A laugh riot that's great fun for the cast and the audience. The tiny island of Lilliput, where most of the population consists of teenagers, is about to collapse. There is no economy. So the feisty ruler, Queen Oona, decides to turn management over to a Hollywood film studio. She hopes its crude but successful methods will save Lilliput. Alas, the ambassador contracts the wrong studio. It's a sleazy television outfit headed by Hazel and Larry. Their current project is a doomed pilot called "The Beverly Billygoats." They move quickly to Lilliput where they won't have to pay rent and can use the locals for actors! When a yacht crashes on a reef with a rock singer named Beef Burgundy and his back-up singers, Linda and Ann-Marie, Larry hits on a scheme he thinks will bring in publicity and tourists. He will tell the world Elvis Presley is alive and living on Lilliput! One uproarious mishap collides with another until your audience is weak with laughter.
