscar North (Jack Cassidy). Oscar’s attempts at molding the character more to his own liking was a constant headache to Dick Hollister who supervised/wrote the weekly scripts.


Born in Philadelphia, Jerome Alphonse Holst worked 30 years as a librarian. He has since retired and lives in Greensboro, North Carolina. Mr. Holst is also the author of the children’s books “Norman the Troll,” "Norman the Troll and the Haunted House," and "Gretchen and the Gremlins." In addition, he penned the fantasy novel “The Adventures of Glinda Gale,” a retelling of “The Wizard of Oz" and the reference text “The Encyclopedia of Movie and TV Insults.” .
