Join Astro Mouse, the insightful Light Bulb,
and their… er… pet C**a, as they battle intergalactic potatoes, (delicious)
astro chickens, and solve a civil war between mint and fruit flavored chewing
gum. Getting lost in space has never been so ridiculous!
Large-headed Astro Mouse, an off-white, green-eyed anthropomorphic rodent, and his friend Light Bulb, a floating, faceless, stick-limbed light bulb whose "dad's a microwave and mom's a toaster oven," have been sent from Earth on a mission to determine whether the moon is really made of cheese but have gotten lost along the way, despite the journey being "a straight shot." Wandering through space, the duo finds themselves in various nonsensical situations, including getting caught in a wrestling match with a five-eyed potato, stranding themselves on a warring mint green vs. fruit pink chewing gum planet, and adopting a lump of newly animated caca as a pet. When the ship gets taken over by Astro Chicken and his sidekick, Lamp, both formerly encased in a large ball of boogers, things aren't looking good for the motley crew. But a plan to conveniently strand the intruders on a planet signaling distress might just be their ticket out. Fine-lined, noodle-limbed art coincides with abundant pop cultural nods as Sol s (Bunuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles) keeps the absurd, often scatological, humor coming in this series opener.
