Reptile Round Up

Written by: David Teitelbaum and Jeff Elmassian
Directed by: Scott Jeralds

In a fit of boredom, Ignatius decides to seek out his surroundings and cause trouble, but as always when Ignatius is bored, it eventually leads to trouble. In an attempt to lure Krypto to ease his boredom, after a stern lecturing on false alarms by Krypto who arrives to help, Ignatius really learns about false alarms for the sake of attention. Ignatius discovers a machine that can clone him, and with an answer for companionship results in a catastrophe of multiple copies that he can't stop, nor can he convince Krypto to help. Ignatius gets a taste of his own medicine and too much of a good thing when his copies turn on him, and cause havoc stealing food much to the dismay of Krypto who cleans up the mess and teaches Ignatius a stern lesson about false alarms.

Streaky's Field Trip

Written by: Wendell Morris
Directed by: Scott Jeralds

Streaky's attempts to take a nap are once again disrupted, when his nephew arrives with the rest of the fan club prepared for their big field trip. Reveling in his heroic image, Bathound interrupts and takes the spotlight. Here, Streaky realizes he actually enjoys the attention he takes for granted when Bathound is on the case for The Penguin's bird henchmen. In an attempt to find Bathound's cave, Streaky breaks in to show off to his club accidentally calling Krypto and Bathound to the scene and luring the Penguin's henchmen. After Krypto and Bathound are tied and bound, it's now up to Streaky who proves to his fans he can battle with the best of them. Save for one plot hole (Kryptonite fades Kryptonian abilities, so Streaky couldn't break Kryptonite rope with heat vision), "Streaky's Field Trip" is a sweet tale about Streaky re-claiming the respect of his friends.
