[The episode starts off with montage of Crinkly Wrinkly interviewing a couple of guests]
Announcer: Welcome to “Stage Left,” with Crinkly Wrinkly.
[Audience cheers and applause. Dynamite Watkins comes in to hit Crinkly Wrinkly with a chair. The titlecard appears. The cameraman gets ready for Dynamite Watkins to host]
Dynamite Watkins: I’m Dynamite Watkins! Your host for tonight—
Crinkly Wrinkly: My neck!
Dynamite Watkins: for tonight’s highly-anticipated retrospective! Fans of the smash hit TV series, “OK K.O.: Let’s Be Heroes,” prepare to lose your cool! Joining us today is… Enid! [Enid comes onstage] Rad! [Comes onstage as well]
Rad: Please donate to my charity— Tiny Clothes for Tiny Dinos.
Dynamite Watkins: And K.O.! [Audience cheers louder as he comes onstage]
Audience: K.O.! K.O.! K.O.!
Dynamite Watkins: Wow! [K.O. gives kisses] K.O. is clearly the crowd favorite. No surprise there. That kid’s a show-stealer! So, “OK K.O.” has taken the world by storm! It’s number one on every network. [Dramatically] And in all our hearts. Did you three ever expect it to become such an explosive success?!
Enid: Well, I don’t know about the others, but from the very beginning, I could just, like, sense the material was really special, you know?
Rad: Yeah, I have—
Dynamite Watkins: Well, that’s great. I’ve actually got a relic that can take us all back to the beginning you spoke of. The original pilot— [Shows the relic] “Lakewood Plaza Turbo”!
Enid, K.O., and Rad: What?!
Dynamite Watkins: That’s right— the pilot! And I don’t mean the sap that flies your plane. [Displays what a pilot is] I’m talking a short sample episode that’s made to test the waters and see if it’s something people would want to watch more of. Right, K.O.?
K.O.: Well, yeah, but… we’ve come a really long way since the pilot, and it’s not at all representative of our current work, so…
Dynamite Watkins: Whoo, “Lakewood Plaza Turbo”!
[Audience cheers and applause as the pilot starts airing]
Announcer: In the year, 201X, [Displays the robots of Boxmore] Lord Boxman opened a store to arm his robot hoard. [Cuts to Lakewood Plaza Turbo and the heroes preparing to fight] But the heroes of Lakewood Plaza—
Rad and Singing voice: Are ready to fight!
Rad: [Laughs] Oh, man! Remember this old theme song?
K.O. and Singing voice: K.O., Rad, and Enid are in battle mode.
Enid and Singing voice: punch and kick the bad guys till they all explode.
K.O., Enid, Rad, and Singing voice: Power up and fight. Let’s watch an episode of Lakewood Plaza Turbo. [K.O. says K.O. instead of Plaza Turbo. Rad laughs after he messed up]
Rad: We have fun. Ha— the plaza looked so different back then.
K.O.: Whoa! We looks so weird.
Enid: Ugh—my hair! Sorry. This is just, um… really weird to watch now.
Dynamite Watkins: It sure is! Please feel free to react out loud during the whole thing.
Enid’s voice: He’s sleeping again.
[Rad snores and K.O. dumps ice cream on him]
K.O.: [laughs] Rad got so cold underneath all that ice cream, they had to call in a stunt double!
Rad: Ha. Well, uh, I was on a cleanse, so my skin was super sensitive.
K.O.’s voice.: You looked so peaceful, like a baby lamb.
[Mega Football Baby and Sparko laughs]
Pilot Enid’s voice: Gee!
Rad: Whoa, whoa, whoa. What is going on with your mouth there?
K.O.: It’s an old theater trick we call “jawning.” It, um… keeps the jaw nice and loose, even when you’re not talking.
Rad’s voice: Ooh! [Prepares to shoot K.O. with his finger]
Rad: Oh! Did my own stunt here. Shout-out to the effects team.
Rad’s voice: It’s just the power poke. You know, a special move?
K.O.’s voice: “Special move”? Okay, my turn!
Dynamite Watkins: So, K.O., I sense a little conflict between you and Rad here.
K.O.: Yeah, you know, in this episode, I think he’s the bad guy. But—spoiler alert—turns out he’s not the bad guy, and it was totally some other dude. Ha— the stories can’t get too complicated in pilots.
[Crowd laughs when K.O. doesn’t do his “special move”]
K.O.’s voice: Yeah, well… I’ll soil you!
