"Bad Apple!"

"The Thingy!" is the second episode of the second season of The Aquabats! Super Show!, although it was aired fourth.


On the road home from a snowy ski trip, The Aquabats encounter a body-snatching alien set on turning them into spaceship fuel. Crash evades capture and must overcome his fears to save his friends.


While returning home from a relaxing ski vacation, The Aquabats get trapped in a snow embankment and are forced to spend the night without power in the Battletram. In an overt parody of the 1982 film The Thing, a malicious alien lifeform sneaks aboard the vehicle and begins assimilating (and thus imitating) The Aquabats one by one as part of a plot to melt them down into rocket fuel. Successfully evading capture, Crash must learn to overcome his fears and rescue his pals from certain doom.



Origin StoryEdit

Crash remembers how he met the other The Aquabats "on his first day of public school" (quoting the band's 2000 song "Pizza Day!").

Lil Bat CartoonEdit

Lil Bat discovers that his soda burps allow him to levitate into the air, soon carrying him into space, after some confrontations with a bird, a jet plane, and an alien.
