Henry and June Act 1
19.png Henry and June want the viewers to make KaBlam! their new favorite show by taking requests. June reads the first one telling Henry to put his hand on his face, so June can slap him (she sent that request to herself). Henry reads another request that wants them to go away because they want cartoons. This dissatisfies Henry and June, as June says they're cartoons, but Henry finds out it means "other cartoons." With that said, they try to give it to the viewer by showing another cartoon not related to them, Sniz and Fondue.

Sniz and Fondue

Stuntbike Sniz

Sniz visits Motorama Rama, wanting to get a very powerful motorcycle so everyone can see him as Stuntbike Sniz. He finds one and names it "Gretchen." While Sniz is riding around the motorcycle, Bianca tells Fondue that Sniz is doing stunts, causing Fondue to get concerned. Outside, Sniz tries to jump ramps in between a cupcake and a pizza box before Fondue inadvertently inspires Sniz to jump the house next. Sniz builds a large ramp and it attracts local media as well as the neighborhood. Sniz gets ready to jump, but Fondue berates the onlookers, only to be stopped by purchasing Stuntbike Sniz merchandise. Sniz attempts a jump of the house, but crashes through the windows and ends up crashing into the trees before landing. He goes unharmed, which causes the neighborhood to cheer. While Sniz tries to tell the media that stunting is not for everyone, the motorcycle shakes and then collapses on him. Fondue, now at Rudolph Shanker Memorial Hospital, brings a newspaper to Sniz with himself on the cover, making him very happy.


Henry and June Act 2
Episode 2 Act 2 Scene 1.jpg Henry tells the viewers if they think Sniz laughs in the face of danger, then they should get a load of June, who is about to perform a chair stunt. Henry says not to try at home, as June is a "professional comic book character." When Henry says "chair!" it only tips over, and then a parachute opens up. Henry calls that "a tip of the stumper" and tells the viewers to brace themselves for action, as Action League Now! is next.

Action League Now!
No Fly Zone.png

No Fly Zone

In Dirty Kitchen Industrial Park, Thundergirl is flying around on routine patrol, but the Mayor shoots a liquid onto her and she falls into a glass jar. With Thundergirl out of the way, the Mayor can move forward with his evil plan, after he kidnapped two children. In a delicate rescue operation, the Action League rescues Thundergirl in the jar as the Flesh smashes the glass. The Chief asks Thundergirl what went wrong, which she explains a liquid made her crash. Stinky Diver thinks it was because she was singing her "stupid" theme song again, and Meltman ponders who is responsible, before a brick lands on him. The brick features a ransom note, and it's from the Mayor. Unless his demands are met (delivering 2.3 jillion dollars to his Eagle Landing estate by 3 o'clock), the children he has kidnapped will suffer a nasty end. Thundergirl assures the Chief that she can handle it, but as she attempts to fly, she falls to the ground. The Chief realizes with Thundergirl sidelined, the League has as much chance "as a sled dog at a demolition derby." At the Eagle Landing estate (actually just a birdhouse on a pole) in which the Mayor with the two children are in, the Mayor is satisfied that his evil plan is going as expected, until he gets kicked after the children taped a "Kick Me" sign onto his back. As time ticks away, the League tries to see if balloons will work for Thundergirl. She goes airborne with them, singing her theme song in celebration, but flies above the birdhouse which distracts the Mayor as he is about to tie up the children, and then gets his right arm ripped off. Thundergirl wants to get down after floating above the birdhouse, but Stinky uses his spear gun to pop the balloons, and Thundergirl crashes down to the ground. Frustrated, she fails before the League listens in on the Mayor's fit of rage, using a shaver to threaten the children. In one last attempt, the League fits Thundergirl into a slingshot, and she hits the birdhouse, tipping it over. As the League look inside, they see the children now torturing the Mayor with the shaver. Thundergirl is able to fly again, as she sings her theme song, but then lands onto a power line and crashes to the ground, wearily continuing to sing.


