As Rallo gives a nickname to the new kid in school, a lice outbreak at school results in Donna finding out Rallo is infested. When her attempts to pick them out fail, she is forced to cut off his afro. When he is forced to face his classmates, he tries to camouflage his bald head with a wig but fails and picks up the nickname “Mr. Peanut.” He tries appealing to Donna but doesn't get any sympathy. He tries a series of hats but also fails to deflect his classmates teasing. As he mopes, Junior's perkiness surprises him and he learns Junior's secret for deflecting the constant teasing using his imagination. After some early reluctance he gets the hang of things and imagines himself in a space battle. After bonding with Junior, Rallo admits that he'll miss their adventures when his hair grows back, but as he sleeps, Junior shaves his head in the night to keep him bald...
