A cult favorite about the journeys through the universe of a time-traveling eccentric, a cultural icon who has been portrayed by more than a half dozen actors since the show's 1963 debut on the BBC. The campy sci-fi fantasy developed an equally fanatical following when it was syndicated in the U.S. in the late 1970s, mostly on PBS.
A kids-oriented fantasy about a 'time cop' and his young companion who travel through history. Their stops include ancient Egypt, World War I France and 1903 Ohio (to visit the Wright Brothers). The lead character is named Phineas Bogg, a nod to Jules Verne's 'Around the World in Eighty Days' hero, Phileas Fogg.
The title character in this weekly, half-hour Nickelodeon cable network cartoon series was Jenny (Janice Kawaye), a six-foot-tall female android created by a mom-and-dad team of mad scientists. Jenny wanted to be a regular teen and fit in with her high school crowd, but could never stray too far from her avowed mission of protecting Earth from various villains -- foreign, domestic, and intergallactic. Aided and abetted Jenny from time to time was her next-door neighbor and erstwhile boyfriend, Brad (Chad Doreck). My Life as a Teenage Robot premiered on August 1, 2003.
The Six-Million Dollar Man's former fiancée gets bionic and undertakes perilous missions for a covert government agency in this two-year spin-off from ABC's comic-book adventure hit. Like astronaut Steve Austin, Jaime Sommers' superhuman powers came courtesy of electronic body parts that replaced both of her legs, her right arm and her right ear. When the series moved to NBC in 1977, Jaime was joined by Max, a bionic German Shepherd.
