Storyline

Old Ben is a kind old man who likes to play with the kids, whether it's baseball or hide and seek. Little Jenny, who has to wear braces on her legs, is particularly fond of him. He tells her he has to leave soon since the men who are after him will soon arrive. He assures her that he's not a criminal or anything like that. She wants him to take her with him but he says it can't be done. He does fix the problem with her legs however. Turns out Old Ben is important where he comes from and arranges it so that he and Jenny can get what they want. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[closing narration]
Narrator: Mrs. Gann will be in for a big surprise when she finds this
[photo of a handsome young man]
Narrator: under Jenny's pillow, because Mrs. Gann has more temper than imagination. She'll never dream that this is a picture of Old Ben, as he really looks, and it will never occur to her that eventually her niece will grow up to be an honest-to-goodness queen - somewhere in The Twilight Zone.

Old Ben
29 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

J. Pat O'Malley stars as likable old man the kids call old Ben. Ben likes to play games with the neighborhood kids like Baseball and Hide & Go Seek, but he adds an extra twist to the latter game by becoming a monster! You see, old Ben is in reality from outer space, and has the ability to shape-shift, but he also has another secret, that he is an intergalactic fugitive, on the run from his own people, but quite fond of young Jenny(played by Susan Gordon) who will become a crucial part of his escape plan when his people catch up with him... Endearing sci-fi tale is more of a fantasy or fairy tale, but a nice episode for kids especially, and is easy to take for adults.
