I GO TO PODDLEVILLE - THEY'RE THERE!

CASTLEBLANCA - THEY'RE THERE!

THEY'RE EVERYWHERE, I TELL YOU! EVERYWHERE!!

SPEAK TO ME, HACKER, BABY. WHO'S EVERYWHERE?

MOTHERBOARD'S LITTLE HELPERS.

THOSE MISERABLE, MEDDLESOME KIDS! LISTEN TO ME!

YOU, MY FRIEND,

ARE SUFFERING FROM WHAT WE IN THE BIZ CALL

A PERCEPTION PROBLEM.

YOU'VE GOT TO CHANGE THE WAY OTHERS SEE YOU.

PROVE TO THE CITIZENS OF CYBERSPACE THAT

YOU'RE SMARTER THAN THOSE KIDS.

YOU MEAN...SHOW THEM UP ONCE AND FOR ALL?

AHA, BINGO DINGO! THEN THE HACK - WILL BE BACK

ON THE ATTACK!

YES! YES! I LIKE IT!

I'M AFRAID I HAVE SOME DISTURBING NEWS.

HACKER HAS THE ENCRYPTOR CHIP!

THE ENCRYPTOR CHIP?!

NO WAY!

I SAY HE'S BLUFFIN'!

THE HACKER HASN'T TOLD

THE TRUTH SINCE THE DAY HIS SIMULATOR

WAS ENERGIZED!

NEVERTHELESS-

(EVIL LAUGHTER)

LISTEN UP, KIDDIES!

INSIDE THIS MINIATURE VERSION OF THE GRIM WREAKER

CLEVERLY ENSCONCED IN THIS UNBREAKABLE GLASS SAFE...

IS THE ONE THING THAT WILL MAKE

MOTHERBOARD STRONG AGAIN

THE ENCRYPTOR CHIP!

IT'S YOURS FOR THE TAKING.

WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO TO GET IT?

TO BEGIN WITH...

HEY! DUNCEBUCKETS!

YOU MUST ACCEPT MY CHALLENGE

THAT WILL BE BROADCAST TO TV'S ALL ACROSS CYBERSPACE!

TAKE NOTES, CHILDREN.

THE WREAKER TWO RUNS EXCLUSIVELY

ON GLOW POWER PROVIDED BY THE RARE AND RADIANT...

...GLEAMERS!

I WILL RELEASE THE GLEAMERS ONTO THE ISLAND.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS FILL THIS POWER PANEL

WITH ENOUGH GLEAMERS TO START THE SHIP

AND FLY IT OFF BY SUNSET.

IF YOU SUCCEED THE ENCRYPTOR CHIP WILL BE YOURS.

IF YOU FAIL (LAUGHING) BYE-BYE KIDDIES.

BUT HOW MANY GLEAMERS DO WE NEED?

YEAH! AND HOW MANY POWER GLOWS DOES IT TAKE

TO START THE SHIP?

AND HOW MANY POWER GLOWS DOES EACH GLEAMER HAVE?

HA HA! YOU EXPECT ME TO SIMPLY GIVE YOU

ALL THE ANSWERS?!

FIGURE IT OUT FOR YOURSELVES, THINK IT OVER.

I DON'T LIKE IT...

WHY NOT, MOTHER

DON'T KNOW IF THE CHIP IS REAL.

MAYBE WE DON'T. BUT JUST THINK - IF IT IS REAL,

DR. MARBLES CAN USE IT TO FIX YOU!

AND EVEN IF IT'S A FAKE,

HERE'S OUR CHANCE TO SHOW THE CYBERWORLD

THAT HACKER'S NOT INVINCIBLE!

AND ON TV, TOO!

ISLAND - TURNS INSIDE-OUT AT SUNSET!

BUT WE'LL GET THE CHIP WAY BEFORE SUNSET,

WON'T WE GUYS?

GREETINGS, GAME SHOW FANS!

WE'RE COMING TO YOU FROM HIGH ABOVE

TOPSY-TURVY ISLAND

IN THE SOUTHERN FRONTIER.

TODAY IS A CLASSIC CONFRONTATION BETWEEN GOOD

AND ...BETTER!

NOTHING LESS THAN SUPREMACY OVER CYBERSPACE IS AT STAKE!

I HAVE IN MY POSSESSION THE KEY TO VICTORY...

OR, DEPENDING ON THE OUTCOME THE SYMBOL OF DEFEAT!

MY BEAUTIFUL GLEAMERS!

