Bargain Bonanza is a fan-made episode written by Rigsrigsrigs10918, CartoonLover, Disneydude15, and Magic-is-cute.
Saffron and her ancestors participate in a game show called Bargain Bonanza and are pitted against Team Cooler.
(At the Farm Division, the sun is rising...)
Saffron: (Narrating) Ah. the Puppy Pound's Farm division. a pound where peace and quiet is a 96% chance. On this day, I came to visit my ancestors with Cooler, my adopted siblings, Winky, Rosy, and Tony.
(Cooler, the PoundRaizers, Winky, Rosy, and Tony enter. Saffron is riding on Tony's shoulders.)
Tony: So, how do feel about visiting your ancestors, Saffron?
Saffron: I kinda feel excited. (grabs something from Her pocket and pulls out a photograph of Herself, with Lucy, Rusty, Candy, Mandy, Andy, Randy, Tandy, and Sandy.) I wonder how they're doing...?
Cooler: They're doing fine, Saffy.
Tony: By the way, which name do you prefer: Kanashimi or Saffron?
Saffron: I'm originally named Saffron, and I'm sticking with it. Good memories. (a flashback of Saffron looking at the sky as She sees Lucy and Rusty's Six pups starting to freeze, and She gives Her cape to keep the pups warm. The Pups smile and thanks her. The Scene changes to Saffron building a Big Slingshot.
Lucy: Saffron, what is That?
Saffron: Well, You saw what that Stupid pirate was capable of, right? so, I'm setting up traps to keep out any malcontents. before I went to this time, I brought as much blueprints to make certain arsenal. I also modified a few Pumpkin Cannons to fire a few rotten fruits.
Saffron: Yes. Louie says that good food shouldn't be wasted.
(The Scene changes to Saffron playing an acoustic guitar at the porch as the sun rises with Rusty and Lucy starting to wake up.)
Lucy: Rusty... Saffron's playing the guitar.
Saffron: (Singing) The sky has many colors, depending on what, gray for the sky that's real stormy or clouds for the clearest skies, yellow for sunrise, blue for the daytime, too, orange for the sun that's going down, and black for when it's dark at Night, and yellow when the moon sees the light... (stops singing.) Huh? (sees Rusty and Lucy applauding.) Grandma... Grandpa... Thank You.
(The Scene changes to a furious Saffron looking at Her Pocket TV.)
Saffron: Can You believe this, Granny?
Saffron: Well, on one of the cartoons, I saw an evil-looking male Cat falling head over paws for a evil-looking female wolfhound. do You find that offensive?
Lucy: I'm glad You told Me, Saffron. I'll write an angry letter. so that the world's pups won't be tempted to fall in love with cats.
(The flashback ends as Saffron has Her eyes closed, beaming.)
Tony: I'm sorry, Saffron.
Saffron: what for?
Tony: When I asked you which name you preferred, you sound kind of upset. (Hugging Saffron) I'm sorry if I insulted you.
Saffron: Hey, It's okay. (Candy notices Saffron)
Candy: Saffron. (tells Her siblings) Hey, everyone! Saffron's come back!
(The Six pups swarm Saffron harmlessly.)
Saffron: You Six have grown well. Where are Your parents?
Sandy: Mom and Dad are currently at a unit auction, for Their anniversary tomorrow. They'll return tomorrow, too.
Saffron: Your Parents' anniversary is tomorrow?
Andy: Saffron, It's alright.
Saffron: I didn't realize it was tomorrow. and I... (inhales and exhales.) Ok. I'll just draw something like Rusty and Lucy hit by Cupid's arrows at the neck and shoulder, and They'll remember Their first meeting in a thought cloud.
Cooler: Saffron, I have a suggestion.
Saffron: What's that?
Cooler: DOGTV is hosting a new game show called Bargain Bonanza.
Saffron: Bargain Bonanza? What's that?
Cooler: Here. I'll show you. (Changes Saffron's TV channel to 15, where it shows contestants wearing silly costumes, winning prizes, and avoiding the Swooce.) That's Bargain Bonanza. Some of my friends and I are going to participate on the show. Would you like to participate?
Saffron: If it means getting an Anniversary gift for Gramps and Granny, then Yes. so long as These Six come along.
Candy: Really, Saffron?
Tony: But You'll each need a silly costume, and try to be original as possible. what will You dress as, Cooler?
Cooler: Probably as a Kabuki actor. All I need to do is get six more of my friends and I'm good to go. What are you going to dress up as, Saffy?
Saffron: I was saving money in hope of making these costumes for the Pups beside Me in the event that a video game convention would be near the farm division. but in a Game show... (Sees Rusty and Lucy dressed as Sheep, and sees Herself and the Pups dressed as Coyotes.)
