Mr. Hoober-Bloob lives way up beyond the stars, where he sends little baby humans down to Earth on the Hoober-Bloob Highway. Hoober-Bloob babies don't have to be human if they don't choose to be, but when Mr. Hoober-Bloob shows them the alternatives, they always decide take the ride. And down they come... perfectly prepared to appreciate the treats and tricks of their lives ahead.
