Episode Summary

Rebop for Bebop

The gang enters the Battle of the Bands against a number of competitors, including Buddy "Slash" Warren, for a $100 cash prize. Mudfoot introduces the gang to Lester Benson, a jazz and saxophone player who was famous in the 1950's. Unfortunately, he was the same old man the gang encountered earlier when Buddy came by the junkyard and insulted him and his old time music. Lester is reluctant to help them, but finds himself in danger during a windy night. Fortunately, the gang arrives in the nick of time and saves him. After their initial misunderstanding, Lester agrees to help them work on their music for the Battle of the Bands. On the big night, the Junkyard Band wows the crowd and wins the competition. Afterward, they perform an encore with Lester leading them with his saxophone.
