Show Details

Marie Jensen, matriarch of the Jensen family of inventors, is excited. The world famous inventor extraordinaire, Archimedes F.W. Benson, is once again holding his annual Bensen Invention Convention, and she is certain her invention is good enough to win the first prize. So Marie, her narcoleptic inventor husband Laszlo, and kids Thomas and Whitney head off to the Bensen Invention Convention with high hopes. But, as soon as they arrive, they encounter former child-actor turned Hollywood-reject Ronnie Ron, and does he ever have a bad case of the evils! Will Ronnie Ron succeed in turning children into his minions with the use of his invention, the Teleportal Remotal? Will Thomas reject Ronnie’s brainwashing attempts or be stuck forever? Will Whitney save her brother, wake her father, and help her mother win the coveted first prize in the nick of time? Awake and rise from your stupor and travel to Cornservatory to find the crazy answers to these and other crazy questions.
