Storyline

The Mads kick off the invention exchange with "tank tops", actually tank turrets worn around the mid-section while Joel introduces the Tickle Bazooka. Then Joel and the 'bots are forced to watch a swingin' 60s caper comedy called "Catalina Caper", all about a group of beach party teens who foil a plot by a group of international crooks looking to steal a valuable scroll.
