Bat Hound Meets the Dog Stars

Written by: John Loy
Directed by: Scott Jeralds

This time around Bat Hound meets the Dog Stars, two allies of Krypto meeting for the first time ever in the series, and as always things don't always go over too well. While repairing their star ship, Krypto introduces Bat Hound to the gang and he quickly feels dwarfed by them as they begin mocking him for not having big powers like they do. But when Hotdog is kidnapped by a mysterious figure in the middle of the night, Bat Hound is quickly on the case, not because he wants to, but because, it's his job. Instantly, the Dog Stars begin to feel bad about mocking him as he displays an innate sense of mental power, catching clues the Dog Stars missed. Hot on the trail for Hotdog, Bat Hound is followed by Bulldog, who finds himself very impressed by Bat Hound's gadgets and sense of skill. Bat Hound and Bulldog go on the trail for Hotdog as the group begins scowering the area and they find Snooky Wookums up to her old tricks. While they catch her, Bat Hound and Bulldog do battle with her, but Bulldog finds that Bat Hound's lack of powers and strong mental abilities save them yet again as they give her the run around until Krypto intervenes helping them. In the end as Hotdog is returned home, and Bat Hound becomes accepted proving his worth, Bat Hound and the Dog Stars discover that superpowers are not always needed when you have brains and courage.

A Dog's Life

Written by: George August Patterson and Brennan Czar
Directed by: Scott Jeralds

As Mutsy and the Downtown dogs feast on food, they joyfully push around Jimmy The Rat who wants some food but is only tossed a crumb. He storms off, angry at the good life Dog's are given and nearly drowns when he falls into the water. He's saved by Krypto but only sees that dogs around the neighborhood are getting it good and once he discovers Chihuahua bear a striking resemblance to rats, he masquerades as one and joins Mutsy but finds the good life is still pretty crummy as he continues being pushed around. Krypto finds Jimmy and instantly catches on to his game and warns that being a dog isn't all its cracked up to be and can lead to trouble. Jimmy ignores him and storms off but is chased by Mutsy and his gang when discovered with food. As Jimmy tries to run away he accidentally gets the gang trapped in a ditch of cement. Krypto comes to save the day and the gang apologizes to Jimmy explaining they really do like him as a friend, and Jimmy learns being a rat is a lot less stressful than being a mutt.
