The gravity in Jon's house becomes reversed by the arrival of Nimbus. Meanwhile, Eddie Gourmand wants Jon to illustrate a comic book.
The story begins as a small green alien is parading through outer space and needs to stop for rest break. Someone is talking with him on the phone and suggests that he stops at earth. The alien says that earth not very exciting yet reluctantly stops there anyway.
Meanwhile Garfield and Odie are relaxing in Jon's backyard waiting for him to come home. Garfield rushes inside and hears Jon's car pulling up the driveway. Garfield states that Jon just applied for a job as a cartoonist and that one can tell by the look on his face whether he did or not.
