Face Time

Written by: Len Uhley
Directed by: Scott Jeralds

In an attempt to bring Stretch-O-Mutt into the superhero lexicon, Krypto introduces him to the Dog Stars and helps him befriend them. But that darn Mechanikat strikes again and inflicts the group with weird bacteria. But mysteriously Krypto and Stretch aren't affected. So it's now up to them to retrieve the antidote and help out the team. But alas, when Krypto is stunned by Kryptonite beams, Stretch must go to work. With the help of Krypto's fading powers, Stretch masquerades as the team and takes on Mechanikat for the first time helping the team in a hilarious episode where he pounds on robots and helps fend off against Snooky giving the duo a taste of their own medicine. Stretch craftily imitates the group's individual powers through Krypto's heat rays, and super strength and foils Mechanikat on their first meeting.

In an attempt to sidestep Krypto's powers, Snooky blasts Krypto with a mysterious ray while he and Streaky are patrolling one day, and Mechanikat's plan begins. Instead of beating Krypto, they attempt to beat him at the punch and begin turning him into a cat launching him into Mechanikat's world Catopia where Krypto is able to eat tuna, scratch furniture and play with giant balls of yarn unaware Mechanikat is tempting him. Streaky now has to get him back and turn him back to normal, but not before Krypto gradually begins turning into a feline with hilarious results involving yarn. Streaky comes to the rescue fighting Mechanikat's bots and turning the ray on Krypto once more, and turns the tables on Mechanikat once again.
