"Come on and meet the Little Green Man
Sydney Keets is a lucky lad. He's best friends with
a Little Green Man from
outer space, whom he calls "Greenie".
He's also friends with Greenie's buddy
Zoom-Zoom, a hovering yellow ball of electricty.
Greenie and Zoom-Zoom
landed their spaceship in Sydney's back garden one
day, and their interstellar
friendship was born.
Greenie likes to gabble and run words together,
so he refers to Sydney as
"Skeets". He wants Sydney to teach him
and Zoom-Zoom about the world,
which he's more-than happy to do. But there's an
iddy-biddy twist here,
revealed in the theme song:
has to see them,
only you and me..."
Yep. You got it. Greenie is akin to an imaginary
friend, because he and
Zoom-Zoom are invisible to everyone else but Sydney,
which opens the door
to much confusion and diversion, as you can
A shoestring production, certainly, with restricted
animation but "The Little
Green Man" overcomes its financial restraints thanks
in the main to an
inspired gabbling voice-over from the late Jon Pertwee,
who of course
excelled at that kind of thing (witness Worzel Gummidge...)
