<-- Previous EpisodeNext Episode -->
Tic Track Toe: The episode begins with Lucky, Rolly, Cadpig and Spot, who are watching television when they see a commercial on how Go-Go, the fastest dog in the world, will be racing at Cruella’s nearby racetrack. Rolly, Cadpig and Lucky make a comment on how they dig, love and worship Go-Go, respectively, though when the commercial tells them to go to the racetrack to see Go-Go, they decide to do just that and the scene changes to the facility. Horace and Jasper are seen entering through the main gate, though Lucky points his friends to a broken board in the fence, so the Dalmatians all sneak though, despite the fact that Rolly breaks the board in his endeavors. The scene then changes to show Horace and Jasper placing a small wager on Go-Go’s victory, though Cruella rushes up, shoves them aside, and places a million dollars on Go-Go’s victory, as she’s certain he’s going to win. The scene changes to the racetrack, where Go-Go is carried in by four other dogs in a regal transport, though Horace, Jasper and Cruella make comments from their booths about how they’re hoping to win their bets; the scene changes to the left, where Cadpig is seen opening a compartment on the roof and the Dalmatians plan to watch the race from inside of a building. The three Dalmatians each make a comment to express their admiration of Go-Go, though Spot makes a remark saying that he’s just a dog, though Lucky reminds her that he is his hero and that he isn’t like any other dog. The scene changes back to the racetrack, where an elderly employee is in the process of preparing the track bunny so that the dogs can chase it to race, though he inadvertently spills his drink on the bunny and he runs away when sparks start to fly out of it. The race begins and the rabbit shoots off, though Go-Go becomes hesitant because he fears something is wrong with the track bunny; though, when the track bunny shoots into the air, Go-Go continues the race, only to be hit by it when it returns to the earth, which also causes him to lose the race. Horace, Jasper and Cruella express their anger about losing from the sidelines, though Lucky and his friends are more concerned over the fact that their idol has lost the race. The scene changes to show Cruella attempting to convince the gamblers that they shouldn’t stop betting merely because Go-Go lost, though when she’s unsuccessful in her endeavor, she becomes depressed over the fact that she’s lost money and the scene changes to a barn where Go-Go is resting in.
The Dalmatians appear at the entrance to the barn and Lucky expresses uncertainty about what they should say to their loser hero, though Cadpig assures him that they’ll think of something. They head further inside and they confront Go-Go, who is deeply distraught over the fact that his career is over; Rolly reminds him that he’s only lost one race and Spot mentions that they’re not going to destroy the facility over one loss, though just as she says that, Cruella is heard ordering a demolition crew to destroy the building. However, Horace and Jasper run in the way of the machinery and they persuade Cruella to give Go-Go one more chance to race, as they don’t want to see the racetrack get destroyed as it’s the place where they lose their hard-earned money. Cruella decides to permit one more race later that afternoon, which causes Lucky and his friends to decide to encourage Go-Go by saying all he has to do is win one race; though Go-Go confesses that he can no longer race, since he’s afraid of bunnies, specifically the track bunny that is supposed to help him keep his focus during the race. The Dalmatians begin to express doubt over what they should do, since Go-Go obviously isn’t in any position to race, though Spot expresses that they should try helping him; Rolly once again points out that they’re just normal dogs and that they can’t help a legend such as Go-Go, though Cadpig agrees with Spot and she encourages her brothers to do what they can to help cure Go-Go of his rabbit-phobia. The scene changes to a room where Cadpig has gathered a bunch of animals, as she believes that through working together as a group, they can help Go-Go overcome his fear of bunnies. She introduces a dog named Fetch, who is afraid of sticks, and a sheep-dog who is afraid of sheep, in which the animals in the room accept their fears openly and they welcome them into the group. However, when Go-Go steps up and tells the room that he’s afraid of bunnies, they all burst into laughter, causing him to spiral into depression; though the scene changes to show Lucky’s attempts to help cure Go-Go. He brings out several ink-blot cards and he asks Go-Go what he sees, in which Go-Go replies that he sees a post-nuclear holocaust and the horror of all the wars in the century, though when Lucky brings out an ink-blot of a rabbit, Go-Go flips out and he runs away in fear, mowing through and breaking a fence in the process.
