Egon ate his breakfast in the dining area and greeted Slimer. Slimer emptied a box of Freaky Flakes into his mouth and added milk. Egon warned Slimer to go easy on the cereal. Slimer showed him the back of the cereal box. If 100 coupons were sent in, he would receive a Super Duper Spy Kit. Egon broke it to Slimer it was going to take him a long time to accrue 100 coupons and walked away. Slimer got an idea and took out every box of Freaky Flakes stored in the kitchen cupboards. Eventually, Slimer ate through 100 boxes and prepared an envelope. He squeezed out the window and mailed the coupons. Almost in an instant, a mail van arrived and Slimer had his kit.

A tape recorder congratulated Slimer and informed him his mission was to protect the world from evil. The recorder self-destructed in one second. Slimer put on his spy gear and wandered around the city. He tried out the periscope hidden in his ring and watched a bird take a bath. The bird wasn't too happy with being spied on and drew the curtains out. Slimer overheard a conversation from a sewer drain and realized something was wrong. He entered the drain and arrived at a spooky mansion. He observed Bruiser when an odd-looking mad scientist named Dr. Strangedog. Strangedog planned on unleashing his Pet-O-Matic Ray on New York City. It would put all dogs in charge and turn humans into their pets. Slimer imagined the Ghostbusters acting like dogs and knew it was up to him to save the day. Bruiser started the three minute countdown. Strangedog ordered Bruiser to guard the cannon and then went to his office.

Slimer brought out a robot kitten and activated it. Bruiser became nervous but remembered his orders. The kitten rubbed his legs and walked away. Bruiser lost control and chased after the kitten. Slimer studied the control panel in the meantime. Bruiser caught up to the kitten but it roared at him and proceeded to tear him limb from limb. Bruiser staggered back to his post and grabbed Slimer. Bruiser rolled him up and punted him outside like a football. Strangedog checked in on the noise then left again. A giant bone landed near Bruiser. He couldn't resist the sweet aroma and grabbed it. Slimer pressed his ring and a truck took off. The bone was tied to the truck's bumper. Bruiser was carried off and Strangedog was caught in his path. Slimer was unable to stop the Pet-O-Matic Ray. He flew outside and deflected the ray back at the mansion. The mansion exploded and only a thin strip of land was left. Strangedog berated Bruiser and the piece of land collapsed. Slimer returned to the Firehouse and saw both Egon and Ray on all fours. Luckily, they were just looking for one of Ray's contact lenses. Slimer howled happily.
