Ready, Gnasher? Let's go!
# Playing by the rules
# Is highly overrated
# Unstoppable, unstoppable, yeah
# They can't hold us back
# We'll make the most of every second
# Unstoppable, unstoppable, yeah
# After all is said and done
# Shout one for all and all for fun!
# Nothing's going to bring us down today
# Open up your eyes The world outside is waiting. #
They won't know what hit them!
Oh, I reckon they will - it's got his face on it.
Sh! It's starting.
Tomorrow, Beanotown elects its next mayor.
To show why I deserve your vote, I've got you all a present -
a new waxwork of the most handsome, hard-working
and, above all, humble man in Beanotown -
This represents my new approach to menacing.
Vote for me and I'll make Beanotown a prank free zone.
Oh, yeah? We'll see about that!
Right. For as long as I'm mayor, all skateboards are banned!
-Vote for Scrimp! Vote for scrimp!
He can't to do that. He can't do that!
Can he do that?
He might THINK he can, but we won't let him get away with it.
Um, Dennis, he HAS gotten away with it.
Skateboards are banned as long as he's mayor!
Yeah, but how long's that?
We just have to make sure that he loses the vote tomorrow.
And I know how.
HIS STOMACH GROWLS
Hmm, lunchtime, ha-ha!
Right. Time to make that waxwork work for us.
Gnasher, it's snack time.
Mmm, looks delicious.
Ugh! You can't move in this town for menaces!
Hey, come back with my lunch!
Sure you're up for this, Pie-Face?
Yeah, I'm world champion at standing still and doing nothing.
Oi! What are you doing?
Mayor Scrimp's orders -
to protect this priceless work of art from any more menacing pranks.
Well, he needn't worry, nothing gets past old Slipper.
Time to show the town my new approach to menacing.
Careful now, Mrs McGinty, let me help you across the road.
Ah! My toe!
I don't believe it! Did you see who that was?!
I know! Father Christmas, at this time of year!
What? No! No, it was Mayor Scrimp!
SHE COUGHS AND SPLUTTERS
Mayor Scrimp! How could you?!
Ten-shun! Stand up straight!
Enemy fire! Enemy fire! Evasive manoeuvres!
Who did that?!
That should do the trick!
Time to rescue Pie-Face.
Oi! What's under the sheet, lads?
Er, Pie-Face, disguised as a ghost.
Very funny. You just keep away from this waxwork.
I have to make sure this vote runs smoothly.
Ha-ha! Nice one, Pie-Face.
You can stop doing the pose now.
No, I can't! Ooh! Stiff!
Ha-ha-ha! Sounds like Scrimp's a goner.
Come on, we don't want to miss this.
Right, all of you take it easy. Back up, back up.
What are you all on about? I haven't done anything!
A likely story. We all saw you.
I didn't think a new approach to menacing
meant YOU'D be doing the menacing!
You're not fit to be mayor, so none of us will be voting for you!
Yes! Now let's get our skateboards back.
Which leaves us one tiny question -
who is going to be the new mayor?
Surely you are the obvious choice, Father?
Oh, no, no, I couldn't possibly...
Oh, very well!
As you all insist, I accept!
All those in favour?
May I present to you the new Mayor of Beanotown.
My first act as mayor is to end Scrimp's ban on skateboards!
Oh! Maybe he's not so bad after all.
And replace it with a ban on skateboards, bicycles,
catapults, water pistols,
water bombs, hand buzzers
and anything else that may be used by a menace!
-I'm in heaven!
Yeah, he's not SO bad. He's worse!
-Wakey-wakey, Assistant Junior Apprentice Parky Scrimp.
All our gear, gone!
Scrimp doesn't seem so bad now.
Let Scrimp stick to picking litter.
It takes a man like my dad to deal with rubbish like you.
You're nothing without your pranking equipment.
Oh, yeah? A real menace can make a prank out of anything.
Dennis, that does it! Litter pickers are banned!
Er, re-really? Are you sure?
Absolutely! Anything that can be used for menacing gets banned!
OK, you heard the man. Hand them over. Right.
Time for plan D and G.
Gnash, gnash and gnash!
Lovely mince for you, Mrs McGinty.
Now, where are my paper bags?
Again with the Mrs McGinty!
Ah! What happened?!
Did my black pudding explode again?
THE MENACES LAUGH
I saw that! Paper bags are now banned!
Ha-ha-ha! Then we'll just find something else to use!
Urgh! Still a stinky smell!
Don't worry, Miss, we'll shift it.
They did what?!
Well, there's only one sensible response to that,
-and that's to ban hairdryers!
Da-da-ra-da! Ha-ha! My favourite colour.
1730 hours -
time for your daily watering.
THE MENACES LAUGH
From now on, watering cans are banned, and so is paint.
Hang on just a second!
How's a chap to keep his garden spruce if he can't water it?
Look, I realise these bans are causing a few problems...
A few? Without paper bags no-one's buying any meat!
Look at the state of my hair! I can't fix it without a hairdryer!
Just give me a little more time, I've almost beaten those menaces!
Oh, yeah? Want to bet?
Right, gang, this is the big one.
Dirty socks - check.
Line of underpants - check.
Let's see Walter's dad try and ban this one.
Time for Operation Underpants!
Stand firm! We can take anything they throw at us!
Ah! Except stinky socks!
Socks are banned!
Everybody calm down! There's no need to...
Argh! I can't see!
Tactical withdrawal! Follow me!
Stop it! You're causing chaos!
No, you're causing chaos,
we were just standing here.
Time for the pants de resistance!
One of Baby B's used nappies.
That does it!
As of now, all forms of underwear are banned!
-Don't be ridiculous!
We were better off with Scrimp!
Sergeant Slipper! Do something!
Eurgh! I intend to.
I suggest yesterday's vote be overruled
and Scrimp gets his old job back.
All in favour?
but nobody's confiscating MY underpants.
As your new mayor, I hereby ban all bans!
Oh, oh! Including the one on skateboards?
Hmmm... Oh, all right.
But don't think I'm going soft.
Let me remind you of the sort of man you're dealing with.
Ah! No, sir! Please, hang on...
Yeah, it's exactly like you -
when there's menaces about, it loses its head!
