Episode Summary

EDIT
Invasion of the Neptune Men
AIRED:
Movie Plot: Invasion of the Neptune Men A horde of invaders from Neptune is thwarted by a rocket technician in disguise.

Intro: After reading a National Geographic story about eyelash mites, the 'bots convince Mike to have the Nanites to eliminate them. Segment One: The Nanite war is going badly because the mites are more powerful. Crow and Tom blame Mike, though they wanted the war. On the planet, Pearl is jealous because of all the attention paid to the Mad Goth, aka Bobo. He has a 40-foot statue unveiled in his honor(with some anatomical additions). Observer convinces Pearl to get Bobo back. Meanwhile, the 'war' is just a big practical joke that the 'bots have played on Mike. They ask why he even got rid of the mites. Segment Two: The 'bots perform a Kabuki play for mike, but he prefers Noh theater. The 'bots get all confused...which may or may not be Mike's revenge for the eyelash mite joke. Segment Three: Just before he leaves the theater, Tom contracts Rogie-Panty Complex, so Mike applies packs of panties to him. Meanwhile, Pearl and Observer try to convince Bobo to leave with them(he may or may not have amneisia), but he wants to stay with his statue. Flavia thwarts their plans, however. Crow says he has Rogie-Panty Complex--he really doesn't, he just wants all the attention Tom is getting. Segment Four: The crew starts to break down as they leave the theater, and they are really struggling with the movie. However, Phantom of Krankor(from Prince Of Space) appears to conquer them. The crew are happy to see someone that is more dignified than the Neptune men. They get friendly with Phantom and even give him a hug. When he leaves, Mike starts to cry(with happiness). Segment Five: Crow has made a suggestion box, which he has filled with suggestions for Japan(which all have to do with the movie). There's even one for Luxemborg--to be thankful they aren't Japan. On the Planet, Pearl and Bobo are in line for the Mad Goth's autograph, just to try and steal Bobo away. She gets frustrated and whacks him with a tablet--which apparenly clears up his amnesia and he becomes Bobo again. However, this exposes Pearl and Observer as not being gods, so Flavia has them captured.
