Dimwitted Martians drop into a little Illinois town on the day that the local radio station happens to rebroadcast Orson Welles 1938 "War Of The Worlds".
The actors performing as the Martians were virtually blind when the Martian heads were in place, so they had to be talked through their actions.

Enforcer Drone: I'm listening.
Blaznee: I thought this was a bad idea.

In the opening scene, when Sherrif Hoxley is getting a bottle of soda pop out of the machine and talking to Russell on his radio, reflected in the window over the machine are two rather-tall palm trees, trees which are not native to Big Bean, Illinois.
