'''Automan''' was a short-lived cop show that aired on ABC in TheEighties. Desi Arnaz Jr. played Walter Nebicher, a police scientist/HollywoodNerd who's stuck in the computer room when he'd rather be out on the street. In response, he creates Automan (short for "Automatic Man", played by Chuck Wagner), an artificially intelligent [[ProjectedMan holographic partner]]. Automan had the ability to do any action hes seen on video, and interface with any computer system. He was also was aided by Cursor, a [[RobotBuddy blinking ball of light]] who could become virtually any object Automan needed, such as various vehicles or civilian clothing.

* CatchAFallingStar: One episode had crooks taking Automan and Walter into a plane to throw them out to their deaths. While they do that to Walter, they are stunned to see Automan do the same on his own accord. However, Automan is able to simply order Cursor to create an aircraft and it swiftly catches them both.
