Teen turns into car! Audience turns away!
17 September 1999 | by (Indianapolis) – See all my reviews

This was one wacky show... I had blocked it from my memory, as one does any major trauma- and then a co-worker of mine reminded me about it.

I don't remember too much of the premise- like the whys and hows. All I remember is that the lead character, looking like Marty McFly, would turn into a car- it may have been a Ranma type thing, where water affected the change. His face would distort and become the grille/headlights, his hands and feet would curl into tires.

Bad, bad show. On around the same time as Manimal, and the two are forever linked in my mind.
