Cold Open: Joe's Very Own Story Edit

Joe Leahy, the Announcer, tells a story about bad things happening in a seemingly peaceful neighborhood. The Network Censor objects to the story, so Joe has to tell a nicer one.

Synopsis Edit

While helping Steff to shop for her father's birthday present, Freakazoid and Cosgrove become trapped in the virtual reality game Virtual Tussle due to the Lobe's scheming.
