Manos...it's frightening!

Back in 1983, when I first got Nickelodeon they often aired late 70s Canadian shows like "The Tomorrow People"  - I vaguely remember watching a few episodes of this.  I distinctively remember the premise of one show about bubble-skin jump suits, about these alien beings possessing the lame jogging outfits and one of them lurking about the ship lol.

Was there a later version of this?  I remember watching it in the early 90s but it seemed to be an English production of that time.  Could be I'm way off and remembering something else.....

It was British, though they showed it on Canadian television when I was young in the '70's.  I just picked up the first DVD set for myself for Christmas; somehow, I don't remember it being quite so lame...  BounceGiggle

Yup, the second version of the series ran from 1992 to 1995.  http://imdb.com/title/tt0103568/

Oh wow -- I never realized this.  (Still the disco-era version is irreplaceable.)

I only saw the 90's version but I know of the original. I don't remember who the bad guys were but I recall the other two from later specials/seasons, there was a mad scientist who had an unhealthy love for the common mosquito and a guy who created monsoons to flood land for his crop to be made into Cornelious 9sp) Cornflakes, they called him Mr. Monsoon.

Actually his name was Col. Jeremiah J. Cobb, although the episode he appeared in was called Monsoon Man. The mad scientist was Dr. Eliza Jeffries, a.k.a. Dr. Culex.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
