(September 19th, 1987) Guy Newswarthy searches all over the studio for Arnie, only to find him sleeping under the newsdesk. It turns out that Arnie’s been living under there. And not just sleeping, he’s got a hot tub, waterbed, and all sorts of other luxuries too. The downside to this situation is the Navy jets that continue to use the giant newsdesk as a landing strip and are constantly waking him.
Arnie, feeling that he’s fallen into a rut, has called in a specialist to help change his image. Ms. Franwell Gesh is an expert at such things and arrives to give Arnie a total make-over, and as she says, “To catapult Arnie to super-stardom, and make him into a real stud-buffalo- WHOOOO!”
Well, the plan backfires. Arnie is instead turned into a smarmy, lounge sleezeball. Guy tries to return Arnie to his old self and shows a brief and very damaging documentary about Arnies’s early years. Arnie, determined to show up Guy, fights back by setting up a live camera out in public so he can communicate with his “fans”. Unfortunately Arnie’s public smarminess causes such a panic that the police and several branches of the armed forces come after him.
