"My Favorite Martian" Pay the Man the $24 (TV Episode 1966) - Plot Summary Poster

Plot Summary

  • Tim uses Martin's CCTBS to go back to do some research for his historical novel on the 1626 sale of Manhattan from the Indians to the Dutch. Apparently, while back in time, Tim accidentally implied to Chief Buffalo that the $24 or 60 guilder sale price was a steal, the Chief thinking that he meant that Peter Minuit is trying to steal the island. This prevents the sale, so in the present day, what is now New York does not belong to the United States. Martin and Tim need to go back to 1626 Manhattan to rectify the situation. Martin is a good mediator, but the negotiations hit a snag when Chief Buffalo's daughter, Little Feather, takes a liking to Tim. Unbeknownst to Tim, he and Little Feather get engaged, and as a wedding gift, Chief Buffalo wants to give Manhattan to Tim. They need to find Little Feather's true mate to be, Young Deer, to get Tim out of this mess and get the sale of the island back on track. Ultimately, Martin needs to act as the Great Warrior Spirit to convince Chief Buffalo to do all the right things.
