Class TimeEdit

In class Oona and Deema pretend to make a pizza using clay, while Mr. Grouper is their customer. The pizza resembles Bubble Puppy, inspiring them to make this their restaurants special and talent. Mr. Grouper then begins to tell the guppies what restaurants else can/will do. And then Deema decides to sing.

Story TimeEdit

The guppies go outside to play. Gil pretends to be Super Waiter! With his sidekick, Nonny, as Bus-boy! Running a restaurant, Deema comes in and wants an order of mixed vegetables consisting of peas, carrots, and corn. Gil mentions having to go into the "Garden of Doom" to get these ingrediants. Nonny adds that they can get everything into the kitchen and Molly, the chef, can make it for them. They then fly off and upon arrival Gil notices a fowl smell. It's rotten tomato! Using his pickle ray he traps Super Waiter in a pickle but Nonny quickly makes it back to Molly in hopes of getting her to make the meal still.

He then goes to tell Deema that the order will be done soon but when he goes back to the kitchen he sees the chef trapped in a pickle! Rotten Tomato is there! He also mixed up the ingrediants so they can't finish the dish now. Molly manages to tell Nonny that Carrots are orange, corn is yellow, and peas are green. Nonny manages to fix it and then prepares to deliver it but Rotten Tomato tries to turn him into a pickle but Nonny blocks the ray and frees Molly. Rotten Tomato goes in for the attach but Nonny catches him in a ketchup bottle! He delivers the meal and the story ends...

Molly and Gil 2Edit

Molly sees Gil dressed as waiter and asks him why he's dressed up. He sits there humming as she asks what he's doing and Gil says he's a "Waiter", so he's "waiting".

Field TripEdit

The guppies open a restaurant titled "Picture Pizza Parlor". Which basically is making pizza's but with pictures shaped onto them with the ingrediants. The crabs from earlier come by and ask for a boat pizza which Deema makes and Mr. Grouper puts into the oven to cook. It's then Mr. Grumpfish shows up! Everyone begins to worry as he can't decide what to order. Gil suggests the special and everyone heads back to the kitchen to try to think of what to make for him. Deema suddenly gets an idea and Molly brings out a pizza resembling Mr. Grumpfish himself!

This makes him begin to smile and laugh and he's so happy, he even sings thanks to the pizza. He's not grumpy anymore! The guppies sing also as the episode comes to an end...

  • The mustache worn by Deema, vaguely resembles one typically seen in Super Mario Brothers.
  • The Grumpfish may have been possibly inspired by Squidward from Spongebob. Note their similiar expressions, colors, and personality.
  • The Banana dish, "Banana Nana Fofana", based on a phrase said in "The Name Game" song.
  • Error: in one point Deema is wearing white earrings while she is chef. But in other instances she has her normaly orange earrings.
  • Apparently Gil is afraid of Mr. Grumpfish.
  • Oddly, Rotten tomato resembles a strawberry.
