Who is my favorite martian/alien? Well, that's not so easy to narrow down. I mean, I love watching most any alien show. I guess if I had to choose, these would make my list:
First, there's Marvin.
|Marvin the Martian|
Marvin the Martian is from Looney Tunes in case you didn't know. I mean, he's been around like forever.
Then maybe Zoot.
Uncle Martin's spacesuit from the remake of My Favorite Martian.
And who can forget ALF.
This series ran from 1986 to 1990, about a furry, obnoxious creature who crashed into the Tanner family's garage. They affectionately called him Alf (for alien life form).
Then there's Blarp.
The little monkey-like creature from the Lost in Space remake. He was too cute to not like.
I gotta include Thor.
Thor was the Supreme Commander of the Asgard who sometimes helped Jack O'Neal and SG1 on Stargate. Of the series (trilogy?), loved Stargate, liked Atlantis, tolerated Universe. Just my opinion.
But my all-time favorite alien would have to be..........drumroll please.........
|Mork and Mindy|
Mork and Mindy was a spinoff from Happy Days, and was on ABC from 1978 to 1982. Oh yeah, I was around back then. And before. I'm ancient.
Mork was sent from the planet Ork to study the crazy customs of Earthlings. His spaceship was an egg. He was taken in by Mindy and lived in her attic. Mork was played by Robin Williams. This was his breakout roll. It's really hard to explain all his crazy antics and mannerisms on this show. He mastered one liners and his energy was so intoxicating. The energizer bunny would come in a far second compared to him.
Every week, Mork would end the show by mentally reporting to Orson, the Orkan leader, what he had learned from the Earthlings. He would then sign off with "Nano, Nano", which meant goodbye in Orkan.
On second thought, I just hafta mention the following as likes too:
Star Wars' R2D2, C3PO, Chewbacca (Chewy), Yoda, the Ewoks; Gremlins' Gizmo and Stripe; and Men in Black II's Frank.
Didn't notice before now, but it looks like I have a theme. HUMOR. I guess that is why I love these aliens! I do love belly laughs, especially when shared. I truly believe laughter keeps us young and allows us to grow old. Look at me, I'm proof of that. I'm ancient, remember?
I hope you liked my alien favs and I can't wait to see how many of them get mentioned in anyone elses' post in the blog hop.
Next hop up is Morgan at Morgankatz505.blogspot.com.
Til next time, this is Julie signing off saying thanks for letting me share my memories. Oh... and Nano, Nano!
