Wander and Sylvia's spa day is cut short when a bunch of fleas have to flee their planet because a giant dog, Buster, has come back to attack it, assuming it's a ball, like what happened to the past planets the citizens lived on. Wander helps the fleas take on Buster by coming up with plans of his own to chase him away, but all doesn't go well and they might have to flee after all.
Does this planet closely resemble a tennis ball?
Seriously, don't try this at home
Can bubbles really do that?!
"I hope everything at our Relaxatorium is to your liking?"
"I am so pleased you've enjoyed your stay on Balzeria 9. We're quite fond of our peaceful home!"
Those chimes in the distance, they mean...
"Well, time to flee and abandon it forever."
No, I'm not finished yet!
I guess we'll have to cut this spa day short.
Time to Flee
"Beeza, what the heck is goin' on?!"
"Oh, a thousand pardons."
"It's just that our entire planet..."
"...is about to be destroyed."
"On eight different planets..."
"...we've built our perfect civilization."
"And eight different times, we've heard the Armageddon Chimes."
"Letting us know that he's come to destroy..."
"...all we've worked so hard to build."
"It's pretty routine by this point!"
"We used to call him the Worldbuster."
"But now, most of us just call him..."
Look out for the nose-cumme!
"This doomsday is moving along quite briskly!"
Convincing to Work Together
"You folks are abandoning..."
"...your beautiful home..."
Phew, that's not gonna happen again.
"Oh, there aren't any planets left in our system! "
"We have absolutely no idea where we're going."
"We'll just fly through space until we run out of fuel."
"How does one fight off cannibals?"
"Some kind of pointy stick, I assume."
"Y'all have put so much work into this..."
"...pretty little planet."
"Don't you want to try and save it?"
know you're scared of Buster."
"But if you keep running..."
Taking his hat off for mood.
"That's all you're
ever gonna be doing!"
"You have a chance to change that."
"You just have to turn and face your problems..."
"That's good enough for me!"
Giving the Dog a Bone
The building site of Plan A
Hammering a section in place.
Wait, he needs help for this.
The laser technicians fire the rockets.
Beginning the rivet punching.
Sylvia punches the rivets
This pose looks familiar...
There, the cone is ready.
Wander and Beeza twist the cone into place.
The rocketing...whatever it is.
Close up of the adorable but destructive dog
Now activating the extra edition.
Uncovering the first half
Revealing some sort of other thingy
It looks like the lower half of a bone!
Now for the upper half...
Now inflating the upper half of the bone
"Here's to facing your problems..."
That wasn't hard, was it?
"I did not think I was gonna win."
Come here, flea leader you!
Space traveler and colony leader hugging.
Running back to the planet
Busting into the atmosphere
Eyes focused on the falling bone...
This is what the town looks like before it's hit...
"What happened?! I thought it worked!!"
"Flarf nabbit, it DID work!"
"We threw a dog a bone..."
Wait, now he's drooling?!
"The Sticky Rains of Terror?"
It even splashes the viewer!
Trapped in a drool droplet
There's a wave behind us!
Look out! Drool coming your way!
Oh, she suddenly eats it.
How does dog drool taste?
"But these folks seem okay with..."
"...just getting outta here!"
"Maybe we should be too?"
I've got to stop them, again!
Is he asking us to chant with him?
Providing the perfect military music
The perfect military stancing, too.
The dog whistles used to stop Buster
Note: No one can hear the sound except the dog.
Wow, that really went right into his auditory.
Trying to scratch the sound away
Blue in the face, literally.
Still scratching his ears
They're heading towards us!
The buildings are flying!
Oh, this isn't going well.
A planet-eating dog is so hard to stop!
"Everybody! Wait! New plan!"
"All new and improved plan!"
"Hit that tongue with the grossest, nastiest, worst-tasting garbage you can find!"
Here comes the tongue roller!
...in a baby's underwear!
Buster's tongue is covered in garbage.
Whaaaa...why didn't it work?"
"Wander, don't you get it?!"
Okay, that's enough licking for now.
Buster's about to do the final attack to the planet.
Looks like he's gonna chew it!
Looks like this is the end of the planet.
Totally upset that this didn't work
Now Wander's on a potential stalagmite! (Made by the destruction of the planet)
"Sorry buddy, it's time to go!"
On the ship
It's going, it's going...
Well, so much for saving Balzeria.
Now it's a home for Buster...probably.
And so, for the first time, Wander's plan to save the day actually failed.
"So we didn't get a win this time."
"Sometimes a problem is
"There's only one way to stop this..."
Make way for the screaming orange dude!
I got a flea colony to save!
Hey, what's he doing here?
You're not supposed to enter the cockpit, you don't work here!
"Come on, what are you --"
What -- he's heading straight for Buster?!
Would you just let me in?!
"That little kamikaze's heading straight for that..."
"I know you're upset that Buster ate the planet!"
"Heck, so are the
rest of these folks!"
"But destroying him and us is not the answer!"
"That's what I'm doing!!!"
"I'm facing this problem..."
Most insane scream of the episode
Welcome to your new home!
"Have you lost your nut?!"
"Do you realize what you just did?!"
"Without that ship, these folks have nowhere to live! They needed someplace safe from Buster with..."
"...places for really great..."
Oh, what a beautiful view!
"Oh, Wander, thanks to you..."
"We finally have a permanent home!"
"See, y'all always wanted to flee."
"All you really needed to do..."
"F-L-E-A, flea! You know, bzzt, like the bug? 'Cause they're livin' on the dog?"
"Look, if you have to explain the joke..."
A yarn planet, possibly having a similar problem
