Wizards vs Aliens is a science fantasy television series aimed at children. It is produced by BBC Wales and FremantleMedia Enterprises at the newly opened BBC Roath Lock Studios in Cardiff for CBBC and created by Russell T Davies and Phil Ford. The series focuses on 16-year-old wizard Tom Clarke and his scientist best friend Benjamin "Benny" Sherwood as they battle the forces of the alien Nekross, who have invaded Earth with the intent of consuming anything and anyone connected to magic. 26 episodes of the drama, spread over two years and two series, have been commissioned, although co-creator Russell T Davies says that it could continue beyond that, and could 'easily run for ten years'.

Other writers working on the show include Gareth Roberts, Joseph Lidster and Clayton Hickman. Originally announced as Aliens vs Wizards, the title was changed to "Wizards vs Aliens" on legal advice.

Wizbit was a 1985 BBC children's television show in which an alien magician called Wizbit and a large rabbit called Wooly had adventures in a place called Puzzleopolis. Although it was stated in the show that Wizbit's year-and-a-day mission was to find out all about planet Earth, this clashed somewhat with the events witnessed on screen. Wizbit was to learn about everyday life on earth by solving puzzles in a town inhabited by walking, talking sponge-balls, dice, magic wands, playing cards and 7-foot-tall rabbits. The show made an attempt to be semi-educational. The puzzles Wizbit was set were usually presented to the audience at home, with the solutions being revealed towards the end of the episode. The show was created by Barry Murray, who had formerly been Mungo Jerry's record producer, with assistance from conjuror Paul Daniels. It starred Daniels and his assistant Debbie McGee. Its theme tune was based on a song by Lead Belly, named "Ha-Ha This A Way", sung by Daniels. Wizbit's magic word was "Ostagazuzulum". Wizbit came from the planet WOW, an acronym for 'World Of Wizards'. Wizbit was visiting planet Earth for a year and a day.
