Automan Archive

Automan appeared on ABC from December of 1983 through April of 1984. The show tells the story of computer wizz policeman Walter Nebicher and his hologram Automan. The show featured Tron like animation and a super cool futuristic hologram car.

The series was created by Glen A. Larson. Walter was played by Desi Arnaz Jr. Automan was played by Chuck Wagner. Various other cast members, such as Heather McNair, went on to appear in other 80s clasics like AirWolf, Knight Rider, and Street Hawk.

An Automan figure was made by Acamas toys. It seems to have been more available in the U.K. than it was in the U.S.A. Several other Automan figures are shown on the back of the card but have not been located.
