Go To

Oh No! There's no rules, it's amazing.
So now it's time to act fast,
got a home base in this Swell-Mart 'till we get our parents back.
And now we plan our sweet attack.
We'll show those crazy Brainlings where the real party's at.

Oh No! It's An Alien Invasion is a Canadian CG-Animated Series by Nelvana.

The Earth has been invaded by an alien race known as the Brainlings. As part of their invasion, the Brainlings have abducted the vast majority of the adult humans on Earth, leaving the population mostly children.

Well, then it's up to the kids to fight back. Under the leadership of a young boy named Nate, the kids have taken refuge in a department store, and have formed a team intent on fighting the Brainlings off the planet and rescueing the adults, most chiefly their parents.

The series ran from August 3rd, 2013, to April 30th, 2015.
