Our story began on a starry night in a backyard of a house. As a shooting star flew across the midnight sky and the full moon shone bright, a male voice off-screen was heard singing.
Male Voice VO: I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly
It was the Summer of the year 2000 and in the backyard, a 6 year old girl was seen playing basketball. She was a black-haired girl with brown eyes, wearing a black t-shirt, red pants, and green sneakers on. Her name was Subuku no Jess, or Jessy for short. She kept shooting hoops for some time now, occasionally stopping to draw in her sketch book.
Suddenly, the lights turned on and a boy was looking at Jessy from inside the back porch. He was a fifteen-year-old with spiky brown hair. He was wearing black fingerless gloves, a black short-sleeved jacket with a hood with dark gray shoulder guards over what looked like a midnight blue shirt with red hoody-like pockets on the front of his shirt, along with a black belt, and big black baggy yet short pants, and big yellow and black shoes. The big pockets on his pants were red. There were also two yellow intersecting diagonal straps across his lower body. His name was Sora, Jessy's adopted older brother. Sora looked quizically at Jessy as she threw the ball and made a shot once more.
"Jessy?" Jessy turned around and stopped, looking at Sora. Sora got out of the porch and approached her in confusion.
"What are you doing out here, Jessy? It's after midnight." He told her. Jessy looked down and shrugged, holding the ball.
"I couldn't sleep..." She replied.
"Well, neither can Kairi and I with all that noise you're making." Sora said, thinking about his girlfriend sleeping with him. He smiled and turned his head back to the house, "C'mon. Let's go inside."
Jessy sighed sadly, wanting to play some more. "Just one more shot?" She asked her adopted brother pleadingly. Sora smiled and nodded.
"All right. Just one." Jessy smiled softly and started to shoot some hoops again. Sora walked near to where the basket was and sat down. He caught the basketball as it went through the net.
"That's good. Shoot it again. Better yet, shoot till you miss." He said and gave the ball back to Jessy. After much shooting and a few misses, the black-haired girl panted and sat down next to Sora. Sora looked down and found Jessy's sketch book.
"What's this?" He asked and picked up the book. He flipped it open and looked at all the drawings that Jessy drew. Some drawings were of him, Kairi, and his friend Riku. Most of them were of Jessy's dreams and stories that she would create.
The one drawing that really caught his attention was a page entitled "The Basketball Dream". It was a drawing of five basketball members wearing black-and-red jerseys. They looked like monsters. At the bottom of the drawing was a picture of Jessy with wings on her back and she was doing a slam dunk. Sora smiled at this and pointed to the picture. Jessy looked and saw what he was pointing at.
"Oh yeah. That's the basketball dream I had. See those monster players?" She said as she pointed to each of the players, "This one is Big Claws. That one is Spider-Guy. The rest are Alien Leaf, Lantern Head, and Gambler. They are a group of monsters who were forced to be in an evil basketball team and I get to-" She stopped suddenly and sighed. She grabbed the notebook from Sora's hands and ripped the page out, sending it flying in the air.
"Why did you do that?" Sora cried out, "I liked it."
"I don't know. I just don't think that I have what it takes to get good enough and graduate school." Jessy said sadly.
"Jessy, if you get good enough, you can do anything you want. I believe in you." Sora said, picking himself and Jessy up from the ground.
"Well, I always wanted to play at North Carolina." She admitted.
"That's a fine school. You can get a first-class education there." Sora explained, approving of the idea.
"I want to play on a championship team. Then I want to play in the NBA!" Jessy cheered as she picked up the ball and jumped around happily. Sora laughed warmly at that.
"All right, let's slow down. Shouldn't you get some sleep first?" He asked. Jessy nodded.
"Once I've done all that," She said smiling, "I want to play baseball and beat up heartless, just like you." She gave Sora a big hug. Sora hugged back.
"Baseball. Now that's a sport!" He patted her on the back and started heading to the house. "And when you've done that, I suppose you're going to fly, huh?"
Jessy stopped when Sora said that and turned back to the basketball hoop before her, looking at it for a while. She ran towards the hoop, dribbling in slow-motion. Clips of present NBA basketball players are shown as Jess jumped into the air and dived to the hoop. She made a slam dunk as the title of the parody came up.

10 years later...
The date is the beginning of Summer 2010 and Jessy had now grew up to be an average-sized teenager. She had the same outfit as she had when she was 6, except that she wore a purple jacket and red baseball cap on top of it. Over the last 10 years, she had entered school and got a good education. Recently, she was one of the leading basketball players for her school team and the first female youth rookie to be in the NBA. She was a fan favorite and she was now presenting herself to a crowd of reporters, about to say an announcement.
"At this time, I've reached the pinnacle of my basketball career and must retire." Jessy said. Most of the people gasped as some took pictures of the girl. She continued, "The one good thing about it is that my brother, Sora, had the opportunity to see me play my last game before he married and moved out to another country. That means a lot."
"What are you going to do now?" A photographer with brown hair named Peter Parker asked.
"Well, I never really told anyone this, except for one person, but I'm going to play professional baseball." Jessy answered, wiping her forehead. Many people asked her many questions as she responded the best she can.
Meanwhile, in Outerspace...
