Does anybody even remember this one from the 80s?  Apparently this Evie girl was half human and half alien and lived in California...ring any bells?  None whatsoever for me.

Quote:
"Do sharks like swimsuits made out of beef jerky?"

Trivia:
The famous actor who did the voice of Evie's alien father (who's never seen) asked for his name to not be in the credits, since he was only doing this as a favor to the producers.  Care to guess who that was?  Hint:  He was also involved in another TV show at the time---Evening Shade.

Wow, where do you find these? And this show was on for 4 years???? And I can't even hazard a guess, because I don't know Evening Shade either.

Never heard of it.... I can't believe it was on for four years... It obviously never went into reruns.

Never heard of it, but again: the quote makes me curious.

And Angela's comment gave me the idea I need to organise an 80s party some time!

Yes! I actually used to watch this show, though I probably wouldn't have remembered it without your post. :)

This must have been on during the time I didn't have a television....never heard of it. Too bad we cant get clips or episodes of all these old shows, just for kicks.
