Say Uncle Sam, the fourth episode of The Justice Friends, is the second segment of the tenth episode in season one of Dexter's Laboratory. It first aired on December 11, 1996.

In this episode, Major Glory forces Krunk and Valhallen to tidy up their apartment as Uncle Sam is coming to visit, but he goes overboard while doing so.


On Monday, Major Glory orders Valhallen and Krunk to assemble, but they are preoccupied with watching TV. Major Glory reminds them that they have been slacking with their superhero duties and remind them that Uncle Sam is coming to visit on Saturday. He then explains to them how Uncle Sam was strict to him as a child and wanted everything to be perfect. Adhering to his pleas, both Krunk and Valhallen head to the kitchen and respond to Major Glory's call, but get stuck in the doorway.

On Tuesday, Major Glory, Valhallen, and Krunk are drinking coffee. Major Glory orders them to drink their coffee while extending their pinkies. Valhallen is successful, but Krunk struggles. As Major Glory urges to do so, Krunk opens his pinky, flicking Major Glory away in the process.

On Wednesday, Major Glory helps Krunk walk straight while balancing a stack of books on his head. Krunk walks toward the fan, which hits Major Glory and knocks him off the books. On Thursday, Major Glory orders Krunk and Valhallen to clean up the messy apartment. Valhallen uses his ax to clean the living room with sound waves, Majory Glory does the dishes, and Krunk cleans his room by breaking the floor and dumping all of his furniture into the apartment below him.

On Friday, Major Glory has Valhallen dress as a famous baseball player and Krunk dress as a businessman. Finally, it is Saturday and Major Glory anticipates Uncle Sam's arrival. He has Valhallen and Krunk run through more practice drills. The two are fed up with Major Glory's overboating and beat him up, leaving the apartment a mess once more.

Valhallen lets Uncle Sam in, and to the Justice Friends' surprise, Uncle Sam is a hippie. Valhallen and Krunk immediately welcome him in, but Major Glory faints, to which Uncle Sam encourages him to chill.