BELOW ME, ON AN UNINHABITED ISLAND, ARE THE CONTESTANTS!

THE RULES: IF THEY CAN POWER UP THE WREAKER TWO BY SUNSET

THE ENCRYPTOR CHIP IS THEIRS!

IF THEY DON'T, THEY WON'T GET OFF THE ISLAND

AND I, THE HACKER,

SHALL BE PROCLAIMED THE ULTIMATE OVERLORD

OF CYBERSPACE!

AND NOW, HERE COMES THE MOMENT

YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR.

IT'S TIME TO PLAY: FIND THOSE GLEAMERS!

HERE THEY COME!

AND THERE THEY GO.

WE'LL NEVER FIND THEM IN ALL THOSE TREES!

HEY, DIDGE! WHAT'S WITH YOUR BEAK?

I DIDN'T USED TO WORK FOR THE HACKER FOR NOTHIN'.

THIS BEAK OF MINE'S GOT GLEAMER SENSORS. FOLLOW ME!

HEY, BOSS! YOU FORGOT ABOUT DIGIT'S GLEAMER SENSOR!

EXCUSE ME.

LISTEN TO ME, YOU DUNCEBUCKET!

I DON'T CARE IF HE LIGHTS UP LIKE A CHRISTMAS TREE!

THOSE KIDS ARE GOING DOWN!

GET YOUR NETS READY, EARTHLIES,

WE'RE ABOUT TO GLOM A GLEAMER!

GOT IT!

HOW DO WE KNOW HOW MANY POWER GLOWS THIS ONE HAS?

NO TIME FOR THAT NOW!

ALL WE GOTTA DO IS CATCH UP ENOUGH OF THEM,

PUT THEM IN THE POWER PANEL

AND WE'RE OUTTA HERE BY NOON!

GLEAMER!

OUT OF HERE BY NOON? HAH! CLEARLY, GAME FANS,

THAT PHOSPHORESCENT CYBERTURKEY HAS FORGOTTEN

THAT HE'S UP AGAINST THE HOTTEST THING

TO HIT CYBERSPACE SINCE INSTANT MESSAGING!

ME!

HACKER, BABY.

YOU'RE COMING OFF STRONGER

THAN JUDGE TRUDY'S SWEAT SOCKS!

I GOT IT!

THERE'S ANOTHER ONE!

MAN, THE HACKER'S EVERYWHERE!

CAN YOU GET IT, DIDGE?

ALL THE WAY UP THERE?

I'LL GET IT!

YOU SURE?

WATCH ME!

BE CAREFUL, JACKIE!

GOT'CHA!

JACK-IE! JACK-IE! JACK-IE!

PUT THE THIRD ONE IN, NEZZIE.

HIT THE SWITCH, DIDGE.

LET'S SEE HOW MUCH POWER WE HAVE.

OH, AND MATT... DON'T CALL ME NEZZIE!

WE HAVE 18 GLOWS OF POWER!

THINK 18 IS ENOUGH?

ONLY ONE WAY TO FIND OUT.

HANG ONTO YOUR HI-TOPS, EARTHLIES!

GUESS WE'RE A LITTLE SHORT ON GLEAMER BUGS.

WELL, AT LEAST WE FOUND OUT WE NEED MORE THAN

18 GLOWS OF POWER-

WE JUST DON'T HAVE A CLUE HOW MUCH MORE WE NEED.

NOT ONLY THAT -

WE DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW MANY POWER GLOWS

ONE GLEAMER BUG HAS.

HMMM...IF WE TAKE OUT TWO OF THEM -

WE CAN SEE HOW MUCH POWER THE ONE LEFT BEHIND HAS.

EXCEPT... THEY WON'T COME OUT. HUH!

WHAT A PITY! I'M PRACTICALLY MOVED TO TEARS -

TEARS OF LAUGHTER, THAT IS.

(LAUGHING)

OKAY, WHAT DO WE KNOW?

WELL, WE KNOW THAT 3 GLEAMER BUGS

PRODUCE 18 GLOWS OF POWER

SO WHAT'S THAT GOT TO DO WITH ANYTHING?!!

DON'T KNOW,

BUT MAYBE IF WE DRAW A PICTURE WE'LL GET AN IDEA.

THOSE ARE THE SILLIEST LOOKING BUGS I EVER SAW!

GET OFF HER CASE, MATT!

