Episode 7 Puts the Apes in Escapes

Episode 7: Showstoppers

Blister and Muck battle cats, animal handlers, and more to seize the stolen panther from Dr. van Sangfreud. Their efforts take some unexpected turns when they enlist help from a chimpanzee troupe. Meanwhile, the circus elephants misunderstand Gorgeous George’s instructions and carry out a show-stopping finale!
