> Description 
Misfits of Science was a short-lived American superhero fantasy TV series from 1985, lasting for only 16 episodes. It featured a cast of super-powered humans and their madcap adventures.

Dean Paul Martin played Dr. Billy Hayes, the non-powered yet undisputed leader of this misfit team. Billy was a research scientist at the Humanidyne Institute. Kevin Peter Hall played Dr. Elvin Lincoln, Billy's colleague and close friend. "El" was a towering black man who gave himself the ability to shrink to doll size via hormonal treatments. Mark Thomas Miller was Johnny Bukowski, a.k.a. Johnny B. He was a rock and roll musician who was electrocuted on stage, thus giving him formidable electrical powers. These same powers also granted him some limited superspeed abilities, but they also made him vulnerable to water. In an early role, Courteney Cox played Gloria Dinallo, a troubled telekinetic teen with a history of juvenile delinquency. Jennifer Holmes played Gloria's probation officer, Jane Miller. Her character only appeared in the earlier episodes. Max Wright was the director of the Humanidyne Institute. Unlike the other cast members, he was not actually considered to be one of the Misfits.
