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

[opening narration]
Narrator: It's been said that science fiction and fantasy are two different things: science fiction, the improbable made possible; fantasy, the impossible made probable. What would you have if you put these two different things together? Well, you'd have an old man named Ben who knows a lot of tricks most people don't know and a little girl named Jenny who loves him - and a journey into the heart of 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.
