Meego is a short-lived American science fiction sitcom that aired on CBS in 1997. The series starred Bronson Pinchot in the title role. Meego was canceled half way through its first season.



Meego (Pinchot) is a 9,000-year-old shape-shifting alien from the planet "Marmazon 4.0". After Meego's ship crashes, he is discovered by three children; Maggie (Michelle Trachtenberg), Alex (Jonathan Lipnicki), and Trip Parker (Erik von Detten, later played by Will Estes). The children live with their single dad, Dr. Edward Parker (Ed Begley, Jr.) and pass Meego off as human (Meego does not want anyone to know that he is extraterrestrial, and tells people he is from Canada instead). Although Meego plans to leave Earth as soon as his space ship is repaired, he become attached to their children and decides to remain on Earth to care for the three Parker children.

Meego was scheduled during CBS's Friday night Block Party programming lineup following Family Matters.



Notable guest stars
