DoDo, The Kid from Outer Space was an animated cartoon series that was syndicated to television from 1965-1970. DoDo was a young humanoid extraterrestrial from the planet Hena Hydro, who came to Earth in his flying saucer and had numerous adventures. For the most part, DoDo resembled an Earth child, but wore antennas on his large, pointed ears and had propellers on his heels that allowed him to fly. On Earth, DoDo shared living quarters with Professor Fingers, an eccentric scientist. Other characters included Compy the Computer Bird, (DoDo's computer/duck hybrid friend), and How and his younger sister Why, two Earth children. The characters often speak in rhymed couplets, either independently or playing off each other. A (non-rhyming) Narrator accompanies each episode.

The shorts are often based on scientific and technological advances of the period, most notably the development of computers and space exploration.

"DoDo" was created by Lady Stearn Robinson and produced by British animators Halas and Batchelor. A total of 78 five-minute episodes were filmed. The narration was provided by future UFO star Ed Bishop.
