The characters of the television show 'The Tomorrow People' were normal looking, every-day kids on the outside, just like the audience that it was targeted to and watching it. But secretly they had fantastic super-powers. The most interesting of which was the ability to teleport, or 'jaunt' as they called it, anywhere in the world, even into outer space and to distant planets. Tomorrow People would begin as normal humans until their special powers, including telepathic, would manifest themselves and they would 'break-out'.

An alien spacecraft arrives in orbit around the Earth and one of the aliens descends to Earth in search of food. Unfortunately these aliens have a rather limited understanding of the culture of Earth, and so their presence and their desires causes complications that must be dealt with by the Tomorrow People.

They have learned English through the watching of western movies, talking and acting as one would in an old fashioned western. This is the bases for their trouble on earth.

In one scene we have Momma (
Margaret Burton) and Emily (Sandra Dickinson) entering Johns (Nicholas Young) room. Emily is subsequently turned over Johns knee and spanked on the back of her pants three times with his hand.

My Scenario:

On the spaceship that the UFO aliens have flown to earth. John is a human from earth and has been teleported up to the space ship. He has been selected to be Emily's mate. He is in the dinning area. Momma and Emily, two of the three aliens stand in the doorway, after John pushes the button to open it.

Emily is the first to speak. "John, you've been very bad."

John is standing just inside the main entrance. "Shut up Emily. Alright you two come with me."

As Momma and Emily start to enter the cabin. "John my boy, what are you doin' running around like a Texas goodon? Taint good breading." Momma stiffens.

As they walk across the cabin, John turns to face them. "

Momma and John are looking at each other face to face. Their faces only inches apart. "Shut up you old boot."

She turns away and gasps at what he said to her. John looks at Emily, with her mouth wide open. "Emily from you I want some refreshments."

Emily. In astonishment looks at John. "What?" He replies. "You heard me, I want some think to eat and to drink."

Emily shakes her head from side to side. Momma is still gasping at the way John is talking to them. "But I can't do that, I'm a lady. I can't wait on a man. It ain't ever been done."

She points to herself while she is saying this. She then looks to Momma. She's flabbergasted that she should be ordered about like this. "Well come on, I'm waiting. Do you want a spanking."

Emily looks at Momma. "Momma, do something. Tickle him for me."

Momma puts her finger into a wrist control on her wrist. She's going to use the control to tickle him and stop it. Emily then starts to beat her fists on Johns chest. "Alright young lady, I think it was time you where taught a lesson."

John then grabs Emily by the wrist and pulls her over to a chair. He sits down and turns her over his knee. She looks back at the other woman. "Momma, do something."

John then pulls down Emily's stretch shorts and bares her backside. "John, no what are you doing."

He puts his left hand over her waist, holding her firmly over his knee. "Young lady, If I'm to be your husband, then you're going to learn that I will be obeyed."

He looks to Momma. "You over on that table is a hairbrush. Fetch it."

Momma has gotten all excited and is looking around quickly. Not understanding whats about to happen. He then swats Emily's backside with his hand. Swat. "OOOOOO."

He points to the hairbrush. "Unless you want a taste of what I'm going to give to Emily, you'll fetch the hairbrush."

Momma looks at the hairbrush and then back down to Emily. She turns and gets the hairbrush. "Momma, no, stop this."

Once John has the hairbrush, Emily's troubles really begins.

Crack. "Yeeeeeeowch."
Crack. "Yeeeeeeowch. Oh my this isn't right." Crack. "Yeeeeeeowch." Crack. "Yeeeeeeowch. I'm a lady, you can't do this to me." Crack. "Yeeeeeeowch." Crack. "Yeeeeeeowch."

John is tanning Emily's backside and she is blubbering, like she's never blubbered before. Never in her entire life has she even heard of a spanking. Let alone received on. For her people don't spank one another. They tickle them.

Crack. "Yeeeeeeowch." Crack. "Yeeeeeeowch." Crack. "Yeeeeeeowch." Crack. "Yeeeeeeowch."

John lets go of Emily and she gets up off his knee, still crying. Pulling up her tight stretch shorts. Momma turns away from him and crosses her arms. "Alright, I want some answers. Where are you from and where are you going."

She doesn't answer him. He shakes the hairbrush in his face. "Tell me or I'll give you a spanking, just like Emily just got."

She then tells him everything he wants to know. She can't take her eyes off the hair brush.
