Younger versions of Cheech & Chong.

Chong: This is my spot on the sofa, man.
Cheech: I didn't say it wasn't.
Chong: My Spot, man. It's my spot. And that's my weed. Gimme back my weed.
Cheech: Uh, uh, man. You'll have to get off... your spot!

A superintelligent alien travels time and space saving humanity(and other species) from utter destruction. Unfortunately he's also cursed(possibly literally) with a profound speech impediment and nobody understands a word he says.
Stay tuned for Doctor What?!
