“Sweet As Candy: Whatever-You-Want-Land, Part 3” - Episode 58
Earth human Nicki and her canine-humanoid companions Gneeecey and Sooperflea are still stranded in magical Whatever-You-Want-Land. In last week’s episode, the self-centered Gneeecey’s dream of reuniting with the fiancée who jilted him, the glamorous Golden Retriever-type canine-humanoid Goonafina Blopperdang, was all but dashed—due to his inability to learn from the past. In preparation for what he had dreamed would be a romantic evening, Gneeecey had also wished aloud for Zinfandel, two sparkling goblets, and of course, his beloved. Instead of wine, he had unwittingly summoned Zinfandel, the leader of Planet Eccchs…who has been watching him for a long time.
Meanwhile, back in that other dimension of Perswayssick County, the evil federation STEM continues, in Gneeecey’s absence, to plot a takeover of the county. Murderous alien gangster Markman, Redheaded Broken-nosed Mark is the self-proclaimed boss. Meanwhile, Sulak, the Demon Clown of Bathrooms, and Ebegneeezer Gesundheit Eeeceygnay, Gneeecey’s stranded lookalike from Planet HyenaZitania, both currently occupying Gneeecey’s mansion, have decided to double-cross Mark. And wimpy Brown-haired Mark has earned the wrath of the ruthless redhead. He’s failed, miserably so, to accomplish his assignment—impersonating Nicki and intimidating Gneeecey’s Doctor Alexandra Idnas and therapist Ingabore Scriblig. Looks like the dark-haired Markman has decided to team up with Sulak and Ebegneeezer. And Gneeecey’s protegé and Gneeezles’s Restaurant delivery boy, sulky giant mouse Altitude shows up at the mansion looking for his pay and notices something different about his boss.
Redheaded Broken-nosed Mark shows up at the Murgatroyd Avenue office of Dr. Alexandra Idnas and Ingabore Scriblig with arrest warrants.
Back in Whatever-You-Want-Land, Goonafina Blopperdang unexpectedly rematerializes. Flea graciously comes to her aid, incurring the jealous wrath of Gneeecey.

Music/Intro: Hi there, I’m author and radio host Vicki Solá, welcoming you to Perswayssick Radio: Unearthly Comedy. I invite you to escape with me into the bizarre dimension of Perswayssick County, where wackiness rules! The laughs begin when I morph into my alter ego, radio DJ Nicki Rodriguez and clash with the zany, alien canine-humanoid Gneeecey! And now, I turn it over to my other self, Nicki, and the gang….

NARRATOR VICKI SOLÁ: Earthling Nicki Rodriguez and her canine-humanoid companions “Zig” Gneeecey and Fleaglossitty “Flea” Floppinsplodge, otherwise known as Sooperflea, still find themselves stranded in a seemingly benign, magical dimension where just about anything you wish for can materialize. Well, kind of…. In last week’s Episode 57, “I Love You More: Whatever-You-Want-Land, Part 2,” the self-centered Gneeecey’s dream of reuniting with the fiancée who jilted him, glamorous Golden Retriever-type canine-humanoid Goonafina Blopperdang, was all but dashed—due to his inability to learn from the past. In preparation for what he had dreamed would be a romantic evening, Gneeecey had also wished aloud for Zinfandel, two sparkling goblets, and of course, his beloved. Instead of wine, he had unwittingly summoned Zinfandel, the leader of his Planet Eccchs….

