The plot would've had Billy Hayes's girlfriend, Susan, taking him to a western place to find Billy's father, as well as going to an imaginary place called Cloud Cuckoo Land, where a unicorn/cat hybrid (UniKitty) lived.
Then, some aliens invaded the world, one of them kidnapping Billy's friends, Susan, Max, Erich, and the other prisoners, and Billy would rescue them.
