MY FAVORITE MARTIAN: There Is No Cure For The Common Martian

Starring Ray Walston, Bill Bixby
Guest Stars:  Pamela Britton, Willard Waterman, Sharon Farrell, Phil Garris
Directed by Sidney Miller
(actor & director credits courtesy

While Martin is bedridden after catching a cold, Tim is assigned to review a department store display devoted to outer space, which is not very accurate.

Bixby has fun once again with some wild gestures looking for an invisible Martin which no one knows about but him, although there's not much new or different about this episode.  It's entertaining however, with comedy veteran Willard Waterman, formerly of radio's Great Gildersleeve, playing another pompous blowhard who threatens Tim's employment after Martin is forced to write his review.
