A flying saucer lands on modern day earth, and the two characters who fly it, Fi and Fum, invite a young boy and his babysitter to take a little trip with them. Unfortunately, something goes wrong and they end up lost in time. Each episode has them travelling to a different Earth of the future in their efforts to get Jerry and Alice back home. Written by
I loved this show as a little kid. The humor was clearly designed for young children, so anyone viewing episodes now on YouTube might find the show dumb. As a kid, the show was nice escapist fantasy for me. I used to wish I could go on their adventures with them and finally see what's in the back rooms of the saucer. The silly humor added to the show's appeal, and I think that comedians Ruth Buzzi and Jim Nabors were the perfect choices for the androids with their bright sunshiny optimism, which is in sharp contrast to today's surprisingly darker characters that you find in a children's program. They also chose a catchy tune for the theme song, which I like to this day.
