Ians Not So Boring Life: The Alleged Series was Ian McCormick's response to Brianne which reused footage of TUGS and Ian's Not So Boring Life. It is established that after 5 years Ian comes back to Earth realizing that he wants revenge on all those here that made his life hell. This is the Series that properly introduced TUGS to America though on Cartoon Network the TUGS segments were redubbed fit for American Audiences though when aired on Comedy Central the UK Version is left untouched. The Show also had creations of TUGS used by Models made by Ian McCormick.
