A comic book series by Creator/LewisTrondheim that was turned into an animated series, which told the story of two aliens who traveled the galaxy and try to conquer any planet they came across.

The AnimatedAdaptation was seen on Creator/{{Teletoon}} in Canada and Creator/{{Nicktoons}} Network in the United States.

!!Tropes:

* {{BFG}}: A lot of the alien races tend to carry enormous weapons. Our heroes, on the other hand, are armed with relatively small handguns.
* BloodKnight: As opposed to Zosky, who tends to be more about pragmatic domination and enslavement, Kaput usually just wants to crisperize people.
** Though Zosky [[NotSoAboveItAll isn't above enjoying the prospect of shooting people up himself]].
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Kaput's gun and hair are coloured red, which fits since he's a BloodKnight. Zosky's gun and antennae are yellow, the colour of caution (since he's the strategist of the duo).
* CoolShip: Averted with the duo's ship, which is tiny and seems to barely fit the two of them (though it seems to have some degree of Hammerspace built into it).
* DoesNotLikeSpam: Neither of them can stand carrots, which proved to be a problem when they went to a planet where not only were carrots everyone's TrademarkFavoriteFood, but their most valuable possessions were all carrots.
* EldritchLocation: Apparently, aside from the one galaxy the duo knows, the universe consists of black voids, white voids, and places that are ''fairly terrifying''.
* EscapeFromTheCrazyPlace: Kaput and Zosky nearly inevitably discover that the planet they have chosen to invade happens to be either [[CloudCuckooLand batshit crazy]] or [[ObfuscatingStupidity deceptively competent enough]] to warrant a retreat.
* EvilBrit: Zosky in the TV show, going by his accent.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Needless to say, the two of them have had about as much success in conquering worlds as WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain. They have actually succeeded on some occasions, but it never seems to stick and by the end of an episode they're always back to roaming the galaxy.
* FasterThanLightTravel: apparently ''[[EldritchLocation not a good idea]]'' in this universe (that, or Kaput and Zosky's signature bad luck made it seem so).
* FlatWorld: One planet the duo visits coin-shaped.
* HarmlessVillain: as the protagonists! This show could pretty much have been called ''Harmless Villains: The Show''.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Without this trope, there would ''be'' no series.
* HyperspaceArsenal: The duo's ship can carry them, their guns, their personal belongings, ample food supplies, and various guides and manuals despite barely being able to accommodate them alone.
* HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace: not really, but the places Kaput and Zosky end up after coming OUT of hyperspace... they ARE scary.
** {{Lampshaded}} on occasion.
* {{Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain}}s: In spite of seemingly effective weaponry and often supremely evil intentions, the duo appear to have never actually ''conquered'' anything.
** While their weaponry is effective, it doesn't help that most people they run into, if armed at all, have [[{{BFG}} bigger guns then theirs]]. Not to mention [[CoolShip bigger ships]]. And usually [[OverlyLongGag bigger brains.]]
** While very rare, they did conquer some planets. Though they were always forced to leave them due to diverse factors, occasionally even complete boredom.
* MythologyGag: An episode of the TV series had the duo meet a comic book artist (with a French accent) who wrote stories about them. The original comic was published in French.
* OneWingedAngel: Inhabitants of the planet Pax turn into gigantic monstrosities when angered.
* PaperPeople: They had an ''entire planet'' of these in one episode. It turns out they were that way because [[spoiler:every evening, night literally falls.]]
* {{Planetville}} [[PlanetOfHats Of Hats]]: Every. Single. Planet.
* PottyEmergency: Kaput had one during an episode where they went to a planet that seemed to be a barren wasteland. It's only after he starts relieving himself that he and Zosky realize that they've landed on Isn't That Precious, a planet full of invisible aliens. At the end of the episode, as they're flying away in their ship, Kaput says [[HereWeGoAgain he needs to go pee again.]]
* RayGun: The duo's Crisperizers.
* RedOniBlueOni: ColorCodedForYourConvenience, except in this case Zosky is Yellow as opposed to blue.
* SingleGenderRace: A planet of magicians that made all known women (and rabbits) on said planet disappear in their magic acts.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: The inhabitants of the planet Syracusa love carrots so much that it's illegal to eat anything else there.
* {{Villain Protagonist}}s
