TV Super Pals is the first episode of The Justice Friends. It is the second part of the seventh episode of season one in Dexter's Laboratory. In this episode, Major Glory's appearance on the local news, the monster truck pull that Valhallen is interested in, and Krunk's favorite TV show T.V. Puppet Pals all come on at 5:30. This causes a conflict between the three, as they all can't decide what to watch.


The episode begins with the Disgruntled Postman breaking out of a postal store and putting a stamp on a nuclear bomb that he is going to mail to the president. Just then, Major Glory flies down and gives him a beating. He saves the day and the newscast all come up to him and interview him about his heroic save. Major Glory makes a joke about having to fill out a change of address form. The newscasters don't laugh, but Major Glory laughs hysterically. Then Major Glory asks them when they are going to be showing this. They tell him the time and he rushes home so he can watch this on TV.

Then scene goes the the Minotaur who has captured the sirens who he is going to use to take over the world. Then, Valhallen busts in and gets ready to save the day. Then, the Minotaur becomes happy to see him and wants his autograph. Valhallen gives him an autograph and then tells him to let the sirens go, to which Minotaur agrees. Then he rushes home to see the monster truck pull.

The next scene shows Krunk trying to save a little girl's cat who got stuck in a tree. Krunk is throwing objects like a ball, a shoe and finally a car at the cat but he keeps on missing. Eventually, Krunk gets mad and starts jumping up and down. The cat falls out of the tree and lands on Krunk's head. The little girl's mom calls telling her that TV Puppet Pals is about to come on. The little girl and Krunk get excited. The girl goes home and Krunk heads home too.

Major Glory and Valhallen get home before Krunk but they can't find the key to the door. Then, they hear Krunk stomping and bouncing down the hallway. Major Glory and Valhallen quickly start looking for the key to the door but they can't find it and they hear Krunk getting closer. Valhallen finds the key and tries to stick it in the lock but he is too late. Krunk comes by and smashes them both and the door down.

Major Glory wants to watch the news, Valhallen wants to watch the monster truck show, and Krunk wants the watch the puppet pals show. Major Glory and Valhallen get into a fight over who gets to see their show while Krunk watches the TV Puppet Pals. Then, Major Glory and Valhallen break the TV and Krunk gets really furious.

In the end, Krunk forces Major Glory and Valhallen to put on a show as Puppet Pal Valhallen and Puppet Pal Major Glory with their heads inside the now broken TV while he sat back and relaxed laughing at them.
