The Gazumps live in their perfect world. They are woken one night by a strange, unfamiliar sound. The Newmans have travelled from their old worn out planet and are hoping to start a new life in the Gazump world. They begin making themselves at home – and destroying the landscape. The Gazumps show them how to look after their world and that they can live together in harmony.
