Henry and June Act 1
Henry&June Smell-O-Vision.jpg Henry and June are excited to be part of a groundbreaking new episode of KaBlam!, as they introduce "Smell-O-Vision." June explains that the latest KaBlamination technology will allow the viewers to smell any item that is placed up to the screen. Henry says when the viewers sees a large "SMELL NOW!" on the screen, that's their cue. Henry and June then hold up an extra large pane of glass to the screen which they take a whiff of as well. It's "fragrant and springtime fresh," just like the first cartoon, Sniz and Fondue.

Sniz and Fondue
Sniz&Fondue You Dummy.jpg

You Dummy!

Fondue is entertaining Sniz, Bianca and Snuppa with a puppet show with Battlestar Shapiro characters. Sniz says Fondue's visual storytelling really pulls him into a "crazy fantasy world where anything can happen." Fondue agrees that puppet shows are cool, but all he's wanted to be was a ventriloquist, adding the fact that ventriloquist dummies cost a lot of money. Sniz says he'll create one in his workshop. The next day, Sniz presents his creation to Fondue. Fondue says it's the greatest dummy he's ever seen and he calls Sniz the "funnest friend" a guy could ever have. Fondue performs with his new dummy, named Renee, in front of the rest of his housemates as Bianca criticizes that Fondue moves his mouth way too much and Snuppa says some things never change. Sniz comes into Fondue's room to help him rehearse, but Fondue thinks Sniz is implying that Renee and him are short on talent. Sniz thinks Fondue is losing it, but Fondue says he's "losing nothing, and he's Fondue the Fantabulous." Sniz, after storming out of Fondue's room, speaks in a high-pitched voice and Fondue thinks it was Renee talking to him. Fondue entertains at a birthday party and the children are criticizing him. Sniz at first thinks he should let Fondue bomb the performance, but speaks once again in a high-pitched voice and it surprises the children, however they are impressed that Fondue didn't open his mouth. Sniz has a new comic book he wants Fondue to read to him, but Fondue doesn't have time since he has to practice with Renee for their next gig and then they're off to Hollywood. Sniz comes clean about him using the high-pitched voice for Renee, but is accused of being jealous of the magic Fondue shares with Renee and he asks that can't one have a couple of funnest friends. Sniz says Fondue can't, and Renee is taken from his room into the workshop where Renee is threatened to be destroyed with a buzzsaw. Sniz stops after Fondue lets loose with his high-pitched voice. Sniz is impressed and says it was very "ventriloquist-like." Renee is damaged due to the buzzsaw, and Fondue says he can't use it for his next performance, but he and Sniz come up with a plan. At another party, Fondue uses Sniz as his dummy and it entertains the children.


Henry and June Act 2
Mr.Foot stretches Henry.jpg June says as a cartoon character, Fondue is incapable of feeling pain. She demonstrates this with Henry as their Sasquatch stagehand, Mr. Foot, assists. Henry is stretched out, dragged under Mr. Foot's armpit and turned into a ball before June says that's all for now, as Mr. Foot goes back to his spot on the set. June asks Henry if he experienced any actual pain. He says he did, before passing out. June slyly says she didn't feel a thing before turning the page to Action League Now!.

Action League Now!
Action League Now! Stink or Swim.jpg

Stink or Swim

In Swirly Reservoir (a typical toilet), a recreational swimmer is trapped but the Action League comes to the rescue. The swimmer prepares for the worst as he doesn't want those losers to help! Stinky Diver is about to dive in, as he hands off his wallet to Meltman. While the rest of the League cheers him on, Stinky becomes nauseous as he looks down at the toilet. However, it's too late as the swimmer drowns. Back at Action Headquarters, Stinky is upset over his mistake just as an "action fax" comes in about a boating accident at Aquarium Lake. The Chief says he and the rest of the League need Stinky's help, but he's still down in the dumps. Thundergirl recommends a pick-me-up, and the Flesh complies by tossing him towards the mission. In Aquarium Lake, two citizens are drowning after their boat tips over. Stinky again asks Meltman to hold his wallet and looks down to the water, getting nauseous. He says he can't do it, so Meltman complains that now someone else has to get in, being tossed into the water by the Flesh. The League considers their mission successful by rescuing the boat, fishing rods and "hats," but they leave behind the citizens, who drown. Later that day, Bill the Lab Guy is counseling Stinky and asks him to recall days of his childhood that would cause him to freeze up like a gutless weasel in the face of danger. Stinky says there was a day at Swirly Reservoir with his long-lost brother, Stench Diver, as they were fishing until Stench fell into the toilet. Stinky wanted to save Stench, but no one was around to hold his wallet. Stench's words "Thanks a lot, you big chicken!" still haunt Stinky to the current day. Bill says he doesn't see any connection and there's nothing he can do. Back at the reservoir, the Action League restages the botched rescue. Meltman says there needs to be someone to play the victim, and the Flesh tosses him into the toilet. The League cheers on Stinky, but it may be too late as Meltman drowns. Stinky says that's that, and makes an offer to go eat. Thundergirl refuses and says he may be a "spineless sissy boy" but he's no quitter, and she'll hold his wallet, before Stinky realizes Meltman was holding it all this time, and he dives into the toilet! Thundergirl, the Chief and the Flesh play Go Fish as they await the outcome. Shortly after, Meltman, the recreational swimmer and Stench are rescued. Stench and Stinky share a hug after 20 years of being apart. Meltman offers to celebrate and he'll buy. The Flesh is surprised, but Stinky says it's no mystery as Meltman still has his wallet as everyone laughs.


