Out of This World  

Out of This World




Evie Garland is a half-human, half-alien girl. She lives with her human mother, Donna, in Marlowe, California. Her alien father, Troy, lives on the planet Anterias, but Evie can talk to him via a crystal cube. As a benefit of her half-alien parentage, Evie develops three powers: she can pause and un-pause time, "gleep" objects into existence, and can transport herself from one place to another. Episodes usually revolve around Evie getting herself out of a situation that she has caused.

You may remember him from such films & tv shows as: Maverick (1957 & 1994), Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, Murder She Wrote and much much more.
Doug McClure has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Burt Reynolds asked that his name be left off the show's credits, since he was doing it as a favor to the producers.

Ah Doug McClure. An actor from the era when men were men, women were men and sheep were very nervous.

Naw seriously, McClure was a Dude. There's only been about a dozen or so that can have that title, maybe just over that. Clint Eastwood, Paul Newman. You know.

I always merge this show with "small wonder" in my head and when trying to explain it to someone just sound crazy. So excited about this post.

I had the very same thought!!
vixvix on July 24th, 2009 05:35 pm (UTC)
Okay, I had no idea Burt Reynolds played the dad's voice. Granted, I don't remember HEARING his voice, but still.
