Gustav Gorky, extraterrestrial reporter from the planet Gorky, is sent by his boss to the extremely unpopular planet Earth of all places, to write about the Earthlings. She also instructs him to search for a colleague, old “eager beaver” Y9, who has gone missing. A reporter’s gotta do what a reporter’s gotta do, and so Gustav finds himself landing rather unceremoniously on Earth, where he meets the Broeselmann Family, that’s Mother, Father, Willi and Grandad Hermann. Thanks to his unexpected powers and talents, Gustav soon becomes an indispensable helping hand in the Broeselmanns’ home and garden. And Willi’s maths suddenly show a surprising improvement, when Gustav secretly accompanies him to school in the shape of a pencil. For Gustav, on the other hand, the Broeselmanns are highly interesting subjects to study. Father Broeselmann runs a relatively successful snack bar –but only relatively successful until Gustav comes up with the idea of dematerialising Broeselmann’s gherkins and giving them new flavours, like sausage or chips or banana! In next to no time, the new foods turn Father Broeselmann into the ultimate snack bar king, which soon causes trouble with the competition, of course. Ruthless businessman Bernsteiner will stop at nothing now to get his hands on the gherkin secret. Unluckily for him, Gustav himself ends up in Bernsteiner’s hands and in mortal danger, too. Imprisoned in the shape of a gherkin, he only just escapes from being chopped into little slices by Bernsteiner’s knife! At the very last second, Y9 surfaces again and manages to save Gustav from certain death in Bernsteiner’s laboratory. Exhausted, Gustav returns to his native planet to report – but he will return one day, of that he is certain!
