It all started when I ordered #86/68 on a secret mission
Inside the President's flashback...
Don't worry, Mr. President! I'll do my best to put a
stop to the Cuban Space Program. HUT HUT HUT!
I have the utmost faith in you, #86/68! You most of
all understand that the moon belongs to America, not Cuba.
HUT HUT HUT! I'll teach those commies not to play on
#86/68 receives his mission briefing from
Those commies have no right to outer space! Space is
a democracy! Infiltrate the Cuban's launch pad and sabotage their ship! If it manages to take off,
there is no telling how far communism might spread!
You can count on me sir!
Godspeed be with you! Now get moving!
#86/68 arrives in Cuba
HUT HUT HUT! Now to get to the launch pad!
Oh no! #86/68 has been ambushed!
I'll roll you all tighter than a Cuban cigar! HUT HUT HUT!
It's Fidel Castro!
I don't think so, #86/68. We clearly outnumber you
by a great deal! But if you insist upon fighting, I
have no problems watching you die!
I guess I have no choice.
Back in the present...
Have you heard from him since he was captured?
No, but a intelligence report indicates he's alive and
being held captive. We need your help on this one,
Okay, let's go to a commercial break. I'll get
#86/68 back, don't you worry.
Hours later, deep inside a Cuban military

be something I can do to escape! If I just had
Suddenly, Larry King plows through the
Get in #86/68, we don't have much time!
Sweet touchdown of justice! Let's ride!
Larry King and #86/68 begin their escape!
Looks like we've got trouble coming up!
#86/68 and Larry King are fighting their
Bam! Ka-bam! Ker-steve! Clunk!
#86/68 and Larry King have escaped!
We don't have much time to spare! Let's get to the
After today, Cuba will never again be doubted! Start
the launch countdown on my mark!
Not so fast, Castro!
No! It can't be!
But it is! HUT HUT HUT HIKE!
Caller from Cuba, prepare to taste my fist!
Bah! I will board this ship myself! You dare
not chase me into outer space!
Castro has boarded the ship!
The countdown has been initiated!
We've got to follow him! He can't get away!
We don't have much time! The countdown has been
The ship has taken off! Destination:
Those meddling Americans! I will have to pilot the
What's this? STOWAWAYS!
Turn this ship around right now, Castro!
What! How did you get on board? Get off my
ship at once!
It's no use! He's too stubborn. We'll have to
pilot this ship back to Earth ourselves!
#86/68 commandeers the controls!
Damn! The controls are all in Cuban!
I will not capitulate to America! Space belongs to
A fight has broken out in space!
Bam! Pow! Thud-zam!
Fidel Castro has been defeated!
Now let's get this ship back to America!
We've got bigger fish to fry - literally! We're

Any news yet?
NORAD just tracked the ship reentering the
atmosphere! It doesn't look like a controlled
May God help Larry King and #86/68!
Wait, NORAD has just informed me they've picked up two
parachutes! It's #86/68 and Larry King!
Well Larry, I'd say we came from behind and won this game!
We sure did! It was a true pleasure to work with you,
#86/68! You'll have to come on my show soon.
Later that day in the Oval Office...
#86/68 and Larry King, this nation owes you its
thanks. You've put a stop to the Cuban Space Program
and helped insure that outer space belongs to
democracy! I can't tell you how grateful I and the
rest of America are!
All in a day's work, Mr. President! All in a day's
