I've been away for a few days, so excuse the lack of posts. I'll have something tomorrow.
World Animal Space Patrol THREE
I Want My Mummi
BTW: check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animals_in_space for details on the actual space animals this is based on.
This is a 2x3 panel page with the first 4 panels showing a fish in special bowl inside a space station,
[ She was the first fish in space. Back in '73. ]
A fish bowl in space with Mummi, the mummichog.
The bowl is a modified astronaut helmet, with little thrusters for moving about in space.
[ She liked it. And it liked her. ]
Another view of the bowl.
[ For to Mummi, space become a friend. A living entity. A companion. ]
[ She could communicate with it. Understand it. Scan it. ]
[ And in return it enriched her. Informed her. Protected her. ]
A shape visible behind the bowl, distorted by the water and bowl. The shape is a space-suited chimp, who we meet later in this episode, but for now you don't want to show that clearly.
[ But space always has its surprises. ]
A gloved hand (spacesuit gloves) in the bowl about to grab the startled mummichog.
Page with two small panels across, then a full width panel with titles.
A space shuttle type craft about to dock with the international space station. I figure no-one else is really using the international space station, so our animals friends are. Speech bubble from the space ship.
From space shuttle (Hiro): "Cheer up, friend Horst."
Horst and Hiro inside the shuttle, docking with the space station.
Horst: "Sorry, Hiro. I'm a bit ... how you say? Down in the dumpster."
Hiro: "Ham's death was hard on you."
Hiro is loading cartons of fish food onto Horst's back. So he's standing with all four feet on the ground like a real turtle. There's at least a partial W.A.S.P. logo in the area they are in.
Horst: "If only my Shell Shield power was bigger I may have saved him."
Hiro: Do not beat up on yourself, old friend. You did all you could."
Hiro walking (hopping?) while Horst carries the fish food cartons on his shell.
Hiro: "Hey, Mummi. We're home with the shopping (hee hee)!"
Her empty bowl.
Hiro: "Mummi? You there?"
Horst: "(gasp) She's gone!"
TITLES: I Want My Mummi
Alien in a doorway.
(off) Hiro: "What the ... ?!?"
Horst uses his shell shield (the force shield he generates that radiates out from his shell, so it is like a second shell of force energy, while Hiro shelters behind.
Zap! Zap! (from the alien) some of which bounces off Horst's shield.
Hiro leaps over Horst in kung-fu style. Horst still using his shell shield ability.
And Hiro kicks the alien, breaking either some part of the alien's suit (helmet if they have one) or just giving it a really good kicking. Nice large action frame.
Hiro standing on top of the downed alien. Horst coming into frame.
Horst: "We'd better call Albert."
Horst talking to Albert via videophone.
Horst: "... there was only one onboard."
Albert (on phone): "Must have been left behind as a rearguard."
Close up of the videophone screen with Albert.
Albert (on phone): "Mummi is vital to W.A.S.P. There's no telling what the aliens have done with her."
(off): "They haven't done a thing ... "
A shadowy figure holding something. Just who and what becomes clear in the next frame, but in this frame both should be darkened out so only the shapes are there.
"Mummi's right here ... "
Large panel. The shadowy figure holding something is revealed as a chimp in a spacesuit, with helmet off, looking very much like Ham. However, this chimp has the name tag Enos, and has a NASA logo on his suit rather than a W.A.S.P. one. The object he is holding is Mummi, the fish, in a plastic bag, just like the cliche fairground way of storing fish. Horst and Hiro should be partially visible in the frame, perhaps as silhouettes in the foreground or off to one side.
Enos: "... with me."
Horst: "Mein Gott! Ham? Is that you?"
Enos in close up, make sure we can see his name tag, Enos.
Enos: "Ham? No, I'm not Ham. But how is he... ?
Enos, Hiro and Horst all in frame. Enos speaks, while the others look shocked.
Enos: " How is my brother?"
Put exclamation marks !! above Horst and Hiro.
