Being a Martian, Uncle Martin has special powers. He is able to raise antennas on his head, and become invisible. He is able to levitate objects with his finger, although the strings holding the objects are visible sometimes. Uncle Martin is also an inventor, whose inventions include a time machine, a duplicator, and a personality changer. The first two seasons were filmed in black and white, while the third season was in color. The audio and video qualities of the episodes are very well done. The episodes in the third season became even more far-fetched, beginning and ending with time-travelling episodes. As you may have surmised from that, Uncle Martin does not fly back to Mars in the last episode. That's just as well, since I like to think that Uncle Martin has remained on Earth all this time, at least in my fond memories. Each season has special bonus features, including Ray Walston's appearance on "I've Got A Secret" with Steve Allen, behind-the-scene home movies, and interviews with Bill Bixby and Ray Walston. It's obvious from the bonus features that the cast had great chemistry together, and genuinely liked each other.
