Boogerbrain is the nickname of a creature from the planet Nebroxia who crash lands on Earth, thus making him an alien. He attempts to conceal his identity and blend in with his surroundings in various comical ways, his favorite-hiding behind a ventriloquist dummy. The humans he interacts with seem oblivious to the fact that they are speaking with a real dummy. His robot lackey, Phil (who is a few nuts and bolts short), is stranded with him. Boogerbrain learns about humanity from an outsider's perspective on a day by day basis as he tries to hide the fact that he is an alien.
