Plot SynopsisEdit

Verminous Skumm creates a chemical disease called Rat Rot and contaminates several water supplies with it. Anyone who drinks the contaminated water will turn into a mutant rat like himself and be under his control. Unfortunately, Wheeler, Linka, and Gi are among his victims. It's up to Kwame and Ma-Ti to rescue them and the other mutated people before the whole world is overrun with mutant rats.

Significant Moments and FactsEdit

When the Planeteers are shown the image of Verminous Skumm on the Planet Vision, Linka says "I am sick" in Russian, and then repeats it in English. Interestingly enough, the Russian equivalent of "sick" (bolen) is used in masculine. The correct, feminine form would be bol'naya.


  • Linka: Verminous Skumm. Ya bolen! I am sick!
    Gi: I have no idea what you just said Linka, but I know I agree.
