Up, Up, and Away

Written by: Ken Koonce and Michael Merton
Directed by: Scott Jeralds

Ignatius strikes again and is gaining weight after pigging out on food. His trainer decides to start putting him on a diet against his will, and, as you can imagine, Ignatius isn't too happy about it. So to make himself lighter, he creates helium muffins which will endow him with the ability to be lighter than air, but, as you can guess, things don't turn out exactly like Ignatius plans. Ah, but as always things take a turn for the worse when a class on a field trip eat the muffins and begin floating. But as the class begins floating in the sky, it's Krypto to the rescue. However Krypto must also stop a gargantuan amount of dough from rising and ruining the Lex Corp building. This was yet another funny episode with Ignatius wreaking havoc in an attempt to help himself with amusing results. Ignatius is one of the more humorous villains of the series. He has a spoiled attitude, with a Lex Luthor vibe, which he pulls off well.

Dinosaur Time

Written by: Joseph Kur
Directed by: Scott Jeralds

Feeling inadequate yet again, Ignatius decides he'd be king in the dinosaur age, so he breaks in to Lex Corp and steals their time machine jumping in to the dinosaur age. Kevin and Krypto are accidentally brought along for the ride. Meanwhile as they arrive in the strange world, Krypto and Kevin fight off pterodactyls while Ignatius makes his way to some dinosaur eggs to pig out but is met by the mother T-Rex who chases him around angrily growling. It was funny watching Ignatius try and outrun the mom and getting a surprise in the end where, when they manage to escape, we discover the dinosaurs talking eloquently among themselves griping at the rudeness of the three visitors. Yet another unexpected twists courtesy of this pretty clever show.
