i think it was called "Captain (i forgot)"......

it was a series, that spawned lotsa toys and some video games...

i used to have one of the games where you just put in a video tape, and you have the fighter-space plane thing in your hand, and you would dodge and shoot stuff on the TV and the plane would react....

arg i loved the series when i was very very little....i just can't remember the title....captain something.....

EDIT: captain power! THANKS ATOT!

All I can think of is "The Greatest American Hero"
I don't remember any videogames or spinoffs based on this, though...unless I am just never saw them. On a sidenote, that was a great show...I used to watch that show every week with my Dad..."Who could it be? Believe it or not, it's just me...."

Edit: Is this a cartoon, or live action?

damn you, i know exactly who you are talking about... you would hold their spaceship in your hand like a gun, and have to watch a VHS tape with it like you were flying through, you'd shoot stuff and get points and if your ship got hit (read: was pointed at the red color on the screen too much) your guy shot out of his cockpit

and i have absolutely no idea what the name was, but thanks to you i'll be addled until someone figured it out

See my link :)
Oh, no, I vividly remember Greatest American Hero being live-action...I was asking if the show he was referring to was live-action or cartoon...:p
twas a cartoon
Oh no it wasn't:

No, no, I have confused the situation here. I knew that Greatest American Hero wasn't a cartoon. Roger thought I was talking about GAH, when I was talking about the original show that we were trying to determine the name of. Joemonkey was referring to the original show which we were talking about...:p