Henry and June Act 3
Henry&June Toilet Pumping.jpg June is struggling to plunge something out of the toilet, as Henry walks in and asks what she's doing. June is trying to rescue her long-lost brother, but Henry says her brother isn't stuck in the toilet and doesn't even have one at all! June thinks there's something in the toilet regardless, as it's all backed up, as an annoyed Henry takes over for her. He pulls up Mr. Foot, who then takes him back down into the toilet. June realizes Henry was right about not having a brother, but now has to rescue her co-host. Meanwhile, she asks the viewers to take the plunge to Life with Loopy.

Life with Loopy
Loopy 20000 Leagues under the Sofa.jpg

20,000 Leagues Under the Sofa

Larry shows off his lucky baseball, "360 degrees of cross-stitch, horse-eyed perfection" which he caught during a playoff game, and hasn't let it out of his sight. But just the week before, something terrible happened as he lost it! Loopy discusses with Larry the last times he was with it, such as when he was sleeping in bed, taking a shower and watching a baseball game on television. Loopy figures out that it got lost in the sofa, and starts digging out items that are in it, including a toy bunny, wrench, bowling ball and tiki mask. Eventually, she falls into the sofa and meets two miners that explain everything that falls into sofas around the world conjoin into one area. The miners' job is to dig it all out, keeping the good stuff and the bad stuff is sent to the recycling center, the latter turned into molten planet fuel as they say "that's what makes the world go 'round." Loopy says she's looking for Larry's lucky baseball, and the miners recall it is in the recycling center, with t-minus 45 seconds until it becomes planet fuel. They recommend Loopy takes the elevator, but it's slow until she asks for it to go faster, which it does. T-minus 10 seconds until the center's daily meltdown, and Loopy grabs the baseball in time. She returns it to Larry, despite him complaining about it being scorched up. Larry admits that he should have been a little more grateful, as Loopy makes sure he'll never lose it again, by socking it in his mouth.


Henry and June Act 4
Henry&June Statue.jpg June is immortalizing Henry in marble. She chisels a abstract-style statue of him, called "Hen," but he complains that it looks nothing like him. June ponders for a moment, then agrees, before redecorating Henry so that he looks like the statue. June says it's nothing short of a masterpiece, just like the next segment, The Off-Beats.

The Off-Beats
The Off-Beats Intro.jpg

Too Much Attention for September

September is attempting to relax, but is asked if he wants to ride in August's helicart, which September turns down the offer. Betty Anne Bongo looks on at him, all by his lonesome, and she says he needs someone to play with. September whistles as he casually walks away from her as well as Tommy and Repunzil. September, still attempting to relax, is visited by Betty Anne Bongo who wants to play bongos together. She plays her part, before telling him to "take it," where he hits the bongos once, telling her to "take it back" and he walks away. August is showing off his airborne helicart to September, who acknowledges it before finding another spot to relax. Tommy visits him, saying "bow-wow," before accidentally yelling at September the third time. Frightened, he walks away and finds yet another spot to relax. Repunzil visits September and pats him on the head as well as scratching his back and belly, which he doesn't like and runs away from her. She engages in a "puppy chase" with him, and he runs into Betty Anne Bongo and Tommy at the same time. August shows up in his helicart, and September leaps into it. With Betty Anne Bongo, Tommy and Repunzil all waving to him from down below, he can finally relax.


Henry and June Act 5
Henry&June fly off!.jpg As Henry says farewell to the viewers, June, with a little inspiration from the helicart in The Off-Beats, tears a page in the comic book to create a paper airplane, but Henry is concerned about the collectors value. With Mr. Foot's help, they "ride like the wind," away from the comic book and into the sunset.
