A mad scientist, lord Bablah maintains an eerie research facility on a middle-sized and apparently-deserted yellow planet. To continue his study, Bablah must first investigate a puzzling correlation between his experiments and disastrous accidents taking place shortly after.
A skilful research assistant, Herschel, goes missing whilst helping Bablah conduct one of his tests. Bablah makes several attempts to recreate his aide. Many deficient mutations follow, most of which are instantly carbonised by Bablah.
Another failed attempt at recreating Herschel, the Pet-Thing is spared the gruesome fate of his fellow mutations, due to an incinerator fuel having just run out. Given the circumstances, Bablah decides to improve the hapless creature’s capabilities so he can serve him better.
To that end, Lord Bablah takes the Pet-Thing on a journey across the universe to teach him about the wonders of progress and civilisation. Should the strategy fail, the pet-thing will be relegated back to the incinerator to face a gruesome demise.
