I remember watching this series as a kid. The protagonists were two teenagers - a boy and a girl. They had a VW Bus in their backyard, with some kind of satellite dish on top of it. It had something to do with space travel or time travel, I think (or communicating with someone in space?) I cannot remember many details, except for one episode, which revolved around barrels containing some radioactive materials, and a pesky neighbour (who I think appeared in all episodes, though I don't remember that well).

It definitely isn't Mystery Science Theater 3000, I know there was a VW Bus with a satellite dish there, but that's a completely different series. Also, I'm pretty sure it wasn't American - most probably British.

Does it sound like The Miraculous Mellops?

There are teenagers who communicate with aliens on the moon and one of the spacecraft is a VW Combi. There is also a nosy neighbour (described as trailer trash) who is constantly trying to steal the alien artifacts from the teenagers.

Yes! I've managed to find some episodes online and this is definitely it. It seemed much less silly when I watched it as a kid, haha... I'm unable to vote for the answer though, I'd be grateful if someone could do that. – user8332 Mar 3 '14 at 10:52
