Welcome to the Pet Alien Guide at TV.com!
Show Description This series is about a young teenage boy named, Tommy Cadle who loves to hang out with his Pet Alien pals. It's a great series. Watch it! Imagine that you're an alien from outer space. You've left behind your boring, conformist dimension known as Conforma and traveled across time, space and other dimensions to arrive at planet earth, and then land in a little out-of-the-way seaside town called DeSpray Bay. More specifically, Tommy Cadle's lighthouse hideaway. That's right! Pet Aliens have crashed into the top of the lighthouse tower and made themselves at home. Unfortunately, the earth boy living there was none-too-keen on this house invasion. When Tommy woke to be greeted by a big, slobbering Gumpers, he did what any kid would do when faced with being devoured by a pink, fuzzy, lovable alien: he ran and fell off the top of his lighthouse! It looked like this was going to be a very short TV series. And then, Dinko to the rescue! The little green fellow raced down the side of the lighthouse and caught Tommy before he became a "Cadle pancake". Thus, a friendship was born – and we're not talking about the one between Swanky and himself. A special bond formed between human and a Pet Alien; sentimental and emotional attachment that remains solid, even if one can sometimes drive the other crazy.
Character Guide Tommy Cadle - Tommy Cadle is an average thirteen-year old boy who one day met alien pals. Tommy Cadle had a boring life before the aliens came. Now his life's crazy and he experiences more adventures than ever. Tommy likes to draw and express his feelings in different ways. Tommy is the main character in this animated series.
Dinko - Dinko brought a long all of these aliens to earth. Dinko is the leader of the alien gang as he helps out Tommy and his other pals. Dinko gives Tommy an adventure to his life. Without him, this series would be nothing. Dinko is one of the main stars of this series. You can't take this alien out of the series.
Gumpers - Gumpers is the big, lovable alien who does nothing but being very lazy. Gumpers is a lot like a monster, the only problem is, Gumpers is afraid of monsters. Well, actually Gumpers is afraid of everything and that's how it's going to be in the lighthouse for a while.
Flip - Flip is crazy and wild. His name, "Flip" describes a lot of his wacky personality. Flip's to hyper to even speak. Flip speaks altogether and it's extremely hard to tell what he is saying. To translate what Flip is saying, you better call up your Spanish teacher.
Swanky - Swanky is a pain in the butt. Swanky was brought up by getting everything that he wants. This makes Swanky a nerve and puts him in the "boring" character in this series. Swanky's usually found trying to take over the lighthouse for himself. He doesn't really like the other aliens, but he gets around it somehow.
Scruffy - Scruffy is the mega happy dog of your dreams. Well, he's not really a dog, he's an alien. Scruffy tagged along with the aliens because he was stranded by his owner, who we do not know. Scruffy loves to be scratched behind the ear and do all the stuff regular human-like dogs do. Without Scruffy this series would be a blur.moreless
