  • Episode Description
  • The Pussycats are presented a chance to play before royalty in a desert kingdom. They, however, are only interested in Valerie because she looks almost identical to their Princess Milwila, who has been kidnapped by the Evil Eye. Valerie accepts the offer to help and takes her place until she is found. But she gets kidnapped as well, along with Melody who's hypnotized by the Evil Eye. The rest of the gang pursue and enact a crazy rescue plan as music and chase scenes follow as they find out who's behind the Evil Eye.moreless

Alexander: (using high-pitched voice) She means her sister. (chuckles, then loses skirt) Evil Eye: Imposter! Seize them!!!

    • From this episode on, the title card of each episode uses a faster paced music theme.

    • At the end of the episode, Alexandra gets her wish to have her own group as she and Sebastian become Alexandra and the Cool Time Cat.
