Episode Recap

Yanhee Doodle Pigeon was using evasive maneuvers in order to avoid the Vulture Squadron when the show up from haystacks. Dastardly tries to motivate the squadron, causing them to rush over him. When Klunk tells Zilly to be ready for their newest plan, Zilly tries to run away but Muttley catches him and asks a medal from Dastardly. Dastardly then gives him his smallest medal, to which Muttley complains. With a rubber tube, Muttley and Klunk throw Zilly at the pigeon but the tube pulls him back and Zilly's plane hits Dastardly's. Dick's parachute saves them both from the fall and he threatens to transfer his squadron to North Pole when the General phones him saying he has sent an efficiency expert in order to shape up the Vulture Squadron. The expert tests the Squadron and says Klunk, Zilly and Dick are on the wrong business and suggests them to become plumbers but says Muttley should lead the squadron but Dastardly objects until the General forces him to accept it. Muttley orders the squadron to go to the air and Zilly tries to hide himself. Muttley orders Dastardly to catch him. Muttley laughs until he has to face the bad part of being the leader, much to Dastardly's joy. While on another attempt to catch the pigeon, Dastardly "accidentally" cuts Muttley's plane in half. Even tough Muttley could save himself by spinning his tail, he orders Dastardly to do something. Dastardly picks Muttley on a net and asks a medal as reward. Muttley gives his smallest one and Dastardly retaliates by dropping him and laughing like Muttley usually does. The expert tells the squadron he changed Muttley's test for Dastardly's and Dastardly is once again leader of the squadron. Enraged, the General calls the expert back, pulling him through the telephone. As punishment, Muttley is confined to a winged dog house pulled by Dastardly's plane.