Henry and June Act 3
Episode 2 Act 3 Scene 1.jpg As June lists abilities of some of the Action League members — Thundergirl flies and the Flesh is super strong — she doesn't get the point of Meltman but he can withstand temperatures in excess of 10,000 degrees, according to Henry. June calls him a "dink," as Henry says that's his fatal flaw, which all superheroes have at least one. She then comes up with an invincible and strong superhero named Barbara Schecter. Henry scoffs at it, but ends up upsetting Barbara Schecter who stuffs him up her nose. Henry then changes his mind where he says it is a "KaBlamarific" name. Barbara Schecter then turns the page to Prometheus and Bob.

Prometheus and Bob

Tape #25: Clothing

Prometheus is seen putting clothing on Bob, and then shows a mirror to Bob. This causes Bob to get scared and run away. Prometheus is then seen trying to get Bob to the mirror, but the Monkey screeches Bob out. Bob is now smooching the mirror until Prometheus puts a hat on. The Monkey is now trying to steal some clothing from Prometheus, but this causes Prometheus to fall and become unconscious. Bob also eats the hat. Bob tries on Prometheus's spacesuit, but the Monkey, now in a lab coat with a skull head, scares Bob (and Prometheus).

Wheel.png

Tape #17: Wheel

Bob tries to rolls a wheel but ends up crashing it into the spaceship. Prometheus grabs parts of a unicycle from his now broken spaceship and throws it to Bob, but Bob ducks under them, and the Monkey builds it and rides on it. Prometheus is still trying to teach Bob, but the Monkey is causing some disturbance. Prometheus freezes the Monkey, and Bob rolls it away. Now that Bob knows how to roll a monkey, he rolls the wheel to the camera. While Prometheus is trying to fix the camera, Bob is rolling the spaceship, in which they go after. However, the spaceship is now chasing after them, and the Monkey bashes it into the camera.


Henry and June Act 4
Episode 2 Act 4 Scene 1.jpg Henry and June are seen in a whirlpool-like atmosphere, which turns out to be them flying between a fan and a running laundry machine. Henry says sitting in front of a washer with a fan on is like watching KaBlam!, but thinks something is missing (while finding his missing underwear), which turn out to be helmets. They both try to use things like a jar and sheep until June picks a piano. She throws it up, but it comes crashing down on her. June says that was not very smart and Henry administers first aid to her with a bag of ice before Life with Loopy starts.

Life with Loopy
Trouble With Inflation.png

Trouble with Inflation

Larry introduces the rest of the family; his sister Loopy, and their parents. Larry says that Dad is a laid back kind of guy, except when it comes to bills, in which he gets very angry. To Loopy, it seems to be from the mailman's icy heart, and when it comes to melting icy hearts, Larry calls her a regular "blowtorch." Loopy tries to be nice to the mailman with a song, but before she finishes, he hands the bills out. On the next day, Loopy gets busy, figuring if the mailman wasn't going to respond to genuine love and kindness, she'd have to appeal to a more primitive emotion — fear — by making the house "haunted." Loopy dresses as a zombie but the mailman, once again, is unfazed and needs a signature from her before handing more bills over. Dad screams as the haunted part of the house crashes down. Switching gears, Loopy inflates the house to get away from the mailman. Larry says life would go by surprisingly smoothly for the next few days and the television would get great reception as Mom watches a show. Dad is very relaxed, hanging out with the kids in the kitchen. Suddenly, the mailman knocks on the window and is seen on a bicycle-propeller hybrid and gives them more bills. Dad screams again, enough to cause him to float to the ceiling, and the house deflates. With all of the past attempts gone wrong, Larry thought Loopy would have given up, but she sends a friendly letter on top of the bills, which makes Dad happy.


Henry and June Act 5
Episode 2 Act 5 Scene 1.jpg June acknowledges that Loopy can make a house fly, but can't jump very high on a couch. Henry begs for June to get down since they have work to do. June will comply, as long as the rest of the pages are turned by her. Henry tries to interject, but June overrules, boasting about her higher score on the page-turning test. June asks Henry if they have a deal, and lying through his teeth, he agrees to it. She prepares to turn the page, but Henry bids the viewers farewell, since it was the last page of the comic book. This upsets June, and she tries to beat up Henry.

  • After Loopy inflates the house, it is different than normal:

    • When it is deflating, the garage is missing.
