Alien Alan

Episode Four of Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space is titled Alien Alan.  The premise of the episode is that Alan has been brainwashed by an evil alien named Magneto.  Can our heroes survive when their leader is working for the enemy?

I have no idea why Magneto only brainwashed one Earthling to be his slave, instead of brainwashing all six of them.

Alien Alan easily captures our heroes, and they get sent to the mines.  Our heroes split up into two groups and escape.  Group One figures out how to get Alan back to normal, while Group Two gets a spaceship and flies them out of the city.

An aerial battle ensues, but Alan manages to escape by flying the spaceship in simple football plays. When our heroes reach Magneto, they use the brainwashing machine to turn him into a good person.  Our heroes then destroy all of Magneto's evil magnet machines before leaving.

This episode is merely okay.  It's mostly made up of chase/escape sequences.  It would have been better, if they focused more on the evil Alien Alan plotline.  He only appears for about a minute, at most.

The best part about the episode was the animation.  This show usually has bad/cheap animation, but there were about five to six minutes of legitimately good animation.  I don't know how to explain this.  Maybe there was a different storyboarder that week, because the aliens and everything else moved in fun, creative ways.  I liked it.
