What kind of things could you learn from a hand puppet? Professor Dan Petory is here to save the day, and his topic of the hour is UFOs. With the background accompaniment of the Soybean Sisters, this ten minute short answers a variety of important questions including why do UFOs fly in a zig zag pattern, what do aliens look like, and why constellations appear the way they do?

The memory works in mysterious ways. From stereotypes that help us to remember people, to what is left of the day we broke up, or even to what other creatures will remember of humans after our race is extinguished, the abstract comments of the narrator are illustrated in a literal way by the animation - resulting in holy toilet cities and other cyclopean creatures.

In both short films we have a single topic, but an eccentric narrator who manages to twist each topic into something bizarre and alien. The viewer is left with an odd mix of images and a confused reality. In each, coherent thought is hidden in amongst the madness.
