SHOESHINE BOY: I just can't do it.

SWEET POLLY: What happened? Can you tell us, weatherman Millard Spot, back in the studio, what happened?

MILLARD: Beats me, Sweet Polly. It's just hot in this city & cold everywhere else. (Shoeshine Boy hears what's going on & tells Sweet Polly.)

SWEET POLLY: Oh Shoeshine Boy, who could/ve done this? Underdog destroyed Simon Bar Sinister's weather machine & they're in jail, along with Riff Raff.

SHOESHINE BOY: Let's not forget those has-been villains, The Electric Eel & Batty Man.

BURGERMEISTER: We will get that Santa Claus once & for all! Delivering toys to our children, which is illegal! Bring in my secretary! (Secretary enters & turns out to be...)

NATASHA: Vhat you vant Boris, I mean Burgermeister? We keel Santa along with moose & squirrel?

BURGERMEISTER: Whoa boy! These cartoon crossover/inside jokes are terrible.

(Heat Miser's laughing @ that cartoon, but then the walls break down in his castle to have Underdog enter.)

UNDERDOG: There's no need to fear, Underdog is here!

HEAT MISER: You won't stop me, Underdog! I plan to melt the city for Christmas.

UNDERDOG: You're under arrest, you got no choice. But where have I heard that voice?

HEAT MISER: I'm your narrator, you idiot! George S. Irving plays both Heat Miser & the Underdog narrator! But tune in to Part 4 to see Underdog's doom!

HEAT MISER; Hey Underdog, get out your swimwear! You';; be one tanned dog when I'm done withn you! (Zaps Underdog with heat ray)

NARRATOR: Poor Underdog. How will he get out of this?

HEAT MISER: Shut up, narrator!

UNDERDOG: (Softly) The secret compartment of my ring I fill, with an Underdog super energy pill. But please netowrk censors, don't edit I plea, it's just a harmless pill and I am drug free.

(Underdog swallows the pill with approval from the network censors. The he gets up, re-energized, battling Heat Miser!)

HEAT MISER: Get him you fools!

NARRATOR: Underdog battles Heat Miser's little devils until he hears the wind howling. Out came...)

SNOW MISER: Invading my territory Heat Miser? This should teach you a lesson.

(Snow Miser zaps his frozen. Then Underdog takes him away to the cooler to chill. Back in the city, he arrives back @ the rink where it's cold again.)

SWEET POLLY: Oh Underdog, the weather is back to normal. Close your eyes. (She gets out some mistletoe & kisses Underdog.)

UNDERDOG: The weather is back to wind & snow, but now it's time for me to go. (Flies off)

NEW NARRATOR: So Underdog took care of Heat Miser.

SWEET POLLY: Where's our regular narrator?
