When three kids explore a coach house held by a missing uncle, they discover far more than they bargained for when two robots, Otto and Theta, appear to tell them about a conspiracy against the town. By accident, they also discover a teleport machine that can take them to the planet Trialveron controlled by the alien tyrant, Duneedon. Against this threat, the kids decide to use the coach-house as the base for a community newspaper both to keep the building and to investigate the conspiracy. Along the way, they learn about writing and its various practical uses as they fight the alien forces that oppose them. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (

It was creepy as I remember...
18 March 2002 | by (St.Catharines, Ontario) – See all my reviews

The show really sticks out in my memories. That creepy clown with the organ?! I hope somebody can remind me what she had to do with the show. I do remember one episode where someone was sucking all the words out of books and it was in some creepy cave. Duneedon's head floating above that table/desk thing, Theta's creepy voice.

I'm glad someone reminded me about Sam, because Lynn and the boy are all I remembered, I think there was another kid in the second season, too. I think he was black and he was in the episodes at Fort York where some time travelling was involved. Dont forget that crossword they had in the clubhouse, and at the end of each episode they would write in another word with a black magic marker. Where do you get crosswords that large, anyway
