I realized my serious brain fart. Sorry.
Go for the upgrade:
I kinda want a reboot of this series with the Martian Manhunter.
Sorry, you say “Ray Walston” and this is what comes to my mind:
Ray Walston was underappreciated, IMO. I really liked him in “The Sting” and “Silver Streak” – not to mention ST:TNG. He had a likeable haughtiness that was fun to watch.
Ray Walston “singing” in Popeye (Don’t know why it doesn’t insert.)
oof, the amount of shirtless testosterone in that scene is making me feel hot and woozy.
i used to LOVE “My Favorite Martian”… but i was 8 or 9 then. i suspect it wouldn’t hold up very well.
I only know this from the cartoon-with-magical-pet adaptation, from the era when every damn thing had a cartoon-with-magical-pet adaptation.
Ray Walston was great in every roll he played.
God that show was lame. Right up there with Mister Ed.
I never knew that show was in color?
Oh man, I have to see some of those Saturday Superstar Movies. That Girl In Wonderland has gotta be awesome.
Bite your tongue!
I always enjoyed the unintended (maybe) gayness of the show: older single man lives with younger single “nephew.”
somehow always had My Favorite Martian in the same orbit as Mister Ed, and My Mother the Car.
Eek! The horrors that were perpetrated.
What is wrong with totally believable stuff - like monster families, bumbling secret agents (don’t they all bumble?), high flying city executives that yearn to be sons of the soil, or simple hill folk trapped in a culture clash by the misfortune of their land being despoiled by oil?
