Hey, wait for me!

Hold the boat!

I'm coming!

Noah! Mr. The Ark! I'm here.

Barely made it. I thought

you were leaving without...

Gee, Mr. Noah, sir...

...l'm gonna come too.

What are you, anyway?

Good question.

Now technically speaking...

...let's say, put me down

as a whatever.

What do you mean? What is your species?

I don't know.

I guess there's only one of me.

Then you are doomed!

Wait. Wait!

Yes, sir?

You may need this.

But, but...

I don't want to be alone!

No, I don't want to be alone.

I don't wanna be alone!

You're not alone.

Who said that?

Gee, I don't know. Maybe it's the rat

who's hanging out of the window!


No, it's Santa,

but I forgot my reindeer.

- I'm sorry, Rizzo.

- Yeah, right.


I had that weird dream again.

The one with the goat and the dwarf

and the jar of peanut butter?

It was the one where...

Forget it. You wouldn't understand.

I'd understand.

Come on, we're roommates.

I'm here for you, man.

Okay. It's the one where

I'm talking to this Noah guy...

...and he won't let me on his boat

because I'm all...


Good night, Rizzo.


What? Hey, man!

I do it all for you, ladies.

And scrunch.

Scrunch it. And right. And left.

And suck in those tummies, ladies.

Great. Way to get down

with your bad selves.

- Pass the bagel.

- Good morning, Rowlf.

Good morning, Bob.

- Good morning, everyone.

- Morning.

Hello, little people.

What an absolutely splendid day!

How are you, Piggy?

Late. I start my fabulous

new job today.

We megastar TVjournalists

have to be punctual, you know.

- TVjournalist?

- Gotta run. Bye, Kermie.

Kissie, kissie.

- Is breakfast over?

- No, why?

Because I think the bacon just ran out.

The raspberry flapovers

will be out in a moment.

Uncle Kermit, what will you do

now that you're on vacation?

Robin, once I get

those housepainters started...

...l'm gonna kick back and relax.

- When will you fix the oven, okay?

- What's wrong with it?


Yurski burski popovers kaboofed.

I'll put it on the top of my list.

There is a menu correction, okay.

We will now be serving

bologna sandwiches.

But no bread.

I'm gone.

Hey, Gonzo, aren't you performing

at that bar mitzvah today?

Electric Mayhem's covering for me.



But you never miss the chance to get

shot out of a cannon. Something wrong?

It's just that I'm sick and tired of

being a one-of-a-kind freak, that's all.

Gonzo, you are not

a one-of-a-kind freak. You're a...

A whatever?

- Yeah.

- You see?

See what I mean? I don't even know

where I came from orwho I am.

Yo, Kerm.

Were you waiting for some painters?

- They're driving away.

- What?

Animal bit one of them.

Wait, guys!

Don't let them go!

You know what you are?


Hey, wait, guys! He didn't mean it!

He's just a musician!

Distinct, huh?

More like extinct.

"Watch the sky"?

Rizzo, come here. I think my

Kap'n Alphabet is sending me a message.

I had some guacamole last night,

and it's still speaking to me.

No, really. Look, look.

I'm not kidding.

Well, it was there just a second ago.

I swear, Rizzo.

It said, "Watch the sky."

Are you sure it didn't say,

"You need help"?

Maybe you and your cereal

want to be alone.

Oh, boy.

My bologna has a first name

It's O-S-C-A-R


"R U there"?


Top secret national security facility.


Investigate threat

of extraterrestrial attack...

... cleverly disguised

as a cement factory.

General Luft, welcome.

I'm on a schedule.

What have you got?

Hard evidence.

We finally got them.

- Rentro.

- Yes, sir?

The remote.

The goat?

The remote.

I thought he said, "The goat."

Overthe past few months...

...we have received some

unusual communications.

Communications, sir,

that are not of this Earth.

- Really?

- Incoming.

Sorry about that, general.

Here's your remote.

Thank you, Rentro.

We believe that aliens are using

a contact on Earth... plan their invasion.

Now, this same message, "R U there"...

...has appeared all overthe world.

We've been lucky enough to capture

these instances on film.

The pyramids at Giza.


Okay, now, this one says...

..."R U three," but we believe that

to be a simple spelling error.

This could be vandalism,

a practical joke.

Now, you see that?

That's what I said, general.

These photos are...

I'll just be over here, then.

Right this way, general.

When I plotted

these anomalies sequentially...

...a pattern emerged.

A spiral.

Do you see the spiral?

Sir, they are out there.

They are coming here.

Do you have any idea

what you have here, Singer?

I have an inkling.


- Bubkes...

- Good day.

But, sir, we have to take action now.

I hired you to find me an alien.

And you bring me doctored photos

and a spiral.

You are on thin ice, boy.

I gotta hand it to you, sir.

I thought your presentation

was just wonderful.

Whoop, there it is.

Roberta. Dolores.


What should I do with the bills?

- Just leave them inside.

- All right.

Gonzo, do you want your new issue

of Insanity Fair?.

No, I'll get it later.

What is he doing up there?

His breakfast cereal told him

to sit on the roof.

Talk about whole-grain and nuts!



This could be painful.

It is. It is!

Greetings, Mr. Gonzo. Greetings!

What are you guys? Space fish?

We are cosmic knowledge fish.

We know many, many things.
