When the gorilla escapes from the "Pride of Walvis Bay," Mad Doctor Doom and Chester take advantage of the commotion to jump ship again and head back to Crackstone Manor. Realizing that fate has decreed that Little Archie will always foil his plans for world domination, Mad Doctor Doom builds a time machine to take him and Chester back to B.L.A. (Before Little Archie) so they can take over the world without interference. But no matter where or when they go, an ancestor of Little Archie is there to stand in their way.

Synopsis
In another solar system, the planet Zentrox dominates the tourism industry. The planet Glob, full of ugly, superstitious creatures who worship a stone god named "Hob-Glob," plans to invade and take over Zentrox. Zeena, the beautiful daughter of Zentrox's president, is out for a joyride when a glob ship shoots her down and she crash-lands near the farm where Little Archie is staying with his grandmother. Zeena and Little Archie are both captured and taken as prisoners to Glob, where they overhear the plan to launch the final invasion of Zeena's planet.

Indexer Notes

Zeena appears to be partly a parody of Lynda Bird Johnson, the first daughter at the time.
