Shades of E.T.

This obscure English made childrens science fiction movie is so similar to E.T., that its amazing Steven Spielberg din't get sued! A group of school children at a boarding school spot a flying saucer and then soon meet a diminutive being from Venus. The alien whom the kids name "Meba", communicates with the children by telepathy. Bad guys who were planning to steal valuables from the school safe, try to kidnap "Meba" to make use of his remarkable abilities. But the children fight the bad guys and keep their friend "Meba" out the hands of the crooks and the bad guys are rounded up with "Meba"s help at the end.

"Meba" the alien is played by a puppet that resembles a featherless owl in a white nuns outfit. It sometimes makes strange purring noises. One odd element is that the visitor does not arrive in a flying saucer, the inhabitants of Venus travel by turning into flying saucers. There is one scene where one of the children takes "Meba" for a ride on her bike just as in E.T.