The scene changes to show Rolly attempting to calm Go-Go by using candy bunnies to show just how weak and defenseless they are, though when he constantly consumes the candy bunnies before he can finish his session, he goes into a fit and falls backwards. Cadpig comes out and she tells Go-Go that Rolly is having some bunny problems of his own, which causes the scene to change once again. Go-Go is seen standing next to Spot and he is wearing a pair of bunny ears; Spot tells him that they’re going to try role-playing and that he’s now a racetrack bunny, though when she asks him how he feels, he short-circuits and he is sent flying up into the air. The scene changes to Go-Go’s barn, where Cadpig is dressed up in a bunny costume and she proceeds to jump into the air and taunt Go-Go for being afraid of her; Go-Go begins to growl and backs up, though when Cadpig follows him, he attacks her off-screen, which causes her brothers to look away in shock. After the mauling ends, Cadpig comes back on screen, albeit torn up, and she expresses that Go-Go is now cured of his rabbit-phobia shortly before she passes out. The scene changes to the racetrack, where Horace, Jasper and Cruella are standing outside of the voting booth; Jasper tells Cruella that the odds on Go-Go are a trillion to one, which entices her to give them a dollar to bet in her name, though when she walks off, Horace tells Jasper that they should keep the dollar since Go-Go is obviously going to lose the race anyway. The scene changes to the actual racetrack and the race is getting ready to begin, though when the elderly employee makes the same mistake he once did, Go-Go starts to panic and he buries himself, as the track bunny is going to do what it once did. Lucky tells his friends that he has to do something in order to save Go-Go, so he rushes down to the track and he removes the track bunny, though he finds himself as the replacement track bunny when he’s sent flying down the track at high speeds. Go-Go realizes what Lucky did and he unburies himself, in which he proceeds to race down the track and he manages to win the race, blowing out his nearest competitors. Lucky tells Go-Go that he’s his hero, though Go-Go replies by saying he’s a pretty good hero himself; the scene changes to show Cruella ecstatic about having won a trillion dollars, so she confronts Horace and Jasper in order to tell them how much she loves gambling and how much she loves them for winning her the money. However, when Horace and Jasper tell her that they didn’t actually bet the dollar, Cruella expresses that she despises them and the episode ends with her chasing Horace and Jasper around the track in an attempt to get revenge.
Lucky All Star: The episode begins in Roger’s office, where Roger is working on an advertisement jingle for a store that sells model planes, trains, boats and cars. However, Lucky and Cadpig barge into his office through the pet-door that he had installed there, in which the two of them are playing a game and Cadpig is trying to run away from Lucky, who is trying to catch her. They run around his office, knocking down various objects and using the scenery in order to try to excel one another, though when they crash into another, causing them to crash into Roger, they inadvertently unplug his keyboard and they send him and his chair crashing to the ground. Cadpig attempts to run away, though Roger grabs onto her and he scolds her, claiming she isn’t allowed to get near his computer that the jingle was his first paid job in three weeks. Roger then grabs Lucky and he makes a remark about his involvement in the issue as well, though when Lucky begins to pout, Roger says that he can’t stay made at him and that he’s his favorite Dalmatian, which causes Cadpig to express discontent to herself. The scene changes to the barn, where the Dalmatians are watching television as Roger is climbing onto his tractor so that he can farm his land, though when a commercial comes up for an upcoming bone-digging contest, it catches Roger’s attention and he starts to watch it as well. The commercial is for a bone-digging contest where the winner will receive a twenty-five percent discount on flea collars for an entire year. After the commercial, Cadpig expresses that she hopes Roger will select her, since she’d love to have the trophy, though Spot expresses that she’d like to participate just for the honor. Rolly tells her that Roger will select a dog, rather than a chicken, though he also expresses that he has the best nose to find bones and that he should be selected. Lucky reminds his friends that Roger only has one favorite and that he’s going to be the one selected, though Cadpig expresses discontent towards his ego by saying she would hurt him if it wasn’t for her desires for world peace. Tripod gets up and he makes his way outside, as he says he wants to go practice digging to improve upon his chances of being selected, though when he asks the rest of the Dalmatians if they want to come with him, Lucky declines, as he believes he has connections and that he will be selected even without training. The scene changes to show Lucky and his friends heading towards Hiccup Hole, as they want to enjoy their evening, though they stop on a hill when Spot falls into a hole. Cadpig notices that the entire hillside is full of holes, though Spot climbs out of the hole she fell into and she expresses that she feels like she has whiplash.
