Planet Tawny CD5700
Tawny is an orange planet with a rocky surface and a habitable atmosphere but with no complex life forms.
Hidden in the mountains is Catnip's headquarters. A series of silver-colored cylindrical buildings with rounded tips, similar to those rockets from the space conquest. In the middle of the complex there is a large hall with glass domes where Catnip and his minions usually receive their guests and foes.
Mauzarella: There I was, the great "Mauzarella", the greatest Space Ranger in the galaxy, keeper of the peace, heroine of countless planets and savior of entire species; unbeatable, unconquerable, flawless and....
Mauzarella: Hey! I'm telling the story here.
Kala: But you were!, it was all over the news.
Elma: Shhh! Let her tell the story...
Mauzarella:Ahem! Yes, I had fallen into the clutches of the terrifying Mob Boss CatNip, most wanted by the Rangers of the Organized Exoplanet Systems and scourge of the habitants of the galaxy.Hopeless, I could either reveal the secrets of my organization or fight to the end.His interrogation techniques were brutal, but a mouse as fierce and strong as me wouldn't give in so quickly.
Catnip, a big, corpulent cat, was pacing around the room while Mr. Mittens, a scruffy, thin cat with a crazy look, tortured Mauzarella with small electric shocks.
It was the only sound Mauzarella could make, since she was chained to a wall, arms and legs wide spread with a gag covering her mouth. However, each of those sounds made Mr. Mittens excited.
Mr. Mittens: HE, hehE... Zip ZAp!
The great Mob Boss, who always wore a white blazer along with a cane decorated with the skull of some unfortunate rodent on the handle, approaches Mauzarella and pushes Mr. Mittens carefully to the side.
CatNip: Are you ready to talk honey? or Would you rather let Mr. Mittens here to have some more fun with you?
Mauzarella: Fummfu fmfu ffffmu fu muf!
Catnip: What did you say? I couldn't get a word of that.
Catnip removes the gag.
Catnip: What 's that?
Mauzarella: (Still inaudible)
Catnip approaches Mauzarella's mouth to hear better.
Catnip: You'd better speak up, little one, I can't hear you.
Mauzarella: I said...
CHOMP! is heard when Mauzarella viciously bites CatNip's ear.
Catnip: WRAAAAAARGHHHH!! YOU MISERABLE PIECE OF...
Catnip, after backing up a bit, removes his claw from his ear and reveals that a piece is missing in the shape of Mauzarella's teeth, causing everyone in the room to gasp loudly.
Catnip: WHAT!? WHAT IS IT?
Catnip sees his reflection on the screen of his wrist computer
Catnip: MY EAR!! MY BEAUTIFUL EAR!!
Catnip threateningly approaches Mauzarella and then lifts her head with his cane.
Catnip: You'll pay for this! After I'm done with you, not even your mother will be able to recognize you!
Mauzarella: Ha! That would make us two.
Catnip's henchmen laugh. Catnip stares at them with a threatening look and before he can say anything an alarm sound goes off and a Purrcat quickly approaches him.
Purrcat: Sir, the other Rangers have arrived
Catnip: Excellent! More heads for my trophy wall. Everyone move out! Operation Birthday Party!
Mauzarella: HAHAAA HA, HA, HA, HA, Really? Is that the best name you could think of?
Catnip: Oh, you'll see! Your friends are in for a real party.
CatNip puts the gag back on Mauzarella's mouth and leaves the room with his minions.
As soon as the room is empty, the lid of a vent falls from the ceiling followed by Maple, an ocher-colored striped squirrel, who makes a three point landing.
Maple: I thought they would never leave. Are you ok, girl?
Mauzarella: Fummfu fmfu ffffmu fu muf!
Maple: Yeah, yeah, but you should be well aware that we are seven cycles away from base.
Mauzarella: Fmfu ffffmu fu muf MUFU!!
Maple: Okay, okay, let me take this off.
Maple approaches Mauzarella's stares for a bit, and then removes the gag.
Mauzarella: IT'S A TRAP!
Maple pretends to be surprised, taking her hands to the face.
Maple: OH FOR THE BIG NUT! THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING!
