Series: My Favorite Martian

The premise of this sitcom is simple: A Martian anthropologist (Ray Walston) is stranded on Earth when his saucer crashes. He is taken in by Tim (Bill Bixby), a kindly but not too bright earthling who happens, of all things, to be a newspaper reporter. "Uncle Martin" fortunately looks just like a human being except for two retractable rabbit-ear antennae which emerge from his head. He has some special powers, but not enough to keep himself or his human sidekick out of trouble with their feather brained landlady and her suspicious love interest. Nor is he able to repair his saucer, hidden in the garage, possibly because he's not a mechanic.

A movie adaptation was released in 1999 that went by the same name.

Not to be confused with "Your Favorite Martian", an animated music video series by YouTube sensation Ray William Johnson.
