KTSB

When good vegetables go bad!

John Astin returns as the evil Professor Mortimer Gangreen, whose funky experiments with mutant tomatoes threaten contemporary civilization! (Such as it is.)

Mankind’s only hope rests with an unlikely triumvirate: intrepid detective, Lance Boyle (Rick Rockwell), beautiful tomato scientist, Kennedi Johnson (Crystal Carson), and that cute, lovable good tomato, that merchandised marvel, the world-famous “FT!”

When money and media-types begin disappearing in “The City,” detective Boyle is assigned to the case. Armed only with his trusty yo-yo, Lance delves into the seamy underworld of TV talk shows…and makes an amazing discovery! The nefarious Gangreen, is back again…disguised as the ubiquitous Jeronahew, he skyrockets into the Couch Potato Hall of Fame — as America’s Number One TV Personality.

Ah, but there’s more here than turns the stomach. Kennedi discovers his audacious plan… the re-programming of the entire human race! “Next time I fly commercial, my bags will not be the last ones off the conveyor!” he chortles.

Alas, Kennedi’s in a bit of a bind…bound hand and foot, she’s about to become the Killer Tomatoes®’ main course in a bacon, lettuce, & human sandwich!

Can Lance and FT save her? Can they thwart Jeronahew’s twisted plan? Will the Cubs ever win the World Series? What’s the capitol of Babusuland? (You thought this was gonna be easy.)
