When I was young (in the 90's or so), I had a random VHS tape of a movie that really confused me. It could have been a mini-series because it seemed like it had some references to other things in flash back that had to do with the weird story. I don't think it was a Disney movie or anything.

The strange story:

  • Two young adult/teenage kids were on a spaceship, a guy and and girl.

  • They had to take care of large alien eggs for some reason

  • The eggs hatched at some point

  • The guy and girl have to teach the adorable alien babies the alphabet or something with large foam cut outs of letters (I didn't understand that point at all)

  • Somehow they have to evacuate the ship and use the letters to somehow move the alien babies (still sitting in their egg shells)

  • In another plot, a black guy gets stuck in some sort of inter-dimensional junkyard and has to repair some sort of thing like a suit or ship. Then some off-screen thing comes and hurts him more.

  • In a weird flashback sequence, the guy from the ship has to run through a strange forest to get somewhere because some old lady told him to

  • The black guy chases him and then gets trapped in the inter-dimensional junk yard

And that's basically all I remember.

    Do you remember if it was originally in English, or could if have been dubbed?

  • It could have been dubbed, but I think I remember it being English Commented Nov 6, 2014 at 12:43
  • This feels very, vaguely familiar. Can you recall what the aliens looked like? How big/small were they? What country were you in where you found this video?

  • The aliens were big about as tall as the people, with big, cute eyes. I was in an asian country, I don't remember how I got the VHS tape Commented Nov 17, 2014 at 12:30

Could this be part of the Josh Kirby… Time Warrior! series?

I've been going crazy trying to find it and it might match your story.

    What about this series do you think matches the description?
