Fluffy Bunny Show Edit

The Story Edit
Anita and Victor sing and dance to The Secret Show theme, for Marlon, who fails them for talent. Upon entering Changed Daily's office they learn that THEM have entered the world anthem competition, and they must go find out why. Victor has a theory that includes THEM using a song to hypnotize people, but no one take hims seriously. Upon getting to the competition they meet up with Alphonse who has also entered the competition because "art takes many forms". His song however is a single monotonous beat of his tympani with him repeatedly saying "the world is dying." Later, Victor and Anita also discover that Ray and three UZZ agents have also joined the competition under the name "Raymondo and The Rayettes" Ray and the three agents he came with then discover Doctor Doctor's plan by becoming the first victims of it. She uses a song to hypnotize them (an idea she lifted from some old cartoon show).
Meanwhile during the competition Alphonse finishes his song, and Stacy Stern, the event's host, intro's Sweet Little Granny and Sweet Old Grandpa. Ray and the other agents come out of their trance like state as THEM commandeer Granny's song, and Doctor Doctor begins her song. Uzz attempt to drown her out to little a veil. Alphonse's tympani drowns her out, and he adds a new lyric,"The world is saved." Everyone applauds him to Victor's dismay. Later it's also discovered that Alphonse's song won the competition, once again to Victor's disgust.
