Following another typical day at school, Mike and Katy are riding home on their bicycles when something goes whizzing over their heads in the darkening sky above. When they check out where this thing landed, they meet up with seemingly cute aliens. Mike and Katy soon change their opinion when they realize the aliens will happily tickle them to the point of collapse -- and they are doing it to take over the planet. Luckily, Mike and Katy have a plan. With the help of their not-so-boring principal, Mr. Watkins, they manage to save their town from the Ticklers.
