Synopsis

An ambitious television reporter Tim O'Hara stumbles upon a real-life Martian whose space ship has crash landed on Earth. Believing this is the story of the millennium and his chance for a Pulitzer Prize, Tim makes his plans to expose the Martian, who, posing as Tim's Uncle Martin, takes human form with plans of his own. Obviously, Uncle Martin doesn't want to be identified. In fact, all of Tim's efforts to divulge the truth are systematically thwarted by the resourceful alien who ultimately recruits Tim to help him repair his ship for a return to Mars. They eventually become pals and join together to overcome the hilarious obstacles that confront them along the way,
