The evil space pirate Gloomius Maximus is determined that since he can't have fun, nobody else will either. Unfortunately for our heroes, an invitation to Zowie Polie's third birthday party accidentally finds its way to Gloomius's ship. Gloomius never had a birthday party himself, so he sets out to make Zowie's as miserable as possible. He tries a glum ray, kidnapping Zowie and Pappy, and ultimately towing the entire Polie Planet to the Gloomy Galaxy. Between Olie's Super Silly Ray (his present to Zowie) and some help from Saturday morning hero Space Boy the day is saved for silliness. The whole planet helps charge up the Super Silly Ray and fix Gloomius's happy gear. Written by

There won't be any birthday party! Go ahead, try if you want to... Ah, Ha, ha.
You're not nice. Why are you so gloomy, Gloomie?
Why? Why? *WHY*?
I've always been gloomy.

I've always been this way... and I never liked... *birthday parties*!
No like birthday parties?
It's all a bunch of ho-ee!
No like fun presents? No like yummy cake?
As a matter of fact, I've never had a birthday party... ever... Never had.....

If my 2 1/2 yo daughter had her way just about the only thing that would appear on the TV is a continual loop of "Rolie Polie Olie: The Great Defender of Fun" with occasional breaks to show the other Rolie story about the baby bots ("Great Baby Bot Chase"?).
She really gets caught up in the story. Gloomius Maximus seems to be a sufficiently nasty character without making her too scared. I was amazed to read here that James Woods is the voice for Gloomius, never would have guessed. There is enough visual depth and occasional odd tid bits that a parent will note to make it somewhat interesting the first time through.
He's Gloomius Maximus Meanest man in the universe Gloomius Maximus He feels better when You feel WORSE!
