Harry Highpants lives in a town where people wear their pants at different heights. Harry Highpants goes super high. Carl the builder goes ridiculously low.

This Is until Roy Bland arrives in town, and runs for mayor on the platform of demanding pants be worn at ‘normal height’. A protest movement mobilises, a coming together of the low panters and the high panters at the Free Pants Convention. Eventually, in the tense standoff between the free panters and Bland’s pants fascists, Harry Highpants delivers an address that secures his status as a pants champion.
