The Odds (Boney, Itchy and Squeak) have vanquished theirmortal enemy, Larry Harry, and his two sidekicks, butthat doesn’t stop these dastardly bullies from trying to competeagainst Squeak in a radio-controlled airplane contest.But everyone is blown away when the winner turns out to bea girl. And not just any girl. Samantha Moss is eerily similar toSqueak -- she can match him note for scientific note.

Itchy isn’t too keen on inviting her into the clubhouse, butit turns out the boys need all the help they can get: aliens havelanded in their town . . . and have cloned the Odds! There areItchys and Boneys and Squeaks all over the place.

It takes all their imagination and scientific know-how tocome up with a plan to stop the clones -- but will it work?
