Jeepers, Creepers, Where Is Peepers is the first segment of the twelfth episode in season 3 of Dexter's Laboratory. It first aired on July 12, 2002.

In this episode, Peepers, the king of Koosland and Koosy's pet dog, is kidnapped. As a result, Koosland falls into ruin and Peepers falls into the hands of Hookocho, an evil alien warlord. Koosy teams up with Dexter to go and save him.


Koosy and Dee Dee seek help from Dexter once Koosy's dog Peepers gets taken away and Koosland becomes endangered.


Dee Dee and Koosy are playing catch with a ball in Koosland laughing and having loads of fun, and Koosy's pet dog Peepers is on the picnic blanket by them. He tells them to shut up and they think he's being a grouch. He tells them that he can't sleep with them playing. When Peepers lies down to take a nap, a mysterious figure takes him away.

Koosland starts falling apart by a huge storm of evil forming over the skies. Dee Dee asks what's going on and Koosy tells her the story. He says that Koosland was created back when Dee Dee was just a dumb little baby; she made Peepers, the person who holds Koosland together, and now that he's gone, Koosland is doomed unless he returns.

Dee Dee has the idea to turn to Dexter and ask for his help but automatically, Dexter isn't allowing it. Koosy gets ahold of the Robo-Dexo 2000 and goes off to Koosland, but before he can go through the portal Dexter chases after and quickly goes in there with him to get his robot back, leaving Dee Dee behind.

When Dexter gets into Koosland, Koosy convinces him to help them save Koosland, which brings Dexter into a heated rant about how saving an imaginary dimension is no excuse for stealing his equipment. But, when he sees a family of Sugar Wompums die, Dexter starts to cry in grief, which convinces him to go with Koosy to save the land.

After that, they use Robo-Dexo to fly through space and find where Peepers is. They have to fight some robot troops, and when they find where he is, they find themselves in an evil space lair with an evil anime mastermind named Hookocho, 'the Prince of Pain and Misery'. He is holding Peepers captive inside of his lair, so Dexter and Koosy attempt to fight him to set Peepers free; though, they fail to do so, as Hookocho zaps them in place with his electric magic.

When Hookocho is just about to destroy Dexter and Koosy, Peepers turns into a giant dragon and squishes him. They return Peepers to normal, and all end off the story happily ever after with Koosy's theme song he made up for him and Dexter beforehand.
