After Dan slaps on an alien neck brace package in order to dodge a father-and-son fishing competition, he discovers that the neck brace is an aqua gill that allows him to only breath underwater and talk like a fish, and that Copernicus is plotting to unleash a monstrous mutated bottom feeder on the citizens of Iron Bay.

In order to dodge a weekend homework assignment and save Troll's family reputation, Dan uses an alien re-animator package to bring the legendary Iron Bay Mermoo back to life. Things seriously misfire for Dan after he misuses the package, resurrecting all kinds of bizarre marine oddities and turning their after-school outing into a crazy night at the Iron Bay Marine Museum. In addition, the more things Dan re-animates, the more he de-animates himself, making his body very weak in the process.

Amanda is stoked to reunite with Uncle Rory's old lab partners, and Dan gets his mitts on a pair of gloves that can diagnose and repair anything he lays his hands on. Unfortunately for Dan, the downside of the Healer Feelers package is the rapid aging. Things take a turn for the worst when Dan, Amanda, Troll, and the scientists all get captured by Copernicus, who plans to drop a Cocoon X-Bomb on Iron Bay. After our trio teams up with the scientists to free themselves, dismantle the bomb, and defeat Copernicus's plan, Dan learns that he can never get too old to make a difference.

Part 1: Tired of Copernicus constantly ruining his fun with the packages, Dan concocts a plan to get him recalled to Planet X. The plan works, but instead of freeing Dan for nonstop fun, it leads Copernicus’s bosses to send a much more competent alien named Xanthicus to take his place. Xanthicus takes over Dan’s dad’s body and begins cocooning the town with brutal efficiency. When Dan’s efforts to extract the alien from his dad fail Dan realizes he has no choice but to travel to Planet X in order to get the only device that can free his father and save the town. Meanwhile, Calimary is all alone without Copernicus, and Xanthicus refuses to take her in.

Part 2: Dan and Amanda travel through a portal to Planet X in search of an Extractor to rid the alien Xanthicus from Dan’s dad, while Troll stays behind and teams up with his new friend Calimary to try to stop the alien from cocooning all of Iron Bay. All three teens however end up captured in their own ways, with Dan and Amanda being imprisoned on Planet X and threatened with having their brains eaten by alien gourmands, and Troll being tied to a chair at his family's warehouse by Xanthicus in preparation to be cocooned. On Dan and Amanda's end, they realize their only hope may lie in teaming up with Copernicus and exposing the truth on how Dan got the packages, but can the creepy alien and his overlords be trusted?

Originally planned as a feature film, the idea of the series came from Jeff Harter after several weeks of research and revisiting what he liked as a 10 year old kid: Sci-fi, comic books, superheroes, robots, space ships, aliens, monsters, and anything to do with Outer Space. The idea of where the packages came from on Planet X was one of those old novelty toy ads he noticed.[21]

The series received a mixed reception. Joyce Slaton of Common Sense Media described the series as an iffy, fast-paced animated series, with "rude humor" and "alien gadgets" coupled with cartoon violence. She further argued that some young children might be "intimidated or overstimulated by the fast pace."[22]
