From the VHS box cover:

It’s official. Gallagher, America’s most outrageous comic has gone Melon Crazy!

The first warning sign of Melon Craziness is a tendency to collect strange “melonabilia” like huge thirty foot watermelons, watermelon blimps, or three-piece watermelon suits. (And other very strange piece of melon matter.)

The second warning sign is a tendency to hang around with other crazy people like special guest comic Bill Kirchenbauer (Tony Roletti of Fernwood Tonight) who does impressions of xerox machines.

Jim (The Head) is an animated mutant super-hero with an insanely large cranium. A freak encounter left him with a problem. A big one: he’s got an alien named Roy living inside his oversized dome. Plus, he’s got the added headache of having to deal with an impending invasion of Earth by a fiendish army of evil parasitic aliens.

Jim and Roy are feverishly assembling the Anti-Invasion Machine, whose five pieces have been scattered throughout the world. Will Jim and his skull-dwelling companion have the skill to save the Earth? Only The Head knows.
