HACKER: IT'S SLIDER AND THOSE EARTH BRATS!

COULD THEY HAVE FOUND MY MISSING LINK?

SLIDER: GOT EVERYTHING?

INEZ: I'VE GOT THE MAP!

MATT: I'VE GOT THE NIC!

THE NETWORK INTERFACE CARD THAT ACTIVATES MY TRANSFORMATRON...

I KNEW THEY HAD IT!

SLIDER: HANG ON, POPS! WE'RE ON OUR WAY!

AHH! THEY EVEN KNOW WHERE COOP IS!

BUZZ! DELETE! PULL ME UP!

(BANG)

OWWW!

BUZZ: GOTCHA, BOSS!

DELETE: SORRY!

(WREAKER RUMBLES AWAY)

INEZ: SLIDER!

ACCORDING TO THIS MAP,

THAT'S WHERE YOUR FATHER IS!

HANG ON!

DIGIT: HM. IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE ANYONE LIVES HERE TO ME!

(GASPS)

I SAW SOMEONE!

SLIDER: WAIT! DON'T GO!

COOP: SLI?

IS... IS THAT YOU?

HOW'D YOU KNOW MY NAME?

COOP: I GUESS YOU DON'T RECOGNIZE ME, SON.

SON?

DON'T CALL ME THAT!

YOU'RE NOT COOP.

MY DAD'S NOT OLD LIKE YOU!

REMEMBER THIS?

POPS! IT IS YOU!

INEZ: LOOKS LIKE SLIDER FOUND HIS DAD.

JACKIE: AWESOME!

COOP: I NEVER WANTED TO LEAVE RADOPOLIS,

BUT I HAD NO CHOICE, SON.

SLIDER: WHY? WHAT HAPPENED?

WHEN I LEARNED THAT HACKER

PLANNED TO USE THE TRANSFORMATRON

TO TAKE OVER CYBERSPACE,

I REFUSED TO GIVE HIM THE BLUEPRINTS.

WHAT I DIDN'T COUNT ON WAS HIS REVENGE.

IT HAPPENED A FEW DAYS LATER.

I WAS TESTING A NEW MONO-LINE BOARD,

WHEN I SUDDENLY REALIZED HACKER HAD SWITCHED MY HELMET

FOR ONE MADE OF MAGNETITE.

MAGNETITE!

NOOOO!

COOP: ALL CYBORGS REACT DIFFERENTLY TO MAGNETITE.

SOME SUFFER MORE DAMAGE THAN OTHERS.

SOME NONE AT ALL.

FOR ME, THE DAMAGE WAS TOTAL.

MY HARD DRIVE DETERIORATED,

AND I BEGAN TO "TIME WARP."

I REALIZED THAT MAGNETITE COULD DESTROY MOTHERBOARD...

AND HURT YOU THE SAME WAY IT HAD ME.

I COULDN'T LET THAT HAPPEN!

I HAD TO LEAVE AND FIND A CURE.

I HID THE NETWORK INTERFACE CARD

THAT HACKER WOULD NEED TO ACTIVATE THE TRANSFORMATRON,

AND A MAP TO WHERE I WAS GOING.

I KNEW SOMEDAY YOU'D FIND IT,

AND COME LOOKING FOR ME.

I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND WHY I LEFT, SLI.

SLIDER: I DO NOW, POPS.

AND HERE'S THE NIC.

WELL DONE, SON.

(LAUGHS) AND HACKER'S GOING BONKERS LOOKING FOR IT.

COOP: THAT'S BAD, JACKIE.

THAT MEANS HE'S PIECED TOGETHER THE BLUEPRINT

AND BUILT THE TRANSFORMATRON!

I DON'T GET IT, COOP.

WHAT EXACTLY DOES THE INTERFACE CARD DO?

HACKER NEEDS IT TO CONNECT HIS COMPUTER

TO THE TRANSFORMATRON.

THEN HE CAN PROGRAM IT TO TRANSFORM HIMSELF

INTO ANYTHING HE CHOOSES!

(BANG!)

DIGIT: WHAT WAS THAT?!

KIDS: HACKER?

MATT: NICE SUIT.

THE HACKER, TO YOU!

MOCK ME IF YOU WISH, YOU IRKSOME EARTH CHILD,

BUT THIS NICE SUIT AS YOU PUT IT,

PROTECTS ME FROM... THIS!

COOP: MAGNETITE!

HACKER: THAT'S RIGHT!

NOW HAND OVER THE INTERFACE CARD

BEFORE I CRASH YOUR HARD DRIVE PERMANENTLY!

