* TheStoic: Mr. B's facial expression (as seen in the image) remains the same for the entire short (except when Stu is about to screw things up even worse, where he becomes justifiably angry).


The setting is an isolated farmhouse in the dead of night. A TractorBeam shoots through the window, picks up the farmer, and carries him to the window--until the floating farmer bonks into the windowsill. It turns out that the whole affair is a test for a young greenish blob of an alien, who is attempting to abduct his first Earthling. As his stern examiner scribbles on his notepad, the young alien continues to bungle the abduction, and gets more and more flustered.
