Act One: Vigor of the Opera
(At the rumpus room, Gordon is reading an issue of Captain Canine. Vigor walks up to him)
Vigor: Good afternoon, Gordon.
Gordon: Hi, Viggy. I'm reading this latest issue of Captain Canine. Want me to read it to you?
Vigor: Thanks for the offer, Gordon.
(Vigor removes his glasses and puts on his reading glasses as he looks at the comic.)
Vigor: Ah.... who is that guy wearing half a mask?
Gordon: That's Lyro of the Opera. He made his first appearance in issue number thirty-nine. Lyro was the best tenor singer in all of Italy. That was until one day, the opera house caught on fire and half of Lyro's face was scarred from the burns. Not only that, the shock from his scars caused him to lose his voice. Since then, he vowed revenge against all of the world's greatest opera singers.
Vigor: Doesn't look like a pleasant person, right? Oh, and he looks like me. Only that I don't have any scars that is.
Gordon: Come on, Viggy. Let's read it together.
(Gordon sits next to Vigor.)
Vigor: (Reading) You'll ne-
Gordon: Um.... Can I be Captain Canine? You can be Lyro of the Opera.
Vigor: Okay. (Reading) You may have escaped my traps, Captain Canine, but I, Lyro of the Opera, am unstoppable!
Gordon: (Reading) You'll never get away with this, Lyro!
Vigor: (Reading) Oh, I can and I will. Ha ha ha...
Gordon: Actually, Viggy, Lyro's laugh is a bit higher.
Vigor: Oh. Okay. (Reading again, with a higher pitch) Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Gordon: (Reading) Not for long, Lyro! Pzzzt!
Vigor: (Reading) The joke's on you, Captain Canine! I'm wearing a laser-proof cape!
Gordon: (Reading) True, but here's one thing that will stop you!
Vigor: (Reading) Oh no! Not broccoli! Anything but broccoli!
Gordon: (Reading) Oh yes, broccoli!
Cooler: Howdy, guys.
(Vigor and Gordon notice Cooler.)
Gordon: Oh, hi, Cooler.
Cooler: Hey, Viggy, I didn't know you liked Captain Canine.
Vigor: Well... I just got interested in his adventures. We're reading the issue where Captain Canine encounters his arch-enemy, Lyro of the Opera.
Cooler: Well, I just stopped by to tell you guys that there's going to be another adoption being held today.
Gordon: Really, then who's the lucky dog?
(Outside, the Pound Puppies, Pound Purries, Marcus, May, Holly, Tony, TJ, Faith, DJ, and Howard wave goodbye to a girl puppy(Dottie) and her new owner.)
Pound Puppies, Pound Purries, Marcus, May, Holly, Tony, TJ, Faith, DJ, and Howard: (Singing) Goodbye, Dottie. Adios, Dottie. Au revoir, Dottie, you found a happy home!
Dottie: Farewell, guys. I'll come back and visit you someday.
(Dottie and her owner walk away.)
Vigor: Um... Gordon?
Gordon: Yes, Viggy?
Vigor: You don't mind if I borrow a few issues of Captain Canine, do you?
Gordon: Sure, but make sure you bring them back.
Vigor: I will, Gordon.
(At Vigor's doghouse, Vigor is reading the comic books.)
Vigor: Hmmm... Ooh! Oh ho! Yes! Amazing. This is a great comic book villain. I wonder if....
(Vigor sees a fedora and cape.)
Vigor: Yes! I can dress up as Lyro!
(He puts on the fedora and cape.)
Vigor: If only Gordon can see me now.
(Outside, Gordon is seen relaxing on a hammock.)
Gordon: (Yawning) What a nice day today.
(Vigor is heard laughing like Lyro of the Opera, surprising Gordon.)
Gordon: What was that?
Vigor: I am Lyro of the Opera!
Gordon: Lyro of the Opera?!
(Gordon gets up and sees Vigor.)
Gordon: Oh, it's only Viggy. Probably acting out the part of Lyro.
Vigor: No one will be safe from my wrath!
Gordon: Hmmm.... Probably did a good job at the part.
Vigor: No one will stop me, not even Captain Canine!
Gordon: Hey, Viggy.
Vigor: (Noticing Gordon) Vee-gor, if you please.
Gordon: You're doing a good job on doing the role of Lyro.
Vigor: Thank you very much. I wonder how the others will react?
Gordon: Who knows?
(Vigor, still in his Lyro costume, is seen rehearsing. Whopper notices this.)
Whopper: Yipe! It's Lyro of the Opera!
Vigor: Captain Canine better watch out because I am on the warpath!
Whopper: Oh no! I better go get Captain Canine!
(Whopper rushes off.)
Vigor: Maybe I should rehearse some more. That should impress Gordon some more.
(Whopper is seen rushing to a telephone.)
