Plot Synopsis

Inspired by Dave Stevens' superhero comic books and Walt Disney Pictures feature film of the same name, THE ROCKETEER is a half-hour animated series that features a young girl named Kit Secord, who takes to the skies to protect her community after becoming the surprise recipient of a rocket-pack that gives her the ability to fly.

Set in the idyllic small town of Hughesville, each episode is comprised of two 11-minute stories that follow Kit as she embarks on a high-flying adventure to help save her community and its residents from trouble -- usually brought on by the many comedic villains who appear throughout the series. As with most superheroes, Kit has a team to help her pull off her heroic adventures and keep her identity hidden from the masses. Her best friend, Tesh, serves as Ground Control when Kit takes to the skies and is also the inventor of the hi-tech gadgets and upgrades for her rocket-pack; and her grandfather, Ambrose Secord, works at the Hughesville Airport and serves as her mechanic. Also along for the ride is Kit's loyal bulldog, Butch.

Guest stars in the first season include: Phylicia Rashad as May Songbird, a famed stunt pilot who Kit helps overcome a fear of flying after a fall from grace; Marlo Thomas as Kit's grandmother, Sitti, who comes to visit for the town's annual food festival; Annie Potts as Dave's younger sister and aviation test pilot, Scarlett; Rahul Kohli as Tesh's dad and Hughesville Trailblazers troop leader, Mr. Cheena; and D'Arcy Carden as Ava, a self-flying airplane.

In the premiere episode, "First Flight; Pilot Error," Kit receives a surprise package on her birthday containing The Rocketeer's helmet, which Grandpa Ambrose immediately recognizes as belonging to the famed superhero. With that, he unveils the rocket-pack which he was told to hang on to until the next Rocketeer was chosen. As Kit learns the ropes of becoming a flying superhero, Grandpa Ambrose and Tesh help with her training.
