Matt Phlatt, his cat Geoff and his fish Chips live in Flatworld, a city where everything is paper-thin.
Working on road construction, Matt accidentally cuts through a cable for the information superhighway. The ensuing surge opens portals to Flipside, a world decidedly different from his own, and releases a bank robber from a gangster film on TV. Suddenly, Matt and his pets become entangled with the thief and the police in a spectacular and hilarious chase that switches between Flatworld and Flipside. —BCDb