Somewhere passed the Earth's moon and near the planet Saturn, a large meteor was seen. On its surface was an alien/monster themepark called 'Moron Underworld', where monsters and aliens alike can harm each other and go on life-threatening rides.
At the amusement park, one of the rides broke down and a car flew into the air before landing hard onto the floor. In the car were a red, muscular dragon named Jake Long and his two human friends named Trixie and Spud. Jake and Spud cheered in excitement as Trixie stepped out of the car, annoyed.
"Let's get out of here, guys!" Trixie said, "This ride stinks! Don't bring me anymore, okay?" Her words were replayed on a camera at the main office of the amusement park owner. The owner was a tall immortal man. He had blue skin, flaming blue hair, and wore an extremly long, black robe with what looked like a skull broche on the neck-collar. He was Hades, God of the underworld. He was sitting at his desk, watching the scene as his two devil henchmen named Pain and Panic gave their master a manicure.
"Are you listening?" Hades screamed as he turned red in anger. Five figures came to his side.
One was a small, male green insect (for now) that came from Halloween Town. His name was Oogie Boogie.
The second one was a very small yellow-green flytrap with big lips and it was in an orange flower pot. It was called Audrey Two.
The third one was a human body dressed in purple gloves and boots, white shirt-like blouse, along with a light indigo/bluish hat and pants with a pumpkin carved face for a head. His name was Jack o' Lantern.
The fourth one was an Irken who had a flat head, a pair of pink eyes, green skin, two black antennas, and who wore a purple triangular sweater and a silver back-pack. His name was Zim.
The last one was a sand-colored tanuki with dark blue markings all over its face, body, and tail, and had a jagged, concave mouth. The sclera of its eyes were black, containing yellow irides with pupils that each took the shape of a black four-pointed star with four black dots around it. His name was Shukaku. All five of the figures were as small as house pets and they rushed over to Hades.
"Did you hear her? DID you HEAR her?" Hades asked angrily as he pointed to Trixie on the webcam. "That little brat is right. I told you, if I told you once, I told you a thousand, thousand, thousand, THOUSAND times! We need new attractions! New ones!"
At the last 'THOUSAND', Hades' body turned completely red and the temperature of the room went up. No one liked Hades when he was mad.
"Right!" Everyone nodded and went to calm Hades down. Pain and Panic kept doing the manicure, Audrey II and Shukaku did the pedicure, Zim lit up a cigar, and Jack and Oogie took notes.
"Get it?" Hades said as he turned to Pain, Panic, and Jack. They nodded.
"Yeah... big, shiny new things." Jack stated.
"Absolutely, sir!" Panic saluted. Hades took the cigar from Zim and put it in his mouth.
"Look, look at me and listen!" He demanded, putting his hand on fire and reaching out for his nearest henchmen to burn. "The customer is always right!" He touched Oogie, causing Oogie to burn and run across the room. The rest saluted and nodded.
"Right!" Everyone agreed.
"The customer is always right!" Hades reassured his theme park motto.
"Exactly boss!" Pain said. Hades calmed down, turning blue again and he smiled evilly.
"Always..." He sneered, green slime coming out of his mouth. The green slime dropped onto Zim's head in annoyance. Everyone said right. Hades got up from his chair and paced around, hitting Shukaku square in the face while doing so.
"Okay, we need something. We need something... nutty!" The god of the underworld muttered loudly, hitting Zim and Oogie against the wall as he walked back into his chair to think up a way to get new customers for his theme park.
"Nutty? Now who do we know who's nutty?" Jack said to the others, thinking as well. Hades sat down on his chair, unware that he was sitting on the remote control for the camera, causing it to change the channel.
"We need something wacky!" Hades exclaimed, "Not too crazy. Something with action, comedy, romance, and drama." As he said this, the little monsters turned to the big camera screen and gazed at it. "We need something... something..."
"Something looney?" Shukaku suggested, but then stopped when he interrupted his master, "Oops!"
"Nah, looney sounds perfect to me." Jack replied, staring at the big screen. Hades stopped ranting for ideas and stared at all of his minions.
"Looney?" He turned to the screen and gasped a bit. On the screen were funny and action clips of TV shows and movies that were shown on Cartoon Network, Disney Channel, and Nickelodeon. Some of them included episodes of The Penguins of Madagascar, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Tom & Jerry, Phineas & Ferb, and mostly a movie everyone almost knows about called Van Helsing.
Hades suddenly smiled and had an idea. Maybe those characters on TV could bring him the entertainment he needed to run Moron Underworld. He laughed, "Looney! Looney! That's it! That's the word I was looking for!" Shukaku was pleased that he gave his master the idea, so he jumped with joy.
"Get me all of those toons! Bring them here!" Hades demanded as all of the five members cheered with evil glee. Zim raised his hand, which caused Hades to groan.
"Um boss, I'm just noticing this, but those freaky things are from the planet I wish to dominate; Earth. What if they can't come?" Zim asked. Hades glared at him, causing everyone to back away.
"What did you just say? What if they can't come?" Hades yelled. He grabbed Zim by the neck and shoved him close to his fiery face.
"Make them..." He sneered. Zim coughed and gagged.
"Yes sir..." The Irken choked before Hades let him go and laughed evilly. Everyone in the room joined in on the evil laughter. They were going to plan and capture the toons on Earth.
