Plot and Storyline Edit
The show was about a trio of babies who fight off evil monsters and aliens. Their names were Meg, Derrick and Buck and their care-giver's name was Nurse Lazlo. The show takes place in Your City, USA.
To describe them, Meg was cranky and stuck-up about everyone's behavior, Bucky was shy (also the youngest of the trio), a bit slower in the head than the rest and funny, Derrick was standoffish (Derrick also had a tendency to argue with Meg) and a bit of a showoff and all of them loved strudel and nurse Lazlo.
After their birth, they were brought to an orphanage, where them and their nurse were struck by lightning from outer space, when the entire solar system aligned itself. The babies were given super strength and super booger , poopie and vomiting powers and Nurse Lazlo's IQ flew off the charts.
The show uses a lot of gross-out humor based on snot, vomit, flatulence, drool, and various other bodily fluids coming from the cast. This has become the basis of the show, as the babies often use this, combined with their own amazing strength, to save the city.
