  • Episode Description
  • A small serving of a Mugu fish tail leads to a 24 hour paralysis. Brain intends to use the fish in his Cappy Brain's Frozen Fish Sticks and sell them to an unsuspecting public. However, elite Japanese sumo wrestlers horde what Mugu fish there is. With a modified mechanical suit, Brain enters the sumo wrestling world and the ring. Will he be able to win it all, though?

    • Pinky: The sumo men must eat a lot to get so fat. Hamma: Wrestlers not fat, Pinky-san. It is muscle tissue resulting from years of strenuous yoga exercises. (the chef comes out with a cart of pies) Chef: Who wants pie? (the wrestlers stampede to the cart) Hamma: Of course, even the best athletes like a little meringue.
