  • Not exactly one of my favorites...Kevin and Krypto get older after being hit with an aging ray by Snooky and Mechanikat.

    Mechanikat's newest machine, an aging ray, has been entrusted in Snooky's hands to turn Superdog old and keep him out of Mechanikat's way while he makes his next plans. Meanwhile, Kevin and Krypto are playing basketball, and Kevin, ironically, is starting to realize how being short is effecting his life (he can't dunk, but Krypto can only because he can fly). Krypto hears a noise, which he quickly recognizes as Snooky Wookums' spaceship and flies off to apprehend him, with Kevin following closely behind. When they get there, Krypto wants Kevin to hide while he takes care of this. Snooky hits Krypto with the beam, but it also bounces of his tag and onto Kevin, making both of them age. Mostly the next part is Kevin and Krypto returning home (thankfully his parents aren't there), and Kevin is confronted by Andrea, who has no idea who he is, and he has to talk his way out of it (why didn't he just not answer the door?). Krypto and Kevin figure out what Mechanikat wants (the world's largest ball of yarn), and Krypto tries to go after him while Kevin gets the age ray. Even with Krypto being old, he manages to stop them, and Kevin gets the device. They return home, and Kevin decides to try dunking one time before returning to normal age.

    They could've had either a bit more action in here (such as Streaky joining the fray) or more comedy (which I think there was enough already). That's about my only complaint. Probably not the strongest of the episodes, but good nonetheless. 9.6/10
