The thrilling intergalactic adventures of four kids in space as told by Chorkle, a hilarious alien
It all happened because of Feeney's Original Astronaut Ice Cream. Those accursed pink bars entranced me with their sugary magic But I digress . . .
Life on Gelo was fine until the fur-headed humans arrived. They invaded our peaceful asteroid with their loud drill machines and their endless greed, stealing our precious Iridium to take back to their weird looking blue-and-green planet.
Then the mothership took off and four "little" hair-heads were marooned here. But thank Jalasu Jhuk that Hollins, Becky, Nicki, and Little Gus are actually pretty cool. They have awesome gadgets like hologram games and rocket bikes, and they can pilot starships
But there's plenty the juvenile humans don t know, like how to fight a ferocious thyss-cat or ride a giant usk-lizard. They re decidedly terrible at dealing with my stink-gland.
Luckily the Earthlings have me, Chorkle, and all five of my eyes to look after them.
If only I knew how to help them get back home . . .
