Kids may have met Binky earlier in Binky in Space, when this tubby hind-leg walking black and white kitty built a rocket ship in his litter box. Now,.he’s an official certified space cat, and his relentless pursuit of aliens (wasps) leads to his falling out of a first floor window into the yard below with his trusty copilot, his pink stuffed mouse, Ted. “HOLY FUZZBUTT! Binky is in OUTER SPACE!!!” Worried he won’t be able to breathe out there in such dangerous territory, Binky locates an “oxygen source” (a garden hose), tethers himself with rope to a garden gnome, and sets out to spy on the “enemy.“ Binky’s human comes across him in the nick of time, just as the cat is being ambushed by dozens of the stinging, winged aliens, and brings him inside. It doesn’t take Binky long to realize who is still out there: Ted! “MMMEEEEOOOOWWW!!!” he howls, knowing he must undertake a new mission to rescue his pal.
