Spark: A Space Tail

Synopsis: Thirteen years ago, the power-mad General Zhong seized control of Planet Bana and tore it to pieces in the process. Now splintered into hundreds of shards, Zhong is Bana's evil-overlord, ruling with an iron fist. Enter Spark, a teenage monkey and his friends, Vix, a battle-ready fox, and Chunk, a tech-savvy pig. Spark learns of Zhong's secret plan to take over the universe by capturing a giant space monster known as the Kraken - a beast that has the power to create black holes. If Zhong manages to harness the Kraken's power, he'll have history's deadliest weapon at his fingertips, and it's up to Spark and his friends to stop him. Spark's journey takes him to the farthest reaches of the universe, where he encounters great dangers and discovers the secret of his true identity. An action-packed space adventure full of humor and heart, Spark is the story of a boy who takes on great responsibility and in the process discovers his rightful place in the universe.

Bana, once the most

glorious planet in all the universe,

ruled by a beloved king and queen.

Under their rule, Bana was a paradise.

But darkness took hold.

The king's envious brother, Zhong,

unleashed the space kraken,

an ancient beast with the power

to create black holes.


Bana was shattered to pieces.

The king and those loyal to him

were sucked into the kraken slick,

along with your parents.

And since that fateful day,

Zhong has ruled what remains

of Bana with an iron fist,

enslaving everyone except for...


- Bananny.

- Except for...

Except for me, Chunk and Vix.

You brought the three of us here as kids

and we've been hiding ever since,

down here in an underground bunker.

When the kraken let loose its slick,

most of Bana was torn into

thousands of pieces called shards.

Some shards disappeared into the slick,

but others were left behind.

The furthest is used as a garbage dump.

And that's where we live...

under a giant pile of trash.

Stealing from Zhong just to get by.

The end.

Good night, Bananny.

Have a good sleep.

Thank you.

Thank you very much.


The big "one-three."

That's like a thousand

in roach years, isn't it?

Shard, sweet shard.

Hey! How'd it go?

Hey, buddy, we scored big time!

We snagged a gravity module off the back

of Zhong's perimeter patrol unit.

Just what I need to finish that PEC!

- PEC?

- The Polaron Energy Converter.

Oh, it's so cool!

I tell you, his clowns almost caught us.

But Vix lost 'em in a warp chase

through a shard field.

It was great!

It was, uh...

Well, it was crazy boring.

I mean, gravity modules.

Who likes that stuff?


Huh. What's this?


Just junk.

Careful with that.

Uh, seriously, Spark.

Take it easy. You're gonna...

...hurt somebody.

Aren't you supposed to be in bed?

After an awesome birthday

of you guys leaving me home alone

to stare at the stars with the roaches,

I guess I was just too excited to sleep.

Sorry, Spark.

Happy birthday.

I'm not a kid anymore. I should be

going on missions with you guys.

Maybe next year.

I've been sitting on this rock

for 13 years.

There's gotta be more out there

for me, like a purpose.

I believe in you, buddy.

I do.

And I know Vix does,

in her irritated,

never-gonna-admit-it kind of way.

You just gotta prove to her that

you're ready for more responsibility.


All clear!


I hope you're hungry, 'cause

you're about to taste bitter defeat.

Time to kick some asteroid!




Ow. Sorry, Chunk.


It's okay, buddy.

Are you hungry now?

'Cause you just got served.

Combat is focus, Spark.

You have to find your center.

Your body's just flailing

all over the place.



I think I just pulled a muscle...

in my entire body.

Hey, let me give you a hand

there, Sparkster.

Cool, huh?

I finished that holographic replicator

I was working on.

It's not fair!

My throat's sore, I didn't eat breakfast,

I have, uh, uh, got a...

You know what? You're cheating!

That's what it is!

No one's cheating, Spark.

I just don't think you're old enough yet.

I am a thousand in roach years!

Well, I'll keep that in mind

when we go to war with the bugs.

Why is he acting like this?

Well, he's undergoing major myelination

and synaptic pruning

in the orbital frontal cortex

and excitatory neurotransmitters,

all of which have massive implications

on risk-taking

and vulnerability to boredom.


He's a teenager.

You know I'm bringing bombastic

I'm feeling f-f-fantastic

Turn up the music

Yeah, blast it

You know I'm playing like

No more Mr. Nice Guy

I'm coming for ya



Yes, yes.

A perfect likeness!

Permission to proceed

with the full-scale build.

You know, they called

my brother many things.

"Selfless ruler."

"Empathetic king."

"Loving monarch."

But they never called him...

Destroyer of Planet.

Ooh, that's good.

That's really... What?



What are you saying?


It was an oversight, Your Maternal

Malevolency. I swear.

A small oversight, hmm?

Is that it?

You think I'm small?

- Oh, n-n-no, Your Imperial...

- What?

What's wrong with being small?

Is there something wrong with that?

Nothing at all.

Okay. So I am small then.

I seem small to you.

That's what you're saying?

Yes. I mean, no! I mean,

I'll have it fixed right away.


Ohh! I regret nothing!


Third artist this week.

Oh, my lady, do I have

a surprise for you.

Not another jaywalker's head on a pike.

No, no.

Much better than that.

Much better.

Huh? What do you think?

Has a much better ring to it,

doesn't it?

Destroyer of Planets.

You're going to destroy another planet?


I found another kraken finder.


Well, let's just say 13 years of

search minions, searching and minioning,

has finally paid off.

It's been exhausting for me, really.

What exactly are you planning?

Nothing much.

Just finding the kraken,

destroying another planet

and having the rest of the universe

bow before me in fear.

That's all.

Zhong will rule all!

Why Koko laugh?

Ha! Ha!


Oh! Oh-oh-ohh!

Heroic space prodigy Spark has demolished

every foe that dare cross his path

until he comes face-to-face

with pure evil in ape-like form.

Zhong, you tore this planet apart.

You took my parents.

I just have one thing to say to you.

Your rule is over!
