Jackie: Hey, guys! Watch this!

Way to go, Jax.

Ha ha! Awesome!

Stand aside, Earthlies.

The Digit's gonna show you his stuff.

Coming down!


Didge, duck!

A duck? Where?


Jackie: Slider!

Both: Uh!


No problem. Ha ha.

Nice catch, Slider.

Hey, I'm just glad nobody got hurt.

Digit: How do you stop this thing?!


Anyone thirsty?

Jackie: Ah. Nothing like ice-cold water when you're hot.

And sweaty.

I'm a nonsweat cyboid, you know.

Sweat is just water, Didge.

When we drink, we're just putting back what we lost.

I read that our bodies are almost 70% water.

Isn't that cool?

Digit: Careful, you guys.

Don't drink too much.

You'll overflow. Ha ha!

Slider: New water park--

just opened a few days ago.

Want to try it?

Uh, yeah.

Good job, dude. See you tomorrow, same time, same place.



Whoo hoo!

110, 120. Boy, the boss had

a great idea this time, Buzzy.

Maybe later we can try

the Cyclorama Splash Pool

or the Twisty--

Deedee, we're running a business here.

We're not supposed to have fun.

Oh. I just thought maybe--

Keep counting.

Inez: I've always loved Radopolis.

Now I love it even more!

It has everything!

Man on loudspeaker: Yo, my fellow Radsters.

It's me--King Dudicus.

I hate to be a bummer,

but I've got, like, serious business to discuss.

So grab your decks and meet me at Way Cool Arena,

like, pronto.

Wonder what's up.


Jackie: Whatever this is about,

it sure sounds important.

Matt: Whoa. Check it out.

Digit: It looks like a giant garbage can.

How could this happen?

King Dudicus: Yo, Radsters,

your attention, please.

Uh, as you can see, Way Cool Arena

is now totally full of empty water bottles.

What happened to the dump?

I'm afraid the dump is full up, Slider.

We had to put our empties here,

and, well, I guess I maybe saw this coming,

but I'd hoped it wouldn't get this bad.

I guess I was wrong.

But if this arena's full,

where are you gonna put the rest of our empty bottles?

Well, that's the tough part.

See, starting today, we have to dump the empties

in the Skate Park.

No! You can't do that. Don't do it, King!

The Skate Park?

But that's our place.

We practically live there.

Sorry, Slider, but, like, we don't have a choice.

We've got to do something, dude.

And this is your plan?

Delete: 8 and 2 is 10, plus 3 is...13.

Hacker: Where is everyone?

This place is a ghost town.

Oh, hi, boss. They went to some kind of meeting

at Way Cool Arena.

But don't worry. They'll be back.

They love this place.

Look how many snelfus we're making.

At this rate, I'll be richer than rich!

And do you know what that means?

We'll be rich, too?

Don't be ridiculous.

It means I can build an army of cyborgs

exactly like me-- an entire army of Hackers

to take over Cyberspace!

What could be better?

Maybe a small army of us?

Yeah. More Buzzes

and Deletes.

Uh, ha ha. I don't think so.

Meanwhile, the notion that the "totally rad" Radsters

are the ones to fund my little scheme

is just too, too perfect!

Jackie: So, what is Radopolis going to do

when the Skate Park is full of empties?

Hmm. Good question.

Matt: There's the problem right there.

You can't tell people they can't drink water.

That's true. Your body needs it.

And everybody drinks it.

So, what are you gonna do?

Oh. This is not good. This is not good at all.

Matt: Fast ball. Strike one!

Hey, guys.

What's with the target practice?

I was mad because King Dudicus

let the water bottle problem get so big.

It's ridiculous. But then I realized

I was part of the problem.

Look at all the water I drank just this week.

5, 6, 7, 8-- 10 bottles?

That doesn't sound like a lot.

Well, maybe not for a week,

but think about how many I must drink in a year.

And that's just me. What about the rest of Radopolis?

The number must be huge.

OK, OK. Let's do the math.

10 bottles times 52 weeks.

Yikes! That's 520 bottles a year!

And that's just me.

What about everyone else?

So how many Radsters live here?

I don't know for sure.

Maybe 2,000?

You think they all drink as much water as you do?

Maybe. Maybe some drink more, some less.

OK. What you drink is probably a fair estimate

for everyone else, so that means

520 times 2,000, which equals...


