Plot SynopsisEdit

A garbage strike occurs in Paris, where trash is piling up. Upon hearing about a new garbage-eating microbe, Sly Sludge steals it and releases it in Paris for a sizable amount of quick cash. Unfortunately, the microbes go out of control, becoming huge blobs that eat garbage and anything else. The Planeteers have to stop the blob before it eats everything and turns the Earth into a planet of living garbage.
