Alien Species

"Joe", a Jovian befriended by Larry Dart, Husky and Slim.

The Jovians are a sapient species of robust yet timid creatures which inhabit the misty swamps of Jupiter. Their technology level appears to be low at best and non-existent at worst, but they are a friendly, resourceful people and have been known to assist the United Galactic Organization representatives from Earth, Mars and Venus on the Jovian outposts.

The Jovian body is almost spherical, supported by a pair of short legs and much longer arms. From there sprouts a long neck that seems to be made of two independent tubular structures twisted around each other. Their heads are roundish and chin-less, with faces dominated by huge eyes. They have the strange ability to turn their heads around in a 360 degrees angle multiple times over.
