Synopsis

Johnny practices in his obstacle course, then thinks back on his adventures with The Wizard and Paste-Pot Pete. By a wild coincidence, Pete breaks The Wizard out of jail and the two join forces. They frame Johnny as a spy, but their partnership is strained by Wiz's megalomania. "I'm a partner, not a servant, you know!" says Pete.
