Act One: Mr. Rigs Goes to Hollywood
(Tony is seen eating breakfast with the PoundRaizers.)
Narrator: It was on this morning that Tony Rigs' life is about to change...
(A knock is heard on the door.)
Bartrand: I'll go see who that is.
(Bartrand goes to the door and answers it.)
Woman: Is Tony Rigs here?
Bartrand: Yeah. Who are you?
Woman: I'm Odette Terwilliger, co-owner of Terwilliger Sisters Studios.
Bartrand: Terwilliger Sisters Studios?
Miss Terwilliger: Surely you've seen our show, My Dad, The Ninja.
Bartrand: Oh! Anyway, what do you need Tony for?
Miss Terwilliger: I'm here to offer him a job.
Miss Terwilliger: May I see Mr. Rigs, please?
(Bartrand escorts Miss Terwilliger to Tony.)
Miss Terwilliger: Hello. You must be Mr. Rigs.
Tony: Yep. That's me.
Miss Terwilliger: I'm Odette Terwilliger of Terwilliger Sisters Studios.
Tony: Terwilliger Sisters Studios? I've heard about that place before.
Miss Terwilliger: So, Mr. Rigs, how would you like to be an actor?
Tony: I'd love to!
Miss Terwilliger: Wonderful. Whenever you're ready, let me know and I'll do the rest.
(Miss Terwilliger leaves.)
Tony: Wow. Imagine me as a Hollywood movie star.
Stephanie: That would be cool!
Antonio: Hmmm.... I don't know about that.
Bartrand: What do you mean?
Antonio: Remember what happened to Bright Eyes the last time she was offered to be a movie star?
Darius: We know.
Victoria: But if I know Tony Rigs, nothing bad would happen to him.
Saffron: Vicky's right.
Tony: Yeah. Besides, what can go wrong?
Darius: That's what I was afraid of.
Bartrand: Don't worry. He'll be fine.
Darius: I hope....
(Later, Tony and Bartrand are telling Cooler and Holly the news.)
Cooler: Ah, so you're gonna be a movie star, eh?
Tony: Yep. I'm gonna get to work with all the big name stars. I'll be on the big screen.
Cooler: That's great.
Tony: You bet it is! Imagine... Me, a legendary movie star like the Marf Brothers, the Three Wise Guys, Orson Wolf, Ruffster Keaton, Collie Chaplin, or that guy who directed Mongroplois! I'm going to love being in Hollywood! I better pack.
Cooler: Boy, he sure is excited.
Bartrand: Yep. The other PoundRaizers and I should accompany him, if you don't mind, Cooler, Holly.
Cooler: You can accompany him, just to make sure he's safe.
Act Two: Gusty, the Storm Chasing Cat
(At Holly's Puppy Pound, Holly and Cooler are filing the papers when Howler comes in with his weather checker.)
Howler: Aroo! Cooler! Holly! We got some nasty storms heading our way.
Holly: That doesn't sound good.
Cooler: I hope it's not as bad as it was the last time we had severe weather.
Holly: Me too.
Cooler: I think we better be ready.
Howler: Yeah, we should, Cooler.
(Later, the pound is preparing for the storm.)
Holly: Do we have everything we need?
Cooler: Yep. Always be prepared. I've already warned our allies.
Cooler: Yeah. We'll be fine. We have good shelter and plenty of supplies.
Howler: The storm is almost here!
Cooler: Ooh! We better head to the basement.
(The gang quickly goes to the basement.)
Howler: Whew! We're safe.
(After the storm, the gang emerges from the shelter.)
Howler: Well, that was a wild storm.
Cooler: Sure was.
(Cooler opens the pound's door to reveal a mess in the yard.)
Cooler: Why can't tornadoes clean up after themselves?
Howler: I don't know, Cooler. I'm not a tornado.
Holly: Well, come on, everyone. Time to clean up.
(They hear a meow.)
Cooler: Catgut... was that you?
Catgut: Don't look at me.
(Cooler looks at Hairball.)
Hairball: I didn't do it.
(The gang then notices a pile of clutter moving.)
Sen Sen: What's that?
(Cooler carefully goes by the clutter.)
