- Series Description
In these humorous and affectionate television poems, humorist Jean Shepherd celebrates America in all its richness and diversity -- from cars to candy, baseball to beer, motels to money. Each week a different aspect of our national psyche is explored as Shepherd travels to the Okefenokee Swamp, Death Valley, Milwaukee, the Old South, and other far-flung locations -- using the PCP-90 portable camera.

- Program Description
The future of America may be up in the air. And crack aviator Jean Shepherd is just the man to tell us all about it. The Shepherd’s-eye view of flying starts off with a quick lesson from some real experts in the field-- kites and birds. Then it’s off to the annual Convention of Home-made Aircraft. Jean is a licensed pilot himself, but before he concludes this show with a spin in his own yankee trainer, he warms us up with a great flying story from out of the past.
