The Terrible Twos
Dak and his best friend Eddie were both teenage slackers who hung around the Slurb and Lube Store. One day, they were kicked out by Kellaway who stated that the store was no library. They both decided to get revenge on Kellaway by going to a nuclear plant with a bug so they could be mutated just like their idol Insector the Bugman. Dak and Eddie went to the nuclear plant and got themselves radioactive, but realized that neither of them had the bug and fainted. An ambulance arrives and drives the two teenagers to the hospital. On the way, the ambulance crashed, causing the two to fly on their stretchers.
After falling into a spackle shop, Dak mutates into a putty monster, while Eddie falls into an aquarium, mutating into a fish. However. while Dak gains various powers from his putty body Eddie is stuck as a regular fish with no real powers, something that causes a rift between the two friends, so Dak decides to cheer up Eddie by destroying whatever he says to. The police arrive to deal with them but Putty Thing managed to defeat them with ease. Stanley, who was cuffed with Kellaway at the time, has to find ways to distract Kellaway in order to put the Mask to fight the villains. At the end, Putty Thing captures Kellaway and lets Stanley escape, allowing him to finally put on the Mask. Threatening to cook Fish Guy, the Mask convinces Putty Thing to set Kellaway free, after which he uses Canola oil to melt him and trap him in a large jar.
Putty Thing and Fish Guy escape from jail, so Putty Thing decides to take a trip to a beach where Fish Guy could be at his element. Meanwhile, they are chased down by The Mask, while both Kellaway and a group of FBI agents searching for martians are on their tail as well. Despite all odds the two reach the beach, but unfortunately not only Fish Guy can't swim, Putty Thing's body becomes unstable in contact with the salt water, resulting in the two being captured again.
