Synopsis
Nexus Infinity Broadcasting's (NIB) Reverend Smiler While launches "Reel to Real," a virtual reality "Sensation TV" transmission to a few chosen test homes. Credit for the show is given to TV Producer Orsum Wurlds. The real creator of the show, Mr. Toshi Baird, a lowly technician at NIB, resents this oversight and conspires with rival network, Pure Moral TV (PMTV) to sabotage the transmission with deadly consequences. The Sleeze Brothers (El Ape and Deadbeat) are hired by Reverend While to investigate the incident and find the culprit for this disaster. Police Officer Pigheadski, who is always trying to catch the Sleeze Brothers in some wrong-doing, is also on the case. When El Ape reads a TV show script for producer Orsum Wurlds, Baird overhears it and thinks they are on to him. He lures the Sleeze Brothers to the NIB labs and sets a trap for them in the "Reel to Real" virtual world. The Brothers end up participating in various shows (Indiana Jones, Tom & Jerry, and Aliens) where Baird is the resident villain. In the Aliens segment, Ridley (spoof of Signourney Weavers' Ripley) comes to the rescue, literally killing the mother Alien (played by Baird). When the sabotage is revealed, the Board of PMTV confess to their involvement and shoulder the blame, thereby exonerating the Sleeze Brothers from any involvement in the disaster ... much to Officer Pigheadski's chagrin.