At that moment, a metallic sound that comes from the back of the room is heard and attracts the attention of the Rangers. A large gate opens slowly to let in a giant dog-shaped living piñata three times the size of the Rangers.
Mauzarella and Maple: WHAT THE CHURN IS THAT!?
After taking a couple of steps into the room, the giant piñata growls and barks loudly.
Mauzarella: QUICK! GET ME OUT OF HERE!
Maple: Calm down dear, I've got this!
Maple begins cutting the chains slowly with a small blowtorch that comes out of her wrist.
Mauzarella: THAT THING DOESN'T KNOW YOU'RE IN CONTROL!
Maple cuts both foot chains, but before she can cut the hand chains, the Piñata Dog catches up and growls at Maple's back, who turns to the creature.
Maple: Oh the horror, Whatever shall we do!
Maple throws herself to the ground on her back and adopts a lady-in-disgrace pose with her arm across her forehead.
Mauzarella: QUIT GOOFING AROUND AND GET ME OUT OF HERE!
The Piñata Dog prepares to attack, opening its jaws ready to devour Maple in one bite.
Maple: I'm sorry, honey, It's the end of the line for us.
Just before it makes its move, one of the domes in the room shetteres and a small spaceship flies into the room crashing right into the piñata's neck splitting it in two and making candy rain all around the room along little toys and streamers.
The ship crashes to the ground right next to Maple and Mauzarella, who is still tied by her hands and with her legs drawn up to her abdomen.
Another Ranger comes out of the small ship. It is Neve, a white Chinchilla with a pink visor and a relaxed attitude.
Maple: What took you so long?
Neve: Try to lose a dozen guards while stealing one of their ships.
Maple: I've done it! This past Monday to be accurate!
Mauzarella: Would you two be so kind to cut the chat and GET ME OUT OF HERE?
Neve: "Yes Sir"
Neve materializes her gamma pulse pistol and shoots at the chains that held Mauzarella's wrists setting her free.
Mauzarella checks her wrists for injuries.
Neve: You're free now, right?
Maple: Ladies, are you done yet? We have company!
Catnip enters the room followed by his minions and notices that the Piñata Dog didn't have a chance against the Rangers.
Catnip: My creation! My beautiful creation! FINISH THEM!
Catnip's minions surround the Rangers who take heroic poses.
Mauzarella: And then we sweep the floor with them and we capture them all. THE END
Mauzarella is now sitting on a common bed wearing two-piece pajamas with her right arm in a sling. In front of her, two little mice are sitting on the floor paying attention to every word that comes out of her mouth. Leaning against the door is the girls' mother with her arms crossed and not very happy with what she's listening to.
Kala: HEY! WHAT HAPPENED?
Elma: YEAH!, WHERE IS THE REST OF THE STORY!?
Mauzarella: I'm sorry girls, but your mother is already giving me "the look", so it's time for bed.
Kala: IT 'S NOT FAIR!
Elma: YOU NEVER GET TO THE BEST PART!
Belle: You heard your auntie, time to sleep, now cross antennas and go to bed!
Belle: No buts, or I won't invite your auntie to sleepover again.
Kala and Elma: O... K!
The girls approach Mauzarella to join the tips of their antennas one after the other.
Kala: Good night Aunt Babs.
Elma: Get well soon!
Mauzarella: Thank you girls, Cheese Dreams!
The girls leave the room and Mauzarella and her Sister are left alone. Mauzarella grabs her own arm and makes a moderate gesture of pain.
Belle: Are you okay Babs?
Mauzarella: Don't worry Sis, this isn't going to stop me from...
Belle: Your mission to end evil?... It is a big galaxy, you know?
Mauzarella: And I'm a bigger Ranger!
Belle: The best! It's just that from time to time I get a little worried. I don't want to be in a situation where I have to explain those little mice as their heroine...
Mauzarella: Come on! That will never happen!
Belle: It better not, now rest honey.
Mauzarella: You too...
They both put their antennas together while closing their eyes, Belle leaves the room and Mauzarella settles down on the bed clumsily placing her arm over her body, she smiles and then closes her eyes to sleep.
