Doug Brody (John Bedford Lloyd), is kidnapped by an alien mom named Cookie (Margaret Trigg). They marry and hilariously try to blend their blended family into everyday life. The aliens were puppets designed by Jim Henson's Creature Shop.
A sci-fi/fantasy sitcom that aired on ABC as part of its much-publicized TGIF lineup. A single dad marries an Alien wife and they try to blend their family in with the neighborhood. Written by

The premise of this show wasn't bad, but it's timing and time slot may have done it in.
Alien Brady Bunch? Perhaps. The baby had funny lines that became catchphrases around my house. Alien kids from Henson's Muppet Shop, so they were quality. I would have liked to see more, and see the episodes I missed which may have given exposition on the looks of the kids...
Well written, to my mind. Easy to watch, laughs abound in each episode. Is that so bad? It was supposed to be a comedy. However, most well written comedies don't survive anywhere on TV, much less basic cable. Such a shame.
Nice lighthearted fare, safe for the whole family.
