    Years ago there was a kid show on Saturday ..there where 3 parts but I never saw the last.

    Set in the future (?) the human race has been conquired by aliens who look like mantus rays with love skinny legs...and when a boy or girl turns a certain age there is a ceramony and the alien comes and attached a plate to the top of their heads.. A chosen few are taken away to the "city" to serve the aliens.

    The hereo as I recall finds a way to infiltarte the city by wearing a fake plate..after that my memory gets fuzzy...I remember being very upset when PBS never aired the third episode.

    This is not urgent, just a long lost memory that haunts me. Thanks.

    There were two 13 part series which rather stretched out two 180 page books to the limits of human endurance. The money ran out before they could make a thrid series, mercifully...

    What there was was quite good. But they did have a lot of costly effects so it was very expensive for a childrens' TV show
