He doesn't like the taste of potato salad. After reading a "Buck Rogers" comic strip about him being stranded on an alien world and builds a communicator out of what's leftover from his damaged ship to call for home. E.T. is inspired to try it himself in order to return home.

Appearance[edit | edit source]
E.T. is small and has a stout, rotund main body, brown skin, no visible ears, large head, very long arms, very short legs, enormous blue eyes, bird-like feet with human-like toenails, nose and mouth of a orangutan, teeth of a horse, long neck of a snake and long thin fingers of a toad. Steven Spielberg has said that the main reason for E.T’s long neck was to reinforce the idea that no human could be in a costume although this was actually the case, it was only the animatronics that included a elongated neck