Matt: Whoa! Over a million bottles!

And that's just in one year.

If you laid that many bottles end to end,

they'd stretch all the way across Cyberspace,

from Radopolis to Castleblanca

and back again.

And what's gonna happen

when the Skate Park is filled up?

King Dudicus is gonna have to find more and more

places to put them.

At this rate, Radopolis will be

nothing but empty bottles!

Digit: So, Kingy, what are you gonna do

with all the empties?

I don't know, Didge.

People have been telling me to, like, recycle them,

but there must be millions of them.

It would take, like, forever, dude.

And even if you recycled every single empty,

there would still be more coming every day.

Wait. Those are two different problems.

Well, what do you mean, dudette?

Well, the first problem

is the empties you have now.

The second one is how to make sure

this doesn't happen again.

So solve the first problem by recycling the empties.


Yeah, OK, but what about the second problem?

Like, how do we stop this from happening again?

Inez: Um, I don't know, but I'm sure there's an answer.

It's a tough one, Kingy.

I'll give you that.

Hey, what's with that truck over there?

It fills the park with water

so they don't use Radopolis water.

Sorry, dudes. I gotta split.

Need me some think time.


Yeah. Later.

Hey, Inez, take a look at this.

What? Oh, it's just the pipe

leading from the tanker to the Water Park.

Then how come it's not connected

to the Water Park?

Hmm. That's weird.

See anything?



This tanker is totally empty.

No water at all-- not even a drop.

So where's the water in the park coming from?

Beats me.

[Hacker chuckling]

Hey, boss. Buzz wants to know if--oh.

What you doing? Are you playing a game?

Of course not.

I'm designing my cyborg army.

This will be my prototype.

Um, he doesn't look exactly like you, boss.

Not yet. I just have to add my magnificent chin

and my flowing black hair.

Oh. Handsome.

Yes, very, and now my commanding chest.

Ooh, ooh! And your legs.


Your cute widdle wegs.

Cute? Widdle?

Get out!

Jackie: OK, so, what do we know?

We know there are way too many

empty water bottles in Radopolis.

And if every Radster drinks 10 bottles a week,

that's over a million empty bottles a year.

So, what's everyone supposed to do?

Stop drinking water?

We know we can't do that.

What if everybody just drank less?

That's it!

Both: It is?

Sort of. We've been looking at this the wrong way.

The problem isn't the water or drinking it.

Then what is it?

The disposable bottles and all of us choosing to use them.

Well, yeah. I guess we could use reusable bottles

and just refill them, but would that really make a big difference?

Yes. Think about it.

If you have a reusable bottle,

you don't need to buy any bottled water.

But is that practical?

Carrying a bottle with you everywhere is a pain.

Matt, you have a backpack.

Lots of kids do, and anyway,

aren't mountains of trash a pain?

Yeah, OK. You're right.

Let's see if we can convince everybody else.

Oh, there must be another pipe around here somewhere.





[Liquid flowing]

I hear water!

Look! This end goes towards the Water Park.

And the other end goes under that shed.

Inez and Digit: Hacker?

Inez: Hmm. What's he doing here?

Whatever it is, it can't be good.

What's in there?

Digit: Some wheelie thingies.

Inez: "In," "Out."

In and out what?

I don't know, but let's take another peek at that pipe.

Well, we know this pipe

goes from here to the Water Park.

But what's it connected to?

Hmm. Wonder where it's coming from.

Only one way to find out, Inez--

follow that pipe.

Wow! What is that?

Digit: It looks like some ginormous well.

And it's almost empty.

How can you tell?

See that mark?

That's where the water should be.

Didge, I think this is the town reservoir.

The town what?

Ha! Reservoir-- the place where the town keeps its water.

If so, looks to me like they're running out of it.


Now, which way is the water going?

That way.

And what's back there?

Uh, the Water Park.

And who did we just see there?

The Hacker!

Dude. You want me to carry this around all the time?

That's a bummer.

Dude, did you see all the empty bottles

at Way Cool Arena?

That's a bummer.

If we use fewer disposable bottles,

we'll make less trash.

If we make less trash,

we can save the Skate Park

and help Radopolis, so that's our goal:

make less trash.

Good plan. You can drink from water fountains, too.

Yeah. OK.

And you'll save money.

Bottled water is expensive.

More money in your pocket for a new board.

Rad, dude. I'll drink to that.

