Kaput and Zösky are two alien space adventurers looking about the galaxy for one thing and that is total domination. With their powerful threats and their insidious schemes, the two think that they can rule over all. In fact, they are horribly mistaken. The two usually end up choosing some planet with powerful foes and dangerous inhabitants. Together, the two usually fail their plans and end up running for their lives. Ordinarily, the planets they visit are home to some strange custom or odd inhabitants, which they exploit in an effort to dominate, and which eventually gets the best of them. Their adventure usually end with the two flying off, leaving a red cloud of smoke behind. Kaput is the small, fat one who has a brilliant red Mohawk, as well as being apt to a tendency of "crisperizing" everything in his sight, and Zösky is a tall, thin being who has yellow antennae and is more fixated on formulating plans to achieve his ends. Their equipment, like they themselves, is minuscule ... Written by Theshapeshifter

Lewis Trondheim at his best!
26 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have watched this show some time ago and saw it as a wonder to the world of alien cartoons. This show is absolute proof that the French, not the Japanese, and certainly NOT the Americans, are the masters of animation. While this show is a proverbial rowboat compared to the steam-liners of other shows, it certainly tends to win the audience over with its marvelously whimsical tunes and all-too-noticeable jokes, along with its very supportive cast.

At first, I had it in my head that this show was trying to imitate "Invader Zim", when, after watching this show, I realized that this program is nothing like "Invader Zim"; it wouldn't need to lower itself to that standard.

As for the plot, it seems that Kaput, while the muscle behind the operations, is a shoot first-and ask questions later type fellow, who looks quite dumpy and has a brilliant red mohawk, and a nasty overbite. Zösky is the semi-brains for the pair and comes up with plans that oppose Kaput's ideals and who also features an odd appearance of a thin body, a set of long, yellow antennae and a pair of eyes reminiscent to Steven Seagal. Every time that Kaput and Zösky head to a planet, they have its capture in mind, without realizing that they are outdone horribly. Shortly after every occupation, they mess up their insidious schemes along with entire civilizations in hilarious and unpredictable ways. The two conquerors go around conquering the different planets and usually losing control of the planets in less than a day!

Simply put, this show has all the qualifications of a good show; fine plot, nicely drawn characters, high detail background, witty humor and fine music reminiscent of French elevator music, but lacking in an audience. If only people would have a single look at this cartoon, then perhaps the masses would rush straight to see this show.

Add a minuscule ship barely big enough to hold the two, overly formidable as well as beefy opponents in battle, along with a couple of projectile weapons known as crisperizers, and this mass of sheer, unadulterated, Lewis Trondheim genius is nothing short of great laud and appraisal!
