Listen and find out!

A Change of Face

The Warners give their secret away for how they stay so young. They have plastic surgery! Unfortunately Wakko takes it too far and gets “A Change of Face” when he comes out looking like Michael Jackson!

Mace Ventura: Pet Hunter

Rita and Runt are back! But unfortunately Rita can’t sing because it’s a comic book. To make things worse they’re being chased around by Mace Ventura who wants to kill and stuff the two for an old woman’s collection!

Cannoli or Nothing

The Goodfeathers need to get the last cannoli to the Godpigeon. Unfortunately Frank Pigeonatra also wants it! The Goodfeathers have to get the cannoli without offending their favorite singer!

Shopping Beauty

Minerva is cursed. She has a credit account with 5 months, zero percent interest on her purchases. She goes throughout the mall looking for a prince to save her. Unfortunately none of the “princes” she meets are up to her liking.
