Story is broken into three chapters. // Quisp, Mopee, and Shaggy are not named in the story, but along with the silent Guardian of the Universe are referred to as the other Super Friends' "imps". They appear in their traditional (if fairly obscure) forms save for insignia on their clothes associating them with their respective Super Friends.
