Brother from another planet

“My Favorite Martian”   Starring Ray Walston (and Bill Bixby) “The Martian Song” b/w “When I Was a Boy On Mars.   A Little Golden Record   This was one of my favorite TV shows as a kid (along with “My Three Sons,” “Mr. Ed,” “Flipper,” “Gentle Ben,” etc, etc.)   I liked when the attenae would go up from his head when he was going to use his extra-terrestrial powers.   Nearly twenty years after “My Favorite Martian,” (1963-1966 on CBS, Sunday nights after “Lassie”),   Ray reached a new generation of fans as the memorable Mr. Hand in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”.
