The ChubbChubbs introduces the alien inhabitants of the Planet Glorf, including Meeper, its earnest but oh so awkward hero, a singing Diva, the Zyzaks, 20 foot-tall red-eyed bullies, and the ChubbChubbs. In this debut short, Meeper valiantly tries to warn the patrons of the Ale-E-Inn, an intergalactic watering hole with its own constellation of stars, of impending danger only to find himself face to face with the toughest creatures in the universe.
A little alien with a big problem.

Excuse me. Coming through.
After the ending credits there is a sequence where Meeper performs his own version of R-E-S-P-E-C-T at the bar. The audience doesn't seem to react to him very positively until the chubbchubbs who are his backup singers show them their teeth. See more
