Double Trouble! Barton and Nancy Jamison are just regular kids. That is until alien clones land in their hometown of Pine Bluff. Now there are two Barts and two Nancys! So what do the kids decided them to do? Use them to do chores. But (and this is a really big but), the alien clones, Beta and Gamma, have a totally wacky take on earth life. Whenever they’re around, something always gets messed up.
Beta thinks the living room is alive and feeds the furniture and mows the carpet. And when the alien plays baseball for Barton, watch out. When Coach tells Beta to tear up the base, he… well…you guessed it. He shreds second base. And when he tells the clone to run home, the clone’s a little confused. After all, Beta’s home is on Ungapotch a million trillion light years away.
