Life at Space Academy for a diverse group of kids who get into all sorts of trouble including: Hakata Soy (former space hero), Senor Panda (Spanish teacher who isn't what he appears to be), Doug Hiro (whose only goal is to walk in space), and rich-brat Maribelle Mellonbelly (who has it in for Hakata). There are dinosaur races, tough bunnies, robots, and more. This series is chock full of characters, adventure, mystery, and puns galore.
