Purple People Eater
Ned Beatty – Shelley Winters 1988
Young Billy Johnson is left in the care of his grandfather while his parents go to Europe on vacation. He discovers some old 45 records and plays the song ‘Purple People Eater’. He sees a UFO come down and out of it emerges a short, single-eyed, purple-furred alien that makes music from a horn on its head. Billy befriends the alien and names it Purple. He and a group of friends then form a band with Purple. Their music is a big hit and they are offered a record deal. When the money-hungry owner threatens the seniors at Billy’s grandfather’s retirement village with eviction, Billy and Purple decide to intervene to save them.