[K.O. and Rad fights]
Enid’s voice: Cool it!
Crowd: Fight, fight!
Enid’s voice: I said, “Cool it!” [Uses her power kick]
K.O.: Ooh. Enid’s outfit change really was for the best.
Enid: [Chuckles nervously] Well… it was challenging. But the material called for a loin-flap, and I think meeting that challenge made me a stronger performer.
Mr. Gar’s voice: No! [Pounds the ground]
Enid’s voice: Boss, what happ— [Trips on her loin-flap] whoa!
K.O.: [laughs] Remember how often you’d trip over that thing? [Enid continues tripping over her loin-trap]
Enid: What?! Why would you show that?!
Dynamite Watkins: Just cut in a few bloopers to spice things up.
Mr. Gar’s voice: My sign! [The sign has been vandalized]
K.O.’s voice: “Lakewood Plaza Turbo Smells Ba…” Smells ba?!
Mr. Gar’s voice: You’re new here, K.O., but there’s something you need to know about retail. We sell supplies to the heroes of the world. [Shows far shot of Lakewood Plaza Turbo and Box More] But across Route 175 at Box More… they sell weapons to villains.
Lord Boxman: Ahem— excuse me! [Raises his hand] Quick question here.
Dynamite Watkins: Sir, the Q&A is after the—
Lord Boxman: I worked three 12-hour shoots on this thing, and all my scenes got cut! I just want to know why!
Rad: Oh, right. They accidentally sent the Boxman scenes to the wrong animation studio.
[Shows a clip of Darrell, Raymond, Jethro, Shannon, and Lord Boxman being goofy] Lord Boxman: Oh, I see. Could I join the panel?
Enid and Rad: No.
K.O.: You know, they cut a lot of my scenes, too.
Rad: What are you talking about? You’re in, like, every scene.
Enid: And they did kind of name the show after you. [Laughs nervously] So…
Dynamite Watkins: Scandalous!
Enid: Uh, no, no, no— no scandal. [Laughs nervously]
Mr. Gar’s voice: Pay attention… [does his pilediver move] you brat!
[Enid takes K.O. out of the way and the move hits Rad]
Rad: Did this stunt.
Mr. Gar’s voice: No text during work hours! [Throws phone to Rad and goes in his car]
Rad: Did this stunt, too.
K.O.: I just gotta say, it wasn’t my idea to change the name of the show.
Enid: Well, you didn’t exactly fight them on it, did you?
K.O.: It was my first gig. I didn’t want to make waves.
Enid: Oh, ho! Because you’re such a professional now.
K.O.: You want to talk about professional? At least I didn’t break Rad’s wrist.
Rad’s voice: What?
Enid’s voice: [Twists Rad’s wrist] Break’s over.
Enid: You act like I did that on purpose.
Rad: Uh, my wrist is fine. I’m not some fragile, Hollyzone actor with glass bones. I’d just like everybody to know that.
K.O.: I’m not sure if it was on purpose or not.
Enid: That’s because… I’m a great actor.
Rad: Again, my wrist— never broke, ha ha!
K.O.: Great actors don’t hurt their co-stars.
Enid: Oh, so I’m your co-star now?
Rad: Ok, ok. Let’s all just calm down here before someone—
Audience member: Breaks a wrist?!
Rad: Who said that?!
Enid: If we were really co-stars, you’d be sharing some of the spotlight.
K.O.: That is totally unfair.
Rad: If you got something to say to me out there, come up here and say it to my face, brah!
Audience member: Your face, brah, or your stunt double’s?!
Rad: Stop laughing! [Audience continues to laugh] Stop! [Grabs a chair to throw a very small distance]
[Audience laughs even more]
K.O.: You know what, I’m done. I’m just done with this. [Goes backstage]
Rad: You guys want to go, I’ll take you all on! [Throws another chair]
Dynamite Watkins: Uh, perhaps you could all take five backstage? [Signals the cameraman]
[Audience continues to laugh]
Rad: I’m the real deal! The real deal! [Enid drags Rad backstage] [Cameraman starts filming them] Why’d they have to show the stupid pilot anyway?
Enid: Calm down.
Rad: My image has been tainted! The two of you got to look like flawless professionals, while everybody laughed at my humiliating moments.
Enid: You think my blooper reel wasn’t humiliating? I don’t want people to remember a time when I was… an amateur.
K.O.: What are you guys talking about? Neither of you should feel embarrassed.
