My Favorite Martian is a TV sitcom about a Martian whose spaceship crashes near Los Angeles California. The Alien is from Mars and after his ships crashing, he is stuck and stranded here on Earth. A young reporter witnessed the spaceship coming down before it crashed. He also sees the reason it crashes is because a rocket plane almost hit it. The reporter lets the Martian stay with him and tells everyone that it's is uncle. No one knows he is a Martian except for the young reporter and the reporter agrees to keep this a secret. They don't want anyone around them to freak out or panic and feel keeping his identity a secret is best so attention and publicity isn't drawn to them. While he is staying with the young reporter he is constantly trying to repair his ship so he can get back home to Mars. The Martian does have special powers, one of which includes traveling in time. He was good at inventing things and a time machine was one thing that he built. He used this to take him and the reporter back in time and to different locations. He can also bring people from the past, into the present future and speed up himself and other people to get work done faster. All of this is low key, and no one knows other than the reporter. One of his powers also includes changing his appearance so he could be in disguise. One other thing he was able to build was a machine that could take a person's memory and turn it into a pill, so the person could later take the pill and relearn from their past memories. The Martian does have a very odd romance with the landlord of the apartment in which he and the reporter stay, but the Martian is scared he will end up going back to Mars so he doesn't take the romance to a heavy level. The landlady ends up becoming close friends and dating a police officer who has suspicions of the Martian and doesn't like him. This police officer comes off as being very rude and not caring about anyone as much as he cares about himself.

Description

My Favorite Martian is a TV sitcom about a Martian whose spaceship crashes near Los Angeles California. The Alien is from Mars and after his ships crashing, he is stuck and stranded here on Earth. A young reporter witnessed the spaceship coming down before it crashed. He also sees the reason it crashes is because a rocket plane almost hit it.

The reporter lets the Martian stay with him and tells everyone that it's is uncle. No one knows he is a Martian except for the young reporter and the reporter agrees to keep this a secret. They don't want anyone around them to freak out or panic and feel keeping his identity a secret is best so attention and publicity isn't drawn to them. While he is staying with the young reporter he is constantly trying to repair his ship so he can get back home to Mars.

The Martian does have special powers, one of which includes traveling in time. He was good at inventing things and a time machine was one thing that he built. He used this to take him and the reporter back in time and to different locations. He can also bring people from the past, into the present future and speed up himself and other people to get work done faster. All of this is low key, and no one knows other than the reporter. One of his powers also includes changing his appearance so he could be in disguise. One other thing he was able to build was a machine that could take a person's memory and turn it into a pill, so the person could later take the pill and relearn from their past memories.

The Martian does have a very odd romance with the landlord of the apartment in which he and the reporter stay, but the Martian is scared he will end up going back to Mars so he doesn't take the romance to a heavy level. The landlady ends up becoming close friends and dating a police officer who has suspicions of the Martian and doesn't like him. This police officer comes off as being very rude and not caring about anyone as much as he cares about himself.My Favorite Martian is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (107 episodes). The series first aired on January 1, 1963.
