The Mystery of the Missing Snacks

Lulu: “All right, so it sounds like the next thing we need to do is find Chaplin and the Riddler.”
Batman: “Excellent plan, Dog Wonder! So who is this ‘Chaplin’? Is he a villain with a little mustache and a bowler hat?”
Spicoli: “Close, dude. He’s a cat with a soul patch.”
Batman: “A cat with a soul patch? Diabolical! How will we ever track down such a fiend?”
Charlee: “I’ll just wave this flirt pole around a little.”

Snackvestigators

Producer Smurf: “Spicoli, why do you still smurf your sunglasses when you’re sleeping?”
Spicoli: “I think you mean trying to sleep, dude. And I wear them because it’s so bright here.”
Producer Smurf: “But why don’t you go smurf somewhere that’s not so bright?”
Spicoli: “Because then it would be too dark to see with my sunglasses on.”
Producer Smurf: “Oh, of course.”

Observed Around The Board Room

Mouse: “… So as you can see, I’ve performed a thorough examination and analysis of Chaplin’s genetic makeup and I can confirm that this is really him, not some sort of replicant or alien impersonator.”
Spicoli: “That imagery is a little bit terrifying, dude.”

All’s Sour That Ends Sour

Cyberman #1: “You and your accomplices are now prisoners of the cyber authority. You will be transported to an appropriate detention facility.”
Lulu: “Does this mean we’re all going to prison?”
Charlee: “Probably.”
Chaplin: “Given Dennis’s track record I’m surprised we’ve stayed out of jail this long, to be honest.”
Cyberman #2: “Where did you get your stereo installed?”
Cybersqueekle: “At Fry’s.”

No Treble

Producer Smurf: “All right, I’ve smurfed you a spot on a battle of the tribute bands type thing.”
Cybersqueekle: “I do not remember hiring you to be our manager.”
Producer Smurf: “Oh, see, I already manage the others, so by majoritarian rule I’m smurfo facto the manager of the entire band.”
Charlee: “Why do we have to be the Squeekles tribute band and wear these ridiculous wigs?”
Chaplin: “Yes, why didn’t you tell him you would be in the band?”
Mr. Nibbles: “Because I can’t sing.”
Lulu: “I feel like a sheepdog.”

See I Told You

Lulu: “See? I told you they were nice! Well, one of them, anyway.”
Mr. Nibbles: “See? I told you we could get out of that situation by working together.”
Charlee: “See? I told you sending Lulu to bark at the door was a bad idea.”
Chaplin: “All right, all right, I get it.”
Lulu: “Thank you for carrying us out of there, Mr. Cyber Authority Man!”
Cybersqueekle: “You are welcome. Now we must go to the costume store before the other cyber authorities emerge from your domicile and discover that the mouse has freed you.”

Observed Around the Secret Ninja Hedgehog Lair

Norman #1: “I’m starting to think there’s just a tape recorder in there, Norman.”
Norman #2: “Maybe we should just dump it over.”
Ninja Hedgehog Commander: “No, that’s too risky, Norman. You may have beaten the fluffy dog in paw-to-paw combat, but she might have booby-trapped the wheelbarrow.”

ChapQuest

Spicoli: “Yo, mousie dude, any luck locating Chaplin’s microchip yet?”
Mouse: “Not yet. I just uploaded the worm and it’s starting to search for other computers and IoT devices to infect and use to search for Chaplin.”
Vermin: “HISS! Now we have to walk on nasty wood chips?! I didn’t sign up for this!”
Mr. Nibbles: “But it’s such a nice day. And aren’t the trees pretty?”
Producer Smurf: “Boooooring.”

Search Pawty

Lulu: “Where’s Charlee?”
Mr. Nibbles: “Apparently she was serious about catching up on nap time while her brother is away.”
Lulu: “Fair enough. What about the mouse?”
Spicoli: “He’s rigging up a computer worm to take over all the networks in the area and track Chaplin’s microchip.”

Handsome Ransom

Charlee: “It seems like the thing to do will be to go to the ninja hedgehog lair and ask them to give Chaplin back.”
Spicoli: “What makes you think the hedgehogs will give him back instead of keeping him as a hostage, dude?”
Charlee: “Haven’t you ever heard of ‘The Ransom of Red Chief‘?”
