Wiki Wednesday - Edition Two

It's Wednesday again, which means time for WIKI WEDNESDAY and the Time to learn something!

It's simple enough.

1. Go to Wikipedia.
2. Click on "Random article" in the left-hand sidebar box.
3. Post it!

Here's what I got:
Terry and the Pirates, a television adventure series based on Milton Caniff's popular comic strip, was telecast from June 26, 1953 to November 21, 1953. The 18 episodes included "Macao Gold," "Black Market in Death," "The Boxer's Rebellion," "The Case of the Little Mandarin" and "Chinese Coffin." The syndicated series was produced in 1952 by Don Sharpe Enterprises.

USAAF Colonel Terry Lee (John Baer) heads to the Far East to locate a gold mine he inherited from his grandfather. Once in the Orient, Lee becomes a pilot with Air Cathay, a cargo and passenger airline owned and operated by the cunning Chopstick Joe (Jack Reitze), who is not always honest. His friend and co-pilot is Charles C. Charles, aka Hotshot Charlie (William Tracy), while the romantic interest is provided by the attractive blonde Burma (Sandra Spence). Lee has several encounters with his beautiful and mysterious nemesis, Lai Choi San, aka The Dragon Lady (Gloria Saunders).

I've never seen this series nor heard of it. Anyone else?
