Rocky & Bullwinkle #4

Pottsylvania's latest plot to destroy the good old USA involves getting Americans addicted to Boris Burgers which turn those who consume them into giant over-sized bowling-ball shaped consumers in just a few bites. Let's just say it's not exactly the most subtle issue of the series. The cure for the burgers turns out to be Bullwinkle's new Mooseberry Bush Burgers which are equally scrumptious and deflate Boris' consumers but end up have an unexpected side effect of their own.

The interlude features a motivated Nell who learns Dudley Do-Right is being transferred because of the low crime rate decides to intervene and tricks an incarcerated Snidley Whiplash into in turn tricking Dudley into becoming a bank robber leaving Dudley arrested and Nell and Horse with plenty of quality time together.

Although both provide some fun moments, neither the set-up for Rocky and Bullwinkle nor the Dudley Do-Right interlude are all that special. That said, fans of the character should still enjoy themselves here.