DIROCTOR BIZZIG “ZIG” GNEEECEY: Haaah? Whaaat?
ZINFANDEL, THE VOICE IN THE SKY: I said, you never seem to learn, do you, son?
G: Who are ya, really? Ya caaan’t really be—
Z: As usual, son, you must be told things more than once. Many times, in fact. I said, you ordered me. Don’t you remember? This is Zinfandel, your leader. Leader of your Planet Eccchs!
G: Heh, heh…. I thought I ordered wine an’ a coupla nice glaaases, not yooooou!
Z: I have been watching you, Zig Gneeecey. Monitoring you all the way from Planet Eccchs.
G: Heh, heh…didn’t know ya could see me all the way from there….
SOOPERFLEA, AKA FLEA, AKA FLEAGLOSSITTY FLOPPINSPLODGE: Remember, Zig, when us fifteen million Planet Eccchsers got stranded in the dimension of Perswayssick County, an’ Zinfandel charged you wit’ leadin’ us all an’ findin’ a way to get us back to our planet?
G: Shaaaddup, Fleaglossitty—no one asked for your input—
Z: Quiet, Bizzig “Zig” Gneeecey! Fleaglossitty Floppinsplodge speaks the truth! I have been watching you for a long time. It appears that you have indeed been leading our stranded Planet Eccchsers, but perhaps spending a bit too much time elevating and enriching your ego-driven self—at the expense of our many citizens—and your appointed mission!
G: Ah, hah, haah, fiduciary! SFX: [Clinking Coins]
F: Bless ya, Zig.
G: Aaah—there ya go again! Go bless your stinkin’ self, Fleaglossitty—
Z: That was uncalled for, Zig Gneeecey! You must be allergic to the truth!
G: Is it too late for me to change my ways? Ouch!
Z: Get up off your knees, son. It is never too late…until it is….
G: Will I ever get back my Goonafina?
Z: That all depends upon you, Zig Gneeecey. It hinges upon whether you choose to learn from your past mistakes and proceed to alter your ways.
F: Zinfandel, is there any way ya can get us back to our Perswayssick County? Better yet, can ya get all of us back to Planet Eccchs, an’ our Earthlin’ friend Nicki here back to her planet?
Z: Fleaglossitty I applaud you for your caring ways and many heroic actions. As you know, we do maintain an electronic link-up between your Perswayssick County and our Planet Eccchs. Our computers have a twenty-seven-zillion-point-two terafluroflop capability. And as you know, we can even transfer certain light materials back and forth, but alas, we have no way to transfer heavier materials or living beings.
F: I know…I know….
Z: In fact, the me that you see here before you, the Zinfandel that you see standing here in these immaculate white sands, is only an extension of myself, a mental manifestation traveling across several dimensions. Most of me—my solid physical form, that is, remains on our Planet Eccchs. I assure you, though, that our Planet Eccchs scientists are working tirelessly—day and night, thirteen months a year, to resolve this crisis. My energies are fading…I must go now…I will try to return…in the meantime, be true to your inner selves!

NARRATOR VICKI SOLÁ: Meanwhile, back in that other dimension of Perswayssick County, the evil federation known as STEM continues, in Gneeecey’s absence, to plot a takeover of the county. Murderous alien gangster Markman, Redheaded Broken-nosed Mark is the self-proclaimed boss. Meanwhile, Sulak, the Demon Clown of Bathrooms, and Ebegneeezer Gesundheit Eeeceygnay, Gneeecey’s stranded lookalike from Planet HyenaZitania, both currently occupying Gneeecey’s mansion, have decided to double-cross their leader.

He failed, and miserably so, to accomplish his assignment—that of impersonating Nicki and intimidating Gneeecey’s Doctor Alexandra Idnas and therapist Ingabore Scriblig. Looks like the dark-haired Markman has decided to team up with Sulak and Ebegneeezer, too.

SULAK, THE DEMON CLOWN OF BATHROOMS: Ebegneeezer, I heard the door open. We wasn’t expectin’ no one today, was we?
EBEGNEEEZER GESUNDHEIT EEECEYGNAY: No, Sulak, old chap. I do not believe that we were anticipating the arrival of any visitors.
S: This is fishy—
SFX: [Squeaking Sneakers]
S: Eeeeeeeeeks! A giant mouse!
E: No worries, old boy, you can come down off that chair. It is only Gneeecey’s protegé, his Gneeezle’s Restaurant delivery boy, that rather hapless, oversized rodent named Altitude.
ALTITUDE: An’ I ain’t a rather happy mouse, boss! Ain’t been paid in three weeks now, an’ I want my money—all two bucks an’ fifty-one cents! An’ I want it in cash—not a lousy bouncin’ check! Gimme my money right now!
E: We must take a look at the books first before we dispense any funds, old chap.
A: Hey—I ain’t old! An’ why’re ya talkin’ so funny—wait—you ain’t my boss—you ain’t Gneeecey—you’re that evil Ebegneeezer lookalike guy from Planet HyenaZitania! The one that went missin’! What did you do wit’ my boss? Hah? Hah? What did ya do wit’ the real Gneeecey?
S: Get him—quick!

F: Yeah, Zig, where ya goin’?

N: Well, please, don’t go too far…we still don’t really know much about this place.
F: Yeah, Zig, please stay where we can see ya—Nicki’s right. We gotta stay together. We still don’t actually know what’s what around here.
G: Stinkin’ whatever….
F: There he goes, Nicki. Looks like he’s jus’ walkin’ along the shoreline where we can still see him.
N: Yeah, Flea. He’s got lots to think about after that surprise encounter with Zinfandel. He’s depressed—I’d actually be surprised if he wasn’t.
F: Yeah, he knows he’s really gone off course wit’ his mission—the one Zinfandel charged him wit’. An’ now he knows that Zinfandel has been watchin’ him the whole time.
