Meego Smith Triangle Not to Scale (Bronson Pinchot) is a 9,000-year-old alien from the planet Marmazon 4.0
Dr Edward Parker (Ed Begley Jr) is a heart surgeon and widower with three children – Alex (Jonathan Lipnicki), Trip (Will Estes) and Maggie (Michelle Trachtenberg). He is also desperately in need of a nanny to care for the kids while he is at work. Fate intervenes in a strange way . . .
While returning from a vacation, Meego runs into a meteor shower and his ship, the Bigga 2000 is damaged. The ship enters the earth’s atmosphere and Meego is forced to land his ship – in the backyard of the Parker home.
6-year-old Alex discovers Meego and asks him to be his nanny. He accepts the offer and Alex tells Trip the truth about Meego, but not Maggie (her brothers consider her a snitch) or their father.
Meego conceals his true identity and background and pretends to be a nanny from the agency. Edward accepts him as an agency nanny and episodes follow Meego as he struggles to repair his spaceship and care for the Parker children.
