Tom Jones and THE Flaming Lips have teamed up for one of the strangest collaborations of the year (03) - to record the theme to a new Daffy Duck cartoon show.

The Welsh singer and the eccentric American trio have recorded the main theme for DUCK DODGERS, in which cartoon hero Daffy plays a space traveller.

Flaming Lips frontman WAYNE COYNE says, "My mother can't believe I'm doing a song with Tom Jones. It's like a James Bond theme."

The group are keeping the space theme in mind for an upcoming movie debut - they're writing, directing and starring in a new film called CHRISTMAS ON Mars, which will also feature LORD OF THE RINGS star Elijah Wood.
