Back to the Ship, Flip!

Your rating: None Average: 2.3 (3 votes)

Ferd, a grumpy, old alien whose job is to collect specimens from various planets, has to share his meager existence with Flip, a rambunctious, excitable dog who is always getting out and away.

While collecting sheep on a farm somewhere in the Midwest, Flip does just this. As much as Ferd would like to leave Flip behind, he mustn't. See, Flip's waste product is the fuel for Ferd's ship. Now, Ferd must entice Flip back to the ship by offering him treats, leading him around hedges and avoiding the roaming sheep who will trample him. Whenever Flip produces fuel, Ferd must use the tractor beam on his ship to retrieve the fuel.

Good luck, Ferd! Back to ship, Flip!
