Puppet animation. A long time ago, when wrestlers wore speedos and had back hair, the thumb wrestling ring was a place of heroic deeds, of fair competition, of honor. All was well until a young upstart named Senator Skull arrived on the scene. Skull led a revolt, and split the Thumb Wrestling Federation in two. Those with respect and honor joined the mighty Dexteras. Those with less than a thimbleful of decency joined the evil Sinistras. Now, Senator Skull and his Sinistras will stop at nothing to defeat the mighty Dexteras, take over the Thumb Wrestling Federation, and perhaps the world!

Two on two becomes five on five when the season's Royal Thumble Tag Team Championship spirals out of control. Virtuous Vini Vidi Victory and fan favourite Face Off Phil think they've got the stuff to show Itsy Bitsy and the Visitor who is boss in the TWF ring, but suddenly everything is up for grabs when a locker-room brawl becomes an arena-wide mish-mash of mayhem!

Sinistras and Dexteras start falling left and right, but some fast shooting by Face Off Phil ensures the Dexteras come out on top of the dogpile.
