Plot Summary

The Snorkland High (or Kelpmore High) band is rehearsing their musical number for the big dance that's coming up when Junior stops the music over how they need a new vibe. Pretty soon, Tadah - another tooting snork from the town of Snork Fort - comes in with her "boyfriend" Tubah, who has a huge sonic snork. Tooter instantly falls for her, but Tubah doesn't think he's good enough for her.  

Tooter gets really angry, so Daffney suggests he build a giant sandcastle to impress Tadah so she would forget about Tubah. However, Tubah sees it and destroys it on impact, and then he challenges him to a race around the lagoon, meaning the winner would take Tadah to the school dance. However, the catch is that Tubah can't use his sonic snork to cheat, but he traps Tooter with it anyway. Junior sees this, but since he's scared of Tubah, he lets him win. 

They visit Gallio for some advice on romance, and he gives him the Tootah Blaster to enhance his tooting. While Tadah is still being used by Tubah, Tooter blasts Tubah. Tadah gets angry becuase Totoer was acting just like Tubah. Junior then confesses that Tooter really won the race and that he was too scared to say no to Tubah. Then Tooter has to go save Tadah and Tubah about to be eaten by a giant clam. Since he has saved her, Tubah lets her go to the dance with him, and the two tooting snorks dance happily together.

Allstar: What are you talking about, Junior?
