Junior Earplug Adventures: The Masters of Scroton (Part One)


Far away from the Museum of Future Technology…

…across the almost infinite tracts of intergalactic space…

…the planet Scroton, named by Magnus Earplug, lay waiting – one hemisphere in light, the other in perpetual darkness…

 – for something really neat to happen. The planet’s best hope for such an event either lay with the world’s leader – Nigel, the Golden Cable End, and his best friend, Magnuss Earplug…

…or the three lost desert-dwellers, Edni Gilbatross, Saskia Mudhatch, and Sponson Croupe…

…who had fled below ground the day previous whilst heroically thwarting the security force’s attempts to abduct them and press-gang them into the military. In the case of the former…

…Nigel was determined to escape the bonds of royalty, at least for a while, by returning to Earth with his terrestrial earplug chum, and visiting the museum. In fact he was so enthusiastic about personally seeing technology from future eras with his own eyes that he volunteered to spend two weeks eating highly fibrous vegetables so that he might produce sufficient intestinal gas to refuel the stolen flying saucer (taken by the galactic prospectors following their marooning on Earth when their own ship was deliberately sabotaged by the Supreme Being)…

…but was surprised to learn that (investigative stowaway) Nennigross Numbwinkle had beaten him to the punch by half a day, and was now en route with her friends to her home world aboard the vessel…

“Duh?” He said eloquently. “Okay then: my people will design and build a flying saucer for me.”