Bartrand: Be careful, Cooler!
(Before Cooler can lift the debris, a cat bursts from the rubble.)
Cat: Whoo-whee! I haven't been on a ride like that since the last tornado!
Cooler: Who are you?
Cat: They call me Gusty. I'm a storm chaser.
Cooler: Storm chaser?
Gusty: That's right. I've been a storm chaser for three years.
Cooler: Ooh. Interesting.
Gusty: Uh huh. So, when's the next big storm coming? I'm looking forward to chase another tornado.
Cooler: Not for awhile, Gusty.... (Aside) Matter of fact, not for a very long time.
Gusty: (Sadly) Oh.
Cooler: Why don't you come in and relax?
Gusty: No way. That ain't my style. Besides, where's the fun in that?
Holly: Relaxing can be really fun.
Gusty: Oh, what do you guys know about fun? Storm-chasing is even more fun!
(Gusty starts to leave.)
Holly: This is an interesting guest.
(Cooler stops Gusty.)
Cooler: Gusty, wait.
Cooler: I have something fun to show you.
Cooler: Yeah. Come on.
(Cooler and Gusty go to the HQ's arcade.)
Gusty: That's it? Arcade games? Pfft! I'm outta here.
Cooler: Wait a minute! We just got a new addition to the arcade. We got a tornado simulator! It'll make you experience the effects of a tornado. Howler designed it. He can do anything.
Gusty: But it's not the real thing. Therefore, the thrill of the experience isn't there. Sorry.
(Gusty is about to leave.)
Cooler: Wait! What kind of food do you like to eat?
Gusty: I like tuna melts but I got lots of those in my pack.
Weather Radio: Due to the increase in moisture and dew points, another day of tornadoes is expected tomorrow. Be advised to stay indoors.
Cooler: Oh no....
Gusty: Oh yes!
(Later, Cooler is holding Gusty so that he won't leave.)
Cooler: Gusty, no! You'll get killed out there!
Gusty: I've done this a million times! I know what to do!
Cooler: And suppose you get killed on the million and first time.
Gusty: No way. I'll show you.
Cooler: Catgut! Sen Sen! Stop him!
(Catgut and Sen Sen hold Gusty.)
Gusty: Let me go or I'll throw you in that tornado!
Sen Sen: Pfft! Like you have the strength to do so. I've been through worse situations.
Gusty: Oh yeah? Watch this!
(Gusty lifts Sen Sen with one hand.)
Sen Sen: What the...?!
Gusty: Now get out of my way!
(Gusty tosses Sen Sen into a laundry basket and tries to get away, but the alarm is set off.)
Cooler: There's the alarm.
Gusty: And that's my cue.
(A net drops on Gusty.)
Gusty: What the...?!
Cooler: Good work, Howler.
(Howler is shown holding a net launching gun.)
Howler: Aroo! Thanks, Cooler.
Gusty: When I get out of here, I'm gonna turn you jerks into soap!
Sen Sen: I'd like to see you try. By the way, how are you gonna turn us into soap?
Gusty: I don't know. First thing that came to mind.
Sen Sen: Hmm. Whatever. Anyway, you're not going out there.
Gusty: I can and I will... somehow.
Sen Sen: (Whispering to Cooler) Should we put a leash on him?
Cooler: (Whispering) I don't think so.
Sen Sen: Well, what else do you expect me to do, let him run outside?
Cooler: I don't think he can get out of there.
Sen Sen: OK.
(Sen Sen leaves.)
Catgut: I can't believe that we have another tornado to expect.
Catgut: (Glaring at Gusty) What did you call me, jerk?
Catgut: Try that again.
Catgut: Okay, you asked for it!
(Catgut throws a punch but Gusty ducks and pounds on Catgut's wrist. Catgut and Cooler are shocked by Gusty's strength and agility.)
Gusty: Anything else?
(Catgut leaves to tend his hand.)
Cooler: Okay, Gusty. You're getting out of hand here.
Gusty: Just let me out of here and I'll calm down.
Cooler: We don't want you to get hurt out there.
Gusty: Don't worry. I've been doing this for years.
Cooler: Are you sure about that?
