The Little Green Man

This wonderful 10 minute animated cartoon appeared in the 1980s (not sure of exact date) on ITV. Matthew Smith produced and wrote the original stories and this was superbly transferred from paper to film. Each episode lasted a shade under 10 minutes and at least eleven episodes (I am told that thirteen were actually made) were screened on what was Children's ITV. What made this animated series even better was the narration by former Dr. Who Jon Pertwee - who was a most unlikely narrator for this cartoon but having seen the series, proved to be the best choice since he put on all the voices for Greenie and Co.. The series began with Skeet (a young boy whose name was Sydney Keets) receiving a visitor from space who he called "Greenie." Greenie arrived along with his companion "Zoom Zoom" a small bright star like creature which defied gravity. Unless they actually wanted to (by materialising), The Little Green Man and Zoom Zoom were never seen by any other person except Skeets. The Little Green Man had magical powers and whenever he wanted to use them, two small radar like antennae would appear out of the side of his head and two yellow beams would be fired at whatever object / person Greenie wanted to influence. The Little Green Man knew very little about Earth and was here to gather information. Quite often his data would be confused such as being frightened of monkeys but not lions.

Three videos of The Little Green Man were released in the 1990s (two of which had the same episodes but different label).
