What is the TV show from the 80s or 90s that had a short haired girl talking in a strange voice, maybe even robotic? It was part of the show, but I can't remember what else the show was about. Maybe she was talking to something like a 'Zordon'... Can't remember.

I just remember her having short hair and having a strange voice at times... Or talking to something that had a strange voice.

Not sure if they were in a ship of some kind.

  • Could she freeze time by touching the ends of her index fingers together?

  • Zordon is a Power Rangers character...if that helps.

  • Zordon was a character in Power Rangers, but I don't recall a short haired girl with a strange voice in that show.

Is it possible that you are conflating two different 90's TV shows? I can think of two shows that both match parts of what you said, but not all. As they are similar shows, similar tone, and aired around the same time, I wonder if you're just merging the two into one hybrid in your head?

Out Of The World (1987-1991) is a show about a half-alien teenage girl living with her mother on Earth. In particular, she talks to her alien father telepathically through a strange "cube" device:

Evie is able to communicate with Troy through a special "genetic" communication device known as the "cube", which he gave to her when she turned thirteen. The cube effectively functions as a telephone line to Antareus — it can even be used to leave Troy an "answerphone" message, as seen in the episode "My Little Evie". There are no controls on the cube; Evie simply calls for her father and the cube activates when he answers, deactivating when he "hangs up". Sometimes when Troy uses his powers whilst talking through the cube, a beam of energy is emitted directly from the cube.

Unfortunately, Evie had long blonde hair:

Small Wonder (1985-1989) was a TV show about a young girl who was actually a robot, built by her "father", to act human. I don't remember her voice ever changing, though she was a robot so I guess there could have been episodes where she had voice box problems. But she was a young girl with short dark hair:

  • It wasnt either show (small wonder, or out of the world) unfortunately. Lol...its killing me not knowing what it is. But I appreciate the comments from yall trying to help me figure it out. Jan 28, 2015 at 20:20

I think the show you've been looking for might be 'The Boy from Andromeda'. There are many scenes that take part on the ship, there's a short haired girl, and the boy talks in a strange, robotic voice.


The Australian TV show "Halfway Across the Galaxy and Turn Left" (1994) had a short haired girl from the planet Zyrgon.

Girl with short hair and robotic voice would fit with "Spadla z oblakov" a 1978 Czechoslovakian sci-fi TV-series for children. It was aired in the 80's in several countries, with the title translated to "She Came Out of the Blue Sky" in English

    No. Not the She came out of the blue sky show either. I appreciate all the help everyone has been trying to find it though. Jun 21, 2019 at 0:10
  • I remember the haircut looking shirt like Jean Luc Riker's character from Star Trek.....and I remember the voice being weird sounding. Think the hair color was blond or light brown. It wasn't black I dont think. Jun 21, 2019 at 0:12

    Hi, welcome to SF&F. You should explain how this fits the question, because from just this image it doesn't look like a great match.
