When one can’t count on superheroes to save our planet from outerspace monsters, who do we turn to? That’s right! A pig head and a rice pot! Mcdull has no black masks or red underwear, and certainly not supernatural powers. He is just an ordinary boy growing up in a fishing village and dreaming of growing up to become an inventor.
One day, an outerspace monster invades the Earth and makes mincemeat of the superhero sent to meet him. So world leaders call on all citizens to design a super robot, to defeat the outerspace monster and save the Earth. Mcdull, who is scant of resources but plenty resourceful, starts fiddling with his mom’s household appliances. From a humble rice cooker, he designs a low-tech high-power robot: Risopot, and makes it to the final of the World Robot Design Competition. The whole fishing village is jubilant. To produce Risopot, everybody chips in, including the principal of the village school. And Mrs. Mak, Mcdull’s mom and the village fishball maker, works triple hard to meet the expenses. Risopot looks dumb and his functions are a joke. But with extraordinary tenacity and lots of dumb luck, he emerges the winner.
Now the responsibility of saving the Earth falls squarely on the shoulders of Mcdull and Risopot. The outerspace monster will be upon the Earth again any time soon. The world leaders are having summit meetings and seem to be up to something. The pig head and rice pot combo, still a laughing stock, can they really save our planet? And the outerspace monster, why does he time and again invade the Earth?
