Scooter: Secret Agent: episode guide
episodes 1-13 | episodes 14-26
Scooter Carpenter has a unique ability to cause major disasters wherever he goes. He is a klutz and also a pizza delivery boy, but only because his best friend Melanie's father, Attilio, owns the pizza shop.
But when Scooter witnesses the disappearance of Secret Agent X-19, his life is irrevocably changed.
Unaware that X-19's communications device is now in the hands of a sixteen-year-old, Agency Chief Taipan sends out the details of her next, top-secret mission. Suddenly, Scooter sees an opportunity to prove to himself that he's not the under-achiever that everyone thinks he is.
No longer will he be a simple pizza delivery boy, with a unique ability for causing chaos. He is now a Secret Agent — with a unique ability for causing chaos.
The mission the Agency sets is to retrieve the world's most valuable stamp.
The Agency dispatches a strange gadget for the mission; it's a heel of a shoe. Melanie's friend, Katrina, who is a genius with all things mechanical, works out that the heel is rocket propelled, enabling the wearer to fly.
Scooter tracks down the stolen stamp to the bad guys that he saw when X-19 disappeared: Mackenna, Fridge and Ratborough. Scooter's combination of optimism, clumsiness and self-confidence, combined with a lot of good luck, results in him successfully retrieving the stamp. Never mind the minor complication of destroying an entire warehouse full of fireworks.
With this success, Scooter firmly believes that he is now a Secret Agent. Something big has a hold of him now — his destiny.

Scooter's next mission is to find out who is behind the theft of a number of historic steam trains. The gadget he receives for this mission is a sports car! Luckily, it comes with a remote control — handy, as Scooter doesn't drive.
Scooter uses his remote controlled car to track down Mackenna and his gang but things don't go as planned and the thieves steal the car. Undaunted Scooter convinces Melanie and Katrina to work with him on the case. Katrina suspects Melanie agrees because she has feelings for Scooter (which she denies of course) but both girls are more than a little fascinated by this new world of espionage.
Together the kids find the stolen steam trains, only to end up in the driver's cabin of a runaway train. Sadly the sports car is destroyed, but the mission is a success. Taipan is pleased and Scooter is thrilled.

Operation: Chocolate Soldier
The comm-link alerts Scooter to X-19's next mission: to stop the world's oldest and most expensive shard of chocolate from being stolen at a Chocolate Expo. Scooter pleads for Melanie and Katrina to help. They agree, but Katrina admits to a major chocolate addiction — she has to fight to maintain control around all the chocolate.
At the Expo, Scooter masquerades as a chocolate soldier to catch the bad guys. Unfortunately, they have the same idea and thinking Scooter is the real soldier they replace him with their own man. It looks as if Scooter will fail, but in the nick of time he frees himself and, still encased in chocolate, stumbles into the Expo destroying all the intricate chocolate displays. The shard is saved and the mission is another success.

Scooter's next assignment is to stop the Whistling Thief who has been terrorising rich hotel patrons by stealing their precious jewels. No one has seen the thief but they all hear a whistled tune moments before they discover their jewellery has been stolen. Scooter tries to get Melanie to help but she can't, there's a Health Inspector coming to the pizza shop and Attilio's making her clean the place from top to bottom. That leaves Katrina to help Scooter.
Together they pose as rich kids staying at the hotel with Katrina wearing a million dollar necklace provided as bait by the Agency. Melanie is jealous of Katrina spending so much time with Scooter, but Katrina assures her she is not interested in him at all. In fact, she doesn't understand why Melanie is either.
Katrina and Scooter continue with their 'fool-proof' plan to trap the thief until the thief, a parrot under the direction of Ratborough, steals the necklace from around Katrina's neck. Scooter has to use all his cunning to find the parrot and get the necklace back, all the while, remaining oblivious to Melanie's affections.

Melanie's pesky little brother, Mario, gets hold of Scooter's comm-link and finds the next gadget delivery: Mask-In-A-Can. With it, anyone can quickly assume someone else's identity. It's for the latest mission — to keep the most valuable comic in the world from being stolen. The comic is to be auctioned by an obnoxious rich kid, Vern.
Unaware their gadgetry has been intercepted by Mario, Scooter, Melanie and Katrina stake out the comic book location. Mario uses the Mask-In-A-Can to disguise himself as Vern (whose photo was in the pack) to buy lollies. Thinking Mario is the real Vern, Mackenna kidnaps him and quickly discovers his very useful gadget.
Disguising Ratborough as Vern they steal the comic. But their victory is short-lived as Scooter, pretending to be Mackenna, gets the comic back and saves Mario. The mission is a success, and Scooter's real identity is still safe, for the moment.

Scooter gets the next mission brief from Taipan: to retrieve a stolen Micro-droid that can rewire damaged brain tissue, and get it to the hospital where its creator is in a coma.
Scooter tracks down the Micro-droid to Mackenna's warehouse. On the way, he uses the Micro-droid's mini cold fusion reactor recharger to get Attilio's new pizza oven to work. Mario turns the charger to maximum creating a ticking nuclear time bomb.
Discovered in the warehouse by Mackenna and company, Scooter accidentally swallows the Micro-droid and it goes to work on his brain, enabling him to deal with Mackenna's Workers in true James Bond fashion. But now Scooter is faced with a dilemma. He not only has to save the Micro-droid creator's life, but Attilio's new oven is set to explode.
Scooter, with a little help from Melanie, saves the day all round, even after he sneezes out the Micro-droid and returns to his usual, bumbling self.

