Invented by Professor Popkiss and Doctor Beaker and piloted by Mike Mercury, Supercar is an amazing vehicle that can fly, go underwater, and even be driven. When pilot Bill Gibson, his little brother Jimmy and their pet monkey Mitch are rescued by the team in the first episode "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Rescue]]," Jimmy and Mitch become part of the Supercar family coming to the aid of people in distress around the world while fending off evil Masterspy and his henchman Zarin, who'll stop at nothing to get Supercar for themselves.

* KidHero: Jimmy, both [[AllJustADream in a dream of his]], and a dream of a French girl wanting to be rescued by him in Supercar (She reads the comics).

* SmallAnnoyingCreature: Mitch the Monkey (the first but sadly not the last example of this kind on an Anderson show -- see also ''Series/FireballXL5'' and ''Series/{{Stingray|1964}}''). In fact, on several occasions (such as "Ice Fall") the danger in the episode is his fault!

!!''Supercar'' provides examples of the following trope:

* AbsentMindedProfessor: Dr. Horatio Beaker, and to some extent Professor Popkiss.
* CassandraTruth: In "Transatlantic Cable", when Jimmy sees a light in a sunken submarine, none of the adults believe him. [[spoiler:As it turns out, criminals were using it to tap into the cable.]]
* CoolCar/[[CoolPlane Plane]]/[[CoolBoat Boat]]: Supercar.
* CuriousAsAMonkey: Jimmy's pet monkey, Mitch.
* KidHero: Jimmy, both [[AllJustADream in a dream of his]], and a dream of a French girl wanting to be rescued by him in Supercar (She reads the comics).
* NonhumanSidekick: Jimmy's pet [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys monkey]], Mitch.
* SmallAnnoyingCreature: Mitch the Monkey (the first but sadly not the last example of this kind on an Anderson show -- see also ''Series/FireballXL5'' and ''Series/{{Stingray|1964}}''). In fact, on several occasions (such as "Ice Fall") the danger in the episode is his fault!
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Dr. Beaker's cousin, Felicity Farnsworth, looks like Beaker in drag.
