Peter Platter is heading off to a "Disc Jock Convention", and asks the
Bugaloos to take over his show, in his absence. After a bit of coercing,
the Bugaloos accept. Benita, of course, wants to do the show herself, and
kidnaps Peter, then forces him to call the Bugaloos and tell them that
he's given the job to Benita, instead. The Bugaloos figure out that
something is wrong and head off to the jukebox to rescue Peter. I.Q.
dresses up as Benita Bizarre, and the rest of the Bugaloos imitate
Funky Rat, Woofer and Tweeter!

The new-song drought continues ... and this time, the footage used in this episode is exactly the same as the footage originally used in episode #4, although it's a tad shorter (since nobody gets struck by lightning in this episode. :-)) This is now the third episode in a row that doesn't have a new, full-length (for the Bugaloos, anyway) song. :-(