JACKIE, IF YOU USE A LETTER TO STAND IN FOR EACH

OF YOUR BUGS,

YOU CAN STILL DO WHAT YOU WANT

AND NOT HAVE YOUR BUG-ART CRITICIZED.

OKAY, SINCE THEY'RE BUGS, LET'S USE B.

B, B, B.

OH GREAT, NOW WE GOTTA DEAL WITH LETTERS INSTEAD

OF BUG PICTURES?!!

HOLD ON! I'M GETTING AN IDEA.

B STANDS FOR BUG BUT IT COULD ALSO STAND FOR

THE POWER GLOWS

EACH BUG PUTS OUT

WE'VE GOT THREE BS PUTTING OUT 18 UNITS OF POWER.

3B IS 18.

HMMM. THREE TIMES WHAT IS 18?

THREE TIMES SIX IS 18!

THE GLOW POWER OF ONE BUG IS SIX.

SEE DIDGE?

LETTING THE LETTER B STAND IN FOR THE POWER

OF A GLEAMER

HELPED US FIGURE OUT THE PART WE DIDN'T KNOW.

OKAY...BUT WE'VE GOT FIVE SLOTS HERE.

HOW MUCH POWER WILL WE GET IF WE FILL THEM ALL

WITH GLEAMERS?

LET'S SEE. HMM. FIVE BUGS...FIVE BS.

IF ONE BUG GIVES OFF SIX UNITS OF POWER,

THEN FIVE BS WILL BE FIVE TIMES SIX...

I GOT IT! FIVE TIMES SIX EQUALS 30.

AND SINCE THERE AREN'T ANY MORE SLOTS TO FILL -

30 GLOWS OF POWER SHOULD GET THE WREAKER STARTED.

AND WE WIN!

LET'S GET THOSE GLEAMERS!

MY BEAK IS TWITCHIN' ALREADY!

TWO RED GLEAMERS - NORTH BY NORTHEAST!

FOR MOTHERBOARD!!!

GAME...SET...MATCH!

WHOA! WHERE'D THOSE BUGS GO TO?!

AHHHHHHHHH!

HA-HA-HA! BYE, BYE, KIDDIES!

JUMP!

OK GUYS, START SWINGING!

I CAN'T BELIEVE THOSE GLEAMER BUGS

WERE A HOLOGRAM!

I, I SHOULDA KNOWN THE HACKER WOULD CHEAT!

CHEAT? MOI? CAN I HELP IT IF I'M A GENIUS -

AND THEY'RE NOT?

OK, SO THIS IS GOING TO BE TOUGHER THAN WE THOUGHT.

BUT LET'S NOT PANIC.

I SAY WE SPLIT UP! WE CAN COVER MORE GROUND THAT WAY.

MATT'S RIGHT.

AND WE ONLY NEED TO FIND TWO GLEAMERS TO FILL THE PANEL.

AND I THINK I KNOW WHERE ONE OF THEM IS!

OHHHHH!

NOW I ASK YOU, GAME FANS, WITH THAT RIDI

FOR A BIRD LEADING THE WAY-

-DO YOU REALLY THINK THOSE EARTHBRATS,

OH, UH, I MEAN CHILDREN, WILL FIND ENOUGH GLEAMERS

BY SUNSET? I DOUBT IT.

SO LET'S TALK ABOUT SOMETHING MORE IMPORTANT.

IS YOUR WIG CONSTANTLY ASKEW?

DOES YOUR TOUPEE SLIP OFF YOUR HEAD

ON THAT ALL IMPORTANT INTERVIEW?

WELL, I'M HERE TO INTRODUCE A STARTLING NEW ADVANCE

IN FAKE-HAIR TECHNOLOGY.

THE HACKER'S WIG-GEL!

DON'T WORRY, CYBERWORLD - WE'LL FIND THOSE GLEAMERS!

(COUGHING) GOT 'EM!

HI, DIDGE.

HEY! WHY THE LONG FACES?

WE STRUCK OUT.

WE DIDN'T EVEN CATCH ONE GLEAMER.

I DID!

WHY DIDN'T YOU SAY SO?!

C'MON, LET'S PUT IT IN AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS!

IF ONE BUG GIVES OFF SIX UNITS, THEN FOUR BUGS

SHOULD GIVE US 24 UNITS OF POWER.

HOW CAN THAT BE ENOUGH?

WE'LL NEVER KNOW UNTIL WE TRY.

LET'S SEE WHAT WE'VE GOT.

THANKS BUDDY!

WOW, IT'S A TIGHT FIT!