Operation: Little Dragon
A young child, set to become the leader of the Kumai kingdom, is Scooter's latest mission. Scooter must act as his bodyguard and get him to the initiation ceremony on time.
Scooter decides to hide Ban-Tun in plain view and gets him a job in the pizza shop. This quiet, calm and serious boy starts to develop a taste for being a regular kid and doesn't want to be the Chosen One.
Luckily, Scooter manages to convince Ban-Tun to take up his destiny. Ban-Tun agrees, as long as he gets one more scooter ride first. Scooter takes him out and he is promptly kidnapped by Mackenna.
A series of fortunate accidents helps Scooter rescue Ban-Tun and he delivers him to the temple just in time. Ban-Tun passes a difficult test by using some pizza making theories taught to him by Scooter. Scooter is chuffed that he helped a boy become a true leader.

Operation: Mummy's Curse
Mackenna and his gang set a trap for X-19, by letting the Agency know of their plan to steal an Egyptian mummy.
Legend has it that all who come in contact with the mummy become cursed. Scooter is sure it's true since he has been walking around with the mummy's forefinger (which he accidentally broke off on an earlier visit to the museum) and bad luck has dogged him ever since. Katrina gives him a special device to protect him, but Melanie, still concerned about Scooter's safety and suspicious about the mission, convinces Katrina to follow him to the museum.
Once there, everyone falls victim to fear. Scooter keeps his identity a secret by wrapping himself up in paper towels from the toilet so he looks just like a deranged mummy. The next day the kids discover the museum burned down that night and everything was destroyed except the storeroom — where the mummy lay. Scooter just got away with it again.

Scooter's next mission is to protect a singer who is also a double agent. Nanushka has requested that X-19 contact her in person but if Scooter does, everyone will realise he's been impersonating an Agent. Instead, Scooter poses as one of her crew and prevents her kidnapping. Even so, Nanushka works out Scooter's real identity and he fears that she will tell the Agency. But Nanushka doesn't do this; instead she gives him a kiss for saving her.
Melanie finds out and her jealousy is piqued, although Scooter doesn't notice this. When Nanushka admits that she's fallen in love with Scooter and that she wants to leave the Agency, Scooter fears he'll fail the mission. Melanie has a brilliant plan: she'll pose as his girlfriend. Nanushka is devastated but decides to stay with the Agency and never love again.

Scooter is sent to find out whether a legendary fairy does exist. If it does, he must keep the fairy from falling into the wrong hands. Melanie is the only one who believes in fairies. It is her strength of belief that leads the kids right to where the fairy's hidden. Only once they've found it, Melanie doesn't want to give it to the Agency.
The bad guys aren't far behind and a chase ensues. But when the kids get to safety they find the supposedly 'dead' fairy is missing. Melanie explains that the touch of a believer brought the fairy back to life and it flew away. Scooter decides to be loyal to his friend over the Agency and tells them the fairy legend was a hoax.

Scooter is sent to investigate the purported death of an artist, who, they eventually discover, isn't dead at all. Melanie's amazing acting skills help the kids find the very-much-alive artist, even though Scooter manages to destroy an up-market gallery in the process, but this mission is also a major step towards Scooter's undoing. Fridge spots them and now the bad guys are sure the kids are linked to X-19.
Meanwhile, Attilio is unwittingly in danger of exposing Scooter to the Agency. In order to look professional he uses Scooter's briefcase (the comm-link) in a meeting with the Bank Manager and accidentally sets off a distress beacon to the Agency. Too many things have gone wrong this time and Scooter fears his life as a Secret Agent might all be over soon.

With Attilio and Mario, Scooter, Melanie and Katrina go to the bush on a mission to find a crashed space probe, which contains alien spores. Of course, Mackenna's gang are on the same trip and they all get stuck in the remote and treacherous valley, which is the site of the crash. But the spore pod is missing. Luckily for Scooter the legendary Beast Boy leaves the pod for the kids in exchange for food. Then the car breaks down and as they try to work out what's wrong a local, Wild John Baxter, disguised as the Beast Boy sneaks in and takes the pod. Scooter is devastated. The pod is gone, they're stuck in the wilderness and for the first time, he's failed a mission.

Operation: Beast Boy
The Agency informs X-19 that the legendary Beast Boy has been terrorising the local area and he must be captured. While the car is being fixed, Attilio books him and the kids into a local motel. While Attilio tries to impress the owner, Maggie, with his bravery, Scooter finds a network of tunnels and evidence of the Beast Boy. He also accidentally finds his way into the Agency and discovers Mackenna's gang have stolen the pod. But it is Scooter who is caught and blamed for the pod's disappearance. Luckily the Beast Boy helps Scooter escape, recaptures the pod and gives it to Scooter. Mackenna and Ratborough are captured by ‘Maggie' and a swarm of Agents. But the truth is out. Maggie is really Taipan and had set up this mission to try to trap the person she deduced must have taken Agent X-19's comm-link. She's amazed to find that person is Scooter. The comm-link is taken from him and Taipan warns him to stay out of the affairs of the Agency or there will be consequences.
