The Story

Buster's struggling back with shopping for his Mum. Suddenly, someone taps him on his shoulder, and as he looks around he sees an alien - and runs off screaming.

As he jumps over a bush he lands on Mr Crabbe and warns that there's an alien invasion in the high street. But Crabbe puts it down to too much TV. Next Buster sees PC Percy and asks what they'll do? He suggest having a cup of tea and go to bed, you'll feel much better in the morning.

Buster's frustrated that nobody believes him! So later he's telling his friends in the shed trying to work out where they've come from. Soon, they see the aliens coming down the street, and they decide to do something about it. They attack these aliens with water pistols and rotten fruit. Then they go into their carrier bags to take the ray guns and stuff.

That's when Delbert realises the backs are full of Planet X Chocky Bars on special offer at Finkley's Supermart. As it dawns on them it was a sales gimmick, they run off, chased by aliens!


PC Percy is labelled to be scared of Dogs so they gave him a police bluebottle.
The sign outside Buster's Shed says "Secret Meeting. No Unauthorised Persons...'speshially Dirty Great Slimy Aliens.
