The 100 Lives of Black Jack Savage (1991)

Type :   Production countries :  


The series followed the story of Black Jack Savage (played by Steven Williams - Stoney Jackson in the pilot), the ghost of a legendary 17th century Caribbean pirate who teams up with Barry Tarberry , a crooked Wall Street con-artist who has escaped trial by coming to the Caribbean. Eternally damned, both of them discover that they need to save 100 souls to compensate for the damage done by their sinful lives.

Any time Black Jack tries to leave the safety of his castle haunt on San Pietro Island, he is fair game for the 'snarks'. They are entities that can transport Jack to Hell through an entrance at the base of the tree where he was originally hanged. Tarberry has his own difficulties dodging the government agents sent to extradite him back to the United States to stand trial for his crimes. Other characters on San Pietro include the corrupt governor-general, Abel Vasquez , with whom Tarberry is able to make another deal, and island activist Danielle , who is constantly trying to help protect the locals from the effects of Vasquez's corruption and is not above enlisting Tarberry's help in doing so.

The show follows the misadventures of both Black Jack and his human counterpart as they team up to dodge the law, both supernatural and secular, to make their 100 soul quota and thus win their way to salvation.

  Blackbird powerboat

A regular part of each and every episode was an appearance of the high tech powerboat. The origin of the Blackbird was built by scientist/inventor Logan "FX" Murphy from the body of an SR-71 recon/spy plane to help Tarberry battle crime around the Caribbean Islands. When not in use, the Blackbird was moored at a secret dock at Blackbird Castle on San Pietro Island. A 2002 photo of the mockup boat on a Disney backlot can be found at (
