Homeboys in Outer Space

Homeboys in Outer Space is a science fiction sitcom that aired on UPN from 1996 to 1997. The short lived series starred comedian Flex and Darryl Bell.


The plot centered around an odd couple-type pairing of two space cargo haulers, Tyberius "Ty" Walker (Flex) and Morris Clay (Bell), who flew around the universe in a winged car in the 23rd century. The duo's car, which was a cross between a lowrider and an 18 wheeler, was piloted by a talking female computer named Loquatia. The show was intended as a parody of science fiction shows such as Star Trek.

The series was panned by critics and cited as promoting racial stereotypes. Homeboys in Outer Space was cancelled in 1997 after 21 episodes.
