My Favorite Martian (1963-1966): An American sitcom about a professor of anthropology from Mars who crash-lands on Earth somewhere near Los Angeles. He is befriended by Tim, a newspaper reporter, who passes off the stranded Martian as his Uncle Martin. 

By the way, the newspaper reporter was played by Bill Bixby who went on to star as David Banner in The Incredible Hulk TV series (1977-1982): “Don’t make me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.”

The stamp design, poster and text are from one of my favourite student projects. Each stamp depicts an iconic science fiction TV series from the 1960s. For a recap on the project, click here.

  1. The stamps are fun! I haven’t seen or heard of some of these shows – strange because I like old TV! I will have to watch out for them.
