Description

Billy Bob introduces the band from Smitty's Super Service Station. Mitzi Jr. slides onscreen, before Beach Bear surfs to the surface, Dook arrives onstage, getting off his rocket, and Fatz walks onstage with his keyboard. The camera pans to the left, revealing Rolfe and Earl, and pans to a street corner where most of Munch's Make Believe Band sings their lines, while Mr. Munch himself is eating pizza from a box, which Pasqually shrugs off. Billy Bob leads the bands, Ho-kago Tea Time and a myriad of supporting characters in a large march on the streets. When Looney Bird counts to three, the show's title forms in the sky from a constellation.
