Featuring “Harry and the Hendersons” — While returning from a trip in the woods, George Henderson (John Lithgow) and his family run into something with their car that turns out to be Sasquatch. Thinking the creature is dead, they take him home, but “Harry” (Kevin Peter Hall) soon awakens. Despite their initial fears, Harry is a kind and sensitive being, and the Hendersons become very fond of him. However, it is difficult to keep him a secret, and soon they begin to fear for Harry’s safety.
