Plot Summary

Junior is inside the school library, when he finds a book for his upcoming book report on Julius Seastar, who once ruled Snorkland. Meanwhile, Casey is campaigning to be the next class president. He thinks the election stuff is stupid in regards to class president, but thinks it would make him a "great emperor." So as Casey campaigns some more, Junior gives out free clamburgers and candy, and offers less homework and more recess time. Casey pleads for a more honest president, but all they want is Junior.

Turns out 999 students voted for Junior as opposed to Casey, whose one voted was voted by herself. Soon enough, Junior begins to take over the school. Not only does he have Jojo and Daffney become his guards, but he has them do all his homework over the last several years as well as draw art of him. Snorks begin to protest, but they are all thrown into the dungeon. Daffney and Jojo begin to realize their ways and begin to protest, as well. Junior becomes obsessive and traps all of them. Then Casey convinces him to read the back of the book, which says that Julius Seastar was banished from Snorkland, and that he was eaten by a snorkeater. Then they all attack Junior.
