After taking a sip from the Fountain of Youth while vacationing in the Ponce De Leon National Park in Florida, John Martin (Herb Edelman) changed from a 45-year-old science teacher to a 12-year-old boy (Robbie Rist).
Because he only took a sip, the change was not permanent – but it was recurring and Martin had no control over when the change would occur.
John’s secret was known only to his immediate family – wife Marjorie (Joyce Bulifant) and 14-year-old son Ricky (Mike Darnell) – who explained the appearance of the 12-year-old John by claiming he was their nephew.
Throughout the series, John tried to find a cure for his predicament but was unsuccessful in his attempts.
