Teen Angel

1 9 9 7 – 1 9 9 8 (USA)
17 x 30 minute episodes

The teen of the title of this odd ABC sitcom was Marty (Mike Damus), a happy-go-lucky adolescent who met a sudden demise after eating a six-month-old hamburger he found under his pal Steve’s bed.

Transported to a place with white fluffy clouds and bright sunlight, he was given feathery wings and sent right back to Earth to be a guardian angel for Steve (Corbin Allred), and hopefully, help make the dorkiest kid in school a little cooler.

Marty’s new powers were awesome – he could make the school bully bang his own head against a locker, or summon up President James Monroe to help in a history exam – but if he got too smart-alecky he would be called on the carpet by his boss, the Head (Ron Glass), a disembodied cranium who popped up in unlikely places, and who explained that he was not God, but “God’s cousin, Rod”.

Judy (ex-Brady Bunch star Maureen McCormick) was Steve’s single mom, Katie (Katie Volding) his bubbly little sis, Aunt Pam (Conchata Ferrell) a disgruntled postal worker, and Jordan (Jordan Brower) the coolest kid in school – who, with a little help from Marty, became Steve’s friend.