Candy: ha ha ha. You sure have a weird mind, Saffy. but be serious.
Saffron: I'm thinking... a Mobster. (singing) with a cool-looking fedora.
Candy: Saff, Did You just sing?
Saffron: Sorry. I got carried away.
Cooler: Might I suggest a Opera Ghost? while holding a Keyboard and a hot dog tray?
Saffron: You know... That's comedic! It's settled! Opera Ghost it is.
Cooler: Your Gramps and Granny will be real surprised to see You and the others on TV.
Saffron: Word! but what's so bad about a-- what do You call them, a Swatch?
Cooler: It's a Swooce, Saffron.
Saffron: Oh. What's a Swooce?
Cooler: It's like You're given a Birdhouse Tree, or a trip to see the Mole People, or--
(Whopper pops out from behind Cooler.)
Whopper: going to outer space to beat the Toast Men of Zura 5--
Saffron: No, Cooler. Hear Him out.
Whopper: No, maybe it's like battling the Slime bunnies of the planet Hippity Hop or maybe foiling a plot by a secret agent from Milwaukee! Yeah!
(Tony falls asleep.)
Darius: (Aside) Eight dog years old and he has yet to grow up. (To Whopper) Say, how did you get here?
Whopper: Just thought I'd stop by.
Saffron: (to the Six Pups) I hope Your parents won't mind Me taking You to a TV studio for You to win Cash and Prizes for them.
Tandy: I'll go ask mommy and daddy through telephone.
(Tandy rushes off.)
Saffron: Good idea. I don't want them to get worried. Oh! Tandy! I don't think We should tell Your Mom or Dad that We're getting an Anniversary gift. I'm hoping to make it a surprise. But You can tell them, that I've come to visit and watch over You.
Candy: I suppose.
Saffron: And the Bargain Game show comes on in 3 Hours. and We must get there as early as possible.
Cooler: I'll ask Holly if I can participate on the game show.
Saffron: We'll meet You at the-- Which TV station?
Cooler: DOGTV Studios. Good luck.
Saffron: How will We get there You may ask? This! (Reveals Her Plastic Orb.) One of Howler's child-safe experiments, the Pup Orb, which can Make You safe as You roll along having fun. One per pup. Have fun!
(The Six pups go inside each orb, and roll along as They follow the gang. Tony wakes up.)
Tony: Say, where'd you get that toy?
Saffron: I told You, Howler made that, exclusively for the Younger pups. safety reasons.
Tony: Sorry. I got distracted by one of Whopper's silly stories that I fell asleep.
Saffron: Now, then, We'll wait for Your group to come along, as We save a spot for You in Line.
(Later, Saffron and the pups are standing outside DOGTV studios. Cooler, Marcus, Antonio, Winky, Sarge, Elaine, and Momo enter, wearing various costumes.)
Saffron: Cooler! Everyone! Over here!
Sarge: Hey, Saffron.
Marcus: Nice costumes.
Saffron: We appreciate it. Now, to wait for the doors to open. Sigh. I wish Grandpa and Granny came. I can only imagine... (In Saffron's Mind, Rusty and Lucy are dressed like Sheep, Saffron dressed like a Sheepherder, and the Six pups dressed like Coyotes.)
Mandy: You imagined Us as Coyotes?
Saffron: I sure do, Mom.
Mandy: Sigh. and Saffron called Me Mom yet again.
(Momo's stomach is growling. Momo tugs Marcus' pant leg.)
Marcus: I'm sorry, my boy. (Gives Momo a bagel) Here you go.
(Momo then eats his bagel.)
Marcus: We were in such a rush, we didn't stop for a bite to eat.
Saffron: Hey. Hey! The Doors are opening! Come On! Let's go!
(Everyone goes inside.)
Cooler: Well, Saffy, break a leg.
Winky: That means good luck in show business talk.
Saffron: Well, I can't literally.
Cooler: Well, you see, it's bad luck to say "good luck" when you're on stage. That's why performers and actors say "break a leg".
Saffron: Heh. Sure. (thinking) I'll never understand theater talk.
(A stage hand enters.)
Stage hand: Oh, so you must be the new contestants. The first 200 of you, Follow me please. (Cooler's posse and other audience members rush inside.)

Starr: Ok. Let's see what the Box contained.
(The Crate is opened, and contains a swooce in the form of a Tree with fake money.)
Announcer: It was a fake Money Tree!

Marcus: You did a great job out there, Elaine sweetie. Is there anything I can do to make you feel better?
Elaine: I don't know. I don't even know why I felt nervous.

Elaine: No Thanks.
Marcus: (Crying as he hugs Elaine) I got scared for you too! I'm so, so sorry for all trouble you went through! I'm a failure of a husband! I should be the one suffering out there... for you, Elaine sweetie! I promise that I'll never let you suffer again!
