Synopsis
The Pussycats get a gig playing at the swinging nightclub Zack's, and try to get over there without Alexandra finding out. But Alexandra has turned into a fish to spy on their conversation, and after she resumes her human form, she and Sebastian teleport over to Zack's. Zack, who is secretly a notorious thief, notices that Alexandra is wearing a fabulous jewel and, after charming her, steals it. What he doesn't realize is that the jewel has an ancient curse on it that doesn't affect Alexandra due to her witchcraft powers.
