Spider-Ham has been transported to the world of the Marvel babies by the Silver Burper. Only he can save the Fantastic Four Tots (Master Fantastic, Invisible Little Girl, Toddler Torch, and Sweet Thing) from the clutches of the ex-pediatrician known as Malpractus. But when the Li'l Avengers are captured it might be too much for Spider-Ham to handle.