THERE!

THAT'S WEIRD!

HOW COULD 4 BUGS TOTAL 30 IF ONE BUG IS WORTH SIX!

WAIT A SECOND!

THIS ISN'T ONE BUG,

IT'S TWO BUGS STUCK TOGETHER!

THAT'S WHY THE TOTAL'S DIFFERENT!

THIS BUG IS A 2-B!

SO WHY'D WE GET 30?

LOOK DIDGE, HERE'S WHAT WE HAD.

B PLUS B PLUS B.

AND SINCE THIS BUG IS A DOUBLE,

WHAT WE REALLY HAVE IS B PLUS B PLUS B PLUS 2B!

YOU MEAN WE REALLY COLLECTED 5B OF POWER GLOWS?

YUP! AND IF 1 B IS SIX, THEN 5B IS 30.

JUST LIKE THE METER SAYS!

ALRIGHT! WE GOT OUR 30 ANYWAY

LET'S SEE IF THE SHIP STARTS.

STANDBY FOR BLAST OFF... I HOPE.

OH, MAN, WE'LL NEVER GET OFF THE GROUND!

AT LEAST WE KNOW NOW IT'S GOING TO TAKE MORE

THAN 30 GLOWS OF POWER TO DO IT.

BUT HOW MANY MORE? THAT'S THE MYSTERY.

YOU DIDN'T THINK HACKER WAS GOING TO MAKE THIS EASY,

DID YOU?

HEY, WHAT'S THIS?

LET'S SEE IT, DIDGE.

THE WREAKER TWO,

MANUFACTURED BY CYBERCRAFTS FOR BAD GUYS.

FORTY GLOWS OF POWER NEEDED FOR LIFT OFF.

DIGIT, YOU'RE A GENIUS!

SO LET'S GO GET ANOTHER GLEAMER!

WHOA, HANG ON A SEC, MATT.

THERE'S ONLY ROOM FOR ONE MORE GLEAMER -

BUT IF IT'S A SINGLE GLEAMER...

...WE'LL HAVE 6B.

AND 6 TIMES 6 IS ONLY 36 UNITS OF POWER!

NOT ENOUGH POWER TO TAKE OFF!

(SIGH) YOU'RE RIGHT.

WAIT! WHAT IF WE CATCH ANOTHER DOUBLE-GLEAMER?

OKAY, LET'S LOOK AT IT. THAT WOULD GIVE US 7B.

AND 7 TIMES 6 IS 42!

WHICH IS MORE THAN ENOUGH GLOWS TO GET

THIS BABY AIRBORNE!

WE'VE GOTTA FIND A DOUBLE GLEAMER! LET'S GO!

UH-OH! THE BOSS ISN'T GONNA BE HAPPY ABOUT THIS!

HUH! HE'S TOO BUSY SELLIN' HIS WIG STUFF

TO EVEN KNOW WHAT'S GOIN' ON!

THE MORE YOU PUT ON - THE BETTER IT IS.

ONCE THE GEL SETS - YOU CAN BE IN A TORNADO AND-

WHOOPS!

HACK, SWEETHEART, CHICKIE-BABY,

PICK UP THE PHONE! PICK IT UP!

YOU'RE BLOWING IT!

HURRY UP, NEZZIE!

DON'T CALL ME THAT!

I GOT IT!

THEY DID IT!

THEY GOT IT!

ALL GLEAMERS IN PLACE!

LET'ER RIP, DIDGE!

FORTY-TWO! WE'VE GOT POWER GLOWS TO SPARE!

PREPARE FOR LIFT OFF!

YAAAAAY!

BOSS! BOSS! FORGET THE WIG-GEL!

THE KIDS ARE TAKIN' OFF!

THEY'RE WHAT???

NOOOOOOO!

GAME OVER! THE ENCRYPTOR CHIP IS OURS!

YOIKES!

WE'RE LOSE'N' POWER!!!

WATCH...OUT!

HELLLLLLLLLLLLP...

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT - I'M STUCK!

AHHH! NOW I'M REALLY STUCK!

WHAT'S HAPPENING?!

I SMELL THE HAND OF HACKER!

EWWW!

IN CASE YOU'RE WONDERING, GAME FANS,

CHANGING THE POWER LEVEL OF THE GLEAMERS

IS ALL PART OF MY MASTER PLAN

- A WAY TO GIVE THOSE BRATS-CHILDREN,

A LITTLE EXTRA TEST. HE-HE-HE.

