Creature Report

Mortimer The Mimic Octopus



  • The vegimals really should have been vaccinated against the vegimal pox before it even happened.
  • At the end of the episode, there is an instant camera angle change of the last scene with the sick bay, and Dashi's skirt rips open behind Grouber.