DIGIT: FORGET ABOUT IT HACKER,

I'M IMMUNE TO THAT STUFF!

REMEMBER?

HACKER: BUT HE'S NOT!

NOW HAND OVER THE NIC!

NO WAY! THE NIC STAYS WITH ME!

HAVE IT YOUR WAY!

AH!

COOP: SLI!

OH NO!

MY FEET HAVE BEEN SUPERSIZED!

HACKER: (EVIL LAUGH)

KIDS: SLIDER!

NOW I HAVE THE NIC AND YOUR SON!

WELCOME TO YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE, MY OLD FRIEND.

(LAUGHS)

JACKIE: OMIGOSH, THIS IS THE WORST THING THAT'S EVER HAPPENED!

WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO?

I'M GOING AFTER MY SON!

MATT: WE'RE COMING, TOO!

COOP: NO!

STAY HERE AND MIX THE CURE I DEVELOPED.

I CAN'T DO IT MYSELF

BECAUSE ONE OF THE INGREDIENTS IS MAGNETITE.

HERE'S THE RECIPE.

MIX THESE INGREDIENTS TO GENERATE AN ORANGE CYBERFIELD

AND REVERSE THE DAMAGE OF THE MAGNETITE.

BUT COOP...

JUST BE SURE YOU MEASURE THE RIGHT AMOUNTS

OR IT WON'T WORK!

INEZ: COOP, WAIT!

YOU CAN'T GO ALONE, I'M COMING WITH YOU.

AND DON'T TRY TO ARGUE, I ALWAYS WIN.

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!

INEZ: SEE YOU AT HACKER'S AND HURRY!

(GASP) IS THAT THE TRANSFORMATRON?

COOP: YUP. AND IT LOOKS READY TO GO.

INEZ: SLIDER NEEDS OUR HELP!

IF WE DON'T REVERSE THE DAMAGE SOON,

IT'LL BE TOO LATE!

DIGIT: OKAY! WE GOT ALL THE INGREDIENTS.

JACKIE: COOP SAID ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS FOLLOW THE RECIPE

AND MEASURE THE RIGHT AMOUNTS

TO GENERATE THAT ORANGE CYBERFIELD.

MATT: THAT'S FOUR CYBERCUPS OF MAGNETITE,

SIX CYBERCUPS OF KRISTINIUM,

AND SEVEN CYBERCUPS OF FRANCESIUM.

UH-OH. ONE PROBLEM.

WE NEED A CYBERCUP TO MEASURE OUR AMOUNTS.

LET'S SEE, CYBER TAPES...

STICKS... SPOONS... A-HA!

CUPS! ONE FOR EACH OF US.

MATT: HERE'S ONE, TWO, THREE...

EXACTLY FOUR CUPS OF MAGNETITE.

JACKIE: I'LL ADD ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR,

FIVE, SIX,

SEVEN CUPS OF FRANCESIUM.

DIGIT: ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE,

SIX CUPS OF KRISTINIUM.

MATT: STIR AND CURE!

JACKIE: IT'S WORKING!

MATT: GREAT! WE'LL TAKE IT TO SLIDER AND-

KIDS: EW! GROSS! EEUWW! IT STINKS!

MATT: WHERE'S THE ORANGE CYBERFIELD?

DIGIT: GOT ME. WE MUST HAVE MESSED UP.

JACKIE: MAKE ROOM, I GOTTA PACE.

OH! HOW CAN WE FIX OUR MISTAKE,

IF WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS?!

MATT: WE HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WENT WRONG,

SO WE DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AGAIN.

DIGIT: BUT WE USED THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS,

JUST LIKE COOP SAID.

JACKIE: AND WE MEASURED OUT EACH AMOUNT.

WAIT A MINUTE!

I THINK THESE MEASURING CUPS ARE DIFFERENT SIZES!

IF THEY ARE, THEY WON'T MEASURE THE SAME AMOUNT OF STUFF

AND OUR MEASURMENTS WERE WRONG!

DIGIT: SHEESH, I SEE WHAT YOU MEAN.

THIS ONE LOOKS BIGGER THAN THIS ONE!

JACKIE: AND IF WE DON'T MEASURE OUT

THE RIGHT AMOUNTS OF THE FORMULA

IT'S NOT GOING TO WORK!

WE NEED TO KNOW FOR SURE

IF THE CUPS ARE THE SAME OR DIFFERENT.

MATT: I HAVE AN IDEA!

