  • Even Kryptonians have bug problems

    This episode was pretty good over all, but it wasn't one of my favorites. A super powered flea from Krypton creates some major problems for Krypto. Superflea is an underestimated villian, he can do some real damage if you think about it. I give this episode a 9.4 out of 10.0.
  • You could say it's what the show's about, only with an animal twist.

    One day, while the two of them mess around with Krypto's spaceship, Krypto and Kevin accidentally unleash a flea from Krypton, and, of course, the sun makes it become a "Superflea". As Krypto goes about on his duties to patrol the city, it attacks him and he finds that he's hard to get rid of. Yes, even fleas can annoy Superdog. After returning home to Kevin, he's in unbearable pain and tried to get rid of him any way possible. After trying all sorts of things: flea powder, having Streaky help, tearing up the yard, he just can't shake him. Kevin, however, finds something in the spaceship (apparently bug spray) and uses it to get Superflea off. In a rage, however, he takes off with Kevin into the sky and Krypto rescues him.

    OK, two problems here that aren't too noticeable (one is actually). Streaky makes his appearance here and knows Krypto's name. If you've seen the series, you'd know this is a problem because he learns about Krypto in the fifth episode, not the third (he even refers to him as the "dog of steel"). Second, I've learned from sources that the bug spray might be a form of kryptonite (not sure as to this yet). All in all, a great episode and is what the series should be about. 9.7/10moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Continuity: This episode, much like "A Bug's Strife" is clearly set after "The Streaky Story", since Streaky obviously knows Krypto by name, which he didn't until "The Streaky Story", and even specifically refers to Krypto as "the Dog of Steel".

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Krypto: I'm gonna scratch you into the fifth dimension!

    • (After Kevin grabs a spray can)
      Kevin: Oh please. Please don't be alien hair spray. (He goes to Krypto) Krypto, hold still.
      (He sprays Krypto with the spray bug. Super-Flea feels the smell and starts to panic. He then gets angry and comes out of Krypto. He kncoks away Kevin's spray bug and stands in front of him. Kevin looks at Super-Flea with an angry look in his eyes and Super-Flea grabs his jumper and flies away with him)
      (Super-Flea comes out with Kevin of Krypto's dog house and goes in the air with him. Krypto comes out as well of the dog house)
      Krypto: Kevin!
      (Krypto looks around and sees the backyard destroyed. Meanwhile Super-Flea is taking Kevin up in the sky and Kevin is screaming. Super-Flea laughs while he takes him up)
      Kevin: Krypto! Krypto! Help! Krypto! (Super-Flea feels something) Let me go! Let me go! (Super-Flea yans and falls asleep) Wait! I take that back! Don't let go! Don't let go! (Kevin falls. An airplane almost hit him but Krypto arrives in time and saves him)
      Krypto: Welcome aboard. Next stop: home.
