Martin O'Hara, "My Favorite Martian" (1963): This fish-out-of-water comedy starred Ray Walston as an anthropologist from Mars whose spaceship crash-lands on Earth. A reporter (Bill Bixby) sees the crash and helps the Martian, whose antennae are retractable, pose as his Uncle Martin. Martin’s telepathy, telekinesis and advanced understanding of science get him and his Earthling roommate into trouble, but also help get them out of it. (Warner Bros.)
