with him and know his fans will enjoy seeing this quirky new character and the

Marvin Marvin follows the adventures of a teenage alien with special powers
named Marvin (Cruikshank) who was sent to Earth by his parents in order to
protect him from evil invaders on his home planet, Klooton. Under the
supervision of his new human parents, Bob (Pat Finn, The Middle) and Liz (Mim
Drew, The Practice), Marvin tries to adjust to life on Earth as a typical
American teenager. Helping him navigate Earth's unfamiliar social customs are
Marvin's human siblings Teri (Victory Van Tuyl, Supah Ninjas) and Henry (Jacob
Bertrand, ParaNorman) and his mischievous grandfather, Pop-Pop (Casey Sander,
The Big Bang Theory). As if teaching Marvin how to act human wasn't hard
enough, the family must also conceal his real identity from the world
including Teri's curious best friend, Brianna (Camille Spirlin).

In the pilot episode, Marvin is taken in by the Formans, a quintessential
American suburban family, who now have to hide his identity and help him live
the life of a normal human kid. Unbeknownst to his human "parents" and to the
chagrin of his human "sister," Marvin sneaks out the house to attend high
