The Super 6 were a group of crime-fighters for hire who worked for The Super Services Incorporated. Each of the heroes had a unique transformable talent which they applied to the tasks assigned to them.

The series featured Elevator Man, Super Scuba, Granite Man, Magneto Man and Captain Whammo. Separate, component elements of the series featured Super Bwoing, a bumbling gumshoe disguised as a guitar-playing performer, and The Brothers Matzoriley, three Jewish-Irish brothers who actually were one person with three heads, each possessing a unique personality.

The series had a catchy title song performed by 60's pop-star Gary Lewis, son of comedian Jerry Lewis.