THIS IS NOT GOOD. THIS IS NOT GOOD AT ALL.

OK, LET'S THINK THIS OUT. WHAT'S CHANGED?

WE HAD ENOUGH POWER - THEN WE DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH POWER.

DIDN'T THE BOSS SAY HE CHANGED THE GLOW POWER

OF THE GLEAMERS, BUZZ?

DELETE!

WHAT?

ZIP IT!

SO THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED!

HACKER CUT THE GLEAMERS'S POWER SO WE'D CRASH!

OKAY, SO WE NEED MORE POWER BUT HOW MUCH?

IF WE FIGURE OUT

WHAT THE POWER OF THE GLEAMER BUGS CHANGED TO

WE'LL KNOW HOW MUCH MORE WE'D NEED!

WE CAN DO THAT!

LOOK, B STANDS FOR THE POWER OF ONE GLEAMER

AND WE STILL HAVE OUR 7BS, RIGHT?

BUT 7B DOESN'T ADD UP TO 42 UNITS OF POWER ANYMORE.

RIGHT. IT SAYS 7B IS 28.

SO WHAT TIMES SEVEN IS 28?

FOUR! FOUR TIMES SEVEN IS 28!

HACKER CHANGED EACH GLEAMER'S POWER TO 4. B IS 4!

LET'S SEE IF THAT WORKS.

...28 IS RIGHT!

THE POWER OF ONE GLEAMER BUG IS NOW 4!

EXCUSE ME, BUT WE STILL NEED 40 UNITS TO TAKE OFF!

HOW DO WE DO THAT?

WE'VE ALREADY GOT BUGS IN EVERY SLOT?

WHAT IF WE MAKE THEM ALL DOUBLES?

FIVE SLOTS OF DOUBLES WILL GIVE US 10B.

WELL, IF 1 B IS FOUR,

THEN 10 B IS 10 TIMES 4, OR 40. HEY, THAT'S...

JUST WHAT WE NEED TO TAKE OFF! TWO BUGS IN EACH SLOT.

IT GIVES US ENOUGH POWER TO TAKE OFF BY SUNSET!

ONLY ONE PROBLEM,

WE CAN'T GET THE TUBES BACK OUT TO PUT IN MORE GLEAMERS.

NOT SO MATTY,

WHEN I BENT MY BEAK CHASING THAT GLEAMER

I REMEMBERED THAT HACKER MAKES A SECRET SWITCH

FOR EVERYTHING! TA DA!

YEAH! ALL RIGHT, DIDGE!

WE NEED TO FIND THREE MORE GLEAMERS

BEFORE THE ISLAND TURNS INSIDE OUT!

LET'S FIND 'EM!

FAAAAAAAST!

UM, BOSS? UH, WE GOT A PROBLEM.

TELL ME ABOUT IT!

I'M COMING DOWN!

HANG ONTO THOSE GLEAMERS, NEZZIE.

MATT! ENOUGH WITH THE NEZZIE!

OKAY NEZZIE! INEZ, INEZ! SORRY!

WE'RE GETTIN' CLOSER!

WHERE'S THE GLEAMER?

OVER THERE!

IT'S A SINGLE - JUST WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR!

SO HOW ARE WE GOING TO GET ACROSS?

HOLD THE TREE FOR ME! I'M GOING ACROSS!

WHOA!

MAAAAATT!

THIS IS TOUGH ON THE CPU!

I GOT IT!

(CHEERS)

I WONDER IF THESE GUYS HAVE AN AGENT?

BOSS, BOSS! THEY'VE GOT ALL THE GLEAMERS THEY NEED!

THEY'RE GONNA TAKE OFF!

LAST ONE!

LOAD 'EM UP, MATT.

THAT SHOULD GIVE US 40 GLOWS OF POWER!

LET'S ROCK 'N ROLL!

WE'VE GOT LIFT OFF!

AHHHHHHH...

(CHEERS)

WE'RE NUMBER ONE! WE'RE NUMBER ONE!

WHAT A DAY!

GREAT JOB, CYBER-MATES.

THANKS, MOTHERBOARD.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE ENCRYPTOR CHIP?

IS IT REAL?

AS I THOUGHT... A CHEAP FAKE.

WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED?

AT LEAST WE SHOWED UP HACKER!

AND ON CYBERWIDE TV!

IT WAS SWEEPS WEEK, TOO. TIME TO GO HOME

UNTIL NEXT TIME.
