Getting out of his bed in the morning, Ed certainly did not expect to deal with an alien invasion. Perhaps he hoped to spend the morning out in the fields with his friends. Perhaps the gray cat merely wanted to enjoy the sunshine and the brilliant blue skies. Unfortunately, the evil Goragons have different plans.

Ed and his friends watched in terror as the alien ship flew over their heads. Wicked creatures from another dimension were descending upon Earth. The Goragons were no ordinary invaders from outer space. They didnít just unleash powerful weapons and attempt to devastate civilizations the old-fashioned way. This evil race was known for threatening the very fabric of reality.

The terrible creatures had long been under captivity. Yet somehow the Goragons managed to break out of their prison. Now they are invading Edís home. Showing no mercy, the aliens are once again bending reality to their will. The entire planet is in grave danger. And as if their highly unsolicited invasion is not enough, the aliens target Mr. Smoozles with a mind ray. The misfortunate cat goes crazy and starts hunting down his own friends!

Ed runs as fast as he can to get away from Mr. Smoozles. But the aliens are far from being done with their assault. As if turning Mr. Smoozles berserk wasnít enough, the Goragons capture all of Edís friends. The brave little cat is left all alone to save the day. Ed will have to stop the invaders, undo the damage done to the fabric of reality, and find a way to rescue his friends. Just for good measure, Ed will also have to worry about restoring Mr. Smoozlesís mind.
