Synopsis

Since landing on Meep, Blast Off Boy sure has missed his swell dog, Scooter. So the Glorps decide to give him a new pet named Twinkles. It seems like a great idea until Blast Off Boy meets the schloppo and tries to train him! Blorp has wanted a pet for years. Now he's living with the Smiths on Earth and they have a dog! The only problem is that the dog won't come out from under the couch. So Blorp sneaks in a pet of his own. How is he to know that hippos have colossal appetites? The adventures of two unlikely exchange students, Blast Off Boy and Blorp, continue in this hilarious tale.
