Plot

Two years after the events of the first film, Comet (Zack Shada), a tech-savvy young chimp, wants to be taken seriously as a full-fledged space chimp, but Ham (Tom Kenny), Luna (Cheryl Hines) and the other chimps do not take him seriously. Comet learns that he was removed from the last space mission because of budget cuts, and plans to go on the next space mission. Comet interferes with the controls on a rocket, accidentally launching the ship into space. Eventually, Comet lands on Planet Malgor, where he meets Ham’s alien friend, Kilowatt (Laura Bailey), for the first time, and gains respect from the residents there.

However, back on Earth, Zartog (John DiMaggio), the evil alien from the first film, sneaks into NASA headquarters and takes over Mission Control using a remote that vaporizes objects and zaps three scientists, Dr. Bob (Patrick Breen), Dr. Jagu (Omid Abtahi) and Dr. Poole (Jane Lynch) out of existence. Zartog wants to get revenge on Ham for foiling his plans, and encounters an oblivious Titan (Patrick Warburton), who gives him a tour of Mission Control. Comet, accompanied by Kilowatt, returns to Earth, while Ham evades Zartog by riding on a jetpack. While Zartog is distracted, Comet manages to steal the remote and reprograms it to bring the scientists back, and shrink Zartog; Zartog escapes while the others laugh. The film ends with Zartog running from a dog he harassed earlier.
