Spider-Ham saves Bunsen, but they run into two more Fat Cats. Spider-Ham and the interns evade the cats, and head for a restaurant, but the Pig-Signal summons our hero to the prison, where the cats are planning to break in so they can eat and be left alone. Spider-Ham prepares to capture them, but Ducktor Doom, Dragon-Lassy, and other villains are breaking out, so he stops them, and the cats decide to go straight.
