It started innocently enough: 11 year-old Peter Rutherford thought he could create a UFO. And the fact was, he really could – but that wasn’t the problem. No, the problem was that he actually did!
In 1963, the little town of Fogey Mills was much like little towns all over North America: people were respectful, law-abiding citizens who paid their taxes, mowed their lawns, walked their dogs, and minded their own business. Very, very sensible people, each and every one of them.
At least they were until they became convinced that they were the point of First Contact with beings from another planet! Then…well then poor Fogey Mills seemed to become a destination for every nut, con artist, huckster and crook on Earth. And the poor citizens of poor Fogey Mills became their willing targets.
Peter hadn’t intended his experiment to cause so much trouble, but just like it’s impossible to stuff toothpaste back into the tube once it’s squirted out, craziness is just as hard to contain once it takes over a town. Worse still, if he was discovered to be the real cause of the hoax he knew the townsfolk would turn on his family. After all, some people were still laughing at Peter’s father digging a nuclear fallout shelter right where the septic tank was buried in their backyard.
It’s hard enough to keep a secret at the best of times, but when a new kid in town, Gilbert Kim - wannabe Boy Reporter - started to nose around things began to get hot for Peter.
But for every problem, there is a solution. And in Peter’s case, that solution depended on the ‘Society of Doofuses’: tough-guy Lawrence, dangerously clumsy Flinch, the insane Grubber sisters, and the ever-wise Eddie.
The question is, could they pull it off?
A Bunch of Doofuses and an Unidentified Flying Object will take you back to those wonderful pre-‘Predator’ days, long before ‘ET’ wanted to go home, even before ‘Spock’ declared what was and wasn’t logical, when the moon was still made of green cheese and every strange light in the sky was looked upon as a possible flying saucer from Mars.
And when silliness was more contagious than the common cold!