Rad: Oh, can it, K.O.. You’re a perfect child prodigy.
Enid: You couldn’t look bad if you tried.
K.O.: That’s not true! Do you know how hard I work to keep up with you two? I stayed up all night practicing my lines. I take tons of classes. My acting coach is here, right now.
Acting Coach: [Holds a donut] You’re doing great.
K.O.: And, Rad, in that one scene back there… [breathes shakily] that… that wasn’t “jawning.” That was me blowing it. Watching myself in the pilot, all I see are my mistakes. But when I’m watching you two, I can’t find a single flaw— just reasons to keep working hard so, one day, I can be as proud of my work… as I am of yours.
[Enid kicks some dirt]
Rad: [Sighs] We should go back.
K.O.: hard so, one day, I can be as proud of my work as I am of yours.
[K.O., Enid, and Rad prepares to take their seat while Dynamite Watkins wants to switch back the clip]
Dynamite Watkins: Cut.
[Plays back the pilot where K.O. prepares to “fight” Rad as the crowd stares]
Rad’s voice: What? You gonna soil your pants again, dawg? [Prepares to step in]
K.O.’s voice: Hy…
Rad’s voice: I can’t go easy on ya.
K.O.’s voice: …yah! [Rad cracks his knuckles]
Enid: Hey, I don’t know if I ever said it, but you really nailed that scream, K.O..
K.O.: Uh, well, thanks.
[K.O. throws his punch as the crowd gasps and runs out. The punch hit a random stranger]
K.O.’s voice: Yeah! That guy’s the wiener!
Enid’s voice: K.O., that’s…
Darrell’s voice: Absolutely correct! [Throws away his cloak to reveal himself]
Rad’s voice: Darrell!
Enid’s voice: Boxmore! Are you kidding me?! [Enid throws K.O. to stop Darrell]
K.O.’s voice: Hyah. [punches Darrell]
Rad: Aw, man. Enid, I was always impressed with your cool stunt there.
K.O.: Oh, yeah. Me, too.
Enid: Oh, stop it.
Darrell’s voice: Never, you Lakewood loser! [Mr. Gar steps out of his car]
K.O.: As always, Rad, great job dubbin’ Darrell.
Enid: Yeah, seriously.
Rad: Uh, wow— thanks, guys.
Mr. Gar’s voice: You actually caught him?
K.O.’s voice: Yeah.
Mr. Gar’s voice: Well, then listen up. There’ll be no trouble if you just pay up for fixing the sign.
Darrell’s voice: But I did fix it, old man. “Lakewood Plaza… smells bad!”
[Mr. Gar takes off his sunglasses and grabs Darrell to smash Darrell]
Mr. Gar’s voice: Hyah!
[The pilot ends]
Audience: [Cheers and applause] K.O., Rad, and Enid! K.O., Rad, and Enid!
Enid: Huh. I guess we did pretty good.
[Enid, Rad, and K.O. holds hands to stand and bows down]
Dynamite Watkins: Wow! What an unexpected emotional conclusion that unveiled entirely on its own with absolutely no involvement from me, Dynamite Watkins, at all!
[The audience continues to cheer as the credits start playing]
K.O.: Thanks for sticking with us this far. The show’s just gonna keep getting better and better! And thanks for sticking with me, too, you guys.
Gerald Nametag: Excuse me. [Raises his hand] Yes, hello. Gerald Nametag here. Might I inquire— What happened to your noses?
K.O.: Oh, well, [chuckles] that’s…
Gerald Nametag: You know, those really long noodle snooters.
K.O.: Yes, that’s actually—
Gerald Nametag: [Shows an photo] These sausage-looking dealies right here.
Enid, Rad, and K.O.: We get it!
[The Cartoon Network Studios logo from the pilot plays on screen. A line is faintly heard in the background. Enid: Boss, that’s the graffiti weiner!]
K.O.: And it’s actually…
[1999 Cartoon Network Productions logo plays in the background]
Enid, Rad, and K.O.: A really funny story.
[Flashbacks to their “story”]
Enid: Ugh— stupid loin flap! [Throws loin flap]
Rad: Hey everybody! Got a fresh box of pepper here. [Slips on the loin flap spilling the pepper in the box] Whoa—wacky!
[The three sneezed their noses off their face and landed on the wall. Enid places the noses on sale]
[They laugh and landed on a different animation studio being goofy]
[The episode ends]
