Benjy Drive has the idea to start a quiz on the radio show using the homework questions the teacher has assigned. The radios how also has a sponsor of the local pet store. The quiz gets more people listening to the show, and more pets being purchased at the pet store. Everything is going fine until the teacher finds out what is going on.
