    • Respect Your Elders
      Two of The Elders of the Neurtron Galactic Federation, the supreme beings who rule over the destinies of the alien Brody family members, pay a visit to see how future leader Bobut is being raised. Bobut quickly becomes disillusioned with High Elder Prissy's training methods (and the heavy crown he has to wear), so it's up to Doug to prove to Prissy that Bobut is being properly educated. Meanwhile, Heather goes out of her way to impress a clique of popular girls by having Spit gross them out.moreless
    • Too Good to Be True
      Snizzy invents a duplicating machine that makes things nicer. When Bobut insists on acquiring a Stinky Stevie doll ("the doll that barfs on you") that his parents won't let him have, he clones himself and the real Bobut sneaks off to the toy factory. Doug and Cookie fear that they've done something wrong to make cloned Bobut so insipidly sweet -- while the real Bobut finds himself being packed and shipped to two obnoxious rich children.moreless
    • You Don't Have a Pet to Be Popular
      Sally puts Bobut on a no-pudding diet and his usual antics ensue. The family gets hyped up when Spit's pet, Varch, a Harnazian Funazz, comes to live with the family. Varch takes an instant liking to Heather, who can't stand him. To make matters worse, Heather's new boyfriend, Ethan, comes to visit, and Varch welcomes him by eating the boy. But Heather feels bad when she finds Varch asleep in her closet and throws a shoe at him – but he doesn't wake up. Heather thinks Varch is dead, but doesn't realize his breed sheds their exoskin.moreless
