Defective Inspector: A Stitch in Time
The Defectors present the next chapter in the theatrical saga of eccentric ex-detective Richard P. Cooper, who now finds himself sucked into a time-bending sci-fi caper! In a trip to the future, he learns about the horrors of an evil empire founded by his canine nemesis, Mr. Fluffington. Richard and his allies must go on a mission to the past to prevent its uprising, which culminates in an epic kerfuffle spanning thousands of years as Richard and Fluffington tussle in the Time-Tangle, with the fate of all of history at stake!