Gusty: Yes. Now let me out, PLEASE!
Cooler: Well... since you said please, all right.
(Cooler releases Gusty.)
Gusty: Thanks. And don't worry. I'll be fine.
(Gusty goes outside.)
Cooler: I hope so.
(Gusty is seen standing outside. Cooler, Sen Sen and Catgut watch from afar.)
Catgut: Cooler, may I ask what gave you the idea of letting Gusty outside when they just announced another tornado outbreak?
Cooler: It's what he wants. We shouldn't stop him.
Sen Sen: I agree. He may be your size, but he's unbelievably strong. If we try to stop him, he'll twist our necks off.
Catgut: You don't know that.
Sen Sen: Cooler, do you believe that Gusty is so strong that he'd twist our necks off?
Cooler: We know he's strong, all right, but I don't think he would do that.
Sen Sen: But I've been wrong before.
(The skies get darker.)
Gusty: Come on, twister. Show yourself.
(They then see a group of storm chasers outside the gates.)
Catgut: Hey, Cooler! Look!
(Cooler notices the storm chasers and gets an idea.)
Cooler: Catgut, you just gave me an idea!
Catgut: I did?
Cooler: Yep. Now, listen...
(Outside, Gusty notices the storm chasers.)
Gusty: Ooh, storm chasers.
Storm Chaser: Hmmm... Looks like a big one's coming.
Gusty: Ooh! A big one!
Storm Chaser 2: How big is it?
Storm Chaser: I'd say about.... a couple miles wide.
Gusty: Even better.
Storm Chaser: Well, we better get some good footage of it.
Gusty: Ooh! Those are my owners!
(Cooler, Sen Sen and Catgut is shocked to hear what Gusty said.)
Cooler, Sen Sen and Catgut: Huh?!
Catgut: Did he really just say that?
Gusty: That's where I belong!
(One of the storm chasers notice Gusty.)
Storm Chaser: Hey, look! A cat!
(Gusty waves to them.)
Gusty: Hi, guys! I'm a storm-chaser, too! Want to adopt me?
Storm Chaser: You hear that, Elmer?
Elmer: Yeah, Carol. He says that he's a storm-chaser like us. We could use him.
Carol: (To Gusty) Of course we'll adopt you!
Cooler: Well, look at that.
Sen Sen: Yeah. It looks like Gusty is going to get adopted.
Catgut: and he continue chasing his dream.
Elmer: (Noticing Cooler) Hey, you! Are you the co-owner of Holly's Puppy Pound?
Elmer: We'd like to adopt this cat.
(The sirens go off.)
Cooler: Right after the tornado is over.
Gusty: Well for me, it's time for action.
Elmer: Don't worry about us, young pup. We'll be fine.
(Back inside, the heroes are in the basement again.)
Cooler: I'm sure they know what they're doing.
Catgut: Hopefully, they'll make it out alive.
(Cut to Gusty and his new owners.)
Carol: Are you ready, Gusty?
Gusty: You know it.
(Elmer gets out his camera.)
Gusty: Ooh! It's a big one!
Carol: Here it comes!
Gusty: And here I go!
(The trio drive their car closer and closer to the tornado.)
Elmer: OK, Gusty. You're up!
Gusty: I'm ready!
Elmer: Here we go, Gusty!
(They drive close enough. Cut to the heroes in the basement.)
Catgut: I hope they're OK out there.
Sen Sen: Eh, I'm sure they're okay, Catgut. What could possibly go wrong?
Catgut: I hope you're right, Sen Sen. I hope you're right.
(Cooler comforts Catgut.)
Cooler: He is, Catgut. Don't worry about it.
(Catgut feels the ground rumbling.)
Catgut: Uh-oh. It's here.
Gamma: Don't panic, everyone. You know the drill.
(Gamma forms a barrier around everyone.)
Gamma: On the bright side, at least we don't have that beanstalk crybaby with us.
Cooler and Holly (sternly) Gamma....
Gamma: I know, I know.
(The ground rumbles violently.)
Gamma: Brace yourselves, everyone! It's here.
(The heroes shake.)
Gamma: Holy smokes, it's a big one!
