Packages From Planet X
Disney XD

Despite what the title seems to imply, Packages from Planet X is not a kid-friendly version of Futurama. Instead, the series follows an ordinary teen named Dan whose world is turned upside down when he suddenly starts receiving mysterious bundles from an unknown sender. Each one contains a kooky gadget — a literal “chick magnet,” an “agua freako” capsule perfect for dealing with bullies — that launches a new adventure for Dan and his pals.

Get a feel for the show — created by American Greetings Properties, the same company behind the Care Bears and Strawberry Shortcake — in the clip below, which shows what happens when Dan uses a “space mixer” to whip up a quick batch of something tasty. Unfortunately, the machine has other plans…

Set your space watches: Packages from Planet X debuts in the U.S. this Saturday, July 13 at 8:30 a.m. PT on Disney XD.
