— Fanboy believing the girls are aliens

Face-Eating Aliens From Planet X is episode 21b of Fanboy and Chum Chum season 2.

Yo is throwing a slumber party at her house, but Fanboy and Chum Chum are not invited because it's a girls only sleepover. Fanboy begins to believe that the girls are actually aliens who are planning to eat their faces, so he and Chum Chum go to the party disguised as girls to get proof.


Fanboy and Chum Chum were sitting in school one afternoon, reading a "Face-Eating Aliens From Planet X" comic. After reading, Fanboy tells Chum Chum if the comic is to be believed, there are Face-Eating Aliens everywhere. Chum Chum adds they look exactly like everyone else, and the only way to recognize them is by their horrible screech. At that moment, Yo comes by them and asks them to pass pink notes to every girl in the class, but not to read them, as they're for girls only. They do exactly that, and the bell rings as everyone leaves.

De-girlified invatation

Invatation to Yo's slumber party.

Fanboy and Chum Chum don't care about what's in the notes, but then they see they dropped one on the ground and wonder what's inside. Just as Fanboy opens it, the note releases girl cuteness, resulting in forming a rainbow and shining a huge bright light which blinds F&C. Lucky, Fanboy de-girlifys the note and reads it. The note says there's a slumber party at Yo's house on Saturday night at 7:00 PM, and no boys are allowed. Chum Chum knows it's just a dumb old slumber party with a bunch of girls and wonders why it has to be a secret.

Fanboy's mood suddenly changes to shock and he begins to think they're not girls, but Face-Eating Aliens from Planet X. Chum Chum is surprised that he coughs up glitter stating he sucked in some. Fanboy gestures to the girls jumping rope, thinking they're making a wormhole back to Planet X so they can have their Evil Alien Banquet where the main course is face. Chum Chum is horrified and wants to warn the other boys, but Fanboy knows they won't believe them. He says they have to get proof and knows just how to do it.

"Fandrea" and "Chumbelina" smiling

Chum Chum as "Chumbelina Jolie" and Fanboy as "Fandrea".

The night of the sleepover finally arrives full-swing, and the girls are in Yo's room watching a horror movie when there's a knock at the door. Yo goes over to the door which slams open, revealing Fanboy and Chum Chum dressed as girls. Fanboy says they're random girls from West Apetown and are ready for the slumber party. Yo thinks they're weird, but there is something irresistibly cute about them. Fanboy introduces himself as "Fandrea" and Chum Chum calls himself "Chumbelina Jolie" and tosses glitter everywhere.

Chum Chum tells Fanboy the girls don't look like aliens, to which Fanboy states they're in disguise. That is the moment when Marsha barges in, horrifing F&C. Fanboy thinks Marsha is their Alien Queen, and Chum Chum knows she's gonna eat his face. After Marsha flames up some s'mores on a pitchfork, she notices F&C and tells them she didn't

The boys with Marsha, believed to be the "Alien Queen".

make their acquaintance. She says they smell like boys, and Fanboy, as Fandrea, says it's because he has been kissing boys, and Chum Chum as Chumbelina adds he'll kiss anyone. Fanboy begins thinking of boys like Duke, Chuggy and Fankylechum, and Marsha says she likes Fankylechum and wrote his name on her binder. Fanboy then corrects himself and says he meant to say "Man...Kyle...yum". This eventually snaps Marsha out of her mean attitude and she says Kyle is dreamy, too.

The girls begin to gather around Marsha and complement on Kyle. Fanboy as Fandrea says they should start with the cutest, which is Fanboy. The girls laugh, and Yo knows "Fandrea" likes him. After the girls complement on him, Marsha announces it's a party for girls and it's enough about boys. She announces they should play a game, and Lupe suggests Truth or Dare.

Enter "Tiffany"

Dollarnator as "Tiffany".

Fanboy says it's a perfect chance to reveal the truth that the girls are aliens, and calls Dollarnator, who will act as the best lie dector. Dollarnator then barges into the party as a girl and says he traveled back in time an extra half hour so his nails can dry. Everyone sits down to play Truth or Dare, and Fanboy warns everyone that Dollarnator (addressed as "Tiffany") is really good at the game, especially the "truth" part. Chum Chum adds if anyone is like Face-Eating Aliens from Planet X, Dollarnator will know. The girls are confused, then Dollarnator fires up his lie detector. Fanboy puts the lie detector to show that it's harmless, then asks for someone to ask him a truth. Francine asks him what did he do Friday night, and he says he went to a movie with his BFF, "Chumbelina". The detector says he's telling the truth, but Dollarnator says it's a true lie, and says "Fandrea" told him "she" was washing "her" hair which is why they couldn't hang out. Fanboy says he did wash his hair, but the detector shocks him, stating he was lying. After several lies and shocks, Dollarnator says he was at home by the phone waiting for them and they never dialed out. He says he was their "BFF" which stands for "Big Fat Phony". He immediately runs out of the room, crying as a result.

This is the part where they eat our faces!

The boys' disguises are revealed

F&C have been kissed s2e21b

The boys get kissed instead of losing their faces.

Fanboy calls out to Dollarnator he'll make up for it, and says next friday is "Tiffany-Day". The girls are upset at the fact that because they made "Tiffany" cry, they broke the Slumber Party Code and must pay with a pillow fight. Fanboy thinks this is a perfect moment to knock off the girls' "disguises" and prove once and for all they are dangerious, evil Face-Eating Aliens, but they should go easy on them as they're girls. But instead of the girls geting beaten up, F&C get themselves beaten up by the girls. Seconds after they get hit however, this makes their wigs fall off and Yo discovers that "Fandrea" and "Chumbelina" were only Fanboy and Chum Chum in disguise. Marsha adds that it's the only breech of slumber party protocol. Yo says they should be punished, and Fanboy thinks this is the part where their faces get eaten. The girls begin to close in on the boys but instead of their faces being munched off, they get kissed all over with red lipstick. They think it's even worse, and run out while the girls laugh.

