''Space Goofs'' (or ''Home To Rent'' to you Brits, ''Les Zinzins de l'espace'' in French) 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 their final years.

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

* DerangedAnimation: And that's putting it lightly.
* TheDitz: Bud

* {{Expy}}: Bud's design is an obvious rip-off of [[TheRenAndStimpyShow Ren Hoek]].
* FatBastard: Gorgious

** In one episode Gorgious called one of Etno's plans "retarded", a word you don't normally hear on a kids' show.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Maurice La Marche, Charlie Adler and Jeff Bennett
** The guy singing the theme? ''Iggy freaking Pop.''

* {{Jerkass}}: Gorgious
