Classic TV


The story goes something like this. There’s this video arcade, where kids go in, but never come out. Mr. McStarch, a television station owner wants to find out what’s going on. But through the wonders of modern technology, we already know what goes on. Baron Bullybyte has designed and built a huge evil supercomputer called Angelbrain. What’s this got to do with the kids disappearing I hear you ask. Well, in order for Angelbrain to keep happy, it needs children to play it’s computer games. So, Magma, and evil old granny goes out and persuades kids that they want to play in the Angelbrain arcade. One in there, there’s no escape as they become hypnotised, never to see the light of day again.

Before you start opening the kitchen draw to find a sharp knife to slash your wrists with because there’s no point continuing life while there is so much evil in the world, I calculate that you should read on.

Professor Brainstrain is an inventor. Apart from inventing 6 dimensional Solitaire (may god have mercy on our souls), he has bashed together some bits and pieces to form the Telebugs, aka Chip, Samantha, Bug and Mic. Strange little flying computer things that are programmed to help people in trouble. So, off they fly to the TV building to lend a helping hand.
