Down the Drain
The Joyco Toy Company has heard about George and his Zoopercar and they want to market it as their newest toy. But George isn't interested in selling his prized mode of transportation. Afterall, he and his dad built it together and no one can take that special bond away from him. But two Joyco toy employees, Barry and Steve, have other plans. If George won't sell it to them, they will just have to take it, which they do. But once their boss, Big Ed Easy finds out that George has been swindled out of his Zoopercar, he promptly returns it.
- This episode includes a flashback in which George remembers how he and his dad built the Zoopercar.
- This is the first appearance of Mayor Wigglesworth.
