Tusky's Tooth

Written by: Nancy French
Directed by: Scott Jeralds

When an alien cargo courier gets stuck in space between meteors, the Dog Stars arrive to the rescue, but in the midst of the destructive the meteors, Tusky's tooth is detached and lodged in to the meteor which he explains was a baby tooth. Hearing about the tooth fairy from Krypto they decide to hide the tooth under his pillow to wait for her, but Mekanikat has other plans as he schemes to take Tusky's tooth. He dresses as the tooth fairy, a very funny sequence in which Mekanikat wears lipstick, a white wig and fairy wings, one of the many surprises that come with this show. Mekanikat who has Tusky fooled leaves him money, but Tusky wants a new tooth instead which the fairy promises falsely. Mekanikat's plans go through perfectly, but he has other things in store as he intends on using the tooth against the Dog Stars as a missile. Mekanikat's plan goes through with flying colors as the Dog Stars just can't destroy the mighty molar (corny, ain't I?), but luckily Tusky's new tooth comes through and he saves the day destroying the tooth and saving the day. But the Dog Stars get the last laugh when they post Mekanikat in Tooth Fairy costume all over the galaxy as one last payback.

When Penguins Fly

Written by: Joseph Kuhr
Directed by: Scott Jeralds

The Penguin's birds are at it again as his penguin Waddles finds it more than difficult to escape the clutches of Krypto, but he stumbles into a lab where a scientist is planning to mix abilities of different animals, and now he plans on flying. He tricks Streaky, transferring Streaky's powers to Waddles. Now with his newfound abilities, Bat Hound, Krypto, and Streaky are finding it very difficult to defeat Waddles, but with some great team work they lure him to the same device that gave him his powers and everything is returned back to normal. But as they're led off by Streaky, Waddles doesn't care, because for a brief moment, he was a superpowered winner.