THESE GLASSES ARE IDENTICAL.

LET'S FILL UP EACH CUP, POUR THAT AMOUNT INTO A GLASS,

AND COMPARE THE AMOUNTS.

DIGIT: BRIM FULL, EARTHLIES!

MY MEASURING CUP HOLDS THE SAME AMOUNT AS THE GLASS.

MATT: UH-OH! OVERFLOW!

MY CUP HOLDS MORE THAN YOURS, DIDGE!

JACKIE: MINE HOLDS LESS!

NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE TOP.

MATT: WHU-OH!

THE CUPS DO MEASURE OUT DIFFERENT AMOUNTS.

SO WE DID MEASURE WRONG!

JACKIE: OH, MAN!

UNLESS WE FIGURE OUT HOW TO MEASURE

THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF EACH INGREDIENT -

WE'LL NEVER CURE SLIDER!

HACKER: MAKE IT SPARKLE, MY DUNCEBUCKETS!

CYBER-HISTORY IS ABOUT TO BE MADE!

MEET THE ELECTRIC EEL OF AQUARI-YUM...

THE SOURCE OF POWER FOR MY TRANSFORMATRON.

I STOLE IT FROM ICKY'S SUPER SECRET HIDEAWAY.

(LAUGHS) THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW IT'S GONE.

AND THIS, MY YOUNG FRIEND IS THE PEDESTAL OF PENGUIA.

A MYSTICAL, MAGICAL, MECHANISM

THAT WILL CARRY THE POWER

FROM THE EEL TO THE TRANSFORMATRON.

IN A SHORT WHILE,

I WILL BECOME MORE POWERFUL THAN EVER BEFORE!

MY DAD WILL STOP YOU.

UH! HE WILL?

NOT A CHANCE!

AS SOON AS I PLUG THIS CARD INTO MY COMPUTER,

I CAN TRANSFORM INTO AAAANYTHING I CHOOSE!

AFTER THAT, CYBERSPACE WILL BE MINE!

(EVIL LAUGHTER)

WE'VE GOT TO GET SLIDER OUT OF THERE!

I MIGHT JUST HAVE A WAY.

FOLLOW ME!

JACKIE: OKAY, WHAT DO WE KNOW?

WE KNOW WE NEED A MEASURE THAT'S EXACTLY ONE CYBERCUP.

BUT WHICH ONE IS IT?

DIGIT: WAIT A MINUTE!

WAY BACK, IN COOKING SCHOOL,

I MUST HAVE MARKED THE CUPS!

SEE? THIS ONE SAYS "ONE CYBERCUP!"

MATT: GREAT! LET'S START OVER, ONLY THIS TIME...

WE'LL USE THIS STANDARD MEASURE FOR EVERYTHING!

JACKIE: COOL! WE DON'T NEED THESE ANYMORE.

WHOOPS!

MATT: HERE'S ONE FOR REAL CYBERCUP OF MAGNETITE.

AND HERE'S TWO...

MATT, WAIT!

THE FIRST TIME YOU MEASURED OUT ONE CYBERCUP,

IT WASN'T EVEN UP TO THE TOP.

BUT LOOK... THIS CUP IS SUPER FULL.

MATT: SO? I USED THE SAME CUP EACH TIME.

WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

DIGIT: YEAH, NO BIGGIE! WE'RE IN A HURRY!

HURRY OR NOT, THE RIGHT AMOUNT MATTERS.

MATT: OKAY, OKAY.

LET'S LEVEL OFF THIS SUPER FULL CUP AND SEE WHAT WE'VE GOT.

DIGIT: YOIKES! LOOK HOW MUCH EXTRA THERE WAS

JUST FROM HEAPING IT UP ON TOP.

MATT: TO GET THIS RIGHT, WE NEED TO FILL OUR MEASURING CUP

EXACTLY TO THE TOP EACH TIME.

LET'S DO IT!

THIS TIME IT HAS TO BE RIGHT.

(BUBBLING SOUNDS)

YAY!

IT WORKED!

LET'S GO CURE SLIDER!

JACKIE: OH, NO!

THE CYBERFIELD ONLY LASTED A SHORT TIME!

WHO KNEW?! NOT EVEN COOP!

MATT: C'MON! WE'LL TAKE EVERYTHING WITH US,

AND MAKE A FRESH BATCH AT HACKER'S.

BUZZ: ALL CLEAN, BOSS! *** AND SPAN!

DELETE: YEAH! YOU'RE GOOD TO GO!