Bob, I need 2,000 wigs exactly like mine.

How soon can I get them?


Is that a problem?

But your wigs are...


It'll take time and a few more snelfus

to make that many.

Let me put it this way, Bob.

I want those wigs, and I want them now!

And I'm not paying you one extra snelfu!

Yeah! He's gonna clone himself a lot of times.

Yeah. 2,000.

B-b-but, Hacker--

That's THE Hacker to you.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. B-b-but, Hacker, 2,000 wigs are--

THE Hacker.

Yes, of course. B-b-but, Hacker--

THE Hackerrr!

You know what's cool?

I thought this was some big problem

King Dudicus had to solve for Radopolis,

but the truth is, we can solve a lot of it ourselves.

Yeah, you're right.

What we each choose to do

really does make a difference.

Now we just have to convince more Radsters

to use reusable water bottles.

Come on. There's a big party at the Skate Park.

Slider: We can tell everybody there.

Inez: Guys! Guys!

You'll never guess who owns the Water Park.



Uh-huh. And worse than that,

he's using the water from the reservoir

to fill the park!

No way. We can't let him do that.

You guys go to the party

and tell everybody about the bottles.

I'll deal with Hacker.

Wait up, Sli. I'll go with you.

Hacker: Ha ha ha! This Water Park scheme has worked

better than my wildest dreams!

And now that I have the place to myself for a while,

I think I'll have some fun.


You know what I'm thinking, Deedee?

You want to go swimming.

I want to go to the big party.

Oh. I don't know, Buzzy.

Come on. The boss is having a good time.

Why can't we?

You're right. He won't even miss us.

Let's go!

Slider: This must be how you control the water

going in and out of the park.

This wheel--uh!-- shuts off the water going into the park.

Uh! So now Hacker can't use the water from the reservoir.

Done. And this one drains the water

that's already in the park out of the park.

Back into the reservoir?

No. Uh-uh. There's a basin on the other side of the Water Park

where it goes.

What are we waiting for? Let's drain it.

Uh! Allow me.

Uh! Too...tight!

On 1, 2, 3!

Inez: Using reusable water bottles

and filling them up with tap water

will be good for Radopolis.

But isn't bottled water better than tap?

In some places, it is, but in most, like Radopolis,

tap water is good.

But, like, where will we refill the bottles?

At home or at water fountains.

Dudes and dudettes, we're gonna put refilling stations

all over so it's, like, super easy for you.

And the best part is,

there's no plastic bottles to throw away.

No more dumping a million empties

into your parks and arenas.

Yeah! And we're, like, gonna recycle all the empties

in Way Cool Arena, too!


Buzz: What a good idea.

How come the boss never thought of this?

Delete: Come on, Buzzy.

Let's get a refusable.




The rest is up to you, Kingy.

I'm on it, dude.

Let's see.

Shall I be King Hacker of Cyberspace?

No. Uh-uh. Uh-uh.

King of Hackerspace.

No, not grand enough.

Lord Hacker.

No. I need something...


Emperor Hacker!

Ha ha. Getting there.

King Dudicus: Yo, dude!

Are you speaking to me?

Yeah. I've got some bad news for you, dude.

That's THE Dude to you.

We found out that you've been using

the town's water for your park, so...


So here's your bill.

3 million snelfus?!

But that's more than I made.

Yeah. That's, like, life, dude.

Oh, and one more thing.

You no longer own the Water Park.

Radopolis does.

You can't do that.

Have a groovy day, Hacker dude.

Wait! Don't go!

Is this open for discussion?


What happened to my water?

Buzz? Delete?

Get me out of here!

Where are you duncebuckets?!

Singer: ♪ All right ♪

This is really fun, Buzzy!

Come on, Deedee! Let's do an Ollie!

What's that?

I don't know. Let's just do it!

Coming down!

Good one, Jax!

Awesome! Way to go!

Yo, Radsters!

Thanks to these reusable bottles...

And Slider and the CyberSquad...

and Slider and the CyberSquad,

the Skate Park will be able to stay open,

and the Water Park is ours to enjoy,

for free!


All we need now is for the reservoir to fill up again.

A little rain would sure help.


Singer: ♪ More than a million ♪

It's raining!

Talk about timing, dude.



Oh! Uh!



King Dudicus: Yeah! Party on, Radsters!

Party on. Whoo hoo!
