Trivia

Martin speaks what would prove to be a very foreboding line: "I'm a Martian, Tim; not a magician!" In 1973, Bill Bixby would go on to star in his own series, The Magician (1973), where he played the title role. And in his fourth TV series, he would invite Ray Walston to co-star with him in The Incredible Hulk: My Favorite Magician (1979), where Ray himself would play a magician. Destiny came full circle for both. See more »
