Plot SynopsisEdit

The Planeteers investigate Sly Sludge's latest claim of solving the world's garbage problem and find him at a farm where he uses a shrink ray from Dr. Blight to shrink garbage to reduce its space-taking. He then turns the beam on them, shrinking them to the size of bugs and dumping them on his farm's garbage site. At their size, it is an endless sea of garbage with many hidden dangers.
