Meet Fantastic Max (1988-1991), a talking baby living the dream as a space traveler. With his two companions FX, an alien from the planet Twinkle Twinkle, and AB Sitter, a man made of blocks, Max has intergalactic adventures in a baby bottle shaped rocket ship.
However, no one knows about Max as a space traveler, not even his own family. FX and AB pose as dolls in order to keep Max’s secret.
FX is Max’s closest friend and has special powers. The most common spell he uses is to turn sand into rocket ships. AB is more like an adult, who puts up with Max’s childish ideas. Of course, he only tries to look out for Max.
Max is bright, brave, and resourceful with his diaper pin, but still relates to things the way that a baby would. He can handle spankings, but fears baby baths. Can you blame him?
Sometimes FX’s cousin XS, who is just as magical, joins the team, but on his own terms. XS is a practical joker, who causes nothing but trouble and thinks it’s all fun and games. Will he ever learn?
Another reoccurring alien character is Jumping Jack. He collects all of the garbage out in space and always talks in rap. Jack’s rapping style isn’t bad, but he’s no Eminem.
This was a good series. I always wandered how Max, FX, and AB manage to travel through space so easily without any spacesuits. Do you suppose that when Max grows up, he could be an astronaut with the knowledge of all the different planets he has visited?
