''Space Goofs'' (also known as ''Home To Rent'' in Britain and ''Les Zinzins de l'espace'' in France) is a French animated series produced by Gaumont Film Company, Gunther-Waul Productions and Xilam for France 3 that first aired in 1997. It tells the story of five aliens, the intelligent Etno, couch potato Bud, clean freak Candy, gluttonous Gorgious and two-headed Stereo, who have crashed on Earth and have taken residence in the attic of an old house. Their main tasks are to chase away anybody who takes residence in the old house and try to get back home. Most might remember this played on FoxKids during the late 90's.

''Stupid Invaders'', a video game based on the series was released a few years after the show itself ended.

!!This series provides examples of:
* AcidRefluxNightmare: After eating too many sweets, Gorgious has a nightmare where he gambles for his teeth.
* AliensSpeakingEnglish
* AmbiguouslyGay: Candy.
** WordOfGay: Made more blatant in the video game.
* AndIMustScream
* {{Animesque}}: Parodied in the episode "Manga Mania".
* ArtEvolution: Between the first season in 1997 and the second in 2005, the increase in quality is really obvious.
* BigEater / ExtremeOmnivore: Gorgious. Candy's flower from "Flora and Feast" had an appetite that outdid Gorgious, even eating the house and part of the screen.
* BunglingInventor: Etno's spaceships have a tendency to explode.
* ButtMonkey: Poor Candy!
* TheCameo: In the episode where Etno becomes a PhonyPsychic, the antagonists from the video game make an appearance in the line to get their reading.
* CharacterExaggeration: In the video game, Candy goes from crossdressing to actually wanting a sex change operation.
* DerangedAnimation: And that's putting it lightly.
* TheDitz: Bud.
* DontTryThisAtHome: In the ChristmasEpisode, the aliens are trying to drive Santa Claus away. He tries to slide down the chimney but they shock him with electricity. Before they do, they all (including Santa) urge the viewer not to try this at home.
* EarthShatteringKaboom: In the video game, [[spoiler: the aliens accidentally blow up the Earth as they escape.]]
* ExpositoryThemeTune: By none other than Music/IggyPop. It's titled "Monster Men".
** ThemeTuneExtended: There's an extended version of "Monster Men" that runs just under ''four minutes''.
* {{Expy}}: Bud's design is an obvious rip-off of [[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow Ren Hoek]].
* FatBastard: Gorgious
* FMinusMinus: Combines with only 1 trope below this in the school episode, but technically not showing a grade.
* FourFingeredHands: Because of the characters being aliens. Even lampshaded in the school episode.
-->'''Teacher:''' How much is 5+5?\\
''(Candy is nervous)''\\
'''Random Girl:''' Use your fingers.\\
'''Candy:''' Hmmmm. EIGHT!
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Literally.
** In one episode Gorgious called one of Etno's plans "retarded", a word you don't normally hear on a kids' show.
* HairyGirl: In "Bollywood Aliens" an Indian woman stays in the house and in one scene she can be seen shaving her legs in the bath.
* HaveANiceDeath: The video game has loads of possible amusing ways to die.
* HeartBeatsOutOfChest: Happens to Bud after falling in love with the broken-up lady from the episode "First Love".
* HighPressureEmotion: Including having set up during the moment Candy becomes DrivenToMadness from "Bats in the Belfry".
* HumansAreBastards: Just about every human that comes to the house is either stupid, a jerk or both. Not that the aliens are much better.
* {{Jerkass}}: Gorgious
* LittleGreenMen: Candy
* ManChild: Bud
* MarketBasedTitle: The 1997 season was retitled ''Home to Rent'' in the UK. When the show was revived and aired on Nicktoons they retained the original title.
* MultiPartEpisode: The episodes "Once Upon a Time" and "Toon In, Drop Out" are split into two parts.
* MultipleHeadCase: Stereo
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: A bat talks like Christopher Walken.
* NoShirtLongJacket: Bud's biker disguise from the episode "First Love". Here he wears shorts, a green hat and a black small jacket, but no shirt.
* ObsessedWithFood: Gorgious
* OnlySaneMan: Etno
* PutOnABus: Stereo in the second season, [[TheBusCameBack though he came back in 2 episodes]].
* TheSmartGuy: Etno
* ShesAManInJapan: In the Latin American dub Candy is female.
* ShoutOut: In "Manga Mania" when an obnoxious manga character moves in and refuses to leave they disguise themselves as European comic book characters to scare him off. Specifically Franchise/{{Tintin}}, [[ComicBook/{{Asterix}} Obelix]], ComicBook/LuckyLuke and a [[ComicBook/TheSmurfs Smurf]].
* SphereEyes
* SpringtimeForHitler: The aliens try making the house look as much a dump as possible to dissuade people from moving in. [[spoiler: A farmer and his animals then take interest.]]
* TeamMom and TeamDad: Candy and Etno, respectively.
* TeensAreMonsters: In one episode, Bud befriends a rather obnoxious human teenager.
* TheLastStraw: In "Bats in the Belfry", Candy snaps after being bullied enough by bats. When he chases them away, he chews out the other aliens as well. This moment also counts as a BerserkButton, UnstoppableRage or a DrivenToMadness example.
** From the PrisonEpisode, the aliens attempt to get out of the prison built around their house. One attempt involves the aliens making a bridge. When Ernie comes, he is holding an anvil, which is enough for the alien-bridge to collapse and fall.
* TheyLookLikeUsNow: The gang have a machine that makes them look like humans, Earth animals, or even inanimate objects.
* TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Most of Candy's diguises are women.
* VulgarHumor: The video game adaptation ''Stupid Invaders'' features adult humor with strong language and a lot of gross moments.
* YouCantGetYeFlask: Happens in the episode "We Robot", where all of the other aliens want Etno's robot, even though at first he says it is programmed only for him. To get out of this trope, Etno's robot does what they wanted.
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: Part of the trope's name is used for an episode title.
