Nate Wright, a detention-riddled sixth grader (and drummer for the greatest garage band in the history of the galaxy, Enslave the Mollusk!) hopes to capture beautiful Jenny’s heart by winning “The Nicholodeon”, the first prize in his school’s Battle of the Bands. But when Artur and Jenny team up with Nate’s arch-rival Gina to form the sap-pop band Rainbows and Ponies, he’s gotta take his game to an all-star level. Using his superior cartoon skills, Nate concocts a super-charged, spectacular dedication to Jenny during his song’s climax, which will blow Rainbows and Ponies away and make Jenny realize her mistake. But since it’s Nate Wright, the plan backfires, and Enslave the Mollusk gets disqualified. Nate manages to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat with a little honest help from Artur. Nate and his band win The Nicholodeon, but Jenny rewards Artur for his honesty by agreeing to “have steadiness” with him.
