Based on the nighttime sitcom My Favorite Martian (1963 – 1966), this CBS cartoon from Filmation featured two aliens from Mars (with antennae sprouting from the tops of their heads) and their flying pink pet dog Okie Dokie.
They arrived on Earth and befriended newsman Tim O’Hara (voiced by Howard Morris) and his niece Katy (Jane Webb), who protected the aliens by pretending that the older, male alien (voiced by Jonathan Harris) was Katy’s Uncle Martin and that the other one was Martin’s nephew Andy (Lane Scheimer) – his real name was Andromeda.
With all these new relatives popping up at the O’Hara household, private eye Bill Brennan (also Howard Morris) and his son Brad (Lane Scheimer again) knew something was amiss, but never could determine exactly what it was.
Lorelei Brown (Jane Webb) was Tim’s daft landlady who had the hots for suave, brainy Uncle Martin.
The second season consisted of repeats.
Tim O’Hara/Bill Brennan/Okie Dokie
