PSEUDO-SPAM (but not really): One word conlangs in "The Tick"

I don't know if it's reached Europe yet, so for those of you on the
other side of the ocean who may not know what it is, The Tick is a very
strange superhero cartoon on TV.

There was an episode once where the Tick and Arthur (his sidekick) are
abducted by aliens in order to save the universe from *another* set of
aliens. These two sets of aliens are called the "Heys" and the "Whats",
after the way they speak.

"Hey hey hey! Hey! Hey hey!"

"What? What what what? What what? What?"

The Heys are the ones trying to destroy the universe.

While this is, in fact, a pointless message, I thought some listmembers
might be interested.
