The Wrong Stuff! was episode 56.


As Cyril is about to launch his own Satellite TV service, the notion excites Ralph and Schaeffer over 40 sports channels, while the Pigs attempt to transmit a message to their mother for Mother's Day. Elsewhere, to prove to his parents he is capable of handling his own dog, Bert allows Bentley to watch over Broo for the weekend. He fails though, when Broo gets trapped inside Cyril's satellite, thus leading to a time sensitive chase to save him.


As Cyril is preparing to launch his own satellite, Sneer-1 (aprox. 340 television channels, of which 40 are sports channels), Ralph and Schaeffer are ready for all the numerous sports packages available (Schaeffer even invested in a giant TV for the Blue Spruce Cafe) while Bentley desperately wants a puppy, so Bert allows him to watch Broo for a few days.

While Ralph and Schaeffer await the launch of Cyril's satellite, which rivals Knox's in scope and magnitude, Bentley has little lack of concentration when he should be watching Broo.

Three days after Cyril's satellite is launched, the only possible programming turns out to be the Pigs doing a tribute to their mom, who bless her heart, is sick and tired of her boys in a loop. Thus, Cyril has no option but to blow up his own satellite while in its wake, Knox's satellite system reigns supreme.




  • Schaeffer: [the Pigs' broadcast for their mother has been on TV for three days straight, Ralph and Schaeffer are at the Blue Spruce] It's on *every* channel!
  • Ralph: [wails] All 340! No Hockey, no football, no Championship d Darts! No Divisional Synchronized Swimming Finals!
  • Schaeffer: I don't think this is going to be very good for business, Ralph.
  • Ralph: [tearful] I think I'm going to cry, Schaeffer!


  • Cyril finally blew up the satellite but unfortunately got Knox's screen and they all scream in fear to turn it off.
  • In one shot during the scene where Bert, Cedric, Broo, and Bentley escape from the launch point, Nicole is missing her sleeves.