At that moment, Roger is heard whistling and the scene changes to show him riding his tractor their way, in which he expresses that he wants to ask Lucky something. Lucky tells his friends that this is his moment and that Roger is going to ask him to go to the bone-digging contest, though the scene changes back to Roger and it shows him driving his tractor into one of the many holes in the vicinity. Roger drives his tractor up and down many holes, until he eventually plows underneath the ground and the tractor comes to a stop at the hole Spot had previously fallen in. Roger and the Dalmatians climb off the tractor and Roger makes a comment on the wonderful holes; Rolly tells Lucky that he has some competition, though he shrugs it off and he attempts to get Roger’s attention by performing a trick. However, a bone is suddenly tossed up from the hole and it hits Lucky, knocking him backwards, all the while ensuring Roger’s attention remain on what it is that is inside of the hole. Along with the bone that hit Lucky, several hundred other bones are also sent up into the air, as well as a bunch of haystacks that build an igloo around the bones. Some gardening equipment is sent flying up from the hole next, along with a tricycle, a motorcycle, a truck, and a troupe of gophers. Finally, a bunch of dinosaur bones are sent flying up from the hole and they land in a fashion that creates a perfectly formed tyrannosaurus rex. Lucky gets frightened by the dinosaur’s bones and he runs towards the hole, where Rolly, Cadpig and Spot realize that Tripod was responsible for digging the holes and they compliment him on his work. Lucky attempts to gain Roger’s affection by performing another trick, though when Roger ignores him, he goes to dig up a hole and he pulls out a horseshoe; though when he brings it to Roger, Roger ignores him in favor of Tripod, and Tripod is selected to go with him to the bone-digging contest, much to Lucky’s chagrin. The scene changes back to the barn, where a storm is seen approaching overhead. Inside of the barn, Lucky tells his friends that something isn’t right and that the real Roger must have been abducted by aliens, or something along those lines. Cadpig tells him that Roger is getting ready to leave with Tripod, causing Lucky to head to the window, where he continues to express his disgust. Spot tells him that the reason Tripod was selected was because he worked hard and earned the position, as he proved he was better at bone-digging, though Lucky says that he didn’t even try, so he may actually be the better bone-digger. Spot tells him that such is the root of the problem, though when he heads towards the back of the barn confident that Roger is playing a joke on him, he hears an engine starting and Rolly, Cadpig and Spot say good-bye to Tripod and they wish him luck.
Realizing that he can’t let Tripod take his place as Roger’s favorite, Lucky makes a mad dash towards the window and he clings onto the back of Roger’s car, which makes its way towards the bone-digging contest. After the car drives a little way, the storm breaks out and it starts to downpour, which causes Roger to press a button on his car and its hood comes up; Lucky, whom was holding onto the hood, is sent flying to the front of the car and he grabs onto the windshield wiper. Roger makes a comment to himself about how, with the discount, he’ll save one-hundred and one dollars when buying flea collars, though he soon notices that Lucky is on his windshield wipers and he proceeds to try to grab Lucky in order to bring him to safety. However, in doing such, Roger lets go of the wheel and Tripod grabs control of it in order to prevent them from crashing, though after several dangerous turns, the car is eventually sent down a cliff and it lands right in the middle of a large mud puddle. The three of them get out of the car and Roger tells Tripod that he’s saved all of them, though Lucky merely makes a snide remark towards Tripod for his actions. At that moment, the storm lets up and sunshine emerges, though Roger expresses that since the car is stuck in the mud, they won’t make it to the bone-digging contest on time. Tripod decides to do what he can to help Roger and he proceeds to dig the mud around the car to try to permit the car to move, though he asks Lucky for help; Lucky jumps near him, though he only berates and insults Tripod for his inability to get to the bone-digging contest, as he won’t be able to become Roger’s favorite. Tripod expresses confusion about what Lucky is talking about as he expresses he merely wanted to win the contest, though he won’t get the chance to know if he would win now that they’re stuck. Lucky tells him that he would definitely win, since he works so hard and wins at everything he does, though when his comments only depress Tripod because he can’t attend the contest, Lucky realizes that Tripod truly had no interest in replacing him as Roger’s favorite and that he’s been a complete jerk to him. Lucky decides to make amends for his actions and he helps Tripod dig to get Roger’s car out of the mud, though even with the help of some wood that Roger placed underneath the car, they find it difficult to push the car out. Lucky refuses to give up, however, and the determination and teamwork of he and Tripod eventually gets the car out of the mud and the two brothers get into the car and the scene changes to Pete Peterson’s bone-digging contest. Tripod is seen competing with another dog, in which many bones are sent flying up into the air, though Lucky takes notice that Tripod is lagging behind since he’s tired. Roger and Lucky proceed to give Tripod words of encouragement and Tripod manages to catch up and win in the final moments. The episode ends with Roger making a celebratory comment and he kneels over Tripod, in which Lucky congratulates him, though Tripod tells Lucky that he couldn’t have done it without his help, and the scene fades to black as Roger tells the crowd that he’ll buy flea collars for them in celebration.
