Allstar ill

Plot Summary

Allstar is at home feeling really sick (and with blue dots all over his entire body), and all the snorks are over at his house, feeling extremely nervous about his condition. Gallio comes over and uses his latest invention to determine the problem. However, he is unable to figure it out for himself, so the snorks have no other choice but to find the famed King Claw and have him figure out why Allstar is so ill.

They brought as much money and pearls as they could (or what Junior calls the "Save Allstar Fund") so they could find King Claw. Junior is, of course, very scared and refuses to go in, but the others convince him to do so anyway. They find King Claw in a dark cave, and he refuses to accept their pearls because he already has so many. He was about to eat them for lunch when he discovers Daffney holding her powder compact, and he retrieves it as he tells them Allstar has bluemonia, and that the only cure for it was hair off of an evil sea urchin. 

After the snorks somehow took Allstar back home, they went into the tacky castle, where they saw Bigweed for the very first time, coming up with his latest potion. However, a blue electric eel is on his arm, and Tooter distracts it by dressing his snork as a blonde electric eel. The snork enter the lair and grab Bigweed by the tail, and after Casey requests some of his hair, he claims to "never help snorks." He makes his hair disappear, but when Lil Seaweed makes her first appearance, they tie her up and take some of her hair instead. They bring it back to Allstar, who finally gets cured of the disease.