After F&C leave Yo's house and scrub the kiss marks off, Fanboy is relieved to know that the girls are not aliens. Chum Chum agrees, then suggests they wash their makeup off.
We're Head-Eating Aliens

Is this true, or are the girls just messing with us?

Fanboy thinks for a moment, then he says his cousin is having a slumber party in West Apetown. The boys get thrilled, then head off.

As for the girls, alone once more, Francine is annoyed at the fact that F&C thought they were Face-Eating Aliens. Yo agrees with her, only to reveal they’re actually Head-Eating Aliens, and opens a fridge containing heads of the boys they know. Marsha says she likes Fankylechum, acts as if she were eating his head, and the scene immediately cuts to black.

  • Irony: Francine is annoyed the boys thought they were face-eating aliens, but Yo says they’re head-eating aliens, which includes the face.
  • Double irony: The girls could’ve just eaten the boys’ heads instead of kissed them, though this is done on purpose to avoid spoiling the end of the episode.
  • It’s unknown if the boys found out about the truth after this episode, and the girls were not seen as aliens since then.
  • Out of Fanboy’s claims in past episodes, this episode shows he’s actually right about the girls being aliens, though he’s wrong over what they eat.
  • The last time this episode (along with Heroes vs. Villains) aired on the main Nickelodeon Channel is March 22, 2015.


  • Third time Fanboy gets kissed by girls. The first time was in “Fanboyfriend“, and the second was in “Brain Freeze”. This is also the second time for Chum Chum, with the first being in “Brain Drain”.


  • After Fanboy says "My name's Fandrea" he has his hand on his heart and his eyes are closed, but during the pan shot to Chum Chum when he introduces himself as Chumbelina Jolie, Fanboy's pose immediately changes to normal standing position where his eyes are open and his hands are at his sides.
  • When the girls walk out of the classroom, we don't see them drop a pink note but later Fanboy says "Hey, they dropped one." Neither of the girls could've dropped any pink notes at all, because they hold their notes by their hands.
  • Closed caption errors:
    • Fanboy's girl name Fandrea is misspelled as "Vandrea".
    • Chum Chum's girl name Chumbelina Jolie is listed as "Chumbalina Jolly".

    • When Lupe says "That boy has problems" the captions say "That boy has brownum".
    • When Dollarnator says "I traveled back in time an extra half hour" the word "traveled" is listed as "travelled", indicating a spelling error.
  • In the credits, Fanboy and Chum Chum's girl counterparts Fandrea and Chumbelina were credited, despite this only being a disguise.
  • In this episode, Chum Chum was shown to be scared of Marsha. However, in "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha", he didn't mind her being mean and thought that her attitude wouldn't get her a gold star. It could be possible he's aware of her now.
  • When Yo goes over to the fridge to play out her alien allusion at the end, the girls don't have their lipstick on anymore, and when Yo acts as if she's an alien, her shirt doesn't have any sleeves.
  • Francine likes it when Kyle makes the sky dark and evilly, but in the previous episode, she was afraid of him. It's possible she started to like him sometime after the episode. It could also mean she was just acting scared.
  • Dollar-Nator says "BFF" stands for "Big Fat Phony," but "Phony" starts with P and not F.


  • The Man from Planet X- The title is a spoof of the film.
  • Chum Chum's girl name "Chumbelina Jolie" is a portmanteau of Thumbelina and Angelina Jolie.
  • Twilight - The movie about the vampire and zombie that the girls were watching when the sleepover was first seen is an obvious parody of this series of a romance between a human girl and a vampire hottie.
  • Justin Bieber - Whenever Fanboy and Chum Chum scream "BIEBER, BIEBER, BIEBER!" they are making a huge reference to this famous boy celebrity.
  • Aliens - Fanboy believes the girls were face-eating aliens, It is maybe a parody of the face-huggers from the movie franchise called "Aliens".
  • The Simpsons - The Girls as Aliens have got Green Tentacles, just like Kang And Kodos the aliens from the planet called Rigal 4.
  • Turbo A Power Rangers Movie - Marsha eats FanKyleChum's Head with her extended tongue. Just Like Divatox eats a fly with her extended tongue.
  • SpongeBob SquarePants - The ending is similar to the episode "The Secret Box". In that episode, SpongeBob thinks what's inside Patrick's secret box is an embarrassing photo of him at the Christmas party, and Patrick shows SpongeBob that all that's inside is a simple string. However, after SpongeBob leaves, Patrick reveals that SpongeBob didn't pull the string to open the secret compartment, which contains the embarassing Christmas photo of SpongeBob, which was actually one of his suggestions, but SpongeBob was unaware.
  • Tak and the Power of Juju - This episode is similar to the episode "Girls Only", where Tak uses the power of Juju to turn himself into a girl to see what the girls do in their secret club. The only difference in that episode is that Tak gets kicked out instead of being smooched when he gets discovered.
  • Godzilla - The music played when Marsha first appears parodies the theme to the monster's rampage.
  • 2 Stupid Dogs - Marsha devours FanKyleChum's Head, Just like the Witch from Hanzel and Gretel devours Little Red Riding Hood, Big Dog and Little Dog from the episode called "Red Strikes Back".
  • Men In Black 2 - Marsha devours FanKyleChum's Head, Just like Serleena devours the male Criminal.
  • Dude, Where's My Car? - Marsha devours FanKyleChum's Head, Just like Super Hot Giant Alien devours Tommy.
