Black Jack Savage - The Disney production THE 100 LIVES OF BLACK JACK SAVAGE/NBC/1991 told the tale of Black Jack Savage (Steven Williams), the ghost of a legendary 17th century Caribbean pirate who was teamed with Barry Tarberry (Daniel Hugh-Kelly), a crooked Wall Street wheeler-dealer who both needed to save 100 souls to compensate for the damage done by their sinful life.

Unfortunately, once Black Jack left the safety of his castle haunt on San Pietro Island, he was fair game for the Snarks (who could transport Jack back to Hell through an entrance at the base the tree where he was originally hung).

To battle the Snarks, both Black Jack and his human counterpart Tarberry teamed up to defeat these hellish spirits so they could get about saving souls and thus win their way into salvation.

Aiding them in their mission was inventor Logan "F.X." Murphy (Steve Hytner) who fashioned a "snark buster" (resembling a vacuum cleaner) to ward off these sniveling, soul snatching netherworld nuisances. Logan called the machine a "Proton Ion Positive Negative Field Adjuster." a con-artist millionaire to salvage souls of others in exchange for their own redemption from perdition.
