Storyline

Dr. Helix, a scientist Gi is a fan of, appears to have found a solution for oil-spills by placing his invented substance in water where it absorbs the oil. Sly Sludge decides to get rich off of this so poses as an interested scientist then steals the formula before it's tested, offering to let it devour trash in France where garbage-collectors prove a problem by going on strike. It turns out that the substance grows after "eating" the garbage, turning into a type of blob with an appetite growing with its size. The Planeteers must stop it before its hunger-rampage destroys everything in its path. Written by brainybrailler@comcast.net
