Dog Man 11: Twenty Thousand Fleas Under the Sea (the latest full colour book in the million-copy selling Dog Man series!)
About this deal
Chief and Nurse Lady go with Dog Man to swing, but he chews it and they fall. Chief is worried it was bad, apologizing, but Nurse Lady is only sorry it didn’t happen sooner. Meanwhile, Petey is trying to get help to rebuild his lab at Donna’s Construction, but Li'l Petey and Molly turn up, asking “Wally” to read their comic.
Petey's youthful "mistakes" and "bad choices" were chronicled in the graphic novel where he made his primary debut, Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers. Dog Man also makes an appearance in Frogzilla from Cat Kid Comic Club: Collaborations along with Chief. Dog Man arrives at the police station and the Mean Officers start bullying him because of his cone. Dog Man presses the button on the top, which causes him to change into his Mecha-Suit. The mean officers run away in fright after this encounter, and they hide behind the plant Dog Man usually hides behind. Dog Man turns off the Mecha-Suit and discovers that Chief is writing a love letter to Nurse Lady. Dog Man doesn't like the letter, and expresses this by blowing a raspberry. Chief crumples it up and throws it away and admits that he'll always be alone. Dog Man then comforts Chief after realizing what he's done.Li'l Petey: They have a strong relationship. Dog Man adopted him for a while before Li'l Petey and Petey became a family. Recently, he's been a secondary character, as the series shifted to focus on Petey and his son & his journey to become a better person. When the patient in Chapter 8 eats the candy Genie S. Lady gives out, the bed he was lying on in the previous comic panel is gone.
To Piggy’s chagrin, the Fleas drop pies to an unsophisticated rendition of “Friendly Friends” reprise. Piggy rages as they sing it 153 more times. Outside, Sarah Hatoff and Dog Man run into 80-HD, Petey and Li’l Petey on a bench, who refuse to save the day. She says the same thing Petey said, reconvinces them, and Petey is mad for losing credit for it. The book acts as Pilkey’s voice spoofing protests made internationally during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dav claimed in a Facebook Live interview in 2017 that there maybe 20, 30, or even 40 installments to this series.The title of Chapter 15 is the final line of the 1927 song, "Stardust" by Hoagy Carmichael, with lyrics by Mitchell Parish. Piggy has returned, and his newest plot is his most diabolical yet. WHAT other new villains are on the horizon? WHERE are they all coming from? And WHO will step forward to save the city when scoundrels sabotage our Supa Buddies?

Molly and Li'l Petey talk about Rudolph, Santa, and Batman. Petey is annoyed. At the sight of Petey and Son, Petey is distraught. Molly asks to take the meerkat suit home. Petey sarcastically says yes. Molly believes he isn’t being sarcastic and flies away, Li'l Petey finds Petey's mother's Ukulele, and Petey plays a few notes, because he thought he lost it. Li'l Petey takes Petey to live with him and Dog Man while Petey and Son is rebuilt. Li'l Petey says they still have love and that it lasts forever. Following up with Petey hugging his son and saying: "Forever and ever." The book comes to an end. Petey tells Sarah that he moved to Happy Home Shelter when he was little with his mother, even though they were very poor his mother gave him love. Even after she passed away, Petey felt that love with Li'l Petey and thinks that love can last forever. Sarah ends the show, and can't think of anything going wrong. Then, Sarah, Petey, Li'l Petey and her cameraman are snatched by the sippy cups and Sarah admits that something has gone wrong. A reference to Book 4 when Zuzu growls at Petey, Sarah said "Be nice Zuzu" and Petey said "Yeah, be nice, Zuzu!" This first happened when Lil' Petey's "babysitter" took him to the movie studio.
