Episode Summary

There's trouble on laundry day! Super Grover's cape needs to be washed, but without it, how can he help anyone at the laundromat? Bert's socks are soggy, for starters. Gina's out of fabric softener, and Cookie Monster has a stain. What's a monster to do?

Ever resourceful, Grover turns himself into iron monster, complete with a metal suit! But it turns out iron monster isn't quite as helpful as Super Grover…

Chris asks Leela to "break" his dollar so he can do his laundry, Iron Monster wrestles with the dollar, but Leela explains that Chris just needs quarters: four quarters for each dollar. Then Gabi comes in with two mustard stains on her sweatshirt, and Iron Monster tries to subtract them, but adds stains instead (luckily, Leela shows Iron Monster how to subtract the stains with stain remover). Last, Iron Monster tries to help Maria find her lost sock by using his super power of static cling, but laundry goes flying everywhere. Leela logically suggests they look in the lost sock bin, and they match the pattern together.

Finally, Grover's cape is clean and ready. But maybe Iron Monster is not needed anymore, anyway. Grover announces that the Laundromat already has a fantastic superhero—Leela. Tune into this episode and help your own little superhero build cognitive reasoning skills!
