Characters PresentEdit


Yo offers Fanboy to trade Chum Chum for a Mecha-Tech Robot. In a moment of weakness, Fanboy agrees to trade his best pal for the robot. However, it's not long before he realizes that it's no fun when you don't have your best friend around to share the toy with. Fanboy finds that rescuing his pal from Yo may be tougher than he thought.

Full RecapEdit

Fanboy, Chum Chum, and Yo watch a commercial for the new action figure, "Mechatech" in Oz's comic shop, that awaits its owner's commands. The next day, at school, he stares into an image of Mechatech inside his locker. He asks himself why he never bought the toy, and Chum Chum answers by telling him that he spent all his money on the picture frame he framed the image of Mechatech with. Fanboy walks into the classroom and finds out that everyone except him owns a Mechatech. Fanboy is now depressed until Yo tells him that she will give him her Mechatech for a day....if she can borrow Chum Chum! Fanboy tricks Chum Chum into staying with Yo for the day, but when Yo attempts to keep Chum Chum in a glass dome, Fanboy must resist the fun provided by the Mechatech and save his best friend.
