  • Even expert heroes need help from time to time.

    A new villain, Mertin (or Murton, or Murtin, I'm not sure how to spell it), shows up at the local fair to ruin the fun and make everyone leave so he can grab the carrots (he's a rabbit). Krypto and Ace, however, have other plans. It becomes apparent that Mertin is a lot stronger than they thought, as he's able to escape by using his magic against Krypto and Ace. Shortly afterwards, Stretch-O-Mutt shows up (conviniently) and, after hearing the story, agrees to help. He seems really amazed about Bat Hound (he's never seen him before, only heard stories), and Ace doesn't like the idea of him tagging along. He suggests that he stays on the street corner as a mailbox to watch and see if Mertin comes by (this is to get rid of him). But at the food store, Mertin transforms Krypto into a card (King of Spades), and leaves with him, leaving Stretch and Ace to find and fight him. Ace proposes a magic duel once he confronts Mertin: if he beats him, he has to change Krypto back. By having Stretch transform into all sorts of things, he can steal Mertin's wand and end things once and for all.

    Stretch-O-Mutt returning for another fight was a good sight to see. It felt like things went at a nice pace, not really rushing anything. Some of the puns were...yeah, pun-ish. Not much of a complaint, though. Finally a perfect set of episodes (the first set was nearly there, but we can count it as one). 10/10