HACKER: AND NOW, THANKS TO THE GENIUS OF YOURS TRULY,

I WILL ACTIVATE THE TRANSFORMATRON!

ACTUALLY, YOUR FATHER DESERVES EQUAL CREDIT, YOU KNOW.

WE DID DESIGN THIS TOGETHER.

NOT TO USE THIS WAY.

(EFFORT GRUNT)

A MINOR POINT. A MERE TECHNICALITY!

(EEL ZZT)

(ENERGY FFFFFT)

YES! IT WORKS!

IF ONLY I COULD MOVE MY FEET!

(EFFORT GRUNTS)

OH I LIKE THE FIREWORKS, BOSS.

YEAH! DOES IT DO ANYTHING ELSE?

HACKER: IT DOES IT ALL, MY BRAINLESS BOTS!

IT'S A DREAM MAKER!

NOW TELL ME,

IF YOU COULD BE ANYTHING YOU WANTED TO BE,

WHAT WOULD IT BE?

UM... A BIG BUNNY!

A GIANT DONUT!

HACKER: PERFECT!

LET'S SEE IF YOUR DREAMS CAN COME TRUE.

(EEL ZZZT, ENERGY BUZZES)

OH, THIS IS GOOD.

VERY, VERY GOOD!

(KISS)

NO ONE CAN STOP ME NOW!

(EVIL LAUGH)

WHAT?

COOP: HANG ON, SON!

SLIDER: KNARLY MOVE, DAD!

ALL RIGHT!

BUZZ! DELETE! STOP THEM!

BUZZ: (GROAN)

DELETE: GOT 'EM, BOSS!

A NOBLE EFFORT, COOP.

BUT IT'S TOO LATE TO SAVE SLIDER...

OR YOURSELF,

OR ANYONE, FOR THAT MATTER!

(EEL ZZZT, ENERGY BUZZES)

AT LAST!

(EVIL LAUGH)

DIGIT: YOIKES!

TELL ME THAT ISN'T WHAT I THINK IS!

(TRANSFORMED HACKER HEAVY FOOTSTEPS)

MATT AND JACKIE: IT'S HACKER!

(ENGINE BLAST SOUND)

INEZ: DON'T FEEL BAD, COOP. IT WAS A GOOD PLAN.

COOP: YEAH!

BUT I DIDN'T EXPECT TO BE CAUGHT BY A GIANT DONUT!

BIG IS GOOD, HUH, DEEDEE?

YEAH. ONLY I'M STARVING!

WISH I HAD SOME CARROTS.

DIGIT (DISGUISED VOICE): YOO-HOO! FREE CARROTS!

(SNIFFS) CARROTS? I WANT SOME!

(MUNCHES)

GET YOUR CARROTS! FRESH AND FREE!

JACKIE AND MATT: DIVE!

HUNH?

C'MON, GUYS! GIVE US A HAND!

MATT: COME ON, SLIDER. YOU CAN DO IT!

ALL: ONE, TWO, THREE... PUSH!

BUZZ: WHOA! WHOOOOAAA! WHOA! WHOA! WHOA!

DIGIT: NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL A DONUT ON A ROLL!

C'MON, WE'VE GOT A FORMULA TO MIX!

JACKIE: HANG IN THERE, SLIDER.

WE'RE GOING TO REVERSE YOUR DAMAGE.

AW, MAN!

MATT: THE CYBERFIELD DIDN'T WORK!

HE DIDN'T CHANGE BACK!

COOP, WE MEASURED EXACTLY!

WE GOT THE ORANGE BEAMY THING,

BUT SLIDER'S STILL GOT BIG FEET!

HOLD THIS NEAR HIM.

TELL ME WHAT IT SAYS.

IT'S FLASHING "FIVE!"

THE MAGNETITE CAUSED FIVE TIMES MORE DAMAGE THAN I THOUGHT!

YOU NEED TO MAKE THE FORMULA FIVE TIMES STRONGER

AND FAST!

SOLARIANS: (CRIES OF DISMAY)

HACKER: (EVIL CACKLE)

SOLARIANS: (SCREAMS)

JACKIE: FIVE TIMES STRONGER MEANS,

WE HAVE TO ADD FIVE TIMES AS MUCH OF EVERYTHING!

SO FOR MAGNETITE, WE NEED FIVE TIMES FOUR CYBERCUPS

OR TWENTY CUPS!

HERE'S ONE...

HERE'S TWO...

MATT: AH! THIS IS GONNA TAKE FOREVER!