Whopper: I'm sure Captain Canine will stop Lyro from world domination.
(Meanwhile, Gordon is seen talking to Captain Canine on the phone.)
Gordon: And Vigor is doing a good job as Lyro.
Captain Canine: Nice.
Gordon: Maybe you can feature him as a guest star in your show.
Captain Canine: I don't see why not.
Gordon: I'll go tell Viggy the good news.
Captain Canine: Well...
(Captain Canine's phone is ringing.)
Captain Canine: Hold on. Somebody else is on the line. I'll call you back.
(Captain Canine picks up the other line.)
Captain Canine: Hello?
Whopper: Captain Canine!
Captain Canine: Ah, Whopper. Any interesting stories to tell me?
Whopper: It's Lyro of the Opera! He's gonna take over the puppy pound!
(Captain Canine laughs.)
Captain Canine: Good one, Whopper.
Whopper: But, Captain Canine, I'm telling the truth!
Captain Canine: Sure you are. I'll talk to you later.
(Captain Canine goes back to Gordon.)
Gordon: Who was it, Captain Canine?
Captain Canine: Some nut who thinks one of the show's villains is real.
Gordon: (Lowly) It's Whopper, isn't it?
Captain Canine: Yeah.
Gordon: I knew it. (Aside) Seriously, I don't know that pup. (To Captain Canine) I'll see if I can convince Whopper that Viggy isn't Lyro.
Captain Canine: Okay.
(Gordon hangs up.)
Gordon: That darn Whopper!
Vigor: What's wrong, Gordon?
Gordon: It's Whopper again.
Vigor: What about him?
Gordon: He thinks you're Lyro.
Vigor: Ah, I see. What should we do?
(Gordon whispers in Vigor's ear.)
Vigor: That could work. Good idea, Gordon.
Gordon: Thanks. If my idea won't work, I don't know what will.
(Later, Gordon and Vigor are watching Whopper.)
Act Two: Bright Eyes' Song
(In Igor's pup-house, Igor is looking at his pictures with his friends and family.)
Igor: (Narrating out loud) Ever since my adventure outside the pound, I made a lot of thinking at the time, but if there came a time, when I would be cast out....
Bright Eyes: Iggy? Narrating out loud again?
(Igor is startled.)
Igor: Oh, hello, Bright Eyes. I didn't see you.
Bright Eyes: Still worried about the future, huh?
Igor: Well, yes.
Bright Eyes: Well, let me tell you something... in the form of a song.
(Todd Rundgren's Instrumental version of "Can We Still be friends" starts.)
Igor: Well, I don't think I'm that good at singing.
Bright Eyes: Don't be so modest, Iggy. feel free to sing along.
Bright Eyes: (Singing) We won't play this game anymore, but will we still be friends?
Igor: Of course we can.
Bright Eyes: (Singing) things might not go on for-ever, but will we still be friends? Your cat's heart is quite rare, but, of course, it is beyond compare. things are said, that we know, you feel like you've nowhere, left to go. (Igor nods.) Let's just say, everyone makes mistakes but will we still be friends?
Igor: Well, you're right.
Bright Eyes: (Singing) You feel like You don't want Your heart to ache, but Will We still be friends....? You play with Yarn, like cats do, but that's the reason, that You are You. (Igor starts to shed tears of joy.) With Your pranks, We don't mind, but We're the best Friends You'll ever find.... (Instrumental break as She stops singing.) Am I getting through to You, Iggy?
Igor: Bright Eyes.... (remembers the good memories He had with the Pound Puppies gang.) Yes. (starts to cry) Thank You...! (Bright Eyes sings back-up as Igor sings.) Can We still be married one day...? and Life still goes on and on and on and on...
Bright Eyes and Igor: A loving pair comes in two....

Cooler: Well, that's good to hear.
(Igor joins in with Cooler and Jackie)
Igor: She's such a good girlfriend. I hope that when I turn 12 dog years old, which will be about 6 monthes in human years, I marry Bright Eyes. Of course, I'll have to wait another month after I turn 12.
Jackie: You know, you and Bright Eyes are made for each other.

Igor: So, how was your morning?
Bright Eyes: Very good.
Igor: You know, your song really made my day yesterday.
Bright Eyes: Thank you very much, Iggy.
Igor: You should come up with songs like that more often.

(Bright Eyes nods.)
Bright Eyes: Of course I do, Iggy.
(Igor purrs while wagging his tail as he rubs his head on Bright Eyes' shoulder. He then yawns.)
