3-2-1 Penguins is a spin-off of VeggieTales created by Big Idea Productions in 2000. It tells the story of two kids who discover a toy spaceship and penguin figurines at their grandmother's house during summer vacation. When they are having a difficult situation, the kids are sent inside the ship and meet four penguins who travel through outer space and visit planets where other citizens are having the same problem as them.

In 2006, the series, along with VeggieTales and LarryBoy: The Cartoon Adventures was aired on the NBC block Qubo and had new episodes created for it after it became the #1 program on the block. While most of the episodes have been released to the public, one of them, Songs from Cosmic Cafe, has not resurfaced since 2009, when it, along with LarryBoy and VeggieTales, was removed from the schedule of the NBC block. The episode was a compilation of songs from the home video releases with new framing segments that took place at the titular cafe. The songs included in the episode were Space Surfin' Superstar, Spaceship Drivin' Man and The Legend of Galaxy Gus.

On May 11th, 2019, a reconstruction of the episode aired on SAT-7 Kids in the Middle East (although it was dubbed in Arabic). The next day, the episode in Arabic was uploaded to YouTube and was set to premiere that day. Shortly after the premiere within a few hours, NebbaKNezzaFan228 has uploaded his reconstruction of the Arabic version with English audio. Despite this, the real episode itself still remains lost, however, given that the new framing segments (as mentioned above) were not in the SAT-7 Kids broadcast, seeming that SAT-7 Kids was not given the real version of the episode from Qubo.
