|Kosmic Karl, Defender of the
Universe (Andrew Barrus)
is ready to take on the world's problems in his tights and cape. If
only he had Super Powers! Of course, getting his memory back and falling
in love would be nice too.
Karl has lost his memory and
spends his time with his state appointed psychiatrist.
Unaware of any real cosmic super powers,
his spare time is spent in acts of unsuccessful heroism resulting
in a series of humorous failures, encounters with police and a less
than completely successful escape from a mental hospital.
Through his successes and failures,
he finds love only to lose it and later come to the conclusion that
the problems in the world are too big for one person to solve. A
delightfully funny comedy suitable for the whole family.
