Cubby, this may be
our hardest mission yet.
[Cubby] Remember, kids,
the easiest way
is rarely the best way.
You're right, Cubby.
I'll always go
above and beyond
to do what's right.
-[lock unlatching]
Hi, I'm home.
Look. A perp
is breaking and entering
into his own house.
He'll know where
all the good stuff is.
The perfect crime.
Hi, honey.
Mind taking out the garbage?
He's got an accomplice.
It's an "inside" inside job.
Wait a second.
Doesn't it seem
awfully peaceful?
When was the last time
you saw
Freeze, crooks. Police!
-[tyres screech]
-[siren wailing]
Dispatch, I'm at the bank,
but I don't see
anything out of the ordinary
for a giant bank robbery.
Oh, yeah. We did it!
We got the money.
[Duke] Police. Freeze!
Oh, no. It's Duke De Tain!
[engine revs]
Why do we always
celebrate our crimes
before we get to the safe house?
[robbers grunting]
Hup, hup, hey!
Oh, thank you, Officer De Tain.
Just doing my job, sir.
You know, in hindsight,
maybe easily-carried bags
with giant dollar signs
isn't the best way
to store our money.
-[watch beeps]
-Ooh, gotta run. Remember, kids,
the easiest way
is rarely the best way.
[all cheer]
Kind of a non sequitur.
-[both grunt]
You know, Duke,
how about we walk to jail?
Yeah, it's such a lovely day.
[engine revs]
-[siren blaring]
-[criminals screaming]
-Time for a shortcut.
[criminals screaming]
-[both whimpering]
-Are we alive?
-Less talk, more hug.
Lieutenant De Tain, I see
you made it on time.
But can't you enter a room
like a normal person?
Sorry, Captain, there wasn't
time for a shoulder roll.
While admittedly effective,
your policing methods
cost this city a lot of money.
For instance, the flamingo
and tuba incident last week
-added up to
Thanks to Duke's sick heroics,
our city will never
suffer through
a flamingo and tuba
shortage again.
You're a serious ripper, dude.
Thank you, Chief Wheeler.
Aw, call me Wheelie.
Respectfully, sir,
I actually don't think
I'm psychologically
capable of that.
Time for morning announcements.
First, at the chief's request,
because it would be "rad,"
every police cruiser is now
equipped with a grappling hook.
-A harpoon.
And a medieval knight's lance.
Next, did everybody sign
the get-well card
for Officer Garner?
And speaking of poor Garner,
I need to assign
a new partner for Duke.
Any volunteers?
[car clanging]
-[alarm buzzes]
-[people clamouring]
[Wheeler] Dude, what is up?
I can't make sense of it.
Some huge emergency in the city.
That's all you, Duke.
Check it out.
Yes, sir.
[tools clicking, whirring]

-[siren wails]
[horn honks]
[people clamouring]
Chief McCloud, any idea
what's causing
all this destruction?
No idea, Duke,
but we've got our work
cut out for us.
Bob, Clemmons, I'm gonna need
a thousand throw pillows,
a water slide,
and as many architects
you can find
that play the French horn.
-Wait, why do we need
-No time!
[tyres screech]
I don't believe it.
I can see super far
with these things.
[announcer] Remember kids,
the easiest
way is rarely the best way.
Coming this November,
Cubby The Cop: The Movie.
[DJ] Here's the latest hit
from Poppy Starr.
Turn it up,
it's "The Loud Song."
Oh, I love this.
This is the loud song ♪

Oh, Cubby. If there was ever
a time I needed you, it's now.
Something large and terrible
is destroying the city.
Uh, so is that a
"Sure, I'll help you, Duke?"
Okay. I'm getting
mixed signals here.
Hm. That's odd.
Cubby, you have to stop this.
Clearly, you're having
some issues.
Let's sit and talk about it,
maybe grab a bite.
Okay, Cubby,
crushing your friend
with a massive pastry
crosses the line.
A really big, weird line.
This has to end.
Turn it up
Till it all goes away ♪
You can totally ignore it ♪
I got the answer for it ♪
It's the loud song
The loud song ♪
Captain, I think
I've got an idea
of what's happening here.
[Bennett] Good. Lieutenant.
We heard something about a movie
promotion stunt going wrong.
-Let's hear your report.
-Yes, sir.
So my childhood lion-cub
imaginary best friend,
Cubby, has reappeared
as a 200-foot anthropomorphic
balloon monster
bent on randomly
destroying the city
while very loud pop music
emanates from his feet.
I have to lie down.
Yes, sir. He's heading toward
City Centre Square.
I'm gonna try and catch up
and stop him. Duke out.

[tyres screeching]
Ah, good morning,
Officer De Tain.
Please, allow me.
[car crashes]
Huh? What?
[tyres screeching]
[tense music]
Cubby, stop. Please.
Don't make me hurt you.
No. Cubby's a symbol of peace,
justice and hard work.
I can't destroy him
like he's some horrible monster.
The kids are watching.
That's it.
Bap, bap, the loud song ♪
Aha! The giant boomerang store.
[tyres screeching]
[foreboding music]
[building creaks]
This is way not cool, dude.
Agreed, chief.
We have to clear this building.
Where's Lieutenant De Tain?
[rock music]
-[engine revving]
-[tyres screech]
This building can't take
much more of this.
Duke, you're maxed out!
[Wheeler] You gotta bail
over here and cut the rope!
[Wheeler] Lieutenant, quick!
Just pop the balloon,
destroying it like some monster,
forever tarnishing
any positive,
aspirational message
Cubby may have for children.
It's the easiest,
therefore, best way.
Uh, yeah, I was kinda hoping
to avoid pretty much,
exactly that.
Like, very specifically,
exactly what you just said.
But I guess I have no choice.
[sombre music]
Sorry, Cubby.
[Cubby] Remember, kids.
The easiest way
is rarely the best way.
You're right, Cubby.
I'll always go above and beyond
to do what's right.
Dude, what are you doing?
You'll float away, too!
Sorry, chief. A real cop
knows the easiest way
is rarely the best way!
We make sacrifices
to help our city.
The kids are watching!
[tranquil music]
Above and beyond, Cubby.
This is the loud song
The loud song ♪
Turn it up, up, up
It's the loud song ♪
Once it gets into your ear ♪
It's the only thing
You'll hear ♪
