This good character is a hero.

Jeff Sherman is a character created by Kiki. He appeared in the episode "The Tale of the Unexpected Visitor".


Jeff Sherman and his best friend Perch, wanted to start their own rock band. Late one evening after rehearsing, his parent's still weren't home yet, therefore he saw it as the perfect opportunity for he and Perch to sneak to his Dad's computer lab in the basement. His Dad was a computer genius. One who worked with the satellite system in the sky. His dad tried to communicate through every satellite in the world and possibly Outer Space. Now he attempted to hack into the system to intercept a satellite at a radio station. He wanted to get him and Perch free tickets to a concert for their favorite band World War Four.

After finishing, Perch asked him what the Peabody Project was. He told him not to mess with it. Since it was his dad top secret project on deep space communication. The project was to attempt to contact other planets. In order to see if there is any signs of life on them, by seeing if they'll answer back. Then his little brother Bobby called to them. He got worried, so he went to check on him. Bobby promised not to tell their parents, that they were in the basement. In exchange for a banana split with all the works.

While making this for him, Perch's curiosity got the best of him. So he opened the Peabody project program. Then Perch typed in co-ordinance 456610237 to a random planet. Then Perch sent a high note musical message. Perch immediately got a reply. It was a full blast message, in the form of a low note musical message.

Hearing it, he hurried downstairs to check on Perch. he was mad to see that he used the program when he told him not to. Perch was worried and shocked. He informed him that he actually made a call to another planet. Then he got an answer back. So now Perch was worried that they would come to Earth. He was more worried about shutting the computers down, before his parents got home. Just as he shuts them down, his parents came home, and they seemed a little concerned. At first he thought they knew that he and Perch went into the computer lab. But they were just concerned, that he fed his little brother ice cream, before his bedtime. So he promised not to do it again.

The next day he and Perch debated over what kind of songs to write about. He suggested a love song. Then Perch reminded him that he had never been in love before. So it is not real if it's just made up. Perch wanted to write about being free traveling around on the open road. But Perch had never left the city. Except going to his Aunt's for Thanksgiving. So his experiences weren't real either.

When he and Perch got to his house they meet with his Mom. She was on her way out to meet his Dad at a business banquet. Then she told him that Montana (his dog) was missing and to look for him. Later that night he, Perch and Bobby all went to look for the dog. He told Bobby to stay right by home playing tee-ball. In case he comes back home. Then he won't go missing again. Then he and Perch searched for the dog deeper into the woods.

In a deeper part of the woods, they found Montana's chew toy. Now they suspect he might be close by. They walk a little further, until they hear strange noises. He called out Montana. Then something almost perfectly blurted a mimic of his voice. This happened again when he called out who is there, and that's not funny man.

When he and Perch turned around to run off, they noticed a light spider web. It freaked them out. Then they hear a sound and looked to the side. A metal sliding space ship door appears. It played the same low note musical message, from the reply message. The one that Perch got from the night before. He pressed the button and the door opened. Then a bright flashing yellow light glowed out of it. It shined brightly in their faces. Then he threw in the football. Then something unknown from inside threw it back out to him.

They ran of scared, and realized his Dad was home. Panicked, he and Perch ran down to the computer lab. They tried to tell his dad, that they contacted an Alien. However no one was there. Instead all the computers on the work lab were left on. He knew that his dad never leaves them on. Unless he runs off to mention a discovery. Or a big breakthrough. They looked at the main computer, and found out that Perch sent a message clear across the galaxy. So now the planet that was contacted has replied back with five messages. They realize the alien has come to Earth. Worried, He phoned his dad.

However, he had trouble getting through to his dad on the phone. Then suddenly an incoming message popped up on the computer. It informed him that another alien was on its way to Earth. Perch was looking for Bobby outside. So he ran off terrified to find him. He tried to tell Perch that another one was coming, and possibly an invasion. All he found was a huge burned spider web. He realized that Perch got captured in it.

So he ran over to the spaceship door. Then he slowly entered the light. Now he found himself inside a spaceship. There he found Montana, Bobby and Perch trapped in air tight unbreakable tubes. Losing air, Perch weakly told him that the alien communicated in every way with music and sound. So a high note might open the tubes. So he ran back to his house, and he tape recorded a very high musical note.

When he hurried back to the ship, he mistakenly ran backwards into a light web. He was able to escape by pulling off his jacket. Then he ran off as the low note musical message was heard again. He made it back inside the spaceship. Then he played the high musical note. This released Montana, Bobby and Perch from the tubes. They all ran out of the ship and they are cornered by Light webs. They were all around them as the low note musical message was heard once again. Then the alien closed in on them. Then in a huge flashing light it vanished.

Then suddenly his brother pointed out two Light Aliens. He and the others just stared in shock and horror. The taller one eventually figured that they spoke English. Nervously he asked them what they wanted. Turned out the taller one was the shorter alien's mother. She just came to Earth to take her son home. She explained that her son came to earth, when he heard the high note musical message that Perch sent.

The message Perch sent the Light Alien boy just happened to mean in their language "We are toys". So her son came to play with them. Also the low note message the Alien Child kept making means in there language "I have come to play". The mother Alien apologized nicely. She told them not to think poorly of her son, he just wanted to play with them. Then she and her son returned to their spaceship and vanished. He and the others went back to the house. They were shocked and scared; but safe and sound.

He and Perch never got in trouble because his Dad was just so grateful and happy that the Peabody Project actually worked. As for their songwriting, based on their incredible and recent experience together, they finally had something interesting to write a song about. So they wrote their first song. Then using the Peabody program, they sent it playing full blast into Outer Space. The song played to any Aliens in Outer Space who were listening, a repeating chorus that went "WE ARE NOT TOYS!, WE ARE NOT TOYS! WE ARE NOT TOYS!".
