1982-Herbie, The Love Bug

Ok, you must be thinking the same thing I am. There was a SERIES of this?? Apparently so.
Also known as Herbie The Matchmaker, the series lasted an entire five episodes.
Dean Jones reprised his role as Jim Douglas who fell in love with Susan, played by Patricia Harty, the mother of three (including a 12 year-old Nicky Katt.) Episodes revolved around...comic situations no doubt, as Larry Linville tried to break up the couple until they finally got married in the fourth episode.

1987-Out Of This World

This was a syndicated comedy typically shown on Saturday afternoons that was aimed at young girls. The show revolved around Edie Garland, a teenage girl who was half alien. Naturally, being half alien gave her the ability to freeze time, teleport, and bring objects into and out of existence.
The show reused shots from Buck Rogers In The 25th Century the few times that Edie's father's planet was shown.
This show inexplicably ran for 96 episodes over four seasons.
