Claire and Suzanne are producing a "McGuffy Special" edition of their magazine. A protest rally is planned, with banners painted in secret. While preparations for the protest continue, Mrs McClusky has in the meantime reinstated Mr. McGuffy. Stewpot and Duane follow Pogo to find his girlfriend's identity - but he's on to them, and leads them a merry dance. Jonah ruins the banner he was working on, by making the letters too wide, but there's a more severe problem - the main school doors are locked. Jonah hides aboard a milk float and gains entry into the school, and while the staff think the protest is going in the expected entrance, another set of kids enter by the other entrance. To the staff's surprise, Jonah lets in the "Scruffy" protesters. Mrs. McClusky plays her trump card - the appearance of Mr. McGuffy. Stewpot and Duane finally catch Pogo with his girlfriend - she's a St Mary's girl! Written by Geffers