THERE MUST BE A FASTER WAY TO MEASURE ALL THESE CUPS.

HM... WHAT WOULD BE FASTER

THAN DIPPING THIS MEASURE TWENTY TIMES?

DIPPING IT FEWER TIMES? FIVE.

YES! BUT TO DO THAT,

WE NEED A CUP THAT HOLDS MORE STUFF.

LIKE, UH... HOW MUCH MORE STUFF?

UM... TEN CUPS AT A TIME!

THEN WE'D ONLY HAVE TO DIP IT TWICE.

TWO TIMES TEN CYBERCUPS IS TWENTY!

THIS IS ALL I GOT! WILL THEY WORK?

ONLY IF ONE OF THEM HOLDS EXACTLY TEN CUPS

BECAUSE I ALREADY MEASURED OUT TEN CUPS OF MAGNETITE.

UH-UH. NO GOOD. TOO SMALL!

TRY THE OTHER ONE!

MATT: THIS ONE'S TOO BIG!

DIGIT: HOLD IT! IF THIS IS TEN CYBERCUPS OF MAGNETITE...

(CHAINSAW SOUND)

HERE'S A TEN CYBERCUP MEASURE!

EXACTAMENTO!

ALL RIGHT! LET'S WHIP UP SOME CURE!

SOLARIANS: (CRIES OF DISMAY)

(SKATERS MOAN)

THERE'S TEN CUPS... AND HERE'S ANOTHER,

FOR A TOTAL OF 20 CYBERCUPS OF MAGNETITE.

FOR KRISTINIUM, WE NEED FIVE TIMES SIX CYBERCUPS,

OR 30 CUPS.

THAT'S ONE... TWO...

THREE OF OUR TEN-CUP MEASURE, FOR A TOTAL OF 30!

AND FOR FRANCESIUM,

WE NEED FIVE TIMES SEVEN CYBERCUPS, OR 35.

HERE'S TEN...

20...

30! UH-OH.

WE NEED FIVE MORE CYBERCUPS OF FRANCESIUM, NOT TEN!

HOW CAN WE ADD FIVE

IF THE ONLY MEASURE WE HAVE IS FOR TEN?

IT'S NOT!

WE HAVE THIS ONE-CUP MEASURE, TOO!

COOL!

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS FILL IT FIVE TIMES

ADD IT TO THE 30 ALREADY IN THE BOWL,

AND WE'LL HAVE THE EXACT AMOUNT WE NEED.

DONE! FIVE CUPS PLUS THIRTY CUPS

GIVES US A TOTAL OF 35 CUPS OF FRANCESIUM!

ALL: IT WORKED! WE DID IT!

(ENERGY SOUNDS)

INEZ: COME ON, COME ON, WE MEASURED EXACTLY!

THIS HAS TO WORK.

(ENERGY SOUNDS)

HEY! YOU BROUGHT ME BACK.

THANKS, DUDES. I MEAN, REALLY.

INEZ AND DIGIT: YOU'RE WELCOME.

HEY, SLI. GOOD TO HAVE YOU BACK.

HACKER TRANSFORMED: I AM THE HACKER TRANSFORMED,

THE ULTIMATE RULER OF CYBERSPACE!

FROM NOW ON, CHAOS RULES!

(LAUGHTER)

COOP: THIS MACHINE WAS DESIGNED TO DO GOOD.

I GUESS WE'LL JUST HAVE TO DO THAT OURSELVES.

SLIDER: THE NETWORK INTERFACE CARD.

IT'S UP TO US TO MAKE SURE

IT DOESN'T FALL INTO THE WRONG HANDS.

BUZZ: AH! WHOA! AHH! OOF!

UH HEY!

(ENERGY SOUNDS)

BOTH: HUNH? WHAT HAPPENED?

NOOOO!

MATT: WE DID IT GUYS!

WE STOPPED HACKER IN HIS TRACKS!

NOW IT'S GET THIS EEL BACK TO AQUARI-YUM.

DIGIT: AND THE PEDESTAL TO PENGUIA!

SLI AND I ARE HEADING HOME.

WE'VE GOT TO FIND A WAY TO KEEP HACKER

FROM REBUILDING THE TRANSFORMATRON.

AND WORK UP ANOTHER CURE, RIGHT, POPS?

WELL, I GUESS IT'S GOODBYE, THEN.

NAH, JUST SO LONG.

WE'LL SEE YOU GUYS SOON...

UNTIL THEN.

KIDS: BYE!

JUST WAIT. I'LL BE BACK!

(EVIL LAUGH)
